  • WHS Management Systems

    On behalf of the Wollongong Golf Club, I would like to express our thanks and gratitude for all your assistance and the training Austrain Academy have supplied to our staff. The ability and knowledge of the Trainers and Assessors have surpassed our expectations and assisted us in our growth and development. You have all gone above and beyond to train, help and direct not just myself but several staff members and we thank you.

    Wollongong Golf Club has operated for 117 years in the Illawarra region. We required a WH&S system which could grow throughout our diverse business units. Austrain provided us with a solution that continues to work.

  • Food Safety Management System

    We undertook to run the Food Safety Supervisors course run by Austrain Academy for all our venue Chefs and 2ic's and, although knowledgeable through their past training and experience, all managers went away from the program with new knowledge and a thorough understanding of what is required in running a safe and professional food business. Thanks Austrain!
