Course Participant Heidi

I wanted a change of careers and AST went above and beyond to find a course that suited my needs, the enrolment process was a breeze and I was supported through the process. Starting a course as an adult was very nerve racking, but the trainer I had ensured every single students needs were met and catered his teaching style to suit their needs, a very inclusive organisation and a very safe environment to be in.

Course participant Angie

I never had any problems communication with my trainer and they were always helpful and supportive! Thank you for believing in me but most importantly helping me believe in myself!
