Shout out to Jason Rawlinson for the great customer service and patience to put up with my many questions and curve balls I threw at him. He helped me in making an informed decision on which course to take with the greatest benefit not only for now, but moving forward too. Thanks Jason!
07:32 31 May 21
Jason Rawlinson was a top bloke. Extremely friendly. Answered all my questions. Highly recommend CAL based of that experience alone. Give the man a raise.
19:22 28 May 21
PERFECT LIFE COACH AND STUDIES MENTORS!!I was given all the information I needed to know and spent nearly 2 hours today on one phone call in regards to one enquiry i was having about a course. I had given -Jason, ‘College for Adult Learning Representative’ , a big headache on the phone call with never-ending questions about my course I’m about to start and he helped me through with each and every one. I have studied on different academic levels in different countries and I’ve honestly never met someone so passionate and eager to mentor me through my journey as if I was his younger brother. If you’re reading this Jason, thank you so much and I’m sure karma will come back to you right like you’ve helped me today on the phone call! 😊
11:09 28 May 21
I was tossing up whether or not to move forward with registering for the double diploma in building and construction management and project management - Jason had tried to call me and I missed it so he flicked me an email and when I replied (at 5.20pm on a Friday night mind you) he called me strait back and said I was a really good candidate for the course, so I registered and he approved it for me strait away so I could enrol and get started over the weekend.He was so good to deal with, easy to talk to and very reassuring. So thank you Jason, for helping me take the next step toward my career goals.
03:39 21 May 21
Well knowledgeable coach's , pleasure to talk to
07:47 18 May 21
Was very impressed how easy it was to apply and the great guidance provided by Jason 🙂 highly recommend 🙂
12:17 16 May 21
I was issued with an Individual Learning Plan with two units exactly the same but rebranded with different unit numbers and icons, upon querying this I was told to proceed with the units but then had to ascertain for myself that they had made an error that effectively led me to many extra hours of study that were of no use. Their attempt to resolve and remedy has been honest, responsive and conducted in a constructive manner, after initially not speaking favourably of them I can now attest to their diligence, and want to improve as a training provider. They do need to improve the grammar throughout all the tutorials and assessments though as the English is littered with mistakes.Overall the course is good and challenging and the coaches are really helpful and knowledgeable too.
07:14 16 May 21
Jason Rawlinson has been an absolute pleasure to deal with and has always been helpful with any questions that I have ever had.
06:59 08 May 21
Just completed my last unit as part of the double diploma qualification in HRM and Leadership & Management with CAL. I've definitely learned so much through this program. The course material included was really useful. I was also fortunate enough to have received the support of a great coach and assessor like Marissa. She was friendly and always happy to assist and provide me with meaningful feedback when I needed help or clarification. Overall, I was satisfied with my experience at CAL.
04:00 07 May 21
I have just signed up and have had a fabulous experience so far. The information and service that was provided to me on my enquiry by Jason was sensational and was one of the reasons I chose to go with this college over other providers.
Kerre is always extremely helpful when I call her for a query. She is very knowledgeable and communications very effectively.
01:43 05 Apr 21
I find the coaches so helpful, thank you Kerri for yesterday. They're logical and encouraging particularly if you're not feeling 100% confident. It's also really refreshing to know that help is easily accessed when needed. So I'd certainly recommended Kerri and the team 🙂

I spent a long time tossing up whether or not to go back to studying...it’s been over 20 years since I last hit the books! While already juggling family, work and other commitments, I was no doubt going to put myself under even more pressure! I decided to take the plunge and, sure enough, it was every bit the anxiety inducing ride I expected it to be!That said, I am so glad I went ahead and did this. Not only will these qualifications assist me in the future but The College For Adult Learning also has coaches like Kerri Waddell to help you through it making it almost worth the premature ageing. If it weren’t for her ability to keep me focused (and sane) then I’m confident I’d have packed it in! She has fantastic knowledge of the course content, an ability to give clear and concise feedback and a calming influence during the coaching calls.If you’re unsure whether or not to go back to studying, I won’t lie, it’s TOUGH! But if you land a coach like Kerri who can keep you on the right track then the only person who can stop you from getting through it......is YOU!
08:11 18 Mar 21
Have had the pleasure of studying a double diploma with CAL. The support throughout the journey has been second to none. I can't thank everyone at CAL enough for helping me succeed. Thank you!
06:16 16 Mar 21
Having been in the workforce for a few decades I am very aware that my resume needed some attention to make it more appealing to prospective employers (now I know it is not a CV!). My experience with Jenni the career counsellor was exceptional. She requested that I send through my current resume for review prior to our meeting. The feedback from Jenni was so helpful. She was encouraging too, and made me feel more sure about how to 'sell myself' to the target employers. I am very impressed with CAL's careers hub - many resources that I will use. Thank you very much for your help.
06:18 08 Mar 21
Great experience with Kerre. She provides helpful feedback and guidance when doing my roleplays. She is also very encouraging and positive.
23:00 23 Feb 21
Helpful and insightful and really there to help you succeed in your learning journeyThanks CAL team
Absolutely amazing start, Jason was super helpful in getting me signed up for the course. we needed to clarify some details via phone . Jason was fun to talk to and very competent in helping me out with my problems. I am looking forward to the start of the course. thank you very much
Has anyone done the Double Diploma of Business and Business administration. needing a little help full time mum . and full time worker doing 40 + hours a week. All suggestions would be helpful
07:14 20 Jan 21
Definitely a positive coaching call. I found it very helpful and from it I feel confident following my new career path.
08:20 07 Dec 20
I have thoroughly enjoyed my studies through the College for Adult Learning. The learning material was easy to read and tutors always on hand when ever you need help. I even receive courtesy emails and reminders on how I was going throughout the process. The staff are of excellent and professional services and I couldn't recommend them more. Thank you CAL for helping me reach my goals in such a short period. I studied the Double Diploma of Building and Construction (Management) along with Project Management and couldn't have done it without the team at CAL. Thank you for providing this wonderful service! I'm sure I will be back to do a Leadership Management course!
Jason was a legend !!! So easy to deal with and I can’t wait to complete my studies and advance my career
22:14 25 Nov 20
I just finished unit 6 of Project Management and leadership. It was a hard, extensive unit but I must admit that it was reworded the knowledge gained especially with the great support of Nasser Babaee that with his experience and advice has kept me going in the right direction. His professionalism is admirable. Thank you

I have recently completed a Double Diploma in Project Management and Leadership & Management through CAL. The coaches at CAL are friendly and very helpful. I was able to complete the course well under the allocated time due to the user friendly platform that CAL have constructed and also aided by the fast response times from CAL staff.My assignments were returned quickly with a detailed response indicating what I did well and what I should pay more attention to which helped shape my thought patterns through the course until I had the bigger picture on what was required from me at the final assessment.CAL staff have always been easy to contact and very considerate to the fact that most learners are working full time while undertaking their studies.I have learnt a great deal through this course and would like to thank everyone at the College for Adult Learning for their assistance through my journey.
06:21 08 Nov 20
I have recently completed my Double Diploma of Humam Resources Management & Leadership Management with CAL - it was a great experience & I enjoyed completing my studies with CAL. I had great support from my coaches & the college throughout my course which made stress free. I would most definitely recommend CAL to all looking to complete a nationally recognised diploma at a self paced level. I completed my course in 2.5 years while working full time, the college was so supportive during my 2.5 years of studies with them! I am now qualified in the field I have been passionate about which mean I can now confidently apply for roles with HRM thanks to my new Double Diploma I have completed with CAL! I highly recommend CAL to prospect students!

Celebrating that I recently completed my Double Diploma in Business Administration & Leadership and Management. I feel that I learnt valuable skills and knowledge to assist my career. I commenced this course during a period of not having a workplace due to taking leave to care for my aged mother and wanting to improve my work skills. I used all of the Case Study resources which were relevant to units and this provided good direction and material to complete assessments. With my previous work knowledge and experience I was able to fast track quite a few of the units and then other units I found it valuable to work through the tutorials and activities to gain further knowledge.My coaches and assessors over the course were Meagan and Marissa and they were both wonderful facilitators, being friendly, encouraging and supportive. It was always a pleasure to talk with them and also made me feel comfortable completing role play assessments. If I needed any clarification of requirements it was easy just to book a call and then gain insight to get the tasks completed. Thank you Meagan and Marissa, you gave me wonderful inspiration to complete the course.My whole experience across the course was that it was very supportive from all of the team at CAL from the beginning to the finish, including the student administration team and the online learning platform is easy to use.It feels rewarding to have completed the course and it’s given me greater confidence now that I’m back in the workforce.Jenni Pickert
04:14 05 Nov 20
I was about to quit due to things happening in my personal life and they really really understood me and gave me alternative options to finish my Diploma. Thanks College for Adult Learning.
I have just completed the Double Diploma of Business and Leadership Management. The course was closely aligned with the skills I was developing in my role at my workplace. I was priviledged to have such an excellent, professional, supportive tutor in Marissa Litonjua. She was always encouraging, very helpful, approachable and accommodating. I will miss the weather updates from sunny Queensland. Thanks for being a vital part of my career aspirations. Jen

2020 a year of turmoil and uncertainty, CAL have maintained there standards and assistance through out.
20:39 29 Oct 20
Extremly impressed with the level of service
07:19 27 Oct 20
A very detailed and systematically designed course with excellent; helpful and friendly staff members. I would definitely recommend Nasser Babaee- a good mentor and a guide.
01:17 26 Oct 20
I completed a double diploma with CAL. I found the material easy to access with their online dashboard. I felt that there was material available for various learning styles - which sometimes is missed with on-line learning. Learning material was perfect for me as it allowed me to push and challenge myself and get the most out of the course that I required. The whole team were supportive in my learnings and offered help with work / study / life balance when I was time poor due to work commitments, which I feel is a nice personal touch, they understand the human side and you are not just a number. I 100% recommended CAL as a study platform.
My experience with CAL feels like I have invested my money well. Thank you CAL
05:28 07 Oct 20
I was very impressed with my experience today with my career coach. Jenni gave me an informative consultation on how to further my career. I felt that I have invested well with CAL. Thank you so much.
01:33 28 Sep 20
Very helpful, informative conversation, allowed me to establish if I was going on the right track with my future career. Thanks Nasser

The team at CAL has prepared relevant and diverse online content to make it easier to study. The coaches are warm, encouraging & supportive to deal with. I'm thoroughly enjoying the Double Diploma in Project Management and Leadership & Management.
I have just completed my double diploma in HR Management and Business Admin. This has been one of the best online platforms that I have used for my learning experiences. The content Is excellent and very thorough, there are various methods you can use, depending on your learning style. There is a lot of work, but is totally rewarding as you work through it. My biggest take home is if you have any issues or get stuck is to always communicate with the lecturers or even the office staff, the whole team is super supportive. I struggled a couple of times with work time pressures where it got too much, the CAL team where very supportive and assisted me through it. Kerry and Marissa where both great facilitators when working though my major assignments, and thanks them both for making it an easy process. At the end of the day CAL want you to pass and will work with you through the process. Thanks to the CAL team!!! 😎😎
01:12 05 Aug 20
I recommend students who are looking for a well spread out modules covering all areas of a topic. The course module and tasks enables to think in a practical manner. As a result I feel confident to enter workforce. The coaches are amazing. No question is silly or too small to ask. Very helpful & positive coaches.
Starting my HR Diploma in March 2020, being part of CAL has been an amazing experience. The information is very rich and up-to-date. The staff and assessors are extremely helpful. Thank you CAL for helping me transition back into HR and into the workforce !
03:50 28 Jul 20
The College for Adult Learning has provided me with the best learning experience that I needed to go back into HR ! The information is very rich and up-to-date. Thank you CAL. I look forward to enrolling in more programs in the future (after completing my Diploma in HR).
I strongly recommend the studies at CAL. My experience so far was exceptional; I learned immensely and always had the support of all team. Great people, Great teachers, Great school. The methodology and the contents are beneficial and aligned with the requirements of the work industries
I recently finished my double diploma of building and construction / project management through CAL. It is a great course and I learnt a lot along the way - a great experience and there is always plenty of support through the CAL team and the facebook group. Nasser was very helpful throughout the course as well!
I have just completed my double diploma in project management and leadership management. It has a lot of information and I learned so much. The price you pay in money and mentality was worth having these two diplomas now and I can’t thank CAL enough. I have always had good experiences with the coach’s, timing and content. I would recommend studying with CAL to anyone. Just chip away at it and keep motivated.
In the current climate, we are all facing I have found that my coach and also the student support and administration has been VERY helpful, reassuring and timely in their communication and help. I enjoy the course and my experience from the start has been great. The effort is on me to contact and reach out and once I did this the team was on my questions immediately.
I have studied with CAL for the past 22 months, completing a double diploma of Practice Management and Business Administration, Meagan my accessor has been a wealth of knowledge and assistance in developing my career in Practice Management. By learning the modules of the course this has allowed me to transition smoothly into my new career. I had already accepted my new role prior to completing this course, with commitment, discipline, and perseverance and an end goal the double diplomas are achievable.I strongly recommend CAL to anyone looking to further their education !!
Thank you for extending the expiring date of my current course.It is clear that the College for Adult Learning is a institute of high ethical values, where the student's education is still superior to potential monetary gain.GOOD ON YOU.I will highly recommend the College for Adult Learning to any future students, and will also make a point to promote CAL to all young people in the hospitals where I work. Dr Eldrian Basson - Clinical Epidemiologist
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.
Just submitted my final unit for the diploma of PM, it has been quite a journey, nothing but great great support from the CAL team, will definitely looking at the next course after a short break in study. Highly recommended for anyone looking to study online. CAL are fantastic.
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 have officially finished my double diploma with CAL and I must say it was a great experience. The content was terrific and the staff/assessors were very prompt with their responses. I highly recommend if you enjoy online studying.
I have just submitted Unit 10 and I must say it has been a tough course but feel I have put in what I wanted to get out of the course. I wanted to push myself so only asked for coaching advice a couple of times. Hard to juggle with kids and work but if you plan your time well it will work. Recommended course content and coaching were quick to respond. Thanks CAL
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 !!
