Hi Anne, just letting you know I was successful with my application for the Works Overseer Position that was advertised at Burdekin Shire Council. I am starting the new job next Monday. I am sure it was the Diploma’s that got me across the line, thanks to Shane and yourself. Kind Regards

“I believe both GTI staff and Ross Hicks have been very supportive and always available to assist, guide and advise when asked. I think the course was an accurate reflection on what I’ve been doing for the last 6 years and confirmed the policies and processes relation to the workforce/workplace were relevant. I would very much recommend the training to others as a method of formally recognizing what they already do and to qualify them for future employment at a higher level.”
