“I have just completed my Diploma of Security and Risk Management and a Diploma of Quality Auditing with Asset College. I not only enjoyed undertaking the courses with this Registered Training Organisation (RTO), but Mark – the MD and his team were so supportive, helpful and encouraging all the way through my learning.

To top off my experience with Asset College, they presented my qualification in a beautifully presented display folder. I have never worked with or seen an RTO take so much pride, professionalism and effort in their students and their learning. I recommend and encourage anyone looking into training, learning and further development for yourself to speak with Mark and his team. It is well worth a phone call.”
