“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.”
“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!”
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.
“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.”
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!
“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.”
“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.”
“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.“
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.”
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.”
“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.”
Coach & Gratitude Practitioner
“Asset College provided me with the perfect RPL process for my needs. The process was simple, efficient and cost effective.”
“Thanks for all of your assistance in my recent submissions for the Graduate Diploma qualifications, Strategic Leadership and Vocational Management. I found your assistance and processes exceptionally thorough and focused on helping the student to achieve success in the most direct and efficient manner. Your fees for the service were more than competitive and your personal guidance was extremely beneficial. I wish you and Asset College the very best for the future.”
Acclaim Corporate Services
“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. Highly recommended and I will definitely contact them first for my training needs.
Australian Institute of Learning
“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.”
“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.”
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.”
“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!”
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!”
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.
“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!”
“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”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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!”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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..”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
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.
“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.”
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
“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.”
“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.”
“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!”
“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.”
“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.”
“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!”
“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!”
“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!
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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!”
“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!”
“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. ”
“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.”
“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!”
“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.
I highly recommend Asset College – North Lakes to all executive officers who are looking for continuous professional development. Don’t take my word for it, enrol now and experience it first hand!”
“I had a great experience completing my Advanced Diploma via the RPL process. Henry was very helpful and assisted me long the way. I would highly recommend ASSET to anyone interested in further studies and qualifications.”
“I would say that overall my time at Asset College was a great experience. I would strongly suggest people to definitely do a course through ASSET as the trainer I had was amazing and took the time to explain all the necessary stuff!”
“Natasha has been very supportive during my study, always available via phone or calls back promptly. She is very knowledgeable in this field and explains things well.”
