I have recently completed my Cert 3 in Security Operations. I didn’t expect much going into it, but after the 1st day my opinions were changed completely, due to the trainer. The knowledge and experience that Josh had was impressive and admirable. Not only was he professional throughout the duration of the course, he made the course interesting and enjoyable, just by being the kind-hearted and helpful person he is. Wouldn’t recommend anywhere else to do this course. Cheers Josh.

I highly recommend the Gold Coast Training College, I recently completed a Certificate III in Security Operations, the instructors are excellent and have decades of experience, the course is filled with excellent information that’s based on real world scenarios, also the course is very detailed and includes information that you won’t find with other RTO’s, I feel totally prepared to enter the Security industry after completing the course at GCTC.

Do yourself a favour and train with them, you won’t be disappointed.

Thanks Paul and Ian
