    Default Who to study with

    I would prefer to study online but not sure which places I should avoid is there a way to look up who the legit ones? I am thinking about signing up with open collages.
    If it helps i am wanting to study either hr or just do something in the travel/tourism industry

    Subbing. I am in the same boat as you, only I'm looking at aged care, pca or integration aide. So tough to decide!

    I've done a fair bit of research on online courses and from what I can gather, as long as the course code matches up, it's legit. There's a government website (name escapes me) that you can type in the course you want and it lists the providers who offer it.

    Reputation and industry perception is another matter altogether.

    ETA: the website is training.gov.au (no www at the start)

    Could you contact any industry bodies that could provide you with some legitimate course operators? Maybe have a look at some HR people on Linked In who have good roles in reputable companies and see where they studied.

    It really depends on your industry, I come from a marketing/communications/digital industry so yes, everyone is on it. It's the professional version of Facebook. It's a good networking tool if you use it properly.
