What Our Students Are Saying

Robert Potter

Diploma of Civil Construction Management + Diploma of Local Government (Operational Works)

“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.”

Gary Shakespeare

“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 relating to the workforce/workplace were relevant. I believe both GTI staff and Mr. Ross hicks have been very supportive and always available to assist, guide, advise when asked. 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.”

Michael Schroers

“I have 3 x Diplomas with Global Training Institute and am now completing my Advanced
Diploma so I can go to University. I now work overseas in Laos and have sessions with my
Trainer via skype and emails, and I use the online area for everything. The courses have all
been great and it made me confident to apply for higher positions, which I now have. The
support from Global is excellent. The supplied materials were very helpful to use for developing
my work skills. I am able to use my former experience and evidence in my assessments. I would
recommend the training to others 100% – very good school, good Trainers and very helpful
staff.”
