What our CIPD Online students say

  • This is my favourite way of learning! I loved it. It fits so much better around my schedule and helps to speed things up!

  • It was very convenient to be able to log on at home. It also saved travelling time and once we had finished I could go straight onto whatever I wanted to do at the weekend. As it is over the weekend it is great that you don’t have any additional time travelling. I found it just as useful as being in a classroom.

  • Jay paid meticulous attention to the assessment criteria and explained it brilliantly. He had a great sense of humour which kept the class engaged throughout what could have easily been a tedious weekend. I am truly grateful for the valuable session that Jay has delivered and I look forward to any other upcoming modules that are run by him.

Can you provide training for my HR team?

We can absolutely accommodate groups of in-house students or tailor a course to your organisational needs. Just get in contact to discuss your requirements and speak to one of our friendly course advisers today.

I’m planning to study from home, what equipment set-up is required exactly?

All you need is a decent internet connection, speakers and a microphone. Headphones are optional.

Can I login and join my Live Online session from a public space? e.g. coffee shop or on a train

So long as you have a decent internet connection, laptop computer or a table with a microphone and headphones yes you can.

What is the difference between CIPD Online and Live Online courses?

Lots of other CIPD training providers offer CIPD 100% online courses where students learn on their own schedule without any real time instructor. Acacia’s Live Online classes require students and instructors to be online at the same time and all attendees must be online and connected to the internet at that specific hour.

I live outside of the UK, can I still study with Acacia Live Online?

International students must be proficient in English language (spoken and written) and able to attend scheduled courses as per the timetable. Therefore we’d recommend that countries within +/- 2 hour time zone of the UK would be okay. Please contact us to discuss your options further or see our FAQ’s below for our Live Online study option.
