Thoroughly enjoyed completing my cert 3 and 4 in disability with AST, and am now working in a very rewarding career.

Course Participant Joanne

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!

Completed Cert IV in Disability with AST online, trainers were extremely helpful and the online portal was easy to navigate. Would highly recommend AST.
