Testimonials

“I got around our teams today and had a chat about how they experienced our recent Mental Health training session. Everyone I spoke to were all really effusive with their praise for you. They said the learning was really well balanced in terms of presentation and activities and they enjoyed the small group work. They felt the material was handled well, especially given the gravitas of some of the content and felt it was pitched in the right way. The whole team appreciated the obvious expertise you have.”

“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.”

“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

“I am just emailing to say thank you for the training. The guys I have spoken to have said they enjoyed it – one of the best they had done! I believe Brad Smith was the one who ran at least one of the sessions and he was particularly mentioned. Many thanks to all involved – its great when the trainees enjoy their session – makes it easier to book them next time.”

“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.”

“Arbor-Tek Ltd (Christchurch) have utilised the first aid training and refresher services that LifeCare Consultants provide for the last few years. I would have no hesitation in recommending their services to any individual or business. Their online scheduling and booking system works well, and for the slightly more tricky bookings you can speak with a ‘real’ person or email your request through. LifeCare Consultants are prompt and knowledgeable with their responses to these types of queries. The actual first aid training they provide is awesome, the trainers customise their training approach specific to the industry that you work in (where possible) and every training session I have attended has been fun and informative.”

Natasha Norman at QSE Manager, Arbor-Tek Ltd (Christchurch)

“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.”
