    "I recently completed a Certificate IV course in Frontline Management at the Crowne Plaza, Terrigal. Our trainer was Don who, from the outset, made all participants feel very relaxed and comfortable, setting the tone for the days that followed. This was quite an achievement given the diversity of backgrounds and occupations in attendance. Don obviously has a lot of relevant life experience, making him the perfect person to deliver this kind of training. His real world examples were delivered with confidence and humour and were always in sync with unit material, which ensured we remained on track."

My increased knowledge of human resources has provided me with a greater understanding and awareness of the many functions within HR and an increased confidence in my current role. The facilitator was fantastic, very motivating and encouraging. The course attendees came from a diverse range of companies and disciplines including legal, IT, recruitment, and retail.
