Reviews and testimonials

Absolutely loved my training with Worksafe Connect. My trainer Annie delivered the WHS material in a way that we all understood, regardless of the fact that we were all from different work backgrounds with different learning styles and levels of understanding. I've learnt so much from the course and look forward to implementing all that I've learnt at work and getting our office up to speed with our safety practices.
Fiona D, Townsville

Thanks again for a great course - you made it so much fun and very informative. It was an absolute pleasure to have you as my trainer, I wouldn't change anything in regards to the course . Annie, thank you so much for your guidance through the two weeks and I really had a ball.
Christopher R, Townsville

While the overwhelming majority of assessments are completed during the 10 days of training, there are three simple workplace activities for the students to complete between the two sessions (in either a real or simulated workplace). The trainer assessor will provide each student with a workbook to record these workplace activities and will discuss the workbook requirements in detail during the first session of the program. The trainer assessor is also available for phone and email support throughout the program.
