Went there to register in calgary and noticed that this place is like a kindergarden. The staff are unprofessional and the owner is flirting with students and talking in Punjabi and making fun of students. This place is not looking academic at all. Don’t waste your time and money in this place.

Business writing course is plagiarized.

Business writing course is ironically plagiarized from another source. (And not well-plagiarized, at that!) Full of mistakes and, at times, incorrect information.

November 25, 2020 is an amazing program for personal growth. Negative reviews make no sense. Why would you even want to purchase a certificate or a diploma? Employers can see what you did by posting the link on LinkedIn that you completed the program. You can also input it on your Linkedin page in the education section. It’s not illegal to post a diploma from Employers with common sense know that is not a brick and mortar school. They understand that you took the time and energy to grow as a person and they respect that. Use to improve your resume and nothing else. Go to college if you are really that naive.

Courses are FREE. Certificates are NOT FREE.

I completed 2 courses and I am on my way to 3 – 5 more. They were very informative and gave me a leg up for entering back into the workforce. The courses were FREE. The certificates were NOT free. That is fine with me. I have added them to LinkedIn and Indeed and I have copies of the learner’s verification PDF. I have also taken an assessment on Indeed which was super easy because of what I learned from Alison. For those reviewers who have not received their certificates, that does suck. Especially since you’ve paid for them. This is why I am not purchasing mine so thank you for that! I also realize Alison is not University. No issues here.

I am unsure about the negative comments below. But i have recently finished 2 certification courses and 1 diploma course. I have paid money for the Certification courses and have received the certificates as well (Online certificates). The Diploma i have completed, I havent paid money yet but still they put my verification on line which i was able to share on Linkedin. The only difference i felt with them and physical college is the projects. At Alison we are not doing any project like we do in college but they share good knowledge and very useful topics. May be some of them had a bad experience but that doesnt make them totally bad. They have a very very reasonable and fair price for the certifications. Very helpful for those, who cannot spend thousands of dollars unlike other online certification courses. I am continuing to do few more certifications related to Human Resources.

Scam beware, do not give your hard cash to this sucker. Try OPEN UNIVERSITY they offer free course and are recognised. Alison is a fake establishment based in Ireland. Please save your money , time and energy to use for something better in life.
