Graduate Experiences

When I first enrolled with the Australian and New Zealand academy I didn’t know what to expect or if I could even accomplish what I set out to achieve. The help from my courses and tutor gave me clear understanding and a sense of direction about where I wanted to go and what I wanted to do. Finishing my Diploma, I am now more than ready to dive into this amazing industry.

Should I do this course and the Certificate in Wedding Styling Course?
