Engaging HSR 1 Training

2 days ago

The training centred in on the core points of the material without getting too bogged down. Peter did a great job as a facilitator getting everyone to contribute and get engaged.

Peter set his training a mark ahead of the mundane by finding real world examples to illustrate his points and relating the material to the specific interests of the participants.

Also… you can’t complain getting your choice of food off the Christies Beach Hotel menu.

HSR Level 1 – What a great way to learn

2 days ago

I’d like to thank and commend Peter for making the 5 day training such an enjoyable experience.

Not only does Peter bring his vast knowledge from many industried into the classroom, he also did a great job encouraged each student to get involved. The group dynamic he fosters works really well to keep everyone engaged – Highly recommended for the HSR Level 1, I’ll be making sure to return to Peter for any future HSR training requirements.

The catering and the venue were amazing.

Peter delivers his training in an engaging and enthusiastic way. He relates the training back to your individual workplace. His level of knowledge and experience is vast, having worked across many industries. Catering was top notch, who doesn’t love a pub lunch!

A Great way to learn

1 week ago

3 good days of learning. Peter created a safe and confidential learning environment where everyone is encouraged to contribute and share. Peter involved everyone which is a great change from other classes which are driven by Power Points. Up to date and relevant information and a very experienced facilitator. Peter is easy going and easy to get along with


Most engaging HSR Training Course

4 months ago

This course is well structured, covers all the necessary material to meet legislation/standards. Peter is very engaging, practical, experienced and keeps us actively involved during the session with recent case studies- had no troubles with staying awake. Definitely not death-by-powerpoint and not overly focusing on irrelevant material, made sure to be based on the most recent legislation and evidence base (even included the psychosocial issues).
