Course Reviews

Don't just take our word for it

  • “ I completed a Certificate III in Information Technology as part of a Traineeship. The Australian College was the Training provider and Brett Riddett was the facilitator. He was a great trainer - knowledgeable, enthusiastic, helpful and would explain content in more depth with those of us students that wanted to know more and were capable of comprehending it. I went on to become the Excellior South Australian Trainee of the year and completed against other states trainees of the year - I believe that the training I received from the Australian College greatly assisted me in gaining this award and am most appreciative for the opportunity I was presented with. ” Kylie M
  • “ Throughout our IT Traineeship course, we had the pleasure of meeting and working with the magnificent ACCM teacher Brett.

    I thoroughly enjoyed every single course module that we were required to do with Brett, he was full of knowledge and you would always walk away from the course having learnt something new. Whether that be about the course itself, or about the impact of climate change, Brett was always happy to share with us his smarts. I would happily enrol in the ACCM again to do further study courses in this industry, and perhaps another topic also. ” Kathleen H
