“I recently completed the Certificate II and III Security Operations course at Asset College. The course design was well put together, and was presented in a manner that was easy to understand, and interesting.

Our Instructor, Craig, knew his stuff. Great teacher, good demo’s, lots of relevant info. The staff at Asset College are friendly and approachable, nothing was too much trouble and the follow up has been awesome! Highly recommend Asset College”
