Testimonials

"I can honestly say that the students coming out of Flex are more prepared for what is about to occur than students from other training organisations.  We have found that they are more mature in their approach and are willing to make contact with me prior to starting so I can meet them first. The supervision of the trainees is excellent and the supervisors are regular in their assessments.  

I have employed many Flex trainees over the years and will continue to do so" - Facility Manager

"We have been offering work experience to students from Flex Training Australia and I am delighted to inform you that most of the students we have from them were offered a job after their work experience. The students have great knowledge and skills in relation to work practices may it be following policies and procedures, manual handling, OSH and infection control" - Aged Care Facility

My favorite part of training was the first aid course.  It really made a difference in my life. 

The first aid trainer is good and full of energy.  She knows the course very well.  

My favorite part of work experience was spending time with clients after lunch when there was not much work- singing, dancing and talking with them! 




First aid trainer was fantastic!  Trainer used a variety of techniques to make learning "stick". 

I would recommend Flex Training Services because of the amazing people I met and all the cultural diversity drawn to Flex. 

My favorite part of training was EVERYTHING because I got alot of help from all of the teachers. 


“I completed a 6 ½ week course with Flex Training Services. The classes were helpful and very fun. It was great meeting new people at FTS! During my time on work experience, I was supported and encouraged; the staff members were great. I was offered employment at the facility before my work experience was over, I received my Certificate and I am starting work straight away!”
“The facilitators at Flex Training Services were extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I especially enjoyed the Provide First Aid training; I learnt so many valuable skills!
