Steps to Success – Aldes Training Academy

The 10 steps we describe below are designed as a comprehensive checklist on your way to the fulfilment of your academic goals and dreams. At Aldes Training Academy we realise that the decision to study, and what needs to happen on your path to eventual success, can be intimidating or confusing.

We therefore suggest that you take the opportunity to use this guide and see exactly what needs to be done every step of the way. As you complete each step you will easily be able to see what comes next, and you can even refer back to the checklist at any time to make sure you are on track.

Steps to Success

01

Make the decision to study

This decision is perhaps the easiest one to make for many people. After all the rewards of a top quality education are quite obvious. Better career prospects, more rewarding work, a higher salary and personal satisfaction are just some of these rewards.

However it is a decision that should not be taken lightly. There is some sacrifice and hard work that will be required to achieve your goals.

Some of the questions you should ask yourself are

  • How will my decision to study affect others such as friends and family?
  • How will I pay for my studies?
  • Will I have time given my work and social commitments?

With enough determination to succeed, and the support of others, you will definitely succeed. Family, friends and work colleagues will be an important part of your eventual success. Talk to them and get them to be just as excited as you are

02

Decide what you will study

The programmes and courses offered by Aldes Training Academy are the very best available. You only need to decide which one is perfect for you.

It is important to choose a course that suits you as an individual. Choose something that suits your personality and abilities, and align your choice with your current or preferred career.

Remember that certain programmes and courses have entrance requirements. Carefully check the course descriptions on our website – each one describes the entrance requirements – if any.

Naturally the expected time you will take to complete your studies is also a consideration. This information can be found in the pages relating to each course.

03

Decide on your preferred payment plan

We have various options regarding payment. There is sure to be one that suits you.

The cheapest option is to register and pay in full upfront for all the individual subjects needed to complete your chosen qualification. You receive a cash discount on the fee for each subject. In this way you maximise your overall savings.

You may also elect to pay for individual subjects in cash without paying for all of them at once. This is a popular payment method as you get a great price without having to pay for everything upfront – unfortunately you do lose the cash discount.

Finally many students chose to pay a deposit and the balance of the tuition over time. You do end up paying a bit more – but this is the most efficient way of doing it from a monthly cash flow point of view.

Whichever way you decide to choose – our courses remain great value for money!

Finally – at Aldes Training Academy you can pay by EFT, credit or debit card or by making a direct deposit to our bank account. In each case all you need to do is indicate which option you prefer on our enrolment form and we will trace the payment on our side prior to finalising your registration.

04

07

Other assignments are self-assessment exercises. They do not have to be handed in – however they will enable you to measure your progress and knowledge of the material covered. They are a valuable tool to be used in mastering the subject matter.

08

Register for examinations

Most Aldes Training Academy courses require a summative assessment or examination. If this applies to your course please note that it will be your responsibility to register in time for the examination. You will also have to pay any examination fees directly to the examining body.
