CHC52015 - Diploma of Community Services

Top marks to you and your organisation.

This whole process has been enjoyable, challenging and educational.

I have particularly relished telephone conversations wherein I was sharing experiences with someone who had a credible knowledge base.

Paul Hogan

I've been so happy and thankful for National College Australia in helping me reach my dreams.

Two months after receiving my certificate I got a job!

My journey in studying the Certificate III Allied Health has taught me a lot. At first, I thought I couldn't make it but because I had a goal and a dream to land a job I really wanted, I just trusted National College Australia and most importantly I motivated myself to finish the course to start a new career, and to get a job, which I did!

Hazel Ranile

Without his (Sam - Assessor) ongoing support I don't think I would've completed my course. I can't thank him enough for his patience and understanding.

Initially when I enrolled to complete a certificate online through National College Australia I was overwhelmed at the idea of being a single mother, working full time and online study.

Sam guided me through each unit and was always encouraging and happy to answer all my questions.

Danica Clark

WOW, Yahoo and Yay! I'm feeling great.

A great big huge thank you to you for your time and support throughout the duration of this course.

I believe a credit should go out to you for your amazing response and turn around time with assessing my units. This quick response time really reduced my nerves and would help any anxiety that people may have developed.

Getting good feedback was both refreshing and reassuring and getting the right answer of 'competent' from you was always welcoming.

Thank You again!
