"I always wanted to study management. This word always fascinated me very much. I tried to study by myself, searched many online journals and study materials but always got confused with so many words and papers. Could not get hang of it and was not sure where to start from. Then I found "Cornerstone Education" distance learning course. I just joined it but thought it will be again one of those correspondence courses where loads of books will be referred and then one will get confused and finally end up giving up and accept the loss of money. But Cornerstone Education course material is fabulous. It is well written and subjects are beautifully explained. I am sure anyone who wants to learn will have no problems understanding it. As papers went by I became more and more eager to learn and start another one. Learning has not only helped in enhancing professional aspect but also it has a great impact of my personal understandings of problem solving, goal settings, financial management and effective communication. I am a changed person now!!! Thank you Cornerstone Education for offering such a wealth of knowledge in such a simplified way."

"When offered the opportunity to study, after starting a great senior Administration role with a new company, I jumped at the chance. Even though I had held some great positions over the years I was excited to gain some formal qualifications and 'feed the mind' with study and some challenging assignments. That is exactly what I found when I studied in 2009 with Cornerstone Education for the NZIM Certificate in Management. The assignments covered an array of topics and challenged me to delve into subjects I may not have given much thought to before. I have learned a lot over this year and it has prompted me to take on even more training in Accounting to further my skills. Thank you Cornerstone Education for offering such a great course and a big, fat thank you to Lorayne whose support was just fantastic throughout my studies. You deserve a pay rise"

"This was an opportunity for me to do a full Management course from the ease of sitting at home. Having studied management in a few other courses gave me an idea of what management is all about, but I was lacking the insight of it. Being a Production Manager I really needed something that could teach me how to deal with the problems of people management and this course is spot on. I can't recall a single occasion where Lorayne got irritated with my questions. She was always there to help. Thanks for everything."

"This course was my birthday present from my lovely husband. I hassled him to pay the course for me as a present! After a year of finishing my Diploma in Early Childhood Education, I thought I was again ready to start a new course. I thought going into the management level would be a new beginning in my career. Well, I thought I could complete the course in six months but I struggled to meet the deadlines because of my new job. The support and the patience given to me by Lorayne was exceptional and my study buddy Fridolin was wonderful. For a full time worker, this programme suited me well and I am planning to enroll my daughter as her birthday present!"

"My reasons for taking this course were to provide me with a tertiary level qualification I could use as a bridge into full-time study next year. My daughter had moved away to study so I needed to fill that gap after many years devoted to tutoring her in her homeschooling. Cornerstone Education provided that opportunity without the fees generally associated. I could work at my own pace and discovered that my brain still worked and I could produce quality assignments. With the ongoing support of Lorayne I was able to get past the occasional challenge which is inevitable when studying on your own. She responded quickly to emails, almost instantly, so progress was not interrupted. If you're thinking about getting into study just do it there'll never be a better time and who knows where it will take you."

"I saw the Cornerstone Education Certificate in Management course advertised in our local newspaper and thought, "Wow, what a bargain! Only $180 for a Certificate in Management course. What have I got to lose?" Well, I lost no time at all in registering for the course, and gained heaps in learning new management techniques, behavioral skills, and so much more. I found the level of support and positive feedback from Lorayne and her team to be quite exceptional. The team actually takes a personal interest in helping and guiding their students through the course. As a fairly recent immigrant to New Zealand, I have never experienced that level of commitment before. This is a course that I highly recommend. Go for it."
