I'm doing a double diploma in quality auditing and compliance through CAL. Having completed other diploma and advanced diploma courses through other RTO's, I am very impressed by the content, delivery and service provided to me by the tutors (such as Parveen Dahiya) and student support staff (such as Galit Akerman). So far, the experience with CAL has been exemplary.

I don’t know if I would have made it through without Marissa’s encouragement and motivation haha! Thank you so much to the teams at CAL. You are my number 1 choice for my next course!

Marissa Litonjua was my most frequent Assessor/Trainer along the journey and made the experience a lot less daunting. Right up until the last unit, Marissa was available to provide coaching and feedback. I am super excited to receive my Diploma. Thanks CAL

As a full time employee, I found it difficult to juggle work and study. CAL has provided me with the opportunity to study my Double Diploma of Practice Management online with the ongoing support of my assistant coach Meagan. She always puts her students first and follows up with a courtesy email to see how they are progressing. She always offers a helping hand by reaching out to her students when in need. I highly recommend new students to enrol with CAL.

"The College for Adult Learning has been incredibly supportive, especially in accommodating my ADHD-related challenges.

Overall, I found the Diploma of Business Administration (Records and Information Management) useful, the course covered a wide scope of technical skills and soft skills. The assessors were particularly helpful, Marissa provided valued feedback and support to help me complete all of the units, especially the challenging ones! Support from assessors like Marissa is crucial when completing a course like this remotely and self paced so it was appreciated and helped me get through it.

I have just completed my Certificate IV of Marketing and Communication through CAL. It has been a postive experience learning through them.

I’ve been studying with CAL for 6 months now and I am enjoying my course and the support I am receiving for the course. I’d actually previously enrolled and I didn’t complete my course due to personal factors, but when I explored the idea of re-enrolling Stephanie was really helpful and encouraging. Since then I am 5 units in and the support I get from Kerrie as one of the coaches is outstanding. She is so helpful, very informative and supportive. The only thing that I would say I struggle with is when you need support you usually have to wait at least a few days for availability for a call or return email. I understand there are lots of students, sometimes you’re unable to move forward with questions until you’ve spoken to someone which can be frustrating when balancing a work/study schedule. Overall I am enjoying the experience with CAL and the content and content formats they are supplying!

I found my whole experience with CAL to be a positive one. It's been many years since I have been in a "school" environment, so it took some discipline to get through this course. I set myself a 2 hour minimum study period each day which took a fair bit of effort and focus, as I work full-time plus have a family to look after. It was hard initially, but after a couple of weeks, I found my rhythm and it was smooth sailing after that. I also didn't put any pressure on myself-if I had a bad day at work-I didn't touch any study as I found no joy when I hit the books in that frame of mind, and that made it hard work. So, I found giving study a miss for one or two days actually beneficial, and when I did go back, I was more involved and interested in my course than before. I have nothing but praise for the support I received from the whole team at CAL - from the admin staff to the tutors. They responded quickly and the coaching calls helped me to get to the next questions/units quickly. A big thank you to each of you for the part you played in helping me achieve a long-held goal. I highly recommend CAL to anybody who is looking to take on some study. The content is laid out well and easily followed. The exercises for each topic and the assessments went a long way in ensuring that the information absorbed was drilled home.

CAL provided a great opportunity to learn at your own pace. I would highly recommend their Diploma of Project Management if you are new to the field and looking for an opportunity to learn as you do. The Diploma greatly supported the project I was working on at the time, running me through all the steps as I implemented them.

I have just completed a double diploma with CAL. I found all of the staff there very supportive indeed and did not experience any rudeness whatsoever. Unforeseen circumstances meant that i had to request an extension , CAL were very professional in their response and understanding. Studying online is not for everyone and can be difficult if you are returning back to study after a long period. However CAL are there to support you it just takes a little bit of time to get a response from your coach, but once you are speaking with them they clarify and help you with your course work. I would recommend sourcing a study group either students from CAL or somewhere else where you can bounce ideas off each other regarding the course. This will help you as you work through the self directed learning and complete your tasks and activities in the course.Thanks to all the team at CAL who helped me through my course and got me to the end.

I really enjoy my studies at the college of Adult Learning, ( I am studying the double Diploma in Human Resources and Leadership Management)the trainers are helpful and very easy to talk to. It’s taken me a bit longer to complete than expected but I can go at my own pace and I now book regular coaching calls to keep me active in my studies. Over all, I’m really happy I choose this course and this college.

I’m currently doing a double diploma of construction management and Project Management. All the coaches and staff at CAL have been very helpful and the studies have been great as they provide all the text books and study resources that I need to understand all processes and regulations involved in the field I am pursuing.

I recently completed the Double Diploma in Project Management | Leadership and Management. From my initial enquiry and dealings with Tristan who was super helpful, informative and supportive, through to starting the course with the help of Student engagement coach David who helped me every step of the way and checked in to see how I was getting on, The College for Adult Learning was a fantastic learning experience which exceeded my expectations. With each Unit completed the next would be unlocked straight away and marked within the times stated (generally in half the time). The feedback from the coaches was the best of all always super encouraging and supportive but also included much needed advice in areas that may require extra study or focus. Anything I was unsure of I simply booked a time that suited me for a coach to call me to discuss anything I was unsure about. I highly rate and recommend CAL and look forward to studying with them again in the near future! Thanks so much guys !!

The entire BSB training package has undergone a review and overhaul from PWC and AISC, and a new course was announced in late October, 2020. While there will be changes to this course - including updated, different and additional units - they have a teach-out period and can still be delivered and completed in its current form until late April, 2022. While this may be enough time to complete your studies with the current version of the qualification, we've already started planning potential options and pathways to transition into the newer version once it’s available on our scope, and we will keep all of our students updated, supporting them through the entire process. We want to make sure that our students get the best possible outcomes from these updates, and we work hard to minimise any adverse effects if you want or need to transition to the new version of the qualification. You can find more information here: Training.gov and PWC.

Every RTO will need to address and action this same set of updates, but not all RTOs will be able to deliver transparent communications, robust processes or flexible options to their students. We would urge you to make decisions based on our current offering with the forward knowledge that they are subject to change, and ensure you're doing your due diligence when evaluating providers and how they will inform and support you through this process. Please contact your Learning Consultant to learn more and discover our unique approach to support.
