Completed Cert 3 Individual Support and First Aid through equinox earlier this year.
Now working in the industry.
Had a great trainer, lots of support on placement and good facilities 🙂
I did my cert 3 in individual support through equinox training. I Had a great experience with equinox. Highly recommended. My trainer was so helpful.
Zac is a professional, patient and extremely knowledgeable trainer. The support I was provided as a student returning to study after a long time, was invaluable.
Class face to face learning is in... a relaxed, but focused environment Manual handling equipment is provided on site to learn and become familiar with.
The entire team at Equinox are supportive, and demonstrate a true desire to help the students succeed.read more
Couldn’t recommend Equinox Training more. Such a helpful and friendly team. The best experience I have ever had with any educators. They go above and beyond to make sure you finish your course... feeling confident in every single element. Thank you!read more
I could not fault a thing about my experience so far in my cert III in individual support, Zach is by far the most amazing trainer, I came into this course worried I wouldn’t get the help I... didn’t but Zach has been there every step of the way, providing support and even staying back to offer assistance to myself and other students struggling, he always puts so much effort to ensure we are learning and understanding everything correctly. Thanks so much for the best trainer! 🙏🏻🙏🏻read more
Could not rate Equinox highly enough. Highly recommend using them for a well supported and professional learning environment, with amazing and kind trainers! Best education experience🙌🏼
The best training centre by far they have changed my skills 🙏
They cancelled my course in 10 months “at their discretion” and did not give me the 12 months you are entitled to, with so much gong on, I did not see emails sent and they contacted me while I... was driving long distance on the highway which I then forgot to return their call. Don’t study with them if your life is too busy already, there is no empathy here.read more
Have only just commenced my course, but have found Zac to be a excellent instructor with years experience in the area I am studying. Thank you
I completed my first aid course today with Zac Hitchcock as the trainer and it was very enjoyable and informative. I liked all aspects of the course and it was very well conducted. I am considering... doing it at Equinox once again when the CPR is due to be renewed.read more
