Hear what others have to say about Asset College!

“I have owned firearms, and completed firearms training in several countries. 

ASSET was by far the most comprehensive and taught an old hand like myself new aspects of firearm regulations in QLD specifically.

I look forward to completing my category H license in the near future, as well as bringing more friends along for their courses too.”

Owen Holt-Taylor


“I just received my Diploma certificate in the mail, in a beautiful folder!

My eyes started to water.  I couldn’t believe I could have done it, especially when I was about to give up on one of the modules. You really pushed me through to do it and never gave up on me. The words of encouragement was all it took to believe in myself, and it has certainly made me a better person and more confident knowing this, no matter what age!

So thank you so much for keeping me on track and even though I may be a bit older than the average student, I know now I can do whatever I put my heart and mind too.

Thank you thank you thank you Natasha..

You are the BEST!”

Bernadette White


My son Rod and I have just completed your Firearms Safety Course A&B. I have previously completed similar courses but this course was so thorough , well prepared and well presented it is a credit to your organisation. In particular to the two trainers Andy and Dave…They have very excellent knowledge of their subject and related legislation (which is a bit tricky) and any question raised during the course was handled with patience and courtesy and accompanied by practical demonstration where appropriate. I would appreciate it if you would pass on my comments to Andy and Dave.

” I just completed certificate III in security operations at your north lakes location, just some feedback for you course. Fantastic training package and quality trainer! I have done around 40 overall courses and 15 inductions on mine sites this year alone, your trainer James Hickey is by far the best trainer I’ve seen without a question, his course for delivery, confidence, knowledge and help, you are lucky to have such an asset working for your company, I would recommend you guys any day. Please thank James again.

Brett Curtain


“I just completed my Cert III in Security with Logan ASSET. Matt & Lynn were my trainers. I got the best of both worlds. Teaching & technique style were different. But I loved getting aspect from both Instructors. Very knowledgeable and I just absolutely loved the vibe Matt & Lynn bought to teaching. Lynn your style of teaching gets the theory through my head. Thank you for making my time at ASSET AMAZING and I will definitely be doing my refresher courses through ASSET.”

Rose Tuilau


I have to tell you, everything you taught me I have used already and it’s only been 2 weeks – your experience and the way you tailored the content for the theory study is absolutely 100% spot on for the real world of working in security today – I’m even showing a couple of people who have worked in the industry for a few years new things which I learned directly from you.

At the risk of stating the obvious (& pissing in your pocket), I wanted you to know that there is nothing that you should change when it comes to teaching people about the industry.  I’ve undertaken numerous forms of study over the years & nothing I’ve done (including my Diploma) was as thorough or as spot on as what you taught me at Asset.

Although I am really enjoying the crew I work with, I honestly wish more of them had been taught by you – including guys with 5, 6, 7+ years industry experience. I know how hard it is to be in a certain industry for a long period of time & have bad habits creep in which you hope not to, but inevitably do, transfer to other less experienced staff – how & what you teach is so current, relevant & thorough, it should be QLD standard curriculum.

You’re a legend Kevin!

Sean Cumming


“Thank you for providing a professional, fast-paced and effective Cert III training course and industry-pathway supported access.

The course content was relevant, useful and in accordance with all reasonable professional expectations. A suitable balance was achieved between presentation and demonstration to ensure student participation and knowledge retention. It is my belief Asset College has successfully achieved industry best-practice and will continue to exceed expectations and stand out within the network.

These outcomes are only possible when delivered via excellent trainers and Asset College has certainly achieved this. Craig, Lynn and Glenn – your knowledge, skills and industry passions are amazing, you set an excellent example for students. You can rightly consider yourselves the industry role models. Thank you and well done, it is much appreciated.

Finally to Mike, Jeska, Kayla and Admin team – thank you for managing the administrative and information-sharing aspects of the training courses for students. You provided a very professional, efficient customer service experience. Thank you and well done, it is much appreciated.

I look forward to further training opportunities with Asset College.”

Rose Pearce


“I want to thank you and your trainers for doing such a great course and the way the trainers conduct themselves was really easy going. I’m glad I chose to do my security course with your company, I will 100% recommend you to anyone I can.”

Peter Baker


“Just wanted to let you guys know at Asset College, ISS have offered me a position, had an interview yesterday.
Just want to give you guys a big SHOUT OUT to ALL of you, even Craig. You guys are professional in what you do. Thanks for all your help & assistance to help me & many others achieve our job search goals. ”

I wish to pass on my recommendations to anyone wanting to use Asset College  as one of the best training organisations in Australia and assure you full satisfaction. In interacting with Asset College to do my Graduate Diploma in Strategic Leadership, I found them to be very helpful, quick, efficient, they listen to your needs and they find the best RPL solutions.

Hugo Rojas 
UNAA NSW Executive Committee Member –  Fundraising Director


“In seeking my Graduate Diploma of Management (Learning) time constraints in compiling evidence was a major concern. The team at Asset College provided guidelines for documentation for submission, which I was able to supply.  The application went through without a hitch, I commend ASSET on both their research and efficiency.”

Gary Wilson
RII Skills Centre


“Mark and the team at Asset College are extremely experienced in the RPL process and provide a quality and efficient service for post-graduate qualifications. They are first point of contact when I require Recognition of my prior learning and life skills.”

Graeme Jeffers
Public Accountant


“I have had the pleasure of working with Asset College on two qualifications now and I could not recommend them more highly. Having run my own RTO previously, I can tell you that they are incredibly professional, timely, and make everything as seamless as possible. Mark Costello has been a genuine pleasure to deal with and is a compliment to our industry.”

Jina Allen

“Asset College provided me with the perfect RPL process for my needs. The process was simple, efficient and cost effective.”

Molly Roche

Peter Warren

“Asset College demonstrated a high degree of professionalism and total commitment in assisting me achieve my Graduate Diploma of Management and Graduate Diploma of Strategic Leadership. Committing to learning while operating a business can be daunting, but the trainers positivity and faith in me has made it so that I never feel unsure about anything and I can’t thank them enough for that. They are always contactable and willing to explain anything and everything to you. I have also recommended this organisation to my colleagues who have come back full of glowing comments.

Ricky Naicker

“Asset College has assisted me in achieving my Graduate Diploma of Strategic Leadership through their efficient RPL process. My assessment was done professionally, promptly and an assessment outcome achieved in a prompt space of time. I recommend Asset College for professionals seeking to have their current and past experience as well as learning recognised and awarded accordingly.”

Shaun Smit
Intervention Projects


“I approached Asset College to assist me to evaluate through the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) process, my formal qualifications and years of experience as a Trainer, Developer and Manager in Government and Defence for two Graduate Diploma’s, one Diploma and one Advanced Diploma. Asset College helped me by thoroughly explaining the process through e-mails and via telephone conversations. The process was a simplified step by step process of me submitting claims against the various competencies and through a thorough interview process.  After a lot of research on my part and by following guidelines set by Asset College I found the experience not to be as daunting as I first envisaged. As a person who has conducted many RPL’s I would recommend Asset Training Australia to any person who wishes to go through the RPL process.

Once again thanks for Asset College’s guidance and professionalism throughout the who RPL process.”

Tom Devine
Overseas Training Officer


“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.”

Natasha Rice

“I recently completed the Certificate II and III Security Operations course at Asset College at Spring Hill. 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 are friendly and approachable, nothing was too much trouble and the follow up has been awesome! Highly recommend Asset College!”

Jeremy Baker
Asset Training Australia Security Trainee, 2016


“I just completed my Certificate II and III in Security Operations at North Lakes. I was immediately impressed the moment I picked up the phone to call the North Lakes office to enquire. Within 10 minutes I was enrolled into the next Certificate II class. I felt exhilarated that my new career was suddenly underway at such short notice. I couldn’t wait to start that Monday.

The trainers were very experienced security professionals, that blended the curriculum with real life security examples and the right amount of humour to enhance the learning experience.

I was so impressed with the Certificate II class I went on to do my Cert III and my Firearms & Defensive Tactics course as well. During the course they assist you in the application process for getting your security licence and and I can’t wait to start work in the industry.

Thanks to James, Craig, Glenn, Peta, Brooke and the rest of the Asset College team for a fantastic experience and to the new friends I met on the way!”

Keith Holman
Asset Training Australia Security Trainee, 2016


Just thought I would drop you a quick message to thank you all for an extremely enjoyable and worthwhile training experience.

I completed my Cert 3 in Security Operations and Cert 2 in Aviation Transport Protection back to back in December.

I am new to the industry having decided on a fairly late in life career change, so large in life experience but without Security Industry experience.

I am shortly to begin work at QUT with Wilson Security and have great hopes that it will lead to a full time permanent position.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank my trainers, Craig and Lynne for their excellent training and real life insights into the industry, which have been extremely useful in my endeavours to gain a start in the industry.

I would anticipate training further with you in the future and just wish to congratulate you on your professionalism.

A big “thumbs up” to all the team at Spring Hill.

Martin Littleton


“I just received my Diploma in the mail and I must say that I was pleasantly surprised with the folding cover it came in. I have received many qualifications in the past, but never one with such a nice presentation as this, at least never unsolicited. It just shows class on your part!

Please don’t change, its refreshing to see that someone still cares about the way they do things!”

Salvatore Gambacorta 


“Reaching the age of 65 was getting to be a downer employment wise.

I undertook security training with Asset College nearly three years ago and through that training got to work at both of the G20’s as a supervisor for Wilson Security in Cairns and Brisbane.  After that, employment got scarce but through the endeavours of Brooke I have just obtained casual employment with Northside Protective Services.

Must admit it was a bit of a surprise naturally being 65 and thought I had been chucked out to pasture.

Through the efforts of Brooke I am again moving forward and look forward to many more years of employment.

Thanks to Brooke  and Asset College”

Mark Harrison


“I have had the greatest experience with Asset College both at North Lakes and at Spring Hill. The lectures are very informative in the various courses that are required for the many different types of training that Asset students require.

I have recommend Asset College to several people who are thinking about doing some training. I’m very thankful for the support and there’s no hesitation from any of the staff when the graduates need assistance with doing their resume.

The on-going support from the Asset College team assisting with the employment pre-screen sessions and the recruitment sessions with several different security companies was great. I’m so appreciative of the support the team at Asset has given me.

While writing this email I received some good news – I start with S.N.P. Security on Friday night! Once again, thanking you very much.”

Darrel Altmann


“Just like to thank you for all the hard work and time you have put into getting in contact with potential security employers and in doing so I have received all positive feedback and employment opportunities from various companies.

I recommend Asset College to everyone, the team you guys have at Spring Hill are fantastic.

Craig Tyson and Brooke Shellback have helped me immensely to achieve my goals within the industry.”

Matt Gort


“I am impressed with the level of professionalism demonstrated by your organisation, I deal with a number of RTO’s, probably too much and from time to time see the not so good side of them.
Just refreshing to deal with your company and to be treated so well along the whole process. I would also like to thank the instructor Glen who conducted the course and made it enjoyable and interesting. Your professionalism is noted.”

Greg Lewis


“I email you in response to the training Course in Security/Screening recently conducted on Norfolk Island. I offer my thoughts on the training.

Craig Tyson – the Trainer arrived on Norfolk Island and commenced the course immediately. He is a great asset to your organisation. I found him to be all of the following: intelligent, witty, charming, informative, pleasant, instructive, a communicator and and all round pleasant gentleman.

As the only ‘girl’ in the group, I was treated with respect and courtesy. These are all ‘old fashioned’ words in today’s world, but hopefully still carry the meaning.

Thank you as the course provider.  I enjoyed the challenge of the ‘speed’ at which it was efficiently delivered. We had a nice working group and Craig recognised each persons abilities. The course covered all of the aspects and the print-outs provided were great and hopefully the answers were correct!

Thank you for the Certificates you forwarded to us. Most impressive. Your organisation was promoted by Craig and other courses were offered to us for completion.

Our work at the airport has commenced and of course as ‘new’ recruits just off training,  we ‘notice everything’ – thanks to Asset College! I hope that Norfolk Island council employs your organisation again. There are no complaints from the 3 new Screening Officers at the Norfolk Island airport.”

Barbara Elliott


“I started my journey in December 2016. Mike Addicott was so supportive from the start, explaining the Security Industry, and where there are so many possibilities for women, and that age is not a barrier.  I completed my Certificate III with 2 wonderful trainers James & Craig, who gave their experience of the reality of security, which all made sense on my first job.

In the same week that my Security Licence arrived, I was given an opportunity of a lifetime – I worked the 2 nights at the Adele Concert at The Gabba.  Thank you Asset College.”

Anne-Maree Cottrell


“I’d like to thank everyone at Asset College for the help I received in completing my Cert IV in Training and Assessment. Your company is so professional and helpful and I wish I had have started the course with you to begin with.”

Michelle Bartz


“I just wanted to say, I went for the Protection officer job at Maroochydore airport. SNP have taken over the contract from ISS after 17 years. The interviewer spoke very highly of you & your husband Paul. It was a fabulous interview and she offered me the job!
Thank you and Ian for putting me through my Cert II.”

Paula Berry-Smith


“Thanks again, it was a great course and I loved that the trainers really knew their stuff and the delivery was entertaining and casual as well as being comprehensive.
The whole team was lovely as well from when I walked in the door with the front office staff and also the trainers, felt really welcome and at ease.”

Danielle Clayton


“The JP course was a terrific weekend, a great course and I enjoyed it very much.
Thank you for making it so enjoyable, your teaching skills are second to
none! Bring on the next step, I’m ready for it!”

Giovanna Davey


“I completed a security course with Asset College whilst the training college was situated in Surfers Paradise, and in the later part of May 2015 I completed an Intensive Firearm Batons and other relative self defence techniques.
I feel that the level of competence provided by Lee and his team is of the highest standard, which provided for me personally a sound understanding of firearms safety and related weapons techniques.
After spending 22 years in the New South Wales Police Force I believe that the team at Asset College are a highly professional, responsible, and caring group.”

Mike Donnelly


“I am blown away by the assistance Kevin provided during my course. Without your push I know I wouldn’t have done it. I never thought of myself being smart because all I know is warehousing / trucking driving work. Tests and textbooks freak me out big time due to my skills its always been something i hide from or play it off. I am working on my writing and spelling, going to do some more courses as soon as i can. Again, thanks so much Kevin, you are the man.”

Jason Eagles


“Appreciate everything. It was a real valuable asset to me by training with your great company, I got a hell of a lot out of it.
I would recommend Asset College to anyone. Massive thank you to James, if only all instructors were as passionate as he was we would have a very clever country. Thanks again and see you next course.”

Shane Evans


“I have applied for some work with TRU Security for which I have an appointment tomorrow and also BEST Security at Nundah. Things are looking up. Can’t wait to get started. I would like to take a moment to say a BIG THANK YOU to all of the Asset College team in North Lakes. You guys ROCK!!
Many thanks again..”

Jeremy Forlong


“Just a short note to thank you to all the team at Asset College for yet another great course. Both my son and I really enjoyed the Firearms Safety Course today. Huge thank you to the young fellas as well for a very well presented course.
I am sure that not one person who attended today would have any complaints judging by the chatter outside.”
Ricky Freemantle

“I just thought I would give you a text to thank you again for all your efforts and encouragement and the support of James and other staff there. I have now landed security work of a secure nature, at the Airport DFO and it’s looking like an ideal position for me so I’m very pleased indeed. Thanks again. Keep up the good work.”

Peter Jager


“I would like to leave my honest testimonial for the Townsville Asset College training team (Dave and Renee Powell). Two of the most genuine and hard working people. I have successfully completed two courses with them and been employed as a result. I recommend them to everyone! They are resourceful and knowledgeable, it’s so easy to learn from them!”

Maria Kohunui


“Just wanted to thank you Mike for all your help and letting you know that I made it through. ISS are just waiting on my ASIC and if that comes back clear I start work as an Aviation Security Officer at the Brisbane International Airport . I am already recommending the courses with Asset College to all my friends and family. You were a great support all the way through.”

Andrea Lavell


“I have attended several security courses with Asset College at the Sunshine Coast office. The courses were well structured and informative and were easy to understand. The training was well thought out and informative in preparation for working in the real world of security as I have been in the security industry before and you need to be prepared and Asset College  does prepare students for the real world. The trainers at Asset College are very professional, polite and friendly but at the same time, helpful, well-trained and informative and they make you remember and use your own brain and thoughts while being patient with those who need a little more time and or help to learn the material required to complete the work correctly.
Thanks Asset College and many thanks to the staff and trainers. Great job, keep it up, I will be back.”

Peter Lepri


“I am impressed with the level of professionalism demonstrated by your organisation. I deal with a number of RTO’s, probably too much and from time to time see the not so good side of them. Just refreshing to deal with your company and to be treated so well along the whole process.”

Greg Lewis


“Thank you both Philippa and Glen, so much for all your help with the course, not to mention your patience!  Very much appreciated. And Glen – thank you so much for putting on a superb course, which I thoroughly enjoyed.”
Robert Morgan

“Please pass my best thanks to Mark for the reloading course on Saturday.
From his dedication to teach, I learnt a lot in a short time and I feel confident now to go into reloading by myself. I won’t hesitate to come again for another course.”

Daniel Pasquelin


“Thank you for everything. The college has been a wonderful experience and I will definitely recommend you to anyone looking to get extra education.”

Aner Penava


“During the first week of my employment with ISS, the 3 of us (who attended the Asset College screening course) have had the on-site training. We have been doing wanding, frisk search, the metal detector walk through, ETD tests, x-ray machine scanning. All of it we’ve been doing with the real people and their baggage at the International Terminal for about 10 hours a day. The mentors are extremely good and cover all areas of competency.

The mentors and the management are eager to let us in the job per se from Monday, i.e. after 4 days of training (excluding Thursday, a public holiday). It could happen, of course, if we show the good performance this Friday, which is supposed to be the last day of the training.

As far as I know 6 more people from our course are coming next week.
General impression. The Asset College course prepared us really well. We have to deal with machinery and procedures which are already familiar for us. Without it our progress would be impossible for such short time.
I am not tired of saying thank you for your work.”

Yuriy Popov


“The next course I do will certainly be with you guys. Wayne Thompson is certainly an asset to your company and he made the course one of the best memories I have to think back on.”

Brett Wheeldon


“I received my certificate in the mail – it is just gorgeous!  Thank you for making the whole process so seamless!”

Catherine Ardi


“I just wanted to let you know that our trainer (Glen) was amazing. I have done first aid and CPR classes a few times before and normally the trainer has just told us what to write and then gotten us to use a bandage etc.
Glen’s version was so much more informative and I think it prepared us all for real emergency situations so we might actually provide first aid instead of watching. His humour and constant energy made the day very enjoyable. “

Megan Goodall


“Brooke has been extremely helpful through the training processes and is definitely an “asset” to the team!”

Chris Enniss


“Thank you for an amazing weekend learning the JP course material.

Your teaching style was thoroughly witty and entertaining, your knowledge was astounding and your patience was immeasurable!I look forward to meeting up with you again in the future, and I’m hoping to have the good fortune to be able to do another one of your courses!”

Linda Innes, Life Without Barriers


“I finished my training with you last Friday and just wanted to thank you all for the professionalism and friendly nature of all your team. I was a bit concerned and nervous at first ,having to do the training, but all your staff were very helpful and it turned out to be quite good fun. Thank you all for all your help.”

Wayne Fitzpatrick


“We had the pleasure of Matt Wall’s company yesterday at Quest doing First Aid Training with us. It was a complete change from what we are used to. Matt’s way of training is informative, knowledgeable and holds the attention of even the most unruly trainees in this group.
He is a breath of fresh air. Matt took us through the aspects of first aid in theory and then the practical. Not once whilst doing this did he shirk his responsibilities and took the time to show and explain and answer many questions thrown in his direction which he answered with ease and confidence.
This gave the group the empowerment to learn so much in such a short time giving us new skill sets and knowledge. We would like to thank Asset College for sending this gentleman to us and to let this company know what an asset he is.”
Toni Linke

“My wife and I both attended the A , B ,& H Firearms course at North Lakes on the weekend, please pass our sincere thanks on to the Instructor Glen.

His training style kept the group engaged and informed throughout the training and testing.

Job well done.”

Matt Fisher


“Thanks for the great time learning over the weekend.  I’m quite excited to get started on the exam, not something I thought I would ever be – excited about an exam.”

Amanda Gibson


“I sincerely want to thank Brooke, Henry and the team at Asset College for providing me with a friendly, seamless pathway to my Graduate Diploma. I, like many senior managers in today’s workforce, are of an era where work experience was the key, rather than qualifications. In today’s world, this can be a disadvantage.

I am so glad I decided to do something about turning my years of experience into that all important qualification through Asset College’s RPL process. I was determined to find an institute which did not have a reputation of ‘tick and flick’ for money. Asset College was the right choice. I  loved the fact that I had to do some research and learn, as well as provide examples. My qualification feels real and well earned.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! 5 stars!”

Justine Murphy


“I’d like to send many thanks to Asset College, especially Craig from Spring Hill who I did my training with. He is a great instructor and made it an awesome experience.

I’ve been currently employed now with Securecorp for going on two months and had many other company’s try recruit me, but happy with where I’m at.

I feel the training provided to me by Craig has made entering the security industry feel comfortable and an all over awesome experience. Thanks again.

Will be dealing with ASSET happily again in the soon future.”

Beau Inman


“Thank you Henry! I really enjoyed this process and once I mastered the cloud portal I found it an easy way to collect and submit assessments.

Thank you for your support and patience. I have already highly recommended your company to my colleagues as their go to for further education and training.”

Kristie Bailey


“Hi Mike! I got the job at Lewis Group. I’m so excited.

With all of your awesome efforts it was ASSET that got me this job. You got me this job and your team! I will definitely give you and ASSET a huge rap for your kindness, patience and great training!”

Colin Edwards


“I will happily do my refresher with ASSET again. The educator Matt made the day very fun, yet professional at the same time. He had bucketloads of experience which helped people identify the intracicies of the course and was able to adapt the course to students with different experience levels. 10/10 Matt!”

Christopher Magers


“I just wanted to say thank you once again for being a great instructor over the last two weeks. I really enjoyed this course with you and the other students.

I would like to personally thank you for being so patient with my english and helping me a lot with my language barrier. I hope to find a job soon within the security industry.”

Samer Abou Daoud


“Have to send out a big thanks to Mike Addicott for the help that he provided me getting into the Employer Connection Events. He went out of his way to assist me with this and that was greatly appreciated by me.

The event was very interesting and if nothing comes from it, I look forward to going onto the next one that I get invited too.

Also a big thanks to Craig as it would not have been possible without his help and training. He is one of the best trainers I have ever had the pleasure of being in a class with and I have sat in a few prior to this one!

Thanks again.”

Kenneth Telfer


“Having just completed my course with Dave in Townsville I would highly recommend Asset College as a training provider. They really do deliver and care about the quality of training that they provide. They do their utmost to ensure you have support, the required knowledge and competency to successfully complete your course.

Thank you Asset College.”

Rose Allen


“I would like to thank all the staff for their professional yet comedic education and training for the Certificate III in Security Operations.  As of yesterday I have become an employee of Tru Security – in fact my first shift is this evening is with Sandstone Point Hotel and working tomorrow night at the Eaton’s Hill Hotel.”

Rodney Mayhew


“I recently engaged Asset College to assist me in attaining recognition of prior learning RPL for diplomas that I had previously earned outside Australia.

Henry Winzar was assigned to my case and after a couple of months my RPL was successful with full CERT IV accreditation for Security Risk Management. Henry was incredibly professional, extremely patient and fully engaged.

I will certainly recommend Asset College to others looking to have years of professional experience recognised through their RPL process.

With my 25 years of professional security, resilience and HSE experience globally this was an expedient way in which to have my experience and international qualifications recognised by Australian standards.”

Mark Shortman


“I would like to thank you for all the assistance with my Certificate III and Certificate II in Security Operations.  I really appreciated your quick responses to my emails and the assistance that you gave with course funding.

I would like to inform you that due to the completion of the course and the assistance by Chris I have been successful in obtaining a Permanent Part Time Job as a Security Officer.  This will be the first of many new experiences in my new career as a Security Officer.

Thanks to ASSET and their friendly crew of dedicated people. I will be recommending them to anybody I meet who is interested in the Security Training Course.  I also will be exploring ASSET’s other courses to further my skills such as the Weapons Safety course.

Thank you again Chris and Asset College!”

Michael B


“I wanted to leave a testimonial about how Asset College Townsville helped me change my life.

In April 2018 I approached Renee and David in regards to gaining entry into one of the training courses. At the time I touched base, I had four of my children in tow and it was a quick visit to get some information about cost, operating hours and time frames. This day turned out to be the best decision I had made in years.

After talking with the lovely Renee and David for at least an hour I had decided I wanted to attempt the training course. With information in hand I approached my then employer and asked for the time off to pursue these studies.

On the day I was to begin my training, I had all preparations in place to ensure my family was well organised and I could focus on the next few weeks. David was an amazing trainer and I felt as though I could ask any question.

All in all the training was expertly delivered, questions were answered and stories were shared. My favourite part was listening to David talk about past experiences.

After the training was completed I felt nervous about getting a job. Not because I didn’t think I was prepared or lacked knowledge. Because I had spent a lot of time and money training for other fields and was unable to secure enough hours to give me the financial independence I craved to set myself on a profitable path.

I now work for an international organisation that has given me job security, great hours and the potential to earn above and beyond what I expected. I have also found work in a National organisation that has given me much needed alternative hours work in my down time. So my earning potential has increased by 70% since I graduated from Assets College Townsville.

I am well on my way after eight years of struggling to for filling my life style goals and I feel proud when I talk to other people about what I do for a living and how I provide for my family.

A huge part of me becoming what I am today was the willingness of Renee and David taking a chance on me and helping me through the application and trading process.

Without their reassurance I never would have taken that leap and achieved the remarkable things I am today. Thank you Asset College and a huge thank you to Renee and David!”

Thereda Brown


“I’m extremely glad that I studied at Asset College for Security Operations. The course was very informative and I found that the practical and theoretical components were helpful for my learning style. All of the staff are well-knowledged and familiar with the industry. Overall I’m very happy with Asset and all of the staff that I trained with. ”

Alyssa Borchers


“I liked the positive and continuous encouragements I used to receive from Natasha. Doing an online course at home after a busy day at work would not be doable without such a support. In fact this course was my third course with your college and I am sure I will take more in coming years.”

Samira Saliminamin


“Thank you so much Henry for your patience, help and guidance throughout the process.

I am absolutely thrilled to gain this qualification and will certainly be looking to using Asset College again.

I would like to also add that Henry was the epitome of professionalism, and concise in his feedback to me as to the evidence I needed to provide him with for me to to meet the requirements of the qualifications. His advice and guidance made the whole process seamless.

I can’t thank him enough!”

Peter Bechelli


“All thanks for my trainer, Natasha! She was very patient with me and she always checks in with my progress. There were times where I experienced difficulties in balancing work and studies. I was a bit slow in progressing, but she never gave up hope with me.

Kathleen Loh


Hi Robyn,

Its been a little while since we have communicated. I hope you remember me.

I am getting so many offers of gigs from Asset & Prosek but unfortunately, I have to turn most of them down.

Since December I have basically had full-time work with the Gold Coast Council Parking Officers with heaps of overtime!

As we get nearer to the quieter months of the year (winter) I will probably be back looking for work so I am taking the occaisional job from both Asset & Prosek so I can stay on their books and they seem quite happy with me!

If not for your assistance after the induction I would probably still be submitting security applications having no success…. So thank-you very much.

Also, thanks for the ongoing support with employment opportunities.

My employment life looks much brighter with your guidance and support!”

“I would like to extend my appreciation for the amazing work done by Craig Tyson on my current Cert III Security course at your Spring Hill campus. The hard work and “colourful” but professional advice and tutoring during my last two weeks has impressed me immensely.

Instructors Craig & Lynn both were motivating and provided a great source of inspiration to myself and other students.

All of the team I have dealt with are amazingly friendly and helpful. From my first contact with Cathy in your call centre, then through to the bubbly Hannah at reception and Brooke in marketing; for someone who has not been trained for many years you guys certainly made it easy!

So my sincere thanks goes to your organisation for proving us with such dedicated and passionate educators and staff.”

Carol Jones


“Hi, i just want to say thank you to your company for sending Lynn to Crestmead to teach our class First Aid over the last 2 days. She is an asset to your team, an amazing teacher. The way she explains and shows us what to do has us doing it ourselves in no time. My class had the time of our lives with Lynn. She is not only professional in what she does but also funny, caring and easy to talk to. So thank you again for sending us a great teacher from ARC IV aged care support worker class.”

Amanda Heness


“The recent completion of the Diploma of Security and Risk Management provided a quiet sense of personal achievement as the qualification is something that has been on my bucket list for several years.

With that in mind I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank my trainer Henry for his consistent guidance and encouragement and above all patience throughout this process.

I highly recommend the ASSET team to others looking at undertaking study or having their professional experience recognised through RPL and look forward to the next time we cross paths.”

“My experience at Asset College Spring Hill exceeded any expectations I had. Trainers were fun and informative about everything also others that were in the building :)

Thank you to our trainers Craig and James and the rest of the ASSET Team at Spring Hill”

Lina Vaafusuaga


“Great teaching from James, both practically and theoretically. James got me extremely eager to engage in the industry. Would love to work alongside him, as he knows his stuff from head to toe. 10/10 recommend James for training.”

Nathan McClave


“ASSET makes you feel welcomed and let’s you know you have always got the help you need! I will 100% recommend this company to many people.”

Jake Black


“Robyn called to tell me how much she enjoyed her recent Crowd Control refresher training with Shayne and the First Aid course with Graeme in Helensvale.
She said other times she had done training she was just put in a room in front of a computer and told to do her book but on our course, she got to do practical activities and she was given assistance to complete as she struggles with her literacy. She said it was one of the best courses she had done and she has recommended us to her colleagues at the Gold Coast Airport.”

Robyn Moore


“Excellent service delivery from the instructors! Also online management easy flow of enrolment. Administrative staff outstanding and professional in their approach!”

Steven Bishop


“Thank you very much to Henry and the team at Asset College. The qualification process via RPL has been simple and communication with all staff has been first class and extremely refreshing to see. I will definitely work with ASSET again for any personal, so too any employee’s training needs.”

Tim Clark


“It was a fantastic experience.  I enjoyed doing the course & the instructors made everything a breeze to complete.

I find Asset college to be very professional & take a lot of pride in their work.  The course was run at a very high standard with a lot of focus on making it as good as it can be for us.  I didn’t expect to enjoy the course like I did.

The instructors are very engaging & very good at delivering information in a very easy to understand manner, yet still in depth.  James is a world of knowledge & also a very fun person to interact with.  He definitely adds another level of enjoyment to the learning.

Thank you Asset college & thank you James.”

Sam Cullen


“I very much enjoyed the training with Graeme. We had some fun as we learned and it is always great to have the trainer relate the material to real-life issues and events.

I’ve been a trainer myself for years and often find the training I attend to be a bit dry and lifeless.  Graeme kept us awake and entertained and made sure we knew what we were doing.  It was fun and refreshing. ”

Steve Allen


“It was an awesome experience learning from industry experts and trainers Matt, Lynn and Graeme, as well as the guests who came along to give expert advice and knowledge. Though some of the theory was repetitive, the practical was very enjoyable. Sufficient breaks and times to rest during class study. 10/10 experience for the course itself.”

Teomner Gasu


“Very positive course expereince. Kevin is a very personable trainer with great experiences to share, and made us all collectively as a class seek the answers to subjective issues requiring a singular answer. A clever methodology!”

Michael Wethereld


“I certainly recommend Henry…

I had a fantastic experience with my course as Henry made this ‘journey’ absolutely seamless. The support and guidance provided by Henry was brilliant and I would highly recommend him.”

Reena Ram


“Mike was insanely helpful in getting me enrolled at last minute. Lyn is the best course instructor I have come across. She knows what she is doing has awesome stories and is passionate about her job. She makes people want to do the course.  Will do another course with her in a heart beat. Thanks Lyn your awsome.”

Brian Neumann


“Really enjoyed this course with Asset College. For someone like myself who has almost zero further education post high school, apart from job/site inductions I found it welcoming and informative. I was disappointed when it had come to an end to be honest. I had an absolute ball.”

Tyler Mitchell


Thank you, I am very happy that I have completed the course!

Henry was fantastic, very supportive and patient answering all my questions!! His communication and guidance was awesome!!

Nommie Douglas


“Asset college – a must for those that want to learn something new with an excellent team!”

Peter Mayfield


“Lynn is the most amazing trainer I have ever come across. Extremely knowledgeable, brilliant example, amazing personality!”

Patrycja Powdrell


“I would like to take this opportunity to profess that I thoroughly enjoyed the course. I found it to be highly informative, and met some wonderful people along the way.

In hindsight, Lynn was a profound teacher, an expert in her field, and disseminated the course with intuitive intelligence, vast security experiences, legislation examples, pragmatic situations examples, and panache, regarding to her teaching style.

Moreover, I would like to wish everyone the best of luck with their job search! Additionally, well done Asset College, for devising such a sterling, highly valuable Aviation Transport course! Lynn was a formidable teacher, and highly recommend this Aviation Transport course to anyone who wants to get in this industry.”

Darren Capalb


“I received my testamur tonight. Thank you.

I thought I would comment that it is far and away the best presentation of any certificate I have received from any RTO, and I have a few.”

Mark Pinchen


“After being in the hospitality industry in hotels for 30 years, I was looking for a change in my life.

From day one meeting Mike & Rebecca, they made me feel welcomed. They take pride in the business. A big thank you to the trainers who do the courses, big thank you to Lynn ( great asset to company). They show confidence in all they do.

If i could advise anybody out there looking for a career change, speak with Asset College first!”

Joseph Bowie


“Asset College have been a great training organisation. The best part of the course was all of it! It was educational, it was tough and it was fun. A big thumbs up for James Hickey and Kevin McAney.

Easy to deal with and once again a big thumbs up to the training.”

Adrian Connolly


“I just received my Certificate from ASSET and would like to say thank you for your help and guidance over the past 14 months.

I’m thrilled I stuck it out without getting any RPL assistance which I could have done but preferred to do the entire course as is.

I will certainly advise anyone I know who is looking at doing the Cert IV to consider Asset College in the future.

Again thank you for all your help and if we ever cross paths I’ll buy you a drink :)”

Stephen Charles


“I was very impressed with Asset College’s efficiency, RPL process and have recommended you to several co-workers.

I will definitely be utilising Asset College for future educational requirements.”

Definatley keep you in mind for any future quals or courses. I’ll also put in good word for Asset college to my work mates!”

Terry O’Hare


“ASSET is truly professional in every way. It is focused on teaching and pointing the student towards getting a job that suits my abilities.”

Kim Wood


“The experience has been pleasant! It was simple to complete the application process and the contact prior to starting was prompt. The course itself provided a wealth of information and the knowledge from an experienced instructor enhanced the teachings. The hands on aspect and the experience that the instructor, Ian provided were the best bits of the course!”

James Miller


“The teachers were amazing and taught really well! They made the course very enjoyable and learning new and exciting new things was great.”

William Allen


“Hi Henry

Thank you so much. It has been a pleasure doing the work. It was heartening to see that after you reviewed my RPL that you requested further evidence. It was heartening because I knew then that Asset College wasn’t a ‘tick and flick’ RTO and that you took training and evidence of competency seriously. I have told fellow trainers of your organisation and I will inform others also.

Thank you again”

David Pershouse


“You honestly made my morning when I first read your email! I am absolutely over the moon!

I honestly am not academically smart, so it was pretty hard for me but I am definitely proud I could achieve this within the time frame that I did!! It goes to show that hard work, determination and sacrifices can make you achieve anything in life. Definitely learnt so many new things that I can use for my career! Very, very happy!!!

I appreciate your help and being there when I needed you. You are great at what you do! If I ever decide to do another course I’ll definitely be coming to your company!”

Ashlee Allitt


“I just completed Certificate lll in Security Operations and am so very pleased. Both Lyn and Craig are EXCELLENT LECTURERS. They were both very approachable and are very helpful when explaining using examples to make us students understand.

Furthermore both are still working in the industry and as such they know what is happening in the security industry. They both make sure you understand what is being taught and also make it realistic by using hands on examples to demonstrate what they meant while teaching.

I will be doing further course later and am glad that I took the first step to listen to Rebecca who is part of admin speaking at the Career/introduction Seminar all about the opportunites within the security industry. She is very knowlegeable and is keen on helping graduates securing employment within the security industry.

I would like to thank all of them for being FANASTIC and DOING A WONDERFUL JOB. I ENJOYED MY TIME STUDYING AT ASSET!!!!! I WHOLE HEARTEDLY RECOMMEND PEOPLE CONTEMPLATING WORKING IN THE SECURITY INDUSTRY SHOULD ENROL AT THE SPRING HILL ASSET COLLEGE!”

Vetri Ramasamy


“Trainers were full of knowledge and experience. Other staff were so helpful. ASSET have connections with a lot of companies. They supported me throughout my security operations course and I am so grateful and blessed to have had such a great experience.”

“My overall experience with Asset college was amazing and I’d definitely make sure that I’d recommend it to others.”

Daniah Adnan


“I have just received my Security Licence and am about to start a new Career as an ‘Aviation Security Officer’.

Asset College at North Lakes was a convenient travel from home and a good time frame to complete the course as I work Full time.

James Hickey was the trainer I had. I found him to be professional and good at teaching, making everything clear and easy to understand.

I really enjoyed my time there and am looking forward to my new career path.”
