“We find the real difference between LSV and other training providers is that they’re able to combine their experience as an RTO with their subject matter expertise in the areas of water safety and first aid. This makes sure that the information provided to the candidates is always current and can be considered best practice.
There is always somebody available to offer support when it’s most needed and when the occasion problem arises the office team have the knowledge and experience to assist the trainers.”
