What our Students Say

Australian Training Professionals provided comprehensive and easy to
use course materials for my
Certificate III course in Education Support... I found out about Australian Training Professionals through a
friend and would likewise recommend them to others.
 The orientation was excellent - especially for someone like me who hadn't done formal training / coursework for many years. SH

What Our Students Say

I choose Australian training professionals to complete certificate 3 and certificate 4 in education support as I could complete the units by correspondence. This worked into my busy schedule as a working mum. I thoroughly recommend the courses and I have since gained employment within the education department. 


What our Students Say

The flexibility of the study required to complete the course, worked well for me as it allowed me the time necessary to attend my family’s needs… I would not hesitate to recommend Australian Training Professionals to anyone else. Sue Mc
