Sanja Zubcic at City Parks Services

“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.”
