AP WEDDING ACADEMY NEWS

December 2019: The wedding industry is a fluid and fast moving industry so we take great care to ensure that our training keeps up with the very latest trends and developments. Although our current course - Version 10, released 10/2017 - is still one of the finest wedding planning courses on the market, we are proud to announce that following a 3 month review, Version 11 is due to launch in February 2020! It will be a formidable set of training materials and all students currently enrolled will automatically receive a free copy !

Note to Students: The structure will remain the same so just continue with the next unit in V11.

    SOME FINER DETAILS

    It is a little know fact that you learn considerably more from a Tutor-led, home study wedding planning course such as ours, than you would from a costly classroom based program, where you are expected to compete for attention with a dozen other students with random abilities and skill sets. Here are a few other notable facts and figures for you.

    • We offer unlimited*, exclusive 1-to-1 access to your own Tutor with at least 10 years experience (*obviously within reason!).
    • Our professional and personable Tutors provide excellent guidance, support and detailed feedback throughout the training.
    • Our online and distance learning courses enable you to study at home, in your own time and at your own pace.
    • Instant communication with your Tutor available via Live Chat, Skype or telephone.
    • The First Class Course is benchmarked minimum Level 4 on the UK Government’s Qualifications & Credit Framework (QCF).
    • The Advanced Course is benchmarked minimum Level 3 UK QCF.
    • The Short-Course is benchmarked Level 2 UK QCF.  

    Students enrolling on our First Class course now also benefit from our complimentary 6 Months Graduate Mentoring program, worth £600.00! And students enrolling on either of our two Advanced courses receive a FREE professional wedding planning contract worth £300.00! This is the contract you will use when you start booking clients.
