New: Virtual computer applications tutorial service

Do your staff have specific questions or issues to resolve with desktop applications such as Word, Excel, Project or Powerpoint but don’t need to attend an entire training course?

Our accredited computer training guru Wayne Robinson is available for online sessions – for one or two hours. Or get several staff members organised for a cost-effective half day session.


More government training subsidies on offer

Post COVID, you need to skill staff for a new way of working. But not everyone has the budget in this current climate. As a Smart and Skilled provider Forsythes Training can obtain government subsidies for a range of training. There are other subsidy programs available at the moment including for partial qualifications and for workers aged over 45. Talk to us about options to make your training budget go further.

Certificate IV in Training and Assessment TAE40116 – So many ways to train

Our Certificate IV in Training and Assessment TAE40116 courses are proving popular. And there are many ways to complete this training – face to face or completely online via Zoom – with weekday or Saturday courses. Public courses are on in Newcastle and Sydney.

We also offer customised skill sets in training and assessment for corporate clients. Synchronised training means groups of workers can train together either, in a classroom or digitally, at the same time.
