From my initial interactions with AIPT through to the day I completed my course, I could not fault one thing! The team are so friendly and helpful and made me feel really welcome and comfortable all the time.

Studying with AIPT allowed me to study while working and starting a university degree. They made this possible by allowing flexibility throughout my study while ensuring I received the highest possible education. The range of payment plans was also a significant factor for me.

I chose AIPT because it allowed me to complete my Certificate IV while simultaneously working full-time. I had access to the online platform and the ability to complete my practical hours outside of my working hours.
