Student testimonials

Best aspects

"The support and encouragement was excellent."

"Learning aspects of the Act and Regulations that I wasn't aware of."

"Good online portal with access to additional SafetyLine."

"The swift administrative support and assessments."

"I feel that I have received a high level of training, there was never any point in the past 12 months where the course felt like a box-ticking exercise. I believe that the standard that I was held to by my assessors has best prepared me to enter into a career in Work Health and Safety. They were genuinely invested in helping me to achieve the best possible results and offered support every step along the way, for which I am very thankful!"

"There was an excellent blend of practical tasks/assessments, and theory (studying legislation, supporting learning materials etc). This helped to stay motivated and engaged throughout the duration of the course."

"Easy to use online portal."
