“Using the employment measure of small business, there were 2,065,523 small businesses in Australia employing less than 19 people, accounting for 97 per cent of all Australian businesses by employee size. There were 51,000 medium sized businesses, employing 20 to 199 employees, which is 2.4 per cent of all firms. Only 3,700 Australian firms employed over 200 people in 2015, meaning that large businesses account for only 0.2 per cent of all Australian businesses.”

Currently attending a Cert III in Security Operations at North Lakes. Staff are brilliant and very helpful. My Trainer/Facilitator is very professional and extremely knowledgeable in many if not all facets of the Security Industry. I also have a great group of class mates, working together and being a team is very important to me. See you all tomorrow �

Have just completed and received my Certificates for Security Operations cert 3, First aid/CPR, Cash in Transit and Security firearms/defensive tactics. Trainers were great and very informative and also seemed very knowledgeable of not only the topics covered but the industry the training was relevant to. Would certainly consider further training and refreshers with Assest anytime. Thanks again to James, Ian, Lyn and Kevin. (Hope I got your names right) greatly appreciated. Also a shout out to Tenille at reception who was great to deal with and very helpful, Cheers.

I recently completed my Cert II in Security Operations and Aviation Security training under Craig Tyson’s teachings. Absolutely great course and loved every minute of it. Two short weeks later upon finishing my qualifications I was interviewed for a Aviation Transport and Screening Officer position. I have now been accepted into ISS at Brisbane Airport and I have Craig and the whole Asset team to thank!

I just finished my Security course at Logan a few weeks ago and these guys were brilliant. Especially our onsite trainer at Logan (I wont say his name to help him out - lol but he knows who he is). I have never seen a trainer actually keep things real so well. Most trainers I find are just pompous twits, but he was fantastic and would do all my courses in future with him. Great job as a company also guys. Thanks

Completed my Cert III in Security Operations today at the Meadowbrook location, I found my Trainer Matthew Wall extremely knowledgeable and someone who took great pleasure in sharing that knowledge. As someone who has partaken in a few courses (IT Certifications and one failed Tafe Cert III years ago) I found this course to be the best one I have done. If I was to come across someone wanting to know if there was a place that was good to get their training through I would certainly encourage them to follow up with Asset Training, and most certainly recommend Matthew as a trainer.

I'm looking forward to the next part of my journey :D

I have just decided to make a career changes and booked in and did the Cert 2 and Cert 3 in security. We had James the first week and then Kevin, both of these trainers were excellent and knew what they were talking about plus any help required if we needed it along with humour. I will be going to do my aviation screening course on 30th Jan and have already applied to ISS and MSS but they need my license no so as soon as that is acquired and before will be looking for jobs. I thoroughly recommend females to book in and try this course out as we are needed in the security areas too.

I am not in the habit of writing reviews normally however I have been dealing with Brooke Shellback regarding RPL and other training matters and have to say I have never dealt with anyone so helpful and quick to action requests for information. Brooke provided the "go to" person that you seek in an organisation to actually get things done and professionalism is a refreshing find. Asset Training Australia presumably know how well served they are by Brooke but if not I hope this helps. Regards Graham Matthews

I have just finished the 2 courses (Cert 2 & Cert 3 in Security Operations) and that was delivered across 2 weeks and the staff, trainer and training was fantastic. I would highly recommend Asset Training Australia and the Townsville instructor Dave Powell for any security industry training in the future. Dave was very good at making the instructions interesting and it was very well delivered. I felt that I actually learnt and retained the information and also understood all that was being discussed, Dave has a lot of security industry knowledge and it shows. I will be doing more courses here with Asset Training Australia – Townsville in the future, a very big thanks to Dave for an exciting course and to Renee for all of the help that was given to me as well, thanks heaps.

Firstly, I wish to commend Trainers James & Craig on their communication, knowledge, and professionalism throughout the entirety on Firearms & Defensive Tactics. In my opinion their outstanding work ethic is an invaluable asset toward students and Asset Training Australia. I have nothing but admiration and praise for both James and Craig, and I would not hesitate to recommend my family, friends or colleagues to attend their classroom.
