Yes. Many current and past students phone us very excited about new positions they have been offered with either their same company or a new company. One of the guys phoned with an “Anne, I have a $20,000+ promotion for me if I can get my qualification completed ASAP- what do I still need to do?” – needless to say that his last couple of assignments and evidence came in very quickly.
Congratulations to Henery one of our Advanced Diploma Members, who phoned so excited about his new job where he could determine his roster, workload and came with a $50,000+ pay rise from his previous role. Henery attributes much of getting his new job to having gained his formal qualifications. His interview also went really well because his RPL and assignments had forced him to think through all his experience and knowledge, and could easily relate it to the interview questions.
I also had the delight of being rejected. We were looking for a new trainer, so I phoned one of our graduates from last year to offer him the position. He informed me that his new role (which he got as a result of completing his qualifications) was great – high pay, good conditions, happy in the work and that there was no way I could prize him out of it to work with us.

Yes, company training is very popular. Companies throughout Australia train their employees with us. For these organisations we run workshops, customize training and assessments so they match their organisation. Everyone still benefits from the online resources, and workbased assessments. Workplace training is usually done for more than 8 people. Training can be conducted in-house, or at an agreed venue or even residential. Some companies choose non-accredited training subjects (choose our workshops or tutorial subjects) whilst others put a group through a whole qualification.
Have a listen and read the testimonies from graduating students (found in each of the ‘Schools’ and under the main menu (access from the Home Page) but these are the 7 main benefits that our students list from having completed their qualifications:
1. Self-satisfaction/self-worth improved (many had the skills and no paper to prove it)
2. Job promotion and bigger paycheck (higher chance of)
3. New skills and knowledge that could be applied to both work and life
4. Improve confidence in current role
5. Stronger leader – their team gained more confidence in them – improved management skills
6. Job security – better performance reviews
7. Recognition by others – now have a qualification and paper to prove their skills
