"After 11 years doing payroll at one company, I found myself back in the job market. I realised that if you don’t have a formal qualification you are at a disadvantage. Having the qualification holds you in good stead … it makes your skills recognisable"
"Having this qualification has had a significant impact on my role. Learning what I have from the course while working in the area of payroll at the same time has allowed me to gain the confidence required to perform a role which involves a large responsibility. You’re the link between making sure employees go home with their wage each week and ensuring the company is compliant and fulfilling the responsibilities of being an employer. You also have to consider a number of other areas involved in payroll including superannuation, WHS, taxation obligations and even your day-to-day enquiries. The Certificate has definitely allowed me to grow my role within the company."
"The online learning experience worked better than I expected. I had some reservations at first as I wasn't sure how much support I would have access to by remote learning. However, I was quickly informed that I had the support of the trainers at the TAFE and also staff at the Australian Payroll Association."
"Yes, absolutely. It’s an ideal course to do if you want to gain further qualifications and you haven’t really got time to do it. For a busy person, this is the way to go."
