This is what one of our recent students said on Trustpilot (9.2/10 Overall Rating):

Highly recommend e-Careers.

So easy to purchase and enroll on to courses. The training advisor I was dealing with (Rhiannon Ball) was brilliant, so helpful and advised in courses that would be tailored to my needs. There was no hard sell, I felt as if she was happy to advise even if I didn't purchase a course at this time and there was no pressure to buy anything. The student area of the website is so easy to navigate and it's easy to add in the courses you've purchased. They can take up to 3 days to load ready to be used however I think this is more so for over weekends when it may be slow as so far it's taken a matter of hours for my course to become active. I bought a package with multiple courses and I was able to arrange for the start dates to be staggered so i don't have to study them all at once. Test centres for the exams were easy to locate also and I am able to sit my exams within a few miles of where I live and not have to travel silly distances.

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body.
