I completed the WHS & HR training online in 2020. Content which generally can seem dry is made very interesting by this team. Webinars were well run and broken down into manageable topics. Over the 12 weeks you could come away from each webinar, complete your assessments and then implement into your business without feeling overloaded or overwhelmed. I found this delivery ensured that what I learnt was put into practice and by steadily implementing I didn’t overwhelm business partner or employees. A great way of doing to course. “ – Erin, Business Owner, Lockhart NSW
