    I enjoyed both the written and the video tutorials. They were both really clear and easy to understand. I really enjoyed the course content and most importantly completing and passing this course.

    I can study in my own time.
    It’s a comprehensive course.
    Some questions in the assessments can be confusing but I enjoyed the course and I would not hesitate to do another one if I have the opportunity.

    Arrange to have access to the Xero System for the period doing the course , this way we will be able to follow our transaction done and be able to view outcome through the reports. This will also help understanding the way Xero system works and calculate. In the manual there is also not a clear understanding if you should do the transactions on Xero therefore in most cases Xero manual and the Xero doesn’t information doesn’t correspond, such as my payroll didn’t info didn’t correspond to the activity report and could not balance. It will be good to do actual transactions to see the end result. (Start at point A to Z and be able to identify the result)

    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.

    The overall training material was great & also the practice sections that you could do to learn parts you haven’t seen before. I had basic knowledge of Xero but also knew how to do the payruns & payroll before doing the course.
    I enjoyed it immensely

    It looked like it was approved by Xero The assumption seems to be that students will take the full year to do the course but I worked on it full time and therefore was frustrated by having to wait for the next part of the course to be released to me. This website does not work very well and it can be difficult to find what you are looking for. The list of grades did not appear to reflect what I had actually achieved
    I did not need the study planner section.

    Bruce Garrett

    The feedback and advice from my course tutor (Bhavik Daya) was always very helpful, thanks. I especially enjoyed the Certificate in Xero module. I felt the Certificate in Xero Payroll module could have been a little bit more clearly worded in places but still a very useful module. The Advanced Certificate in Xero module was also very useful although I missed the topic quizzes that I enjoyed in the other 2 modules. But overall a VERY helpful course that I would recommend to others, thanks Career Academy!

    Hi, I’m loving it, I just assign time in evenings or whenever I have a free moment and complete small bits at a time. Wonderful online learning.

    I have actually been using xero for years so it was more to get the recognised diploma for my CV. However I have picked up some wonderful new bits that make life easier which has been great. All those bits that are not necessary to make xero work for you but are nice to know’s.

    Thank you for being a fabulous education provider I will definitely recommend you.

    Sheree Hunter

    I think the course is brilliant. I work for a Charitable Trust and we switched to Xero in 2015. Although I use Xero to process our accounts, I’ve learned new skills and new features which will save me a lot of time in data entry. I can’t wait to get to the Chart of Accounts as that was beyond my understanding and we had an Accountant set that up for us.

    Could anything be improved? No none that I can think of.

    I am wondering, if I’m going too slow, or not spending enough time. Is there a time limit to complete the certificate in Xero. If I spent ten hours a week, where should I be on week three of the course. I will ask my tutor when I log into the course.

    Once I’ve finished this course, I would be interested in doing another.
