“I absolutely loved doing the assignments! As sad as it may sound, I loved having each assignment where only your imagination is the limit and there were no creative restrictions. Knowing that I could be creative allowed me to push myself more in the assignments to really produce something that was original.” ~Coral Deverick

If you have never studied online before you are in for an interactive and engaging experience. The Academy teaches online courses via what we call, the Virtual Campus. Unlike the traditional classroom model we deliver our courses to suit different learning styles using a variety of media.

If you are unsure if online learning is for you why not sign up for our ‘no obligation’ free trial to discover how we teach budding wedding and event professionals like yourself.

Delivering our course material online means we are constantly able to keep our content up to date and industry relevant. We update our courses throughout the year as new trends and ideas develop and the latest professional tools and apps are released. Each year you can expect to hear from us about the colours of the season as predicted by Pantone, the leading authority on colour, as well as the top wedding and event trends as predicted by industry professionals and showcased in our annual International Wedding Trend Report.

Our students benefit from our affiliation with top industry professionals worldwide via our Academy Advisory Board. These experts advise and consult on our course content, and share their knowledge and experience with our community through Q&A sessions, Facebook Live video, and by offering work experience opportunities. We also work with a curated selection of fantastic industry partners including specialist industry software providers who offer our students free trials, training and discounts off annual subscriptions.

Our courses prepare you for a career in weddings and events no matter what your end goal. When you graduate with the Academy you will be ready to take on wedding and event industry employment with confidence and a comprehensive skill set. If launching a business is your career dream then we have a selection of courses that include the additional training required to be a savvy business owner.
