Testimonial

“I sincerely want to thank Brooke, Henry and the team at Asset College for providing me with a friendly, seamless pathway to my Graduate Diploma. I, like many senior managers in today’s workforce, are of an era where work experience was the key, rather than qualifications. In today’s world, this can be a disadvantage.

I am so glad I decided to do something about turning my years of experience into that all important qualification through Asset College’s RPL process. I was determined to find an institute which did not have a reputation of ‘tick and flick’ for money. Asset College was the right choice. I  loved the fact that I had to do some research and learn, as well as provide examples. My qualification feels real and well earned.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! 5 stars!”
