The course module, painstakingly, has been designed for learners. It achieves its purpose very well. The way certain important topics are repeated helps the learners remember the key concepts. Thanks for very good material & system of imparting the topic. Will look forward to take up more courses in ALISON. Also take this opportunity to wish ALISON great days ahead. More practical illustrations from the industries across the world would have added more value to the course content. Thanks ALISON team.

Diploma in Project Management is a very credible study program being offered and I was able to use especially the skills i gained in "the planning phase" during a recent job interview and it was perfect! I just love this free online course because it has widened my understanding in project management capabilities. I want to graduate soon and then enroll for another course. Thank you for the opportunity Alison team!

Claudette Colvin - Learner - United States of America

I want to thank Alison for free online courses in many different areas. I needed to provide certificates for two classes to satisfy provisional conditions of the University of North Carolina at Pembroke Graduate Studies program. I was able to take these classes free online through Alison. Because of these classes, I have been given full acceptance to the Graduate Studies program. Thank you for being there and for the free online classes. 

Osman Mohamud Salad - Learner - Somalia

It is a very interesting course. I have gained more from the course. It is short and very good indeed. The teaching system was very comprehensive and interesting which can be understood by anyone.

Shelly Schibley - Learner - United States of America

The course was well done in my opinion. I am new at learning how to create a business online and needed to get the idea of what I will need to be doing. This course actually taught me more than I thought I would learn. I liked how you got to see how things were done instead of just being told. That alone helps more than a lot would think. Thank you for providing a course that was easy to understand and learn.

Bethan Wanyonyi - Learner - Kenya

This is what I have been looking for and I am optimistic that the knowledge I am going to get is going to help me not only to get employment but also for self employment. Thanks Alison!!!!!

Kayla-jan Tukere - Learner - New Zealand

Learning basic french for everyday life is something I have been wanting to do, I think it will help when I move to France in a few years and help me talk to other french people in the future.

Ann Mahoney - Learner - United States of America

Excellent food for thought and principles that I will apply in my daily life. I am 54 years old and am starting all over! I love the "10 pages to read versus 300" approach. It does alleviate the stress of intimidation. Thank you for this course.

Helene Olukoju - Learner - Ghana - Accra

The course has been very insightful and interesting. It is a good spring board and stepping stone for further studies in the area of Business and Law Studies.It has taught me basic accounting principles and helped me to understand legal issues better. It is a course any individual and entrepreneur should study since the world economy and society is basically business oriented and business operators need to understand what is expected to be done in terms of business, finance and the law. Individuals too will have a better understanding of what pertains and goes on in the court of law and have a fair understanding of what is going on around them in the legal system. I recommend this course to any one studying with Alison. Well done ALISON Team.

Mary Bermingham - Learner - Ireland

Dear Alison Training Team, I think this Course is great. Hope to be able to put into practise - I can see the areas where I am going wrong at work, being reactive and feeling overwhelmed and demotivated with an endless To Do List. There is great advice here. It is the type of course that one could go back to again and again to refresh the points in one's mind. Much appreciated. Mary, Dublin.

Rosalinda Cavazos - Learner - Mexico

Thanks a lot for this excellent instructional program, "Understanding Dyslexia". I am an elementary teacher, I want to congratulate you because these kind of courses help us teachers a lot. They enable us to improve our knowledge from our workplace or from our house. I learned a lot from this course and I would recommend it to all my fellow teachers. In my opinion this course is going to help me with my students with any kind of learning disability or learning disorders not only with the ones that has a condition like dyslexia. Some of my students struggle in their Reading and Writing so I think that this course provided me with more guidance to make the best educational decisions for them. 
 Teaching students with dyslexia requires to make differentiations and accommodations that will help them with their ability to read. We as educators have to use all the available tools for help them. There is a lot of ignorance surrounding dyslexia and learning disabilities that is why I appreciate this course a lot. This kind of courses help to understand people that suffer this condition. Thanks again for all the recommendations and variety of methods that will help me and my students to grow and better develop their own abilities.

Kieran McCarthy, Cork, Ireland

 I have this big dream, I don't want to work under someone when I'm 26-27, I want my own business, apartment and my families mortgage paid for. When I was in college my parents had to take a loan out as we didn't get a grant, and in the end I couldn't finish as we didn't have the money and I paid my parents back!

I've a huge interest in computers in programming and development and that's the career I want to catch and drive into a business in both android and java but I always get the same remarks about learning and getting the career, "You need a college degree.", "You need to have huge experience." So I decided to teach myself and prove people wrong! I bought books, studied till morning and completed courses through ALISON. And to be honest I became addicted to learning as much as I could! I enjoyed it!!! I ended up landing an internship with a company in cork out of other fully trained developers which I pushed to get to learn more and get that experience!

With sites like ALISON, people will have a chance to soak up so much knowledge, get a spark of enthusiasm to start something, build something and make a better life for them and others. I know that might sound cliche and dramatic but if you really want something in life and you had this kind of opportunity, I think with free learning and a drive or dream, possibilities would be endless! I think ALISON's that gem that people need to know about!

Blathin Wall, Student, Ireland

I am a sixteen year old student in Sligo and signed up to ALISON to further my education as I found the school curriculum lacking. Because of ALISON, I have the opportunity to learn many new subjects including Chinese, Arabic, Programming and Anatomy which are not offered in my school or surrounding area. I would never have had the chance to do these subjects and most certainly not for free!  It also helps me in school as I can do Geography, German, Biology, Chemistry and Project Maths which I am doing for the Leaving Certificate. I feel ALISON is helping me expand my horizon as it is filling out my Curriculum Vitae and making me more employable for when I join the workplace

Maura Stimpson

My husband died 7 years ago, and my life changed overnight.  I had no bank account, had never used a bank machine and never filled in any type of forms; in fact the only things I would write would be my name on a greeting card. I decided I would stand a better chance of getting work if I was computer literate.  Having enrolled in a Basic Computer Course I got hooked on Microsoft Office and wanted to keep learning. Then I discovered ALISON which gave me the courage, confidence and the hunger to continue learning. I just wanted more and more knowledge and there was no stopping me; so far I have done 3 online courses with ALISON.

It is all down to ALISON that I found other courses and sat and passed all exams among them to list but a few, I am a qualified Trainer, a Microsoft Office Specialist in both Word and PowerPoint and am studying on line for the Microsoft Office Expert Exam.

So with the help of ALISON, I discovered  that on a computer I can do anything.  I think there are a lot of adults and young people who are afraid to learn for fear of appearing stupid.  That is why the courses on ALISON are so good they give everyone a chance to learn and gain confidence to change things for their self.

Maurice Handford - Learner - United Kingdom

I am a dyslexic, think that's how you spell it. Anyways I normally find when reading my eyes can get lost on a page and jump around trying to find the word I last read. I find coloured over lays or glasses help this from happening. However having the course written as you have with bold and normal font throughout the course information I found it much easier to study. I am guessing this has been done on purpose and not as a random accident. So I thought it was worth mentioning. Other than this I have learnt alot of useful information. some of which I have already required from private investigation to my own difficulties. With education and the written word. Although the one thing that no one seems to state it that the individual will not get anywhere if he/she doesn't first ackonwledge that they have a problem and we are very good at hiding within the school system due to fear of the posible come backs from the so called normal people/kids dependant on your age group. Sociality as a whole is not kind to difference. Anyways thank you for the opertunity to learn and for the free education. I have enjoyed it and will continue. I'm alot slower at this kind of stuff than my sister, it has taken awhile to get through the content and i have had to you a dictionary at times but its all good fun and well worth it.

Diploma in Social Work Studies Course: is of great importance, in the community. A Social Worker helps to change and improve lives of the vulnerable groups, old aged people and young people, who will be living under stress, abuse, and facing different kind of challenges which will not be easy to overcome. All in all, Social Workers, are considered as problem relievers, in fact most people have different social challenges they meet in life which need a Social Worker to attend to. This Course teaches and trains a person how to socialize in the community, and how to assist people facing challenges. Before being trained by Alison, I did not have a know-how on dealing with matters arising in the community, I thank Alison College for opening my mind, now I can operate in my community, in socializing, solving, reporting and making decisions on different challenges faced by clients. I now know the way forward in handling issues and problems of people in the community. Through Diploma in Social Work Studies Course, I am empowered person.

After my own experiences with ALISON, I really believe that these courses are can develop talent and help anyone who wants to learn

First I want to thank all employees at ALISON for providing a great opportunity for free education.  I am working in the HR field and this requires a lot of reading and researching to keep my knowledge up-to-date.  I wanted to study courses related to my field to pursue a promotion and to develop key skills.  I began to study ALISON last year and found it easy to fit my studies around my work. I am now certified in the "Fundamentals of Operations Management" and am currently taking the ‘Diploma in Human Resources’.   After my own experiences with ALISON, I really believe that these courses are can develop talent and help anyone who wants to learn.

ALISON helped me to secure a promotion

I could never get a promotion with my company without a diploma. I decided to complete ALISON’s free ‘Diploma in Workplace Health and Safety’ to help advance my career. The company that I work for made my dream come true by promoting me and giving me an opportunity to study further after I completed my studies with ALISON. Thanks to the ALISON team who helped me to achieve my goals and make me who I am today. Martin Chishimba, UK

Yours Mr Keith Gray.
