Starting a diploma again as an adult and doing it online was a really overwhelming step for me, I even looked into cancelling my course as i didn't think I'd pass and worried that I'd struggle to get the hang of the online structure; But I am so thankful for Tonya and her ongoing support and encouragement. She is the reason I stuck it out, and I'm so glad I did because I managed to complete and pass my diploma. She helped explain any questions I was stuck on and pushed me to keep going. So thank you Tonya, I couldn't and wouldn't have done this without you!

Hi Christopher.

In this email, I would like to thank you for your professional and effective guidance during my online learning in your college.

Your dedicated and passionate advice on all subjects were always a big help for me.

I have no words to express how grateful am that I have the Diploma completed and how much I enjoyed communicating with you.

Without your daunting efforts, I could never have made it in such time and with satisfactory quality.

Thank you once again for being an incredible teacher.

Kind regards,

Hi Daniel

Very happy for you to use my feedback.

I would also like to add that when I had an issue with a particular aspect of the course I emailed Sue and explained why I had issues with the content. Straightaway she emailed me back and said that it was being discussed which to me showed that what was being emailed was taken into consideration. That, from a student point of view, is fantastic.

Even when you took over from Sue, it must have been so difficult but I had no issues with answering of emails. In fact, you kept me up to date with everything. So for that I am thankful that it was seamless.

Definitely would use First Choice College for any future studies.

Kind regards

I have recently completed a Certificate IV in Education support with First Choice College (FCC). It was a great experience. The staff were fantastic and completely supported me every step of the way. They responded promptly to any query I had and were always available when I phoned or emailed. The learning materials and student learning portal were excellent and easy to navigate and use. I have learnt so much and am thankful that I took this step in my career development with FCC.  Thank you FCC!

Good Afternoon First Choice College,

I would like to provide some positive feedback in regards to my tutor Tonya Sela-Pade.

As you know, I have been studying with First Choice College for quite some time now, and have been procrastinating on the last three units.

Out of the blue I received a call from Tonya last weekend, who was checking in as she could see I was very close to finishing my double diploma. Tonya’s call gave me the confidence to pick up where I left off and finish.

I am absolutely stoked that I pulled it together with the support of Tonya and was able to achieve my double diploma.

Please recognise Tonya and the service she provides her students. This experience was exactly what I needed to get over that line. She is a true asset to the company.

If you need to discuss further, I am happy for you to call.

I have completed my Diploma of Leadership and Management, Certificate IV in WHS and Certificate IV in TAE from your organisation and have referred a few of my friends and family members to study from your college.

But just wanted to take a second to acknowledge Tonya and her efforts. It's not always you come across people that are actually willing to put in the time and effort to support and offer advice with a smile and willingness to do so. Definitely makes the whole study/learning process less daunting, less stressful and more enjoyable. Thank you again. Regards

Dear Sue

I would like to congratulate you on the Certificate IV in Education Support. It is an amazing course and I truly enjoyed studying it! The content was engaging right up to the last module. The modules are well written, easy to understand and logically sequenced. The assessments are relevant and reflect the course content. Inclusion of the Library electives is very innovative and allowed me to expand my skill set beyond the basic Teacher Aide qualification.

Sue, your professionalism and dedication to student success should be commended! If given the opportunity I would certainly recommended First Choice College as a preferred course provider. I could not fault the team at First Choice College. They were always professional, competent and responded promptly and competently to any request.

In summary, well done to Sue and the team at First Choice College. You are providing a quality, educational service with excellent student support and customer service.

Kind regards

I have just finished my Diploma in Business with FCC and I want to give some feedback on my trainer and course.

Honestly, Senada was great. This is my second assessment piece completed since finishing school in 2015 and I couldn't be happier.

I didn't really start much of the course at the beginning and there was a period when I wasn't doing any work on it because I was nervous that I couldn't do it. She rang me and had a phone consultation with me about time management and about how I needed to make this a priority. It's because of Senada that I was able to complete this Diploma early, whilst working full-time. It has been hard and I have had to study outside of work but it has been a great experience, and for me it seemed to be the perfect course when you've finished school and need something to better your professional development and skills in the workplace.

I feel like I could start another course tomorrow! (Might give it a break though first!)

Thank you for the opportunity to learn with FCC. 😊

Hi, I have recently completed BSB51415 Diploma of Project Management through First Choice College. I was extremely impressed with the entire process from first signing up to the completion of my diploma. All staff that I dealt with were helpful, knowledgeable, very responsive and easy to deal with. I would like to give special mention to Tonya Sela-Pade. Her professionalism and easy to deal with mannerism made my experience so much more enjoyable and she made what was initially a daunting task seem easy and effortless. Tonya was very easy to talk to and possesses the ability to make you feel comfortable and explains things in a way that is easy to understand. I would not hesitate recommending Tonya or First Choice College to anyone thinking of taking on a new learning experience. Regards,

Hi Team,

Just a quick email to say thank you for facilitating a seamless RPL process for my Diplomas.

Tonya made the process a really positive experience and it was really refreshing to talk to someone so knowledgeable and understanding.

Tonya has also inspired me to think of future courses.

I would recommend the RPL process to anyone who is currently working in the field and not to be hesitant about it!

It's great to be recognised for your hard work!

I work full time and frequent travel interstate in my role. So enrolling in two Certificate IV courses with First Choice College I knew it would take dedication and commitment to complete.

Initially I thought I would never enrol in an online course as it wouldn’t deliver the level of knowledge I was seeking. However I was more than impressed by the training environment First Choice College offers.

The learning portal is so clearly laid out and easy to navigate enabling you to move between modules easily and fluently. The course content was presented well and questionnaires and summative assessments broadened your course knowledge by requiring you to research and access regulatory and industry based information.

Whilst being an online course I was impressed by the level of services provided by support staff and the efficiency of services to assist in progressing the course flow and provide guidance on processes and the portal system.

The level of guidance, assistance and direction provided by the course trainer was second to none. Booking one on one time, or calling into virtual classrooms provided opportunities to gain valuable feedback throughout every stage of the course.

Overall I found the First Choice College education experience well structured, professional and current with legislative and industry requirements. As a result I am returning to undertake the Diploma in Workplace Health and Safety knowing that I am receiving a balance of theoretical and practical experience at my own pace in an easy to use virtual environment.

I’ve just completed my dual qualification of BSB40215 Certificate IV in Business and BSB40515 Certificate IV in Business Administration. The dual certificate program was a great way to strengthen and add to my existing skills and knowledge, the assignments were interesting and challenging and very comprehensive. First Choice College were very supportive throughout the journey; the staff were compassionate and empathetic with my personal circumstances and encouraged me to continue to completion. I would like to thank all the First Choice College staff particularly Kylie in Administration with all of their assistance and to Senada who gave continuously encouraging feedback which helped provide me with the motivation to cross the finish line and was very much appreciated. I highly recommend First Choice College for their online learning experience and their investment in their students.

I recently completed a dual qualification Certificate 4 in Business and Business Administration with First Choice College. Having studied via long distance learning previously, I am in the position to recognise the challenges and compare my experiences. From the get go, communication with First Choice College was direct and easy, so I felt confidence in the educator I had chosen. I found that additional support from my trainer, Jacob Shaw, was only an email away. As a busy mum, this efficient communication paired with flexibility was priceless. The cost of the course was excellent and the course material was thorough, allowing me to gain a strong understanding of the skills and knowledge I was seeking. I operated a business prior to this course, and can guarantee there were skills within the coursework that reinforced my current abilities and others that were new and highly beneficial. I would choose to study with First Choice College in the future and highly recommend them to other prospective students.

From the time I first began to search for an RTO to endure further study and sought for information from First Choice College, I was impressed by not only the course fee which was on sale, but by the efficiency with Kylie in administration. From both phone calls and emails returned within the hour to her friendliness, I was excited to engage in study from day one.

When it came to completing the modules, trainer and assessor Barb couldn’t be more supportive and knowledgeable, adapting the learning material and providing ongoing guidance in order to develop an understanding for the requirements of the unit.

There truly was zero fault in all area of operations that I had to associate with. Thank you First Choice College, you went above and beyond and I know that whenever I review my resume or reflect upon my experience with your entire organisation, I will always have a very positive and grateful outlook!

I recently completed the Diploma of Project Management through First Choice College and was very pleased overall with the experience. The course content was well presented, and the assignments were both interesting and challenging. Being able to work at your own pace was a definite bonus as I was able to fit my studies in to suit my schedule.

I found the college to be most helpful throughout the course and they were particularly accommodating when I needed to take time out for medical reasons. Fortunately, I did not need to use the extension that was granted.

Finally, I would like to personally thank Kylie Yeo for all her assistance throughout the course. Right from day one until now Kylie has always been extremely helpful and efficient.

If you are looking for a flexible way to achieve your BSB51415 diploma online, I would not hesitate to recommend First Choice College.

The team at First Choice College were amazing and incredibly helpful. I joined First Choice College mainly to advance my knowledge in Work Health and Safety. The course was excellent and fantastic. I really enjoyed working with everyone, from receptionists, administrators and course instructors whom I have interacted with during my time at First Choice College.

You are all legends and thank you all for helping me to complete my Certificate IV in Work Health and Safety.

Just wanted to provide some feedback on my experience, while completing my Project Management Diploma with First Choice College.

It has been a truly enjoyable experience. The support I received from the trainer and the administration team was amazing through the entire process. The supporting material and assessment layout was also great and easy to navigate.

The team was also very flexible with regards to my availability due to both working hours / rosters and the time difference of 2 hours being in Western Australia.

I cannot thank the FCC team enough for the support and guidance provided throughout the course and will be recommending FCC to my colleagues and friends.

First Choice College is the one stop learning shop for any and everyone. I am heavily dyslexic but I knew I had a passion and wanted to learn it... I applied for the WHS certificate 4. I remember the butterflies in my tummy getting my first modules. Feeling a little unsure and overwhelmed from my school years of falling behind my class and struggling to understand and keep up.  I finally thought just pick up the phone and ask questions. What I was greated with was amazing kind staff at the ready to help and teach. The warmest understanding team of professionals with the best positive attitude you can have. My confidence was so strong after talking with my trainers I was able to have a new understanding on education. Like a seed my mind had the perfect condition to grow stronger, warmth, kindness and compassion and now have confidence in my own style. To know that it's ok to think differently and be supported through any learning style is amazing. For every person who knows they want to learn but feel overwhelmed by the any learning difficulties... First Choice College can help you achieve your maximum potential with easy and professional development learning skill set being talked. The training I received ment I needed some one on one time with my trainers on the phone, again slam dunk. If I left a message with my trainers it was a quick response. My work was always marked quickly and any resubmitted work was explained to me. The portal is great for a confidence booster letting you know how much you have progressed. So give it a go. You owe yourself a amazing confidence booster experience in first class education with First Choice College. Thankyou to everyone. Kind regards as always,

First Choice offers an affordable and excellent way to achieve the certificates needed in either running your own business or obtaining employment. The delivery method is excellent, with each unit available online and once completed, you simply hit the ‘submit’ button. The assessors then mark your work and message you back with comments, any questions that needs to be reviewed, etc. As you are nearing completion of a unit, the next one is released to you so you never have to wait around for marking – you can move straight into the next unit. I found the course material challenging at times, but in a good way. Some material was familiar to me; some was not, so there was a great balance of the familiar and the new. I loved how each question in the units were completed online and you could easily see how far you were into the unit – as it showed 40% complete, 60%, etc. I learned a great deal from the course(s) and found the admin staff and the assessors to be friendly, approachable, and available when I needed to ask questions.

I am impressed by the very high quality of the course resource materials provided by First Choice. They are thorough and complete and very easy to navigate your way through the subject matter.
