Testimonials

“The training was fantastic. The tutors were great and I got some really good positive feedback from the staff who said they really enjoyed it. Thank you so much.”

June Wright at ECO Maintenance

“The presenter related to all the staff excellently, many comments made on this by both field staff and managers. Course content was also very good and what we had asked for. Considering the short notice, the service was choice and much appreciated.”

Rachel Haapu at Fulton Hogan

“The feedback has been extremely positive and goes so far to say it’s the best First Aid course they’ve ever attended. The course was very informative and detailed with staff coming away feeling very confident knowing what they need to do in any situation. They were also impressed with the training using the defib unit which is great as we have one onsite. So, I would like to pass on my thanks to everyone at Life Care Consultants and I look forward to booking more courses in the future.”

Norma Hartley at Flight Group Ltd

“Yolandi, our tutor today was bloody awesome. A wealth of knowledge and damn easy to get along with, better than every St John/Red Cross course I have attended. Keep up the good work”

Paul Clarke at Security Technician

“Fantastic facilitator to credit to her delivery. She was engaging and the feedback from the participants was great!”

Kylie Norman at Inframax Construction

“I just wanted to send an email regarding one of the New Plymouth Life Care workers – Jenny Coombe. As mentioned during our call yesterday, Jenny has been outstanding to work with over the past few years. Jenny has a wonderful attitude, and many staff look forward to seeing Jenny whenever she comes on site to complete health assessments or courses. Our work relationship with Jenny is a breeze along with her valuable knowledge and experience. We value her work ethic and willingness to make anything we throw her way work in our favour. We really believe Jenny is such an asset to the Life Care team.”

Janelle Pomana at Tegel Taranaki

“Jono was an absolute delight! We loved his energy and the way he was able to connect and build rapport with our rangatahi. Our group may be a little bit different from normal classes as our makeup are of young rangatahi disengaged from school, work and referred by the courts. So, for Jono to be able to build rapport quickly with them and keep them engaged through the session was awesome! The kids walked away with learning, and this was tested the next day and they are thrilled with their new skills! We would love to continue to use him through our time as we will be booking every 4 weeks and if his schedule allows, he would be our first choice.”

Lili Kawaguchi at Trow Group Ltd

“The feedback from the staff plus one contractor was great. The content, pace and delivery of the info was great. The bonus was that the staff really enjoyed it and openly participated. For us getting a time to suit a larger group of staff can be challenging but with the trainer(Dawn) coming to our site makes the process a lot less complicated and easier to arrange.”
