I had an amazing experience with Toowoomba Centre. The trainer was very knowledgeable and explained everything in great... detail. Covid measures were put into place and there was nothing to worry about. I highly recommend doing First Aid and CPR Courses here. Great Prices, flexible times to choose from, and very professional. And I received my certificate same day. I'll be definitely going back to them.read more

I'm very pleased with this RTO. The online question component only took an hour and a half to complete due to already... attained knowledge and common sense. Having done the theory work online and at home allowed for 100% engagement on the day of training. The location was comfortable and had plenty of room. Practical training was excellent! No fussing about just plenty of hands on practice supported by a knowledgeable trainer. Rod was exceptional at communicating clearly information and having a paramedic background really helped in nailing what is expected in a real-life 1st Aid situation. His teaching was engaging, humourous, encouraging and probably most importantly, memorable. Like many others, I've done a number of 1st Aid & CPR courses and I must say this was the the best I've done.read more

I made a booking for my CPR workshop, and the e-learning component was NOT sent through to me (and it wasn’t in my... spam). It is a 5-6 hour round trip for me to get to Toowoomba, so you can imagine how I felt when I was refused participation to the workshop (which was paid in full). I phoned immediately and was told that I could come back another time for an additional $22. The cost of time and fuel, not to mention a day off work is significant for people in more remote areas, something that this company appears happy to disregard. I was refused a refund, which sadly was not a surprise. I am not throwing good money after bad, so I have contacted a more reputable company who assure me that they would never refuse admission to a workshop that has been booked and paid for. In future I will have my yearly training with them.read more
