It's our 10th Birthday! Come join the party

written by


This month marks 10 Years since the Academy of Wedding & Event Planning launched in Australia with just one course and a handful of students. 10 Years later, there are 6 online campuses located around the world and thousands of students and successful graduates working across the wedding and event industry as employees and business owners.
Throughout August, as we celebrate this milestone, we are offering incredible savings on courses so you can start writing your own story of success, with our expert team, supporting you all the way. We are also offering everyone who enrols a special commemorative Ebook written by the Academy CEO Kylie Carlson; The Academy Guide to Instagram for Wedding & Event Pros.

Here’s how our Birthday Sale Works

1. Find your course. The best way to find the course that is right for you is to talk to one of our Course Advisors.  Academy Course Advisors are experts on all things ‘the Academy’, but importantly they are also experts within the Wedding and Event industry.  To speak to a Course Advisor for help choosing the right course for you, choose the campus nearest to you from here.
2. Once you have your Course its time to do some wheeling and dealing with us. Each Course Advisor has a pool of discounts to offer during our birthday month. Whilst there will be savings up until 31 August, the best deals will go early. That means if you are serious about launching your wedding and event career, you need to act fast!
3.  Once you have been offered a deal, you have 10 days to finalise your enrolment and pay.
There will be many ways for you to join in the fun with us across our Birthday month, but if you are not a student of the Academy as yet, or one of our successful Graduates, now is the time to talk to us about the exciting career in weddings and events we can help you to have.  Contact one of our regional Course Advisors today for help choosing a course and to find out more about our 10th Birthday Sale.
