What I liked most about the course was that it was easy. It was also short, just like the name, it was enlightening and the study materials explained the course explicitly.



The course was very well played out.Tutors and staff were very helpful. I learned a lot and would recommend this institution to anyone who would like a good experience with learning.



The course expanded my HR knowledge since I work with staff members on a daily basis. Also, I do not have enough time to attend contact classes due to the nature of my work so this course was very rewarding for sharpening my skills.The fact that the course material is of an international standard is also is a bonus point.



I have found this course very interesting. Not only I could study in my own time, but I could also submit it when I was ready. It was very convenient.The course was well explained, all the guides helped me understand what was required of me. I will definitely look for another course at Brentwood University.


A great course! It an interesting course, easy to read and understand. I was able to take up the course and study at my own pace despite my tight schedule and workload and Am very sure it going to pave way for me as I venture into the HRM department of any company of my choice.



A well-presented explanation, with short comprehensive phrases and paragraph. Very clear example of each topic. No need to struggle to read. Very at ease and stress-less course for everyone.

The course was very interesting, I learned a new skill in Human Resource management.I really liked that part on how to part on staff training and development, I learned that as managers we must always seek to motivate an employee because a motivated and empowered employee will serve the customer satisfactorily, hence will bring good output resulting to profits for the organization.



I am a student of BOLC, I have completed the training HR Management Course (Short Course). And the course makes an impact in my life, the course is now a vital part of any organisation. Every organsation is required to have this department. What interest me most in this course, is that it enabled me to develop enough competent employee skills, abilities, knowledge, and experience needed to achieve organisational objectives. Free online course material available for students at ease of pace. The delivery method of this course is through online delivery which is less expensive, and it was able to reach out to me all the way from Nigeria. This is very important to me now and in the future as it adds to my career in life. Thanks to BOLC.



Although a free short course, it had very important information that I wanted to acquire. After taking the assessment, I felt more empowered as someone doing a diploma course. One thing that surprised me is the format in which all assessments have to be submitted, even for the short courses.



The course is very educative and intuitive. What I like most about the course is assignments, the questions were straight and very easy to answer if you read through the course material.



The study materials for the HR Management course (short course) were very detailed yet easy to read and understand. The online learning was flexible which allowed me to combine my work with my studies; I learned and submitted assignments at my own pace. The user and study guide provided all the procedures for using the system, completing and submitting assignments.Aside all this, my assignments upon submission were prompting marked and my certificate was readily made available to me without delay.


The guide was simple and easy to use. I like the fact that the short courses are free as not all of us can afford to study especially if the exchange rate in your country of residence is ridiculous. The feedback was prompt and I did not have to wait for my certificate of completion. I can only hope that the short courses, in future, will not be restricted to one per student. All in all, I was extremely happy with the progress and the outcome and will definitely resume studying with BOLC where I can.


easy access and the complete material to study. although is a short course, the materials given are plenty and I able to learn a lot.



The course curriculum or design is very well organized. I learned a lot of new HR strategies by this course which could be beneficial for both career and self-development.Hope, it can help lot more HR practitioners (to be successful in the industry)
