Axiom College provided relevant, succinct training which allowed my son to successfully complete a school based traineeship. This partnership gave him an amazing opportunity to gain confidence, credible qualifications and industry training that has launched his career post school.

I did the Business Admin 3 course to help me reenter the workforce and I found the course a great way to update my skills and get back into a work mode. It took me a little bit to get back into it and I was a little confused with some early online testing, that actually wasn't meant to be used,so once I realised it was reading, trying and applying what I'd learned- I got into the course much easie r. Just check with your assessor if there are any units undergoing changes or updates. Also in some areas you may need to do a little extra research or tutorials on certain elements like Excel or PowerPoint if you have never used them before. But I think that is a useful skill to utilise too. I found the trainers/assessors were very approachable through both email and phone calls. Would be happy to recommend Axiom to my friends.
