“It has allowed me to pursue a higher position within another organisation. Numerous topics I was able to discuss at the job interview, which I learnt during the learning phase of these courses. I would not have been able to pursue this new position had I not completed these courses. I have already recommended the training to others.”
“This training was particularly relevant to my work and provided a formal structure and understanding of what was required on the job; it has really helped me place things into perspective. The training helped provide a more professional approach and an appreciation of the tasks undertaken at work. I would highly recommend the training to others in the construction industry particularly at management level.”
“The management units gave the confidence that I’m more than capable of stepping up to a management position. I found the support processes very sufficient to get me through the course with 3 months to spare.”
“I can’t say enough for the support team; it has been the best from any course I have undertaken. The training materials as well as the website are very good and the trainer input if needed was great, they are always willing to help. Yes, I would definitely recommend the course to others.”
