Reviews and testimonials

From my initial queries and booking the course to undertaking the training today, my experience with WorkSafe Connect has been outstanding. The information provided via email in preparation for the course helped me be prepared with ID etc. and to know what to expect on the day. The facilities were comfortable and airconditioned. Greg was an exceptional teacher. He explained everything clearly and thoroughly and the training was conducted at a good pace. I would recommend this course to colleagues. Also - the real examples given by Greg helped with the material too.

I learn't a lot of information today and it was very helpful. Greg made it easy for me to understand and retain a lot of information. I enjoyed the training greatly.
