About Shaw Academy
The Shaw Academy, found online at ShawAcademy.com, is a company that says their goal is to help people learn new skills quickly and efficiently with the world’s large live online educator program.
How Does It Work?
According to their website, Shaw Academy wants to help people master new skills in just about four weeks’ time with their high quality online courses and webinars so that you can “transform your life and those around you.”
Their website says that they offer courses in Photography, Finance, Health & Wellness, Marketing, Technology, Design, Beauty, Business, and much more, and all their courses are delivered via live, interactive webinars at scheduled times, twice weekly. All students will receive email reminders before the live lesson and all times will be listed in your local time zone.
If you are unable to watch a live webinar due to scheduling conflicts, their website says that all classes are recorded and put up in the members’ area so that you can get access to them when you have the time.
Their website does that all courses at Shaw Academy are independently accredited by an internationally recognized body for CPD purposes, which ensures qualifications are in line with the most current professional standards.
Because this company offers such a wide variety of courses and classes at this time, there is no one single price that you will pay for a class you are interested in taking. Instead, when you go through their online course guide and look at the classes that are of interest to you, Shaw Academy will clearly display the cost of the course, the course timeline, course requirements, and any other information their students will need to have before they commit to a class.
This website is very clear that all fees paid to their website are considered non-refundable. They do say that their customers are able to cancel their membership at any time without penalty, and they will continue to have access to all their course materials until the end of the current subscription period at which time your membership will be discontinued.
Customer Service Contact Info
Customers who have questions, concerns, or complaints they would like to direct to their Customer Service team can contact them by submitting them directly to their website through their Contact link.
At this time it appears that Shaw Academy is well liked in terms of the courses they offer and the fact that they provide access to live instructors with time for Questions and Answer Sessions. However, customers must know that even if a company claims that their courses are accredited, it is still your responsibility to do the necessary due diligence to determine if this course meets your professional needs as not all accrediting bodies are recognized by all fields.
Competitors and Alternatives?
There are so many websites and companies that work hard to provide people with access to online classes and learning opportunities, including Coursera, Lynda, Khan Academy, and many, many others depending on the types of classes you are hoping to take and the format in which you are hoping to take them.
