Business management student

“I chose to do the school-based traineeship as it is an amazing opportunity, it is one you don’t really get often. I have gotten a lot out of the traineeship, gained a lot of connections, support within the police force and even office staff. I still talk to my colleagues even now that I’ve finished, we still have a good chat.”

Maluda, Cert III Business, Victoria Police Portland

Business management employer

“In my position as Co-ordinator of Facilities Management with HRCC I am more than satisfied with the training Certificate IV in Business (BSB40215) and Certificate IV in Leadership and Management (BSB42015) with Skillinvest Training. The benefit of onsite training is that the trainer connects with the student and the student learns current skills which are essential to our workplace.

The trainer can also assist in the practical technical skills sets that meet today’s industry standards. Skillinvest offers a flexible training arrangement to allow for both the productivity of the Trainee and the requirements of a variable work schedule, therefore this makes it an excellent choice.”
