Testimonials

Please say a huge thank you to the trainer currently working with Peter through his course. I have noticed a continued and steady improvement in Peter’s confidence, happiness and general engagement in his life. I worked with Peter for months before he engaged in a course where he always showed little to no interest.
I spoke to Peter today and he mentioned how much he liked the staff at Aurora, the new facilities and his trainer – he loves going to class!
 
I wanted to thank you all at Aurora for your support of Peter, from our side of things, I can see substantial movements towards employment and improvement in Peter’s life, which I genuinely put down to engaging in the course at Aurora.

I completed my Double Diploma of Business, Leadership and Management with Aurora Training Institute in 2017. The process of completing my diploma was difficult however with the Trainers help I was able to complete it within the set timeframes and to the best of my ability.

Janneke Pignolet was an amazing and well-spoken trainer, she was clear and concise and made sure I understood what we were talking about. She made sure that I got the help I needed and always said if I had any questions that I could email, text or call her. There was always time for catch up sessions and she was determined in helping me.

My experience with Aurora Training Institute was really amazing and definitely something I would do again.

I would like to take this opportunity to share with you the great work Nicole Williams is doing with our young people at the YCLC through the Certificate II in Kitchen Operations.

As you promised, Nicole is a highly trained and effective trainer/teacher. More importantly she has developed a great rapport with our young people, which has resulted in some outstanding outcomes. The last two theory sessions have seen our young people achieve some great learning outcomes, including a greater capacity to consistently apply themselves to the task. Last Thursday’s practical lesson was a great celebration of teamwork and collaboration. They prepared a shared lunch for our Deputy Director of Education and our school supervisor.

Nicole’s success is due to her commitment and ability to work effectively with our staff. Dave, Julian and myself find her a pleasure to work with and our young people display considerable respect for Nicole.

If at any time I can recommend Aurora to other schools, I will with great enthusiasm!

Thank you for inviting me to attend your opening on Friday night. As always, each & every one of the Aurora staff were warm & welcoming, not to mention the tasty food so lovingly prepared with service by your exceptional trainees.

I had a great time catching up with other industry representatives too. Aurora Training Institute is a great choice for training and I will always feel confident in recommending you.

Thank you for all the support with training and inspiring me to achieve my goals.

Both my trainers Claudia and Janneke were wonderful, not only their knowledge of the hospitality industry, but their life experiences have been so inspirational to me. Doing a diploma has been a great achievement for me, I couldn’t have asked for anyone better than my trainer allocated to me!

Aurora Training Institute has been the best thing for me, they have amazing staff, they have helped me excel in life and given me the help that I needed. My trainer Jenny Neale is one of the most amazing women I have ever met, she has helped me so much and now I have succeeded in something that I never thought I would.

Aurora training institute has been amazing I couldn’t thank them enough. And to top it off I got a job four days after I finished my placement. Thank you, Aurora Training Institute, and a huge thank you to Ian and Jenny for all your help you guys are amazing people!

I have been down in the Hospitality rooms today as the students set up for the RGS running this morning. I have to tell you that the buzz down there is electric when they talk about yesterday’s class. The students have said to me that it was one of the best classes they had taken. Their trainer, Sara Charleson was very entertaining. The class was so much fun that they were sad when it was over. She explained everything so well it was easy to learn. The teachers also commented on how engaged the kids all were!

I was most fortunate to undertake my Cert III in Telecommunications Technology at the Aurora Training Institute. The trainer taking the course can only be described as one of the best teachers I have come across. I have a tertiary education, and at my age in the 50s, have attended many courses, lectures & training sessions in my life. Kevin Dickinson is exceptional. Kevin speaks well, but also has a special ability to clarify and teach.

Kevin Dickinson has is the ability to impart knowledge onto his students without difficulty. Kevin knows this industry inside out and can fluently explain the principles and theories of Telecommunications in a way of certainty.

Each Component of the course was covered comprehensibly. As most of the Students had businesses or jobs in the industry, making every session was difficult. Kevin would help students to complete and get through any missed Components.

My original intention for enrolling into this course was just to get my Cert III in Telecommunications Technology. Thanks to Kevin Dickinson’s diligence and patience, I got a whole lot more from this course. I walked away from this course with a substantial increase in knowledge. I have been in the industry for 15 years already but have had a major confidence increase from this course.

If anybody was considering a Telecommunications Course I would recommend trying to enrol into one of Kevin Dickinson’s Classes at Aurora Training Institute.

Director, Tuned In Cabling Solutions

We work with this amazing, fantastic crew here in Toowoomba. What they do for people and the way they help them through hospitality and business courses is very commendable. We have four of their students with us currently doing their placement. Emma, Katie, Jesse and Tylor are just amazing kids and their efforts are superior.

In order to come into a chef’s kitchen without prior experience and be able to put into practice all they have learned in their classroom means that they are dedicated learners and the teachers have been extremely thorough in their delivery and dedicated to their students.

These kids haven’t just come in here with an attitude of ‘getting their placement done’ they have come in here with top class knowledge, respect and pride for themselves and those around them. Their work ethics and commitment is something I haven’t seen in a long time.
Thank you! You’re Awesome!

What a wonderful night Friday night was!

Thank you to all the Aurora staff in attendance for making myself and everyone I had discussions with feel extremely welcome to your new offices at Robina. The offices seemed well equipped, ergonomically and functionally, from what I saw on my escorted tour, and should be wonderful to work in. The food was scrumptious and delicious and the vegetarian menu on offer made me personally feel that I was “not the odd one out”. I adored the ganache petit fours, cake and fruit kebab as did Belle from Miami High School and Preston Campbell. I loved the Aurora Training Institute chef uniforms. Once again, many thanks for the fabulous night and I am so glad I am a client of Aurora Training Institute.

Thanks to Aurora Training Institute for offering the opportunity to complete the triple Diploma of Business, Diploma of Management and Diploma of Human Resource Management. Aurora’s recognition of prior learning (RPL) assessor, Catherine Halford, was brilliant in supporting me in the process of submitting a portfolio of work evidence.

I wish to pass on to you my congratulations and gratitude to all of your staff who I have had the pleasure of working with for over 12 months now. Their professionalism in public relations, administrative organisation and training is wonderful and I have no hesitation in recommending your organisation to any employer contemplating training for school based or other opportunities. I look forward to continuing to work with the Aurora Team!

Rachel Skrabanich

Industry Liaison Officer, Merrimac State High School

Aurora Training Institute is my favourite training provider. This is due to the fact that I know of their quality standards and high reputation having heard word of mouth from other students who have studied through them and were utterly pleased with the entire process.

I would definitely choose Aurora’s services over anyone else’s.
