They have an excellent range of courses on offer, as well as superb customer service that made me feel welcomed and supported throughout my studies.
I spoke with Tamara, who was wonderful. She gave me all the information about the course and kept in touch during the enrolment process. The AIPT team are always available to help you and answer any questions you may have.
Having the opportunity to study my theory online and at my own pace allowed me the freedom to continue working my full-time job. The face-to-face branch of the studies was an amazing experience to be able to work with my instructor, who had many years of experience in the industry.
AIPT supported me from the moment I joined. Even through Covid times, they carried on and were always there for me if I needed anything. AIPT customer service is a real credit to them; they are amazing.
Studying with AIPT allowed me to study while working 5 days a week and start a university degree. They made this possible by allowing flexibility throughout my study while still ensuring I received the highest possible education throughout the course. The range of payment plans was also a significant factor for me.
