Reviews and testimonials

I have sat through many inductions, but this is the first induction that kept me fully interested. Dennis kept the class fully aware at all times with his knowledge and light hearted approach but was always direct.
Robert, S - Onsite

While theory for me is not the best way for me to learn. Annie has kept the topics very interesting for me to enjoy.
Kenneth - Townsville

As someone without any prior knowledge of the coal mining industry, Phil made it easy to follow the course and checked in to make sure I was all good. Thanks.
Rae J, Townsville
