Great customer service from Veronica. Completing the AAT Level 2 & Level 3 Advanced Diploma and Veronica was very helpful with guiding me through the whole registration process.
I have just enrolled for an AAT course and my experience so far has been really great. When I called to enquire I spoke with Luke, he was very helpful, friendly and professional, helped me set up my account, make the payment and answered my many questions perfectly. The account was activated the next morning and my books arrived in just 2 days. The online platform is well organised and detailed. I highly recommend e-Careers.
Excellent customer service and support from the start. Thanks to all involved with the process at e-Careers, especially Marshall and Martin for making this happen.
The staff at e-Careers were very helpful when I contacted them recently about commencing study for AAT Level 3. Throughout the past year whilst I have studied AAT Level 2, e-Careers has been supportive whenever I contact them, exceeding my expectations. I am very satisfied.
