( Poppy, 21/05/2018 ) Q: Good morning, I am looking into one of your nutritional courses and on point number 14 (14. 100 hours of industry meetings. for more details please see: http://adlhomestudy.co.uk/learning/workplace-projects) I already work in a beverage industry would this still apply to me or will I need to get 100 hour meetings with my employer?

( Kirsty, 13/11/2016 ) Q:

Hi, I'm wondering whether you know of any official or regulatory bodies which you can register with with this course? Just so I have an idea of which specific sectors in my own region I'd be able to apply for work with? Thanks!

( 15/11/2016 ) A:

Thank you for your question Kirsty. We do not know of a legal regulatory body that you can or indeed need to register this course with, There are professional bodies with their own courses, but they may or may not be viewed as being of any more value than our own course. This is because, employers are quite often more interested in what a course has taught, rather than where the qualification came from. Our courses have been written by industry relevant professionals and updated on a regular basis to remain of value to employers. They have also been assessed by an independent organisation, so it is this organisation which has deemed the Advanced Diploma as a level 6 standard, not ourselves. Finally, we are a recognised Centre for TQUK - An Ofqual approved Awarding Organisation. Every layer of recognition by independent bodies help employers to know that you have studied a respected course that has taught you to a high level and standard.

( karin, 15/09/2014 ) Q:

How well is this diploma recognized in the UK? What kind of certificate do you receive after finishing this course. And can I do the 100 practical/industry hours in my homecountry in India? Will that be accepted towards this course?

( 16/09/2014 ) A:

Hello Karin,

ADL courses are recognised worldwide. This course is also approved by the CMA, whom you can read about here: http://www.the-cma.org.uk. Once you complete the course, you will have your qualification issued by ADL and by ASIQUAL. You can do the 100 hour practical at your locality, provided it fulfills the criteria requested.

( kome, 18/11/2013 ) Q: How long is the course? How much is the course? Can I do it from nigeria?
( 19/11/2013 ) A: Hello Kome, This course is roughly 800 hours of study. The time frame in which you do this study is entirely up to you, but a good pace of 10 hours per week means you could complete it within two years.
