Can I get a job through you?
Lots of people have, and others have been head-hunted by franchises too. When recruiters contact us looking for job candidates we will gladly forward information to our best candidates.

Is The Wedding Planner School the best option for me?
Is it possible to fail the courses?
Yes. It doesn’t happen very often, but these accreditations and awards have to go to people who have earned them, not just paid for them, otherwise they become worthless. Follow the guidance given by your tutors, demonstrate your understanding, show what you have learned. If so, passing the course will be easy.
