Highly motivated and extremely organised: is online learning right for you?


 

Every now and then, a graduating student writes a Review that we believe really captures what we try to do.  Instead of them ending up hidden among the others, we will share them with you, and try to explain why we think they are so appropriate.

Here is what Trudy said: 

“Firstly be aware this course is very demanding particularly in the volume of assessments/workload. To undertake it online you need to be highly motivated & extremely organised. If you can do this I highly recommend Fortress Learning…  Emma is everything you can hope for & more. She’s not on call 24/7 but that is not an impediment to success… I’ve done post graduate university study & found the TAE more difficult but however to use a cliche with Fortress you can do it.”

Your ‘why’: to comply or to perform?


Every now and then, a Triple Business Diploma student writes a Review that we believe deserves to be featured and discussed. Instead of them ending up hidden among the others, we will share them with you, and let you know our thoughts about them.

This is what Raj said:

When I started this program almost a year ago, my aim was to quickly go through a program to maintain industry currency and compliance in an industry sector that is becoming more and more complicated with stricter governance standards.

However, as I started working through the materials, I was pleasantly surprised at the level of support, and professionalism from you and your team.  That level of professionalism forced me to stop and reconsider my motives, and apply what I already knew, more professionally, and as would be expected from a professional in the L&D sector.

I want to thank you and your team for all your support and efficiency in making this possible.  As you know, in this year I have also embarked on a new business venture and having someone from your office monitoring my progress and keeping me on track has been a huge plus.

I would recommend your RTO – and I do – to anyone looking to further their studies.

All the best to you and your team.

Best Regards

Raj Nathoo, Fortress Learning Triple Diploma of Business, Business Administration and Leadership and Management Graduate.

Studying a Cert IV TAE: Knowing Me, Knowing You


Every now and then, a Cert IV TAE student writes a Review that we believe deserves to be featured and discussed. Instead of them ending up hidden among the others, we will share them with you, and let you know our thoughts about them.

This is what Lou said:

“The written course materials met requirements however if anyone is doing a course in their ‘spare time’ be prepared for no real time access to trainers for assistance or help with these materials or the course in general.

You will end up training yourself which means you will have to have incredible drive and resilience to finish – which comes more as a relief than a feeling of achievement when it comes.

I wouldn’t recommend the course for people unless they have time to study and interact with the trainers during the day or support (and study time) from their workplace. It is a soul destroying and lonely experience otherwise.”

Here is what Angela said: 

“I signed on with this company with reservations after unsuccessfully trying to start studies with another online company. I need not have worried. Bryan and his team were professional from the outset. Enrollment was simple and commencing studies breeze. I always knew what was required of me during the course. Further advice direction and support was only ever an email or call away. Very professional company with caring people to assist learners. Will study with this company again & wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to others.”

Frustrating, but necessary


Every now and then, a TAE Diploma student writes a Review that we believe really captures what Fortress Learning tries do. Instead of them ending up hidden among the others, we will share them with you, and try to explain why we think they are so appropriate.

Jayme – what did she say?

Frustrating. This is how I would describe my experience with Fortress Learning.

Frustrating because I would submit evidence as part of the Diploma of VET and they would ask for just a little bit more to ensure all requirements were covered or they would ask for better quality evidence.

Frustrating but necessary.

Sienna – what did she say?

The trainers and the staff working at the academy are very nice, and most of time they reply within 3 days or so.

What I found very disappointing is:

  1. Every time I had to submit an assessment, the observer had to sign and write some feedback about me… 18 times is way too much, it was very uncomfortable..
  2. Some assessments are too long to complete, and quite difficult … But I have to say that every time I had a problem, they called me to try to help me…

… Overall, my experience was good, however, I wouldn’t repeat with them but now that I finished I´m happy with the result. Read more…

Wendy – what did she say?

When it came to the training bit, I knew I had years of experience and didn’t find it difficult at all. But when it came to the assessments piece – I was a wreck . Luckily I reached out to my trainer Emma, who guided me and supported me in the right manner. She could see I was getting stressed and motivated me to help calm my nerves. It’s a very practical training session. The staff is always ready to help you. It requires focus and time. Overall I had a wonderful experience with Fortress. I’ve been recommending it to all my trainer friends in Dubai.

Glenn – what did he say?

I completed by Cert IV TAE in 7 weeks with Fortress and couldn’t have done it without the amazing support of Emma. When I had questions she was always there to help out and provide guidance. She marked by assignments very quickly and provided great feedback to me also. The personal touch that Fortress provided is comforting for a remote learner. I researched a lot of other providers who didn’t rate well but Fortress rated very well i’m happy to provide another glowing reference. Thanks team for all your support!

Bernhard – what did he say?

Learning as an adult is not easy, especially if you have a full-time job and a young family. With Fortress Learning it never felt too pressured because you are free to learn whenever you got the time and the mind for it. The feedback is motivating and keeps you going. Overall a great experience.

Individualised RPL process for the Cert IV TAE and Dip VET


walking up stairs

Every now and then, a graduating student writes a Review that we believe really captures what we try to do, in this case about RPL for the Cert IV TAE and Dip VET. Instead of them ending up hidden among the others, we will share them with you, and try to explain why we think they are so appropriate.

What did they say?

Owen: Provided one of the most suitable RPL programs I have seen. It addressed broader learning and skills through detailed authentification without being a tick and flick.  Where further training was required all resources provided a high level of information.

Cecile: I felt as though throughout my RPL the process was smooth and easy. Bryan was very patient with me and my OCD. Thank you for getting all my results back to me so quickly as well, it was great to get that feedback almost immediately.

Jason: As a VET professional, I am always concerned with integrity, as there are many RTOs and Assessors out there that give us all a bad name through the use of “tick and flick”. Fortress Learning is not like that at all, they assess and grant competency the right way every time, giving every learner the opportunity to show their underpinning knowledge in all forms of assessment.

Every now and then, a graduating student writes a Review that we believe really captures what we try to do; this time, it is about the Dual Dip VET – Dip TDD program.  Instead of them ending up hidden among the others, we will share them with you, and try to explain why we think they are so appropriate.

Coleen Rivas – what did she say?

Having worked in the VET sector for many years, these guys gave me a great demonstration of how things should be done. The LMS is easy to use, feedback and results are provided within 24 hours and support is available whenever required. Benchmark RTO. For those doing TAE qualifications, the learning includes a fantastic example of how an RTO should operate. 5 Star Rating well deserved.

Geraldine – what did she say?

Fortress Learning has been so supportive throughout all my studies with them. I have now done two courses and have never had cause to worry about anything. The regular contact to make sure I’m ok and to see if I need any assistance with anything also work as a motivational tool to keep me going. They will help your much or as little as you want. I can totally recommend and would not hesitate to do any further studies with them.

From day 1 when I initially enquired about Fortress Learning’s Business Diplomas the response was professional and very informative. Once I commenced the RPL and learning process, the standard of service and support was second to none!
I would happily recommend Fortress Learning to anybody who wants a positive learning experience with excellent support.
