    I would like to thank Reception Academy especially to my teacher Pierre for their support and their professionalism. The course is totally worth it and interesting. You can learn and practice the Opera PMS V5, as well as Hotel procedures. What I found most interesting is the graduation day where recruiters from hotels come to meet the students and you can get many interviews and some people even got hired that day. One week after I finished my course I singed mi contract with a hotel, so I just can say that I am very very Happy!

    Hello All,

    I would like to give many thanks to all the staff in Reception Academy for helping and supporting everyone in the course. I graduated in March 2014 and in less than 2 years I have become a Reception Manager after starting as a receptionist.

    I got invited to an interview after,then, my Front of House Manager saw my profile on the website and since then with hard work and teamwork I managed to build a career in Hospitality from nothing.

    Many thanks to Daniel,my tutor at the time, and as well to Ramin and Pierre for all the support and the best experience and the start to my now growing career in this industry.

    I also did the Management course with Reception Academy that helped me a great deal as well in my career.

    I will highly recommend this course to anyone wanting to take the first step in the Hospitality industry and can not state enough how valuable this course is.

    I wish everyone the best of luck and all the best to the team.

    Kind Regards,

    Adrian

  • Giulia D'Arpa

    Here i am, after just one day! Thinking about the first day. 4 weeks course are 20 days...and it seams yesterday! It seams yesterday when i was surfing on this web site and i spoke with Martin for more information. It seams yesterday when i went to the academy and i spoke with Jade and i booked my course. It seams yesterday when i arrived for my first day and i hated my Giulia Passarelli because she took my favourite spot!! It seams yesterday when Andrew from quiet and anonymous trainer started with a "GOOOOOOD AFTERNOOOOOON EVERYBODY!!" and i was like " Is this crazy man our trainer?!?!". I've found a small little Italian family in this class. And foreign cousins from all over the world! It has been amazing attend this course. It has been an incredible experience! I will always remember it with a big smile! I am gonna miss even the small things: 20 minutes break (yeah....of course...20 minutes ahahah) Our tea/coffee before starting, asking every time to open the front door or the lift, one hour by tube to reach the academy, the lessons, Peppe and his crazy no-sense speech, Wendy, Dermont and his very gentleman manners, Leyla and her laugh, Hortense and her sweet voice (that we heard after one week and half), Corina and her questions, Oana and her smile, my Italian girls always ready to laugh and GOSSIP! And then Moreno, Sumaya,Elena! Fantastic people! I've really met fantastic people! And then? Well... of course, our Andrew Tivnan. Small guy, strong Man! With his smile, his patience and professionalism could rule the world! It hasn't been just a trainer, but more! Sometimes a friend (let's go out to drink!!), sometimes a brother (ooooh poor Giulia! Are you sick??? what happened???). Always ready to help, always ready to answer to our questions about the lessons even via what's app! That man is GREAT! I don't know the others trainers, but with my experienca i can tell.... when students get Andrew as trainer they will be very LUCKY! Thank you "Andrea"! Thank you Academy for this oportunity! Thank you guys to have been part of this adventure together!! :) I miss you already. See you around London. You will be impressed how small can be this city and how unpredictable can be life!

    I completed my course on 26th Feb this year after a fantastic 4 weeks of written and practical learning and practice. I had the pleasure of working with Daniel and Ramin both for 2 weeks each and can safely say they were brilliant at their job. Everything we needed to know we were taught, and both always made sure that if we had questions we asked them! Through this course I've been trained in a 5 star brand way to become an exceptional receptionist and can honestly say that I'm ready for the challenge. As for a future afterwards; I was incredibly lucky to be offered a job on the day of graduation which I accepted. Apart from that I managed to secure many business cards and had a few interviews already booked. The opportunities were right in front of me and it was down to me to take them. Reception Academy is a proven establishment in training you and giving you opportunities at a future job. I couldn't believe how interested hotels were in Academy students, you will be the top choices for hotels by taking this course. I would again like to thank everyone in my course for making it so enjoyable and to my teachers, a massive thank you to Daniel and Ramin for teaching and helping me.

    Attending Reception Academy's hotel receptionist and Opera 4-week course has been one of the most outstanding experiences of my life. Right from the first day I enjoyed the course and could feel that the others enjoyed it too. My coming into Reception Academy from day to day was enough to give me a feeling of professionalism and comradeship. Working in the group couldn't have been more fun, and even if a task was harder than we initially thought, we always had our enthusiastic, helpful, and endlessly patient trainer, Ramin Semsar, to guide us. He inspired us to always work harder, made us think about our possibilities and limitations, and gave us essential advice on how to benefit from the course material and our personality at the same time. His instructions and explanations were clear, and he continually provided us with constructive feedback. I will always be grateful for his personal career guidance and boost of confidence through which I gained enough strength to finally follow my dream without doubting my abilities. Now I definitely aim to be fantastic instead of simply being good enough, and what I can thank all this for is Reception Academy's exceptional training with its exceptional trainer, Ramin!

    2 weeks = 2 job offers = NOW I HAVE A JOB!!! I started this class because like everybody I wanted to start a new job in hospitality business. Along through that I had my concern because I was thinking to not make it. I had so many question in my head every time that I was stepping in class and Ramin ( my trainer ) could understand that by just looking me in the face. He always found the right word to say to everything! We went through 9 weekends together and he never stopped answering our question even if they were the same, he gave us many suggestions and many advice and as he always said you have to do your research! If you want something be sure that you REALLY want it, you have to give your 100% in this course because the same passion that you put in it it's the same that's gonna get you a job.

    I can say that Reception Academy was the best decision that I made on my life. I wasn't so sure at the beginning of the course that we can learn so many things in only 4 weeks and find a job so quickly but after finishing Reception Academy I was really happy for all the good things that happened to me during the course and after. So many thanks to my teachers Daniel and Pierre. They are really amazing. Someone said that Pierre is like a teddy bear ready to give you a hug or just put a smile on your face anytime and he said the truth. Do not hesitate the opportunity to learn about Hospitality with Reception Academy. You will enjoy every minute to learn and have fun. Thank you, Reception Academy !

    I was very happy about what I learned during the lessons and the way how my teacher Ramin taught us all the information about opera system and how we have to approach a guest coming in a 5 stars hotel. This was the right way to find the job I wanted to do. Thanks again to my teacher Ramin and all the reception academy staff.

    I want to thank Reception Academy for their great courses and wonderful trainers! I had the pleasure to attend the “Receptionist/Opera PMS” 9 weeks course with Ramin, and the Hospitality English Course with Andrew (and Ramin as well!). Both the courses were amazing, very well organized and useful; the perfect mixture of theoretical and practical knowledge, with a lovely amount of laughter and lightness when needed! Thanks to our trainers and the experience they shared with us, I feel confident with my Opera and Brand Standards/Procedures knowledge as well as with my “Hospitality English”, and I’m ready to find the Hotel that suits me best! Besides of being a wonderful learning and training experience, it also gave me the chance to meet a lot of wonderful people and some great friends! I will surely miss the weekly appointment with Ramin, and the daily one with Andrew, but I’m sure we will keep in touch! I would definitely recommend your courses to every person out there who wants to grab the chance and change their life's path/career! Thank you, it has been amazing!

    Reception Academy is one of many things worth doing! I feel amazing and confident about what I have learnt during the 9 weeks of Sunday class. Ramin as our trainer has been so lovely, friendly and very supportive to all of us. His passion about hospitality is such a big motivation which made me to be more interested in this field. I honestly would recommend this course to all my friends and potential students. Even our final exams were so relaxed and friendly. Obviously, we all were nervous but that is a part of exams in general. Finally, I would like to thank to Reception Academy and especially Ramin for such great experience! I totally love what you do! Thank you for helping me to make a step forward into my future. As Ramin would say: 'If you can't be good, be FANTASTIC'

    Best thing I have ever done, loved every minute of it. I had Ramin as my tutor and he is a great inspiration and a lovely caring man who has guided me well. He gives sooo much support and he represents this industry well. Hope I can take all he has taught me and use it as good as he does and although I was nervous in my final exam I had Andrew as my guest and he helped make it less nervous and more pleasant wish I could do it all again I don't want this journey to end I have met soo many amazing people.

    One of the best decisions I have ever made was signing up for the 'Hotel Receptionist & Opera V5' course with Reception Academy. Graduated just over a week ago and the amount of interview requests and job offers I have received during that time is absolutely incredible! I have accepted a job offer from 'Sodexo' as a FOH Coordinator. Brilliant hours, salary and overall a fantastic company. Really excited to my new job on Thursday!! Throughout the course I have met so many great people and made such good friends. Some will be staying in London, others will be going back to their own countries but I'm sure we will all be keeping in touch. Andrew Tivnan has been an absolutely amazing teacher! Not only is he amazing at teaching but also a great person and he made the classes really interesting and fun, couldn't have asked for a better teacher. Thank you Andrew!
