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

“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

“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

“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.”

Chris Woodley at Firth Industries

“On behalf of all those that attended your First Aid Courses Thank you. We have had great feedback on the instructors for these courses. Both instructors were informative, easy to understand and made the course exciting rather than boring. Our participants all got a great deal from this course.”

Tanya at AMA

“The facilitator that we use for our training is fantastic. She has such a passion for her topic and her energy is contagious”

Kerryn Gregory at Auckland Meat Processing

“Just passing on the Project’s thanks for having Bryan as our trainer. When he was here a fortnight ago one of the attendees was Tony Adams, our Project Manager. I didn’t tell Bryan this until after the course finished. Tony was very impressed and said it was one of the best trainers he had ever had – kept things moving, was engaging and kept the topics interesting. Today’s course has included our Finance Manager and one of the senior staff from Goodman’s. Both of those have stopped by my desk and said how much they have enjoyed having Bryan. Please pass on our thanks to both him and the Life Care team.”

Maree Keelty at HEB Construction

“As you are aware I have been a qualified first aider since 1962 and have at various times completed training with all known training suppliers. I was very impressed when I attended the refresher course in Wellington as part of my evaluation of the training you had on offer. When you arranged to run a course for Council in-house, I was blown away. Staff members were absent from their workplace for half the time span of any other training consultants, they all raved about the quality of the course, the content of the course and the presentation which was first class. Please pass my thanks to all your staff who had anything to do with this presentation. They all deserve a pat on the back.”
