The instructor really added to the forum discussions on each topic and responded on a personal basis. She added many relevant and thought-provoking statements, making the learning experience much richer. She was attentive and encouraging.
I found this course to be excellent. Informative with so much applicable information to be used immediately in your daily practice. Very thought-provoking and makes you reflect on your own and your organization's ethics and principles.
Its a great reminder of what I’m here for and to truly set boundaries and respect for self and client.
There’s so much you can learn and take from this course and others feedback.
Your feedback is much appreciated. A related course I recently completed didn’t provide feedback on assignments other than whether or not we had passed, so now I'm doubly aware of how great the Life Strategies courses are!

It is not possible for a working professional to
enroll for a regular course. An online course likes this gave me so much
flexibility and time to learn. I learned at my own pace and had possibilities
to manage other stuff. It is definitely worth learning on an online
As a grandfathered Certified Career Development Professional, I found taking the program expanded my horizons and deepened my understanding while respecting and valuing my experience. I balked at having to do the project in order to get certification. However, after having completed a practical project that enhances my work, I can say it was well worth the time and energy. I fully intend on continuing taking courses as life-long learning is a part of me, and Life Strategies gives me programming that fits into my lifestyle.

Overall, I think it has great material especially if you are new to this position or even this field.
I very much enjoyed the course...there was much to take away for those working in business. Marking was prompt and the feedback was excellent. There are lots of take-aways in terms of handouts and the ability to reconnect or stay connected via the Life Strategies Learn Online Reconnect. Excellent resources, excellent timeframe for those working full-time and excellent tutor support. Thanks for the opportunity to learn something that I will use at work on a regular basis. I have already drafted 2 proposals…

I took up the Career Development Foundations, Emerging Theories, and Model course as part of a series of mandatory requirements. What started as part of a formality, ended up by being a very instructive and fun activity. The course was well-organised, the activities were very interesting, and the support provided by the instructor (Herky) and the student coordinator (Casie) was excellent. Great experience!

I have enjoyed this course tremendously and have learned above and beyond what I thought I would learn. This course has not only upgraded my skills and given me a certification in psychometric assessments but has opened a whole new field of occupation options for me to look into. This course has met my goals and more. Thank you.

I am now in my third class at Life Strategies and although there are sometimes challenges because I am not currently a career practitioner, I see many similarities to my experiences managing people. It is my first online class experience and I am very impressed with it. Having been responsible for online user experience in my past, I have found the navigation very user friendly and have engaged more in it than I thought I might.

Very well done and helpful! Our online instructor, Roberta Neault was very engaged to the group discussion.
I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed my two on line courses, theories, and ethics. I deal with so much everyday, it gave me some practical information to refer to. I also enjoyed reading all the blogs from the courses, and the instructors gave helpful questions and advice
