“I love planning events and creating memories. I especially like working with clients and I focus on customer service. My goal is always to exceed the client’s expectations. When I’m working with students of QC Event School, I encourage them to do the same. It’s the key to success. Seeing students improve and go on to start their own businesses tells me that I’ve done a good job.”
—Heather Hawes, QC Event School Tutor
Receive Detailed Audio Critiques From Your Tutor
What good is it to have a personal tutor if you never get to interact with her? QC offers you a detailed audio critique of every single assignment from your personal tutor. For each assignment you complete, your tutor will explain what you did well and what you can do to improve your skills. Ask any QC student: the level of tutor involvement is critical to your future event planning career.
Hands-on Event Planner Training Assignments
Event planning is a hands-on career, so it’s important to practice your role and be evaluated on those skills! You’d be surprised how many online event planning courses don’t require you to complete any hands-on assignments to get your certificate. When you enroll with QC, you’ll complete hands-on assignments and exercises every step of the way, including real-world case studies and scenarios. You’ll build on your skills from one unit to the next, all with the help of your personal tutor!
Get Support When You Need It
With many online schools, you purchase the course, and then you’re on your own. At QC, you’ll be supported throughout your entire tenure as an event planning student, and beyond! You’ll be able to chat online with a qualified student advisor directly through the Online Student Center at any time you have questions about your course or assignments. You’ll receive a level of support from QC that helps you achieve your career goals quickly.
“The content was educational and very relevant to me both personally and professionally. I will be putting what I learned into practice in my own business as an event planner. All the modules in each unit were fun to work on, and I especially liked that all the research I did was for resources in my own town. I now have my own extensive working file at my fingertips because of working through the assignments.
My tutor, Anita, was so engaging and cares passionately about what she is teaching. Anita’s recordings were very helpful, and I always looked forward to receiving her comments and suggestions. Anita communicated information exceptionally clearly and efficiently, added humor, and used relevant examples. Thank you, Anita!”
—Grace Amirault, IEPP
Full Business & Career Training
You can be the best event planner in your area, but if you don’t have basic business skills or career guidance, it can be difficult to find a job, get hired, and be paid what you’re worth. QC’s courses are equipped with complete business and career training to help you navigate the “professional” side of the industry.
- If your goal is to start your own event planning business, you’ll work with your tutor to come up with a business plan, create a name for your business, figure out your insurance needs, set your prices, build your online presence and much more.
- If your goal is to work for an existing firm or corporation, QC’s career training and additional resources will give you the tools to be a competitive candidate for any position!
Variety, Flexibility and Continuing Education
Event & wedding planning doesn’t fit into one box. There are many different fields you can specialize in once you’ve completed your basic skills training. Ensuring you choose a school that will support your growth into different fields is essential to your career success. QC currently offers nine professional event and wedding planning courses, allowing you to increase your earning potential as your career progresses.
What’s more, all QC Event School students and graduates can receive a 50% discount on every additional course!
