SOME OF THE ORGANISATIONS THAT WE’VE WORKED WITH
“Compleated my RIW rail course today. The training was very well presented and the trainers were very articulate and passionate with a great source of knowledge in their delivery. Having the medical available at the same venue was a great idea as this saved me so much time. The girls at the counter spent a heap of time with us all ensuring that all the information had gone through correctly and we were all issues our cards as we left at the end of the day. Fantastic training organisation Highly recommend.”- Brad Stewart,
