Hear what our past and present learners say.
My advice would be to go to Foundation Training Australia. I’ve worked all over Australia and done a lot of Training through other providers and haven’t come across a Trainer so skilled and professional as Grant is.- David Scott, RII60615 Advanced Diploma of Civil Construction
From the day of signing up to submitting my last unit, the whole FTA team kept in touch and checked in with me often. The support I received was fantastic. I won't go anywhere else for future certificates!- Ashleigh Morrison, BSB30215 Certificate III in Customer Engagement
``The process was quick and easy with FTA when bringing on our Apprentice.``- Emma, Landscaping Client
FTA gave me the opportunity to complete a number of courses which was informative helpful with the outcome being very beneficial. Would highly recommend to anyone seeking to use their services.- Brad Gleeson, Student
My advice would be to call FTA because they make things happen. I’ve done my Landscape qual with them and then when I wanted to go for my QBCC licence, I called up and asked what I needed to do and they were onto it. Ran through the course info, identified some funding for me and got me going. No hassle, no issues, just let’s get moving.- Reese Hunter, AHC30916 Certificate III in Landscape Construction
We had a job and the third party requirement was that all the guys had VOCs. There is a cost to it but in the same token there was no downtime and that’s something we really can’t afford. We need to act quickly and you guys were great at working with us on that.- Dean Z., Civil Construction Employer
