    PD Training Training Courses Reviews:

    Fantastic, Anne was amazing and worked really well with the group. She was even willing to stay back after the session had finished to discuss specific questions and situations.
    Was really pleased to see the effort put into tailoring the course for a group of St John Ambulance personnel. The use of relevant examples certainly captivated the group and enabled them to interact without trying to work out the links between what the presenter said and what they know and understand of their job and its role.

    I have been a training facilitator for many years and Annes energy and enthusiasm was inspiring and I honestly have to say, she is the best trainer I have experienced.
    Russell my "acct manager" was great, easy to work with and responsive to my needs. it was great having one contact. I also needed to call for IT support with my log on. The team there were very responsive as well. Your pricing is very competitive. We will be using PD Training again. Will talk to Russell as I may have a need for 35 students to attend a course that we may need to alter. Thank you.
    Department of Veteran Affairs
    Thank you, the small group atmosphere and personalised advice was really reassuring and I will definitely advise others to PD Training.
    Children's Protection Society
    It was fantastic to have Jessica come in and train our team. The course was highly appropriate for our support centre and I believe each individual benefited from the training provided. Jessica did a fantastic job of engaging each of the staff members and had each of them contribute to the day. She tailored the training to our specific requirements and worked on the fly where needed to get the most out of our team. Ryan has done a great job to sort through any concerns or initial reservations that I had in regards to training and helped pick the right course for our team. Overall a really great experience and I will be recommending follow up courses to my management team in future.
    A month later I'm still finding the course very beneficial, as it forced me evaluate many personal aspects of my life. As a result I have identified key goals I want to achieve, and I'm making them happen.

    The moment the trainer told us he used to have the same problem himself, was the moment I felt at ease straight away. It helped to have someone who could empathise with us. The trainer kept the momentum going, stuck to his timelines (breaks etc.) and covered the content he wanted to.

    Will recommend for any supervisor or team leader with in DHL.

    Very impressed with what I learnt from the day. Scott was awesome & I enjoyed the day so much. Helped me out in so many ways that I am really looking forward to the next session. Have already put some of the skills Scott taught me to work.

    Research and conventional wisdom both suggest that employees get about 90 days to prove themselves in a new job. Every organisation has its own version of the complex process new employees go through to learn skills, knowledge, attitudes and behaviours required to function effectively. The bottom line is, the faster the new employees feel welcome and prepared for their jobs, the faster they will be able to successfully contribute to the firm’s strategic and operational plans.
