Our Stories

Trainers are Supportive

I really enjoy training as AST and I like that the trainers are very supportive and the class work is informative. I think when I finish my course I will definitely be ready to step out into the Aged Care industry

Well Worth It

I found the First Aid Course to be extremely beneficial. Having never undertaken First Aid before and raising two boys, it was always a great fear of mine that I would not know what to do.

An amazing journey

I successfully completed Certificate III in Aged Care and feel honoured to be awarded as BUPA Aged Care Studies of the Year.

Overall it… Read more “An amazing journey”
