Training and Education

The Education You Want, The Attention You Deserve

From site based and classroom-based training, face to face facilitation, distance-learning or elearning; we offer a range of nationally recognised courses and non-accredited courses that you can easily engage at a pace that is right for you.

As a real-world RTO, our RTO courses focus on providing practical hands-on experience and require that every individual participates by providing valuable input into the training process, sharing of experience, expertise and openness to learning in an inventive and encouraging environment.

Nationally recognised training programs conducted by ASTRA Group Services are delivered under RTO #31544 by qualified Trainers and Assessors with extensive industry and sector experience.

From the training team in the office, through to your trainer, when the moment you book with ASTRA you will have the support and guidance you need. From your learner portal, you can access a wide range of training materials and online awareness-level lessons, and when you book a course you have direct access to your trainer. There is also a Facebook Study Group for additional peer to peer support and group discussion if you want it.

Testimonials

I have recently completed a risk management course through ASTRA and found the training refreshingly practical and of real value. The training methods were particularly hands on under Trevor’s experienced coaching, and gave me some valuable insight which I can now apply in my role.

Technical Services Manager, G7

Found the qual specific to our business needs. Very easy to follow and understand. The learning material and assessment was not bogged down with irrelevant paper chasing exercises and followed an easy learning pathway recognizing CoR requirements. Awesome and easy to contact assistance that tracked and supported our progress. The online portal responded really good either by computer or ph access. The usual dread of training was replaced with casual flow and at your own pace learning environment. Too easy and quite a cool experience.

Warren, Chain of Responsibility (CoR)

Recently I have completed my S1,S2 & S3 Supervisor training.
I found the course to be excellent with my trainer, in particular, to be of exceptional knowledge. The package itself is very well put together and easy enough for anyone to navigate through and complete. Thanks again for the support.

Jason, S123

I want to emphasize to quality of the course content and the professionalism of the staff at ASTRA training office.
The friendly but professional staff were very helpful and had good knowledge about the subject to gave me direction through the easy to follow questions and answers.

I can definitely recommend the course to companies looking for new ways/ideas in the maze of systems to better the skill set of their employees or just to emphasize the importance of each role player in the chain of events.
Thank you and best wishes!

Hennie, Chain of Responsibility (CoR)

Their [ASTRA] assistance in this process has secured the meeting of our objectives in the delivery of the training program to over 1500 people on site, in a large part due to the highly professional input and project management of your team leader.

Great training tools for my small business. Not your average online course, these guys went out of their way to make learning relevant and challenge me and my team.

Damien

Glenn exceeded expectations for this course. It was very well structured, flowed logically and was very engaging and informative. Glenn was able to provide many real examples throughout the course and was able to give very detailed, through and relevant assessment pieces that were applicable. I hope that Glen continues teaching courses in the future.

Program Student, Cert IV Govt Investigations

I would like to congratulate you on the very high standard of presentation at last week’s ASTRA S123 training workshop

Engineering and Services Manager, S123

Attended the two-day tower rescue course.

I have done the full course with other providers before over the years, but this company stands out as the best.
Excellent trainers and admin, equipment for use is all first-class gear and the practical training area is set up with climbing structures and absorbent rubber matting that make it much easier on the legs.

I will be back when my refresher is due.
