    It can do done within my own timeframes. The exam/quiz questions were at times confusing, play on words making it hard to know which wasy to answer the question

    The course contents are quite boring actually. The course tutors are a little slow to respond and are non-specific in their answers, they just give you a link to read about your question. This is not helpful, obviously, otherwise we wouldn’t ask you directly.

    Ease of online system, being able to do it at home and in my own time. The time it takes to grade assessments. Eager to get course completed and I feel like I lose momentum while my work is being assessed.

    I have finished the course. When I finish the course it was hard to tell I had finished. It wasn’t clear and I had to ring the Academy to check that everything was completed. There was also a mix up with my course completion dates, which I did check when I rang in once. once the Academy realised it was wrong, I was put under a lot of time pressure to get the course completed but they never contacted me to let me know that they had made a mistake it wasn’t until I logged in I found out. I found the content good and I enjoy working through it at my own pace. when I rang in and spoke to anyone they were quite helpful and always polite and professional. I purchased the course notes which were good but I did have to print out quite a bit that wasn’t complete in the purchased course notes.

    Ease of use, doing the quiz’s and assessments was easy to follow. My due date changed and I don’t know why. I have sent 3 emails asking why and I haven’t heard anything back. This is frustrating as I am going away and will not complete it by the date that they changed it to.

    The course would be significant when I firstly catch up with it, during the learning process, I feel helpful from outstanding teacher's support. I hope I could learn more realistic example from the special topic , such as using Xero to complete the bookkeeping and the taxation payment. which would be appreciate for a foreign students! Thank you very much giving me the chance to share some feeling by myself! The Career Academy would be wonderful for every one, especially for some overseas students and workers! As far as i concerned, I think the course would be helpful to give me key knowledge , which I thank would be vivid useful for me to apply in China nowadays, since the opening up policy has been set up within global economic development. I think the career academy would be very successful in the future! I am very glad and appreciate that I could be a student at the Career Academy! My email address is 1217866885@QQ.COM, my phone number is 13718226560 Thank you very much!
    I am very looking forward to receiving tutor's message ! Best regard! Rui Wang

    I didnt require tutor help so cannot comment on this.
    Overall I found the course helpful and informative, however, some of the info has not been updated for some time and new features and reports on Xero are not covered. Also, a lot of the learning material was from the Xero help pages which is free access

    I have used SAP for years but I am aware that many smaller companies and therefore jobs require experience with Xero. something could be included on journals. There was no mention of how to prepare journals. The website guideline of 10 hours to complete each of the certificate in Xero accounting, the certificate in Xero payroll and the advanced certificate in Xero I dont think is realistic if students do it properly and do the necessary reading.

    I loved the assignment. It was challenging but I live helping and coaching people and this fit in well with that passion. Was not just us answering questions but more us giving back but in the same time checking our knowledge and know how

    It was suggested to me by administration at Xero when i asked about a course for Payroll There was nothing on Journals, which would have been good to understand. the Final Assignment for the Advanced Xero course is a great way to make sure you have actually learned from the course, because of the detail needed.

    We liked the idea of online courses and The Career Academy was providing the qualification we required at a very competitive rate. I would prefer if Topics such as (Topic 7) Customising Templates were earlier in the course.
    It is a set up function and should be addressed before Reconciling etc.
    The tips are very helpful and I did pick up some handy shortcuts thanks.The range of courses on offer is excellent.

    A friend was doing this course at the time so I decided to enroll. It would have been hepful to have more practical exercises to work through from start to finish so that you have a complete example to work through instead of partial bits of information. I understood the principles of the GST reconciliation but it would have been good to have more data within the exercise to work with.

    A guideline of what you should be doing and when within Xero would be helpful
    e.g rec bank accounts weekly
    gst rec monthly
    tasks you should be doing weekly, monthly, yearly etc
