I just recently graduated and received my diploma in Computerized Business Accounting. I would like to tell you that my experience with the Centre for Distance Education has been great! The instructors were easy to contact and provided me excellent assistance when I needed it. Upon finishing my program, I was able to get another job with the company I work for, but this time I am working in the accounting department! Thank you for your help and support.
Jill Comeau, Business Accounting
We checked your school out with the NB and NS departments of education and the Better Business Bureau. Your school passed with flying colours. The other school I was considering didn’t.
Edwin Long, Business Accounting
My experience with The Centre for Distance Education has been GREAT! The Instructors and staff went out of their way to guide me through my course when I needed help. I have completed and received my Diploma in Computerized Business Accounting and, before I started this course, I did research on my schools and this school was highly recommended.
Kathy Haegeman, Business Accounting
I wanted to further my education and when I found this school they were so helpful in helping me get everything that I needed to start. I scheduled my studying time when my kids were in bed and in school and when I wasn't working. What I loved best about CD-ED was the teachers and how helpful they were with me….they would help me even if I called more than once in a day.
Tina Spragg, Business Accounting
The education is awesome, the people that help me are usually awesome. It’s been a good experience overall!
Kristin Speight, Business Accounting
I am really enjoying my course and even though it’s hard at times, I know I will have something that I worked hard for at the end of my course.
April MacDonald, Business Accounting
Overall, the staff is most helpful and very easy to get along with. They are loved for all their hard work.
Jean Gaudet, Business Accounting
I started looking at online accounting courses and I found CD-ED. My experience with the course was great. I was reassured along the way and the teachers were very helpful. I enjoyed the flexibility it gave me which was a huge bonus because of my jobs. I am very pleased with the school and course and my overall experience! Thank you for giving me this experience!
Jillian Bruce, Business Accounting Graduate
My experience was fantastic! The structure was very good, my teacher Noel was readily available to answer any questions or just talk about everything that was going on at that moment.
Lori Sands, Business Accounting Graduate
Thank you for everything. You helped a lot. Sometimes I felt like giving up and it seemed like you had a sixth sense and I had an email waiting when I woke up.
Elizabeth Cartwright, Business Accounting Student
I have taken other post-secondary courses before and I by far prefer this way of taking a course, there are no rigid time constraints to adhere to, and again you can do the course at your own pace to a degree. The instructor support was amazing! I have learned a lot that helps in my day to day life, and there were aspects of this course I was not expecting that I was happy to learn.
Colin Shimwell, Business Accounting Student
I received the Business Accounting Diploma in June of this year (President’s List). Do not let anyone tell you that distance education is not as good as other colleges, because that is not the truth! Most colleges are now offering distance learning as well. Also I feel so great that CD-ED does not leave you as soon as you graduate. I can phone anytime and feel that I have that support!
Renee Vermette, Business Accounting Graduate
Thank you for always being so encouraging and making sure I am on the right path!
Nancy Snyder, Business Accounting Student
Thank you so much for all your patience, encouragement to continue on, and not giving up on me when I gave up on myself.
Roberta Scott, Business Accounting Student
CD-ED saved me from having to sit in a class room, or taking night courses. I have found the course and the material easier to handle then when I was in a class room setting. I love Centre for Distance Education, and I have a feeling that you may have me as a student for yet another year after I finish the Business Accounting course.
Sarah Ryan, Business Accounting Student
Having recently completed your course in PC Maintenance & Repair, I want to take this time to say thank you to you and the staff in putting together a course that is very thorough and highly motivational. I have come away with a strong foundation on which to build a career. One of the things that was most impressive was the interest the instructor had in my progress and his willingness to go out of his way to be helpful. Thank you.
Leo Le Blanc, PC Maintenance & Repair
Let me start off by saying thank you very much [to my instructor Keith]. It has been a pleasure being your student for the past 52 weeks in the PC Maintenance and Repair course. I enjoyed every day of this course and found you to be an exceptional instructor. You assisted me through out the duration of my course with the expertise I expect from an instructor. Keep up the great work Keith, and I wish you all the best in the future, whether it be at your present position or any other area you move on to.
Larry Weagle, PC Maintenance & Repair
I enjoyed taking my course. Everyone is very friendly when I call and ask questions. Problems are handled efficiently and fast. Thank you!
Pamela Mitchell, PC Maintenance & Repair
Thank you to all the staff that have worked with me over the year. What drew me into the PC Repair program is that you can work at your own pace without the hassle of the classroom setting, and the teachers and staff work with you if you need help. The part of the course that I found that most challenging was working with the technical writing – you’re pretty much learning a new language. [But] everything was very easy-going and worked with my everyday life.
Jesse James, PC Repair Graduate
Thank you so much to all of you at CD-ED. I mean it, I have been walked all over by the system, but the staff at CD-ED has made me feel great and have respected me for Henry a student. There was school here I could enroll where I live, but treated me with no respect - more stereotype than anything. I wanted to educate myself so bad and I'm glad the staff at CD-ED was great and treated me with respect. You rock staff, you made someone that is unique or different feel special; you have helped me through depression and discrimination. Thank you for helping me take this hate away and be myself again. The best part of the course was learning to think for yourself, not just think!!
Henry Ochoa, PC Repair Graduate
The support was awesome and any questions I had were answered right away and they were always encouraging. I actually enjoyed the section concentrating on typography. I have developed a strong interest in typography because of that section. I am really happy with my experience in the graphic design program. I felt it gave me a good base of fundamentals to build upon.
David McKoy, Graphic Design
From the minute I got my first shipment of books and got started, I realized that this was no different than attending school in a regular class, aside from the fact that my classroom was at home.
Carey Beers, Graphic Design
As I continue on with this course and learn more and more about HTML and CSS, I am starting to feel more confident in my abilities to code very basic web pages. I’m finding the books easy to grasp and the instructions are very clear, which is especially helpful when reading three text books at once! Can’t wait for more!
Ellen Woodbury, Web Design Student & Graphic Design Graduate
Taking a program like this through CDED is an excellent option for someone who is working full time as it allows you to complete your education while giving you the flexibility necessary to balance work, family and other commitments. The instructors go above and beyond to help out and are very encouraging as well as patient in responding to your questions and concerns.
Kevin Leusink, Graphic Design Student
I liked that I could work and go to school at the same time. I even got a job as a graphic designer 4 months before I graduated. It was a lot of work and I had to make sacrifices but it was worth it in the end. I really enjoyed the whole experience here at CD-ED and am planning on returning possibly in the fall to continue my education. I thought the program covered a lot of different aspects and gave me a good basic foundation on which to start building. Thanks CD-ED!
Michelle Johnson, Graphic Design Graduate
My expectations for this course were to learn the basics and get a general idea on how to use each program. What I got was so much more. I feel totally prepared to search for and acquire employment as a Graphic Designer. The teachers were very helpful and patient; they guided me through with support and encouragement. Not once did my questions go unanswered. The staff at CD-ED is wonderful, helpful, encouraging, and pleasant. I can’t say enough about their supportive enthusiasm. They want you to succeed and they will help you achieve your goal!
Fay Bonthoux, Graphic Design Student
Even once I had received my diploma, the staff at CD-ED were checking in on me and giving me any advice I needed to get a job. They wanted to do everything they could to make sure I was all set up to get the kind of work I was looking for. I started up my own Photography and Graphic Design business. I am a sole proprietor and every day I get to do something I love!
Christina Ramsey, Graphic Design Graduate
With my education I have successfully landed a full time graphic design job, which I got really fast. I am also surprised every day about the skill and knowledge I am using at work as at the time when I was learning it, I did not think it was super important. Though the Centre is on the other side of the country, I really felt like I was part of a community as they made me feel like an individual and not just a stranger through the screen. The school has taught me everything I need for success in my field.
Jenna Folstrom, Graphic Design Graduate
I expected distance education to be challenging. I thought it would be difficult not being able to interact face-to-face with the instructors… but it never became an issue. I didn’t expect the program to be as fun as it was!! I really enjoyed the program and the instructors were so helpful and supportive. The learning path made sense with regard to the organization of the modules. I believe that everything I learned will help me succeed in my career as a Graphic Designer.
Danielle Gour, Graphic Design Student
The online classroom works very well, and I haven’t had any problems with the lesson submissions. I really commend the designers of this online classroom for a very good, user friendly design. I have done other online courses where the logging in and out of various portals and sites was a nightmare and consumed more time than doing the course. There is a human touch here at CD-ED that is not present at other distance education providers.
Rosemary Hayes, Graphic Design Student
Health Information Management
CD-ED is genuinely interested in the academic and future career success of their students, it is a "school with a heart". I have no hesitation to recommend it to any prospective student. It is the best door to the Health Information Management professional career in Canada.
Abunasr Zhanybekov, HIM Graduate
Taking the Health Information Management (HIM) program at CD-ED is one of the best life-changing decisions I have ever made. The program is taught by talented and committed experts in their fields who put in as many hours as the students to ensure we emerge as successfully trained and certified HIM leaders. I believe in and give credit to the instructors who I cannot stress more are truly experts in their fields. It makes a significant difference because they are able to provide students with the curriculum, skill sets and knowledge which they know are necessary in the HIM field.
Santrina Cerquozzi, HIM Year-2 Student
Legal Office Administration
Speaking as a mother of 7, if I could do this so can you. Education is very important in life and I hope that everyone sticks to it even if the going gets tough. I strongly believe that everyone should have an opportunity to further their education and CD-ED provides that for people with kids.
Mary Lou Gould, Legal Office Administration
I just wanted to say thanks for all the help you have given me so far. It seems to be off to a great start and my experience so far has been great with all the staff that I have talked to. It makes it a lot more comfortable knowing that I have lots of support.
Melanie Upshaw, Legal Office Administration
CD-ED was such an excellent fit to my lifestyle. I didn’t want to have to stop work to take a full time course. I wanted to keep on earning and gaining experience while I was learning. From the beginning, the teaching and support staff at CD-ED were helpful and knowledgeable. I had help to find the course that best suited me and what I wanted to get from my school experience, I was given help to figure out financing, and it was all done without the process being rushed. If you, like me, can’t see yourself back in a classroom setting and would rather do things on your own time in your own way, then this will be the perfect choice for you!
Kristin Cote, LOA Student
I’m the first in my family to have graduated with a college degree and I was so proud of myself. If you’re ready to meet a group of people that will be there for your educational journey 110% of the way, then I encourage you to apply.
Justin Wade, LOA Graduate
I am a stay at home mom who did not have the time to go to school outside of the home with 3 kids. I didn’t go to any sort of second carrier education until enrolling at CD-ED and taking the Legal Office Administration program and this was the best decision I made to boost my confidence and made me fall in love with law. It has given me the confidence to go back to school and take a paralegal course and then qualifying to take the P1 exam. Thank you CD-ED.
Danielle Lamoureux, LOA Graduate
I was told by a friend about CD-ED. I could study and complete assignments at my own pace which was exactly what I needed with a toddler and another child on the way. I needed to work and this school provided me with the chance to do everything. It was very hard at times, but the staff and my instructor were very understanding with my personal life and I got through and graduated. I believe if I can do it anyone can.
Brandy McGuire, LOA Graduate
In my two-year academic journey in CD-ED, I enjoyed every second of it –from the readings, assignments, and the weekly interactions with schoolmates and teachers. Above all, I will always treasure the guidance, assistance, understanding, and steady but caring hand of my instructor. CD-ED not only helped me realize the goodness of education but also the goodness of other people and the power of inspiring others.
Cyl Bryan Bagadiong, LOA Graduate
Medical Office Administration
I graduated from Medical Office Administration. I took only the medical transcription portion. I am a nurse, but have an autistic son, so studying and working from home has been wonderful. I got a job with MedQuist Canada after graduating and I am loving it there.
Rhonda Macneil-levy, Medical Office Administration
I really enjoyed this course and have recently received a couple of calls regarding interviews. I have enjoyed all my instructors and their support is very much appreciated. I will definitely refer my friends to this school.
Kim Neil, Medical Office Administration
I was thinking of going to the local college, but I didn’t want to stop working. And I always had hard time concentrating in class, when there’s a lot of people around, lot of noises.¦ One day I was browsing on the Internet, I ended up on the CD-ED website, ordered the info package, and here I am now, graduated! I just LOVED my experience with CD-ED, the staff is totally awesome, nice, the MOA course is very interesting and I honestly think that it was not long enough (in a good way), it went by so fast and I had fun.
Jolaine Haiche, Medical Office Administration
I felt challenged, encouraged, supported, informed and motivated to not only finish, but do the very best I could. I made the goal at the outset that I wanted to be on that President’s List and I hope, with my finishing marks this week, that I have made my goal and earned that reward. Thank you so much, Kim and Joanne, for your continual support and encouragement. I am so sad to be finished yet at the same time, relieved and proud that I have made it through.
Melissa Darling, MOA Graduate
Deciding to take a course through CD-ED was a tough decision but I am glad I did. The instructors were very nice and were always around to help when I had questions and were very detailed. I loved the Medical Office Administration course; I learned so many new things and found that I really enjoyed transcription. The course itself had a rough start, but I managed to get through it (with a newborn I might add) and I graduated with honors! I am very excited to take these new skills that I have learned and bring them with me into the future, into a well-deserved career in the medical field.
Pamela Giesbrecht, MOA Graduate
I really enjoyed my time at CD-ED. All the teachers were absolutely wonderful - they were eager to help, whilst also being there for help. Sometimes in a bigger class the teacher is overwhelmed by the amount of students and aren’t able to sit with them one on one, but if the teachers at CD-ED weren’t available at first call you could be certain they would be back to you within the day, I personally heard within hours. The same could be said about email and getting back your grades. The material was challenging enough to keep you on your toes and not make you bored, but not so much that you would lose motivation. Being a stay at home mom with still a lot of other things on my plate, the load wasn’t overwhelming. You could also go to your teachers for motivation, and to keep your schedule on track. I would absolutely recommend CD-ED to anyone. It was an amazing time.
Brittany Reese, MOA Graduate
CD-ED has completely changed my outlook on distance education. The instructors are very helpful and supportive - they want you to do well. The course materials were extremely focused and each module gives you the tools and skills you need to succeed in the work place. I would definitely recommend CD-ED to anyone who is ready to change their life!
Colette Bishop-Green, MOA Graduate
I really enjoyed this long distance learning and I learned a lot. I felt more comfortable in the comfort of my own home since I was older than normal students. I would really recommend this college to my friends and family. Once again I thank you all for the fantastic service you gave to me.
Carol Lapierre, MOA Graduate
CD-ED helped me in my career now because I actually wasn’t even finished the course when the doctor that I worked for hired me. They saw that I had had a distance course and they thought that as I was disciplined enough to take an online course and stick it through they knew I would have the ethic that they were looking for to work for them.
Jennifer Ferguson, MOA Graduate
I decided to take a home-study college program through CD-ED because I was single parent trying to work to support my daughter so doing a home study college program would allow me to work and do my schooling at the same time and also allow me time for my daughter. I feel that my program had the most up to date materialsâ€¦ I have a friend who took the same course through George Brown College and she told me what took her 2-3 years to learn I was able to learn in one year.
Brandy Gamberg, General Office Administration
I would like to say that in the time I spent at CD-ED, I learned highly valuable information to fast forward my career. Immediately upon graduation I received an at-home position as an administrative assistant. I could not have achieved this without the help of CD-ED.
Casey McPherson, Business Applications [now General Office Admin]
I just wanted to thank each and every one of you for making my time at distance education so enjoyable. I will certainly recommend you any chance I get. Everyone was so helpful and understand and always there for me. Thank you.
Viola Gullickson, Office Administration
The best thing that I could have done is to take this course.
Lorrie Hetherington, Office Administration
I feel the course is overall excellent and have had no problems and have achieved excellent marks so far.
Laura Biggins, Office Administration
When I checked your program, everyone said good things about it. And then I enrolled in the Computerized Business Applications Diploma Program, and I am loving it.
Julie Ann Chappell, Office Administration
The course offered is great. It is really easy to follow and even if someone has very little prior computer experience, they can get the hang of things real fast. I recommend CD-ED to everyone I know.
Bruce Lowe, Office Administration
I have been speaking / conversing with Karolyn Churney [Admissions Officer] off and on for the past 2 months in regards to my educational requirements… Ms. Churney has proven to me that she will not only go out of her way to accommodate me, but also run that extra mile to ensure that my student loan and other educational materials relating to your courses are easy and straight forward.
Scott Saunders, Office Administration
I appreciate your fine attitude and interest shown to me, Hal. This is the kind of communication that continues to make CD-ED #1.
Florence Brothers, Office Administration
The staff are amazing and are right there for any problems you may have and have an answer right away for you. Gail McLean and Keith MacIntyre have been super amazing through my whole course. I would definitely tell everyone I know if they are thinking about further educating themselves to go with the Centre for Distance Education!
Carol Christian, Office Administration
The minute I found out I was accepted, I was blown away with happiness. I was nervous and scared at first but after a few minutes of talking to Sandy, she made me feel so comfortable and relaxed. I always called her my life line. I give a tonne of credit to all the staff at CD-ED for getting me through it and for giving my life the fulfilment it needed. Thank you so much CD-ED for the push I needed. I appreciate it so much.
Erika Aebly, GOA Graduate
I would strongly recommend CD-ED to any aspiring students looking to take the plunge in to starting their career from the comfort of their homes! The instructors and all the other staff are extremely helpful and supportive, so although you’re working on your own, it never feels like you are alone! Completing my education by distance was extremely beneficial because I could continue to work almost full time, AND I didn’t have to leave my friends and family to go to school. Overall, a wonderful experience from start to finish and I’m so proud of my new diploma! CD-ED is the way to go! :)”
Marissa Dumas, GOA Graduate
Most of the jobs I wanted to do were the types where I would of had to of moved far away from home to do, and that is something that just wasn’t an option for me. I love my area and I love the fact that I am close to all my family and friends. I did not want to spend the rest of my life working at minimum wage. I talked to a few friends of mine who took the General Office Administration course and I got really interested in it, I read up on it and eventually decided to take it. So, here I am now taking the course and going to have the job I really want.
Samantha Freeman, GOA Graduate
To be honest, my eyes well up when I think of the opportunities this school has given me even thus far. I am able to stay home with my son who I am raising alone (who means the world to me), AND continue my education. What more could a girl ask for? My son is going to thank me one day for taking this step to offer him a better life. I look forward to bettering myself too. I feel like I have a fresh start and like I am a new person. Even though this program is just one small step, its still a step nonetheless in the right direction.
Kristen Merinsky, GOA Graduate
My current job is preparing Excel spreadsheets and letters for clients. All of my administrative procedures course comes in handy, every day. I do filing quite a bit so my filing course was an excellent way to help me. I just want to thank everybody involved with CD-ED for helping me make it through, even at the worst of times.
Kayla Foster, GOA Graduate
I loved the General Office Administration program from CD-ED. The instructors are great and your fellow students were always willing to help if you were stuck or just to have a nice chat with about the program. Sad to be finished but also excited to start my new career.
Jennifer Atchison, GOA Graduate
Probably the most positive thing I found with the CD-ED course was the instructors were very knowledgeable and they were easy to reach if I had any questions. They were pretty helpful.
Wayne Nielson, Digital Imaging
The difference between this course and my last [at a different institution] is amazing. Sadly the assignments from my last course were not really challenging enough to really get the information in your head. I feel much more is required of me now, which in turn I’m sure I will have a much better grasp of how to use the software and apply what I have learned once I complete my course.
Vicky Jaggard, Digital Imaging
I thought that the course was, at first, hard but as I got farther in the course I found it easier to follow and very rewarding.
Lisa Coombs, Digital Imaging
Other CD-ED Graduates
My experience with The Centre for Distance Education has been absolutely fantastic! The staff are second to none, they are compassionate, patient and understanding. Everyone I have spoken with is always more than willing to take time to listen and provide help. I have told many people about CD-ED and I hope that they decide to take a course in the future. I certainly can’t say enough about how I have been treated over the years with the courses I have taken.
Pearlene McManus-Brightman, CD-ED Graduate
I am currently working in a small gaming company. It’s ok, but I want to get further and I felt learning shouldn’t stop when you finish school. I wanted to perfect myself in what I love to do. But with time and all it is difficult and sometimes I lack motivation. But DArTT works very well with my own schedule and gives me motivation.
Anh Thu Le, Video Game Art & Illustration - Quebec
Of all the courses I researched this was the one that offered the best balance of class for money. The Art Institute of Pittsburgh online division accepted me into their 4-year program, but would have cost $86,000. The AI in Denver had an affordable one month class, but I determined that I wouldn’t be able to learn enough in just a month to make it worthwhile. I love making things. I am enjoying learning how to use the program more efficiently and making so many wonderful things. I am excited to continue improving my skills to make even more amazing creations.
Lauren Braden, CD-ED Graduate
This school gave me the opportunity to continue working and upgrade my skills without interfering with my schedule. This school also has a whole section of their home study program that is dedicated graphics or creative industry which I have not seen in any other home study program. They have people who actually have worked in this industry instead of people just teaching you how to use software.
Denise Grandy, CD-ED graduate
I would like to thank everyone at CD-ED for their support and encouragement throughout my course. It has been a great pleasure to have got to know you all (over the phone of course). I will gladly keep referring my friends to check out your courses. Thanks again, keep up the good work. The school will continue to grow with the employees that it has. You have inspired many and will continue to do so. I would give the school an A+++!
Debbie Moores, CD-ED Graduate
I’m recommending this school to all my friends.
Cassandra Strain, CD-ED Graduate
The staff and school have been more than I could have hoped for, being very understanding as I have experienced difficulties in my personal life. That they continue to be so supportive truly makes this school a step above other institutions I have had experience with. I would recommend CD-ED to anyone seeking a home study course, especially for those like myself who have difficulty interacting in a conventional classroom setting.
Malcolm MacMillan, CD-ED Graduate
I was surprised at how many different courses were available through distance education. I had been looking at other courses through different schools but none seemed to really delve into the subject matter as much as CD-Ed. I definitely recommend this and any other course offered through CD-ED to anyone looking for a career change or maybe just an upgrade in their current one.
Manuel Villanueva, CD-ED Graduate
I find this the most challenging experience I have ever taken on, the work is hard and rewarding beyond what I could have imagined it would be. The instructor is patient and fair allowing me to complete my training at my own pace. When I am finished I know I will find the work I always wanted, bringing stories to life. Thank you.
David Bursey, CD-ED Graduate
I always wanted to learn how to animate for movie production but never had enough time to take the course. When I discovered that 3D Animation was provided by the Centre for Distance Education, all my dreams of learning this type of digital media came true. The 3D Animation course provides the flexibility for my schedule, and all the learning resources I needed to understand the processes. The course is set out on a time line that gives you the learning edge of quickly understanding the basics and how to expand on your acquired skills.
Robert Prince, CD-ED Graduate
The assignments were relevant and well thought out. It did not take me long to find this work and what is good is the fact that it is in my field.
Dominique Schwartz, Web Design
Before I started my course at CD-ED I was barely even familiar with computers (just able to turn them on, basically). I didn’t think it was possible and there were times when I felt that I was never going to accomplish finishing the course, but through determination I was able to and now I have completed the program with Honours. Quite an accomplishment.
Cheryl Drummond-Tattrie, Web Design
Things have been great since I completed the program. The summer experience I had I wouldn’t have traded for anything. Thanks for everything.
Elizabeth Murphy, Web Design
The idea of study at my own pace and schedule seemed perfect for me because I do a lot of freelance work and cannot be in a classroom all day. In the program I learned not only artistic skills and techniques, but, project management and several other skills necessary for working in a professional environment. I got recruited as a 3D Artist with Hydrant Studios Inc. in the Niagara region. We work on video games (XBOX 360 titles) developing assets and characters.
Alejandro Mendoza, Video Game Art & Illustration Ontario
I would recommend CD-ED to anyone. I found that CD-ED works hard at guaranteeing your success in your course. Course materials are better than most and expected. Bravo!
Andy Waterman, CD-ED Graduate
Everything is going great and when I do get stuck on a problem the staff and school are great. I want to let everyone know that if they decide to take a course with CD-ED, they are making the right choice. Everyone is great and helpful at the school.
Christina Atwell, CD-ED Graduate
I never thought in a million years I would be a college graduate, I don’t think it has sunk in yet. I can’t believe that before taking this course I didn't even know how to turn a computer on! I have learned a lot and hope to learn more with my next course.
Charles Matheson, CD-ED Graduate
Support from the school is excellent. Once again thank you all for making this learning experience enjoyable!
Jeff Porter, CD-ED Graduate
I like that you can schedule your own study time and that there is help anytime you need it. I’m very pleased with my marks and how great of an instructor I have.
Stephanie Bilby, CD-ED Graduate
I’m pleased overall with the friendly service and helpfulness of CD-ED.
Ches Brushett, Web Design
The instructor support during my program was prompt, helpful and knowledgeable. The actual material was challenging in some sections, but overall was very manageable. I have had many opportunities arise in my search for full time employment. I would feel very comfortable recommending CD-ED to others.
Andrea Reid, CD-ED Graduate
After taking a course through the Centre for Distance Education I feel confident I can pursue what I wanted to do. The instructors are extremely helpful and knowledgeable. If I had questions or problems they were always there to lend a helping hand.
Jonathan Arthur, Web Design Graduate
I must say that it has truly been an amazing ride so far. As always the learning and practical method of all the modules are fantastic and I am happy for the hands on exercises and tasks that are given to really help understand the subject well. This style of learning has really made me a different person than when I started. At this juncture, I have managed to achieve a lot and I feel proud of myself.
Jacqueline D’Silva, Web Design Student
This program has taught me so much so far. I am grateful every day that I made the decision to take it. I have a friend that is also taking a similar program in another school; she hasn’t covered anything we have and she is not enjoying it at all. I showed her what we’ve been doing to date and she was blown away. I am pretty sure she’s going to be signing up soon :-)
Christina Paige, Web Design Student
This course is not what I expected at all. IT’S SO MUCH BETTER! I wasn’t expecting to learn how to build such complex websites, especially in such a short time. The material is very up to date and easy to follow and understand. I have found the staff at CD-ED to be extremely supportive and knowledgeable. I have a very good foundation to start my new career!
Kerri Anderson, Web Design Student
You have very dedicated instructors who not only know their subject but take a personal interest in individual student’s skills and career development.
Oluwole Giwa, CD-ED Graduate
I chose distance education because it fit my schedule and lifestyle. I am a single mom and needed flexibility. Before starting my training, I had no knowledge of the software. I pretty much learned it on my own with the help of my instructor. Whenever I needed help, she was there working out the problems with me. I have learned a lot from her and now I am getting paid gigs.
Aida Alves, CD-ED Graduate
The programs offered are unique and varying and actually addressed what I was interested in, both academically and for future employment. I’m so happy that I found CD-ED. If I ever had a question, the answer seemed to be rebounded back with lightning speed. Also very encouraging, never negative. I understood almost everything. So far my CD-ED educational career has been challenging, satisfying and wonderful. It is all worth it.
Kristine Picken, CD-ED Graduate
I was looking for a course that would teach me the foundations on which I could build and one that could provide me with the required knowledge but would not require three years or more of study such as university. I really appreciate being able to focus on what is important.
Ruaran Bradshaw, CD-ED Graduate
My instructor was absolutely wonderful. She was always pleasant, and calm. She helped me every step of the way, and even gave me second chances at bettering myself. I am the CEO / lead project coordinator of a start-up video game development company. I owe it all to CD-ED.
Geoff Nelson, CD-ED Graduate
First I want to thank you for all your help and support throughout my course in Human Resources Assistant. At first I was really nervous to see what was to come and excited at the same time. I wasn’t long settling in with the surrounding support from all faculty. If anyone asks me where I got my education from I am not long telling them it was you CD-ED that helped guide me to where I am today. I can honestly say I am living the dream now.
Marsha Sanford, CD-ED Graduate
I signed on with CD-ED, so I could get a better education, and therefore career. I wanted to continue my education, but in my own time, as I am a busy mom of three. CD-ED was perfect for me. I was able to stay on track and complete my course with a better mark than I expected. I would recommend the Human Resources Assistant course to anyone that is interested in this area of study. The teachers were great, the information was helpful and useful, and there is a lot of support to help get you through!
Miranda Musso, CD-ED Graduate
CD-ED was the ideal choice for me. I was able to work full-time and still manage to get my diploma. CD-ED was there for me when I felt overwhelmed. They are an incredible support team. I was skeptical at first about online education, but it was definitely the best decision I ever made. A big thanks to everyone at CD-ED.
Sophie Vaillancourt, CD-ED Graduate
From the moment I called and went through the interview and application process, I was amazed at how welcoming and kind everyone was. I was afraid of the long journey that lay ahead and having the encouraging staff behind me, supporting what I was trying to accomplish for myself, was inspiring. They helped me transition from being at home with my baby girl every day to working full time. They understood that there is a world outside of school and were sensitive to the things that were going on with me, even at my worst. I never once felt like just a number, I felt part of a family. If I ever need help on any assignment, there is always someone there, and it seems no matter when I call, my instructors make me feel like I have hours of their time and that it is just me that they have their attention on. I can’t express the emotion, gratitude and how proud I am, to be a part of CD-ED. If I ever need to do any other schooling, I won’t think twice about where I will go.
Savannah Williams, CD-ED Graduate
Being a mature student I was interested in distance education, and I looked at many schools before choosing this one. I am so grateful to have found this school just prior to enrolling in a different one. If you are considering web design I highly recommend that you check out the CD-ED site, [and] I am more than please to tell you why. The instructors are phenomenal, the support is second to none, the courses are very extensive but well presented for beginners, and they assist you from beginning to end. You still have access [to this support] after graduation.
