About OEA

Online, In-demand, Current industry courses

Our vision is to deliver world-class, affordable online courses that can positively impact the lives of all of our students.

At OEA we care deeply about education. We believe it’s the one true element that can instil change in an individual, a community, a country, and the entire world. If you’re just as passionate about education and how it can impact you, we’re going to get along just fine.

Message from our Founder here – As a group of companies, we have trained and certified over 2500 business owners, registered almost 10,000 participants, formally qualified over 2000 students, successfully worked with over 1200 businesses and received over 300 enquiries every week.

So, we are committed!

I personally believe training and education to be the most powerful tool we have to create success, happiness and prosperity for ourselves and others.

So, we’re in – all the way!

Our MTP (Massive Transformative Purpose), which we are still working on, is – “To help people improve their business and career outcomes by preparing them for success”.

As a company, we are committed to helping our clients and students achieve great things.

We aspire to be better than we were yesterday!

Here are some of the key values we believe to be true. These are the cultural statements that guide me personally and reflectively – OEA.

Solutions – The greatest gift is the ability to resolve issues. If a customer has an issue, fix it.

Honesty – If we make a mistake – we own it.

Innovation – If a customer asks for something out of the box. We think outside the box.

Speed – It’s better to be fast than slow. If a customer needs it quickly, move swiftly.

Prioritise – Start with the customer and work backwards.

Success – If our customer is not succeeding, we are not succeeding.

This distinction guarantees that our courses meet the highest standards of quality and are nationally recognised. Upon completion of a qualification through OEA, you can expect your credentials to be acknowledged by other accredited institutions such as universities, TAFE, and federal and state government employers.

Yes, but let’s talk first. Contact us if you want to change your course, so we can make sure you move to the right pathway. We can direct you towards a new course of equal value without much difficulty. If the new course costs a little more or less, we’ll find a solution to get you sorted.

Yes. We understand that life gets in the way sometimes. Contact our support team and ask us to suspend your course until you’re ready to start again. We might also grant you an official extension. Some fees may apply.

You can contact our support office 5 days a week. We will listen to your concerns and walk you through your options. Generally, we’ll encourage you to push through. Learning can be challenging sometimes, but the challenge is where all the learning starts!

Once you complete and successfully pass your course, and pay your course fees in full, we will email an electronic copy of your full certificate to you. We will also send a hard copy certificate to your postal address.

We are not tax advisors, so we always advise you to seek professional advice. However, if the qualification relates to your job or industry, it is generally 100% tax-deductible. But please seek advice from your tax professional.
