Kara Brooks-Koochew – Greater Geelong City Council
“Geelong have worked in partnership with LSV for over 10 years. The partnership gives us access to a full range of current resources as well as Trainer professional development opportunities.
The partnership also gives us the freedom and flexibility to offer both complimentary training (to internal Council staff) as well as broader training on a commercial fee for service basis. As a result we have a able to match our training delivery to our needs. We can deliver training to our own local facilities, whilst having the support and security offered from a top RTO.”
Roger Abel – Roger Abel Training Services
“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.”
