Everybody has different needs and here at CA we understand that. Your student journey is important to us and we want to ensure that it is a positive experience. The duration of the course depends on several factors such as RPL and your learning needs. Generally, it would be expected that you would meet the duration, but this will be advised through your educator. This is organic, meaning that it can be adjusted at any time to suit your needs.

Study Method


We like to make things simple and using technology we are able to achieve this by using animation scenarios, videos, games and interactive learning to ensure that our students have the best experience possible. Whilst we believe that online is the way of the future, it still needs to be enhanced with some human interaction and that's why you will have access to your own personal educator.
