We are still open for business

For years, CTS has been doing things just that little bit differently and providing niche market services to clients and customers all over the state.  The COVID-19 pandemic though has ushered in new rules and regulations.  Organisations that want to survive in this new era must adopt new ways of doing business.  While we are no longer regularly working from our head office in Bunbury, we are still providing the same customer focussed support to students, teams, leaders and managers.  We are just doing things differently:)

Our team has set up home based offices to minimise the likelihood of spreading or catching the virus.  We are keeping up with the latest news, rules and regulations.  Luckily for us, we had already been working to set up virtual classrooms, tutorials, online learning and one to one virtual coaching and support for our clients.  COVID-19 means we have accelerated this new way of delivery to more of our courses.

 

Our one on once coaching work across the state has taught us many things about adult learning and what a challenge this can be when it has to be done from a distance, so we already know that what we have to offer works.  So, while you might see less of our people face to face, you will still hear their voices and see their faces on conference calls.

Our services include:

  • Safety Representative training - currently moving this training online and aiming to deliver the first virtual course in May, we will keep you posted.
  • Coaching for performance management, personal development and skill building - using virtual conferencing
  • Business, safety and leadership qualifications available online through our dedicated learning portal at https://ctslearningacademy.com.au/
  • Safety auditing, inspections, procedure writing

So don't hesitate to contact us to find out how we can help you during this challenging time.  Email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call 1300 262 807.

No, the amount of information and the fact that all presenters really know their stuff"- CS
