Big thank you to Steve who has been fantastic from start to finish - always there for guidance and support.

Geoff, my assessor, was fantastic. Always available on the phone and scheduled visits to complete on-site assessments at convenient times. Due to his commitment and assistant to my learning, I was able to complete the course relatively quickly. The E-portfolio side of things can be quite hard to navigate and could possibly be made easier but generally, the entire course was well supported and well defined.

Great help provided by Steve. Really appreciate all the hard work he put in to help me to complete the course.

Robert has been a great help all the way through the course and is a great person in general. Hope to work with him again when I do level 7.

Tony was excellent. Helpful, practical and despite me moving over several sites, was always willing to help out. Very happy I did this course.

Great help from Brett - he has been very patient but persistent with me and kept on top of everything. A good course overall. Thank you.
