    Financial trading and investing

    Great information in this class, the instructor seems very knowledgeable. I am unsatisfied with a couple of things, in class #3 the instructor was referring to things on screen however, his mouse pointer wasn't clearly present and I couldn't tell what he was referring to until he let his mouse stay on one spot for longer than 2 seconds then the info appeared, I suggest they use a solid mouse pointer with a yellow circle around it, I had to watch the video 3 times for clarity.

    There is some lag in the Shaw Academy system, I am getting emails stating that I missed classes that I've attended, I emailed Shaw about the error only to get an automated response (which is fine) telling me someone would followup, the follow up was a form email telling me to check the help section, Of course I did that prior to emailing them, that response is unacceptable.

    I recieved a flood of emails today (Wed may 27th) telling to RSVP for my class (May 25th Class) then a few more telling me my 3rd and 4th classes were starting in intervals of 4 hours and one hours, obviously, a mistake but I don't have any confidence that I can trust their email system to try to communicate with them about it.

    I am enjoying my class, however it seems like I'm dealing with simply a website generated to run the business and not an organization with any personal touch, it's all automated. That's fine for this beginning class however, I would need a more personal touch if I were to go further and I don't think this is the place for that

    Diploma Course - New leadership and Management

    Finished my first class which was great. Platform is easy to use, content is straight forward. Will say I wish there was a pause button on the video as the instructor really flies through the slides. Also, wish the courseaterials were more affordable, and came in a package for the whole course (rather than independent modules). Other than that, having a positing learning experience.

    Project Management

    I've began using this software for the Professional Project Management certification and had nothing but hiccups from ordering my toolkit to the software correctly sending me lessons that start on the wrong dates. I've received 2 lessons for Module 1 in the same day. Hopefully it will be corrected by the end of the course.

    Project Management

    I have completed 3 of my 9 lessons, which I signed up for as a refresher for Project Management. The pace is a bit swift, but since it is a refresher for me, it is actually perfect. Someone made a comment in my first class that the instructor was going too fast...again, a swift pace. I love the ability to go back and replay the lesson for clarification on anything that may have been missed. I tried this class for free and love the opportunity to try it out. I probably would recommend Shaw Academy for people who want refreshers in various subjects.
    Con - I do not like that the class I missed had to be rescheduled before I could access it. I would like for the modules to be available per their schedule whether I happen to miss one or not, especially since they are not live sessions. Additionally, I would also appreciate access to all of the modules at once. Being an entrepreneur, sometimes my schedule shifts, so having access at anytime would be helpful if my schedule should happen to change on a particular day.

    Coding for Kids

    It's been a great course so far and I really love how easy it is to understand. There's a little problem with the live lessons though. I can't seem to get my questions through to the instructor. Is it supposed to be like that?? Other than that, I have no complaints. I would definitely recommend this to other people if they're up for it. It's great!

    Project Management

    I accidentally clicked on the one click purchasing and spent €29.95 and not sure what I spent that money on because the PayPal receipt does not show what I purchased. I sent an email and I and still awaiting a response. I really would like to know and get a refund of that money because I'm on the trial. Also there are too many emails coming in, I appreciate the reminders but there are too many, got multiple messages saying my class has started when it wasn't time as yet. The good thing is that the class was pretty seamless and easy to understand, I appreciate that.

    Photography training

    I only had the first lesson for now, but it seems quite good for a beginner like me. I was lucky to get it for free, although they are quite insistent on selling you some more stuff. I guess it's fair enough for them to earn some money. I'll probably consider other trainings even for a fee!

    Graphic Design Online Course

    Shaw Academy are Scammers, Fraudsters and Criminals, nothing about them is genuine or legitimate and they are taking advantage of unemployed or furloughed people trying to better themselves and learn a new skill during lockdown. After initially being interested enough in a Graphic Design course to enter a free trial, I then never received any confirmation email or course resources. The only thing I did receive was a 49.95 bill shortly afterward, with no communication or warning, and well before the free trial period was due to end. I have attempted to reach out multiple times and not received a single response to my requests for cancellation or refund. To date, I have never received any information regarding my Graphic Design course.
    Shaw Academy have four different listings on ‘TrustPilot’. Three of these listings have awful, negative, scathing reviews of the company from genuine unsatisfied customers, and all the negative reviews are pushed onto these smaller listings. There are is then one, larger listing for the company with a few bad reviews but mostly fantastic, amazing, 5* reviews which are so clearly paid for reviews or 'bots' that it's amazing they have been allowed to stay up this long. Why would you allow a company 4 profiles, to hide their bad reviews from people that only find the listing with the good reviews? I would like this answering as soon as possible, and I think the best option would be to merge the 4 listings together and resolve the huge number of fake reviews.
    Avoid this sham of a company at all costs, and do everything possible to name and shame them, and expose them for the predatory criminals that they are.

    Photoshop Class

    I really like the lessons. They are really informative. Shaw makes it easy to pay attention and go over all of the information, so that you learn the correct step by step method/process. The scheduled class times kind of drives me crazy, since I am not a student, I am a professional. There are times in my day where all of the sudden I am now available and would love to go on and just take a class right then, but you can only re-schedule classes in the future not for the present moment. Additionally I wish there was a way to change all of the notifications about classes. I receive phone calls, text messages, notifications from the app and about 4 emails leading up to each class. It's infuriating. I have it on my calendar, I am aware I have class, please stop bombarding me with notifications! Even after I attend class I get about 3 more emails claiming that I missed the lesson. That is frustrating. If the class didn't have such good information this would be enough to make me unsubscribe altogether! Another perk about the program, is after the class, you have access to the full recording of the class. This is really useful because you can skip ahead to specific parts of the lecture and pause it as you go through it, incase you missed something, or want to see again, or take notes on what to do. Overall I think it's a great product, they are just aggressive on the notifications.

    Do they have your bank details Beth? Cancel your card immediately. Look up "Shaw Academy Scam". They are taking deliberate fraudulent payments from thousands of people. Read the one star Trustpilot reviews

    I like the course. I would recommend it to everyone

    Grace B. 27-05-2020

    The teaching material was graphically top-notch! very well explained but could do with some less speed in the presentation since not everyone learns at such a fast pace.

    Tova 28-05-2020

    I find the course outlay is great! Though they say the course is free it consitently pops up with purchasing your certificate which in my mind shouldve been clearly stated it has to be paid for...a bit misleading....In the course outlays; I would've liked an actual interactive session versus automated responses....though a course is free you should give your audience at least close to the same experience a paid client would get, this in turn can boost reviews. Overall, I'm thinking of doing another course and noticed some of my friends are already doing courses

    Charu 28-05-2020

    Online class is easy to learn

    Hutchinson Mark 28-05-2020

    Just finished the first lesson in the Diploma of Digital Marketing and it surpassed my expectations. Very slick, informative, very useful for myself as I am career market researcher, specialising in ad research and wanting to plug any gaps in my understanding of digital media which now accounts for over 50% of ad spend in Australia. If the course remains as useful as the first lesson, it will be brilliant! Thanks

    MIchael B 28-05-2020

    Rupali Walvekar 28-05-2020

    Abraham Abuul 28-05-2020

    Great opportunity, excellent system and follow-up etc. I also love the lecturer. Every point is explained clearly and made easy to understand. My reservation is in the aspect of cost of study. One may come into program with a mindset that it's free only to find that they have materials to purchase (I understand these materials are optional but every serious student would want it) and then pay for the certificate also. I suggest you give potential students a hint at what to expect cost wise so one will not be found in a fix in the middle of the program or even miss such a good opportunity.

    Michelle Randolph 28-05-2020

    What can I say. I love Shaw Academy! The free offerings are a God send. While we are social distancing we can still get our learning on. I am currently taking a guitar, photography, and coding course. Very challenging, but thorough. Great instructors and great follow-up. Thanks SA!

    Barb Froud 29-05-2020

    This online learning platform has been my source of inspiration and motivation during this pandemic. For a person like me who is passionate about learning, this has offered me a lot of new concepts on Digital marketing and Finance which would massively help me, moving forward. These new learning will help me adopt and make myself relevant in the new normal. The lessons are short but full of good content. The lessons discuss all the basics and give tips on how we can maximize the teachings. I would highly recommend this. Thank you Shaw Academy. I am looking forward to take on more lessons with you :)

    Laura 30-05-2020

    A was scrolling down on Facebook and saw the promotion for 4 weeks , I've been thinking about developing my knowledge in a few topics related to my job. Overall is a good plataform for learning online, classes are straightforward and easy to follow. I'm not quite happy about the amount of emails that they send with reminders and mistakes about classes not being taken, maybe that can be improved. I will definitely recommend and already did to my family and friends.

    Jamaluddin 30-05-2020

    I just started the course today and it was awesome. Everything is really on point. The massages are clear . The only area I think should be worked upon is that that the lectures is a bits faster. I am glad I enrolled.
