Our testimonials

See what our satisfied student are saying about us

I was very impressed

Originally from Tawau, Sabah, Muhammad Syazwan was intrigued to enrol in the course after he read through other students’ testimonials in Facebook and Instagram. “Aircademy also teaches us how to handle pressure at work and to handle the situation in in a professional way,” adds Muhammad Syazwan Tahir. According to Muhammad Syazwan, the programme prepared him with the basic knowledge of the airline industry so that he would be more prepared and confident during the interviews with tha major airlines. Muhammad Syazwan accepted the offer from Firefly to become the Ground Operation Officer for a year and two months. For him, it was a dream came true to work in Semenanjung Malaysia. After that, he moves on to become a Flight Steward in Airasia until now.

“Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish”

When I first saw the email on Nestle Sales College regarding Professional Certificate in Sales the title was, “Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish”. It was the tagline that caught my eyes and made me want to find out about the programme and how it can contribute to my self-improvement. After some considerations, I took up the courage to sign up for the program despite the fact that I had just recently transferred from Singapore to Malaysia and had a career change from the field of technical to human resource. It was an awesome experience for me and I would recommend this course to anyone that wants to have a foundation understanding of the commercial aspects of business. The programme also gave me the confidence to sign up for a Master degree in Human Resource Management. Thanks to OUM and Nestle for such a wonderful program.
