Forsythes Training Selected for 2 NSW Govt Training Schemes

Forsythes Training has been appointed to the Buy NSW PMS Scheme

Forsythes Training is now a prequalified supplier of training on the NSW Government Performance & Management Services Prequalification (PMS) Scheme.

Being fully prequalified makes it faster and easier for Government departments to engage Forysthes Training.

Transport for NSW has also placed us on its panel to provide TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment.


Face to Face Training Resumes

Many clients love training via ZOOM. Others prefer face to face. So, we’re resuming face to face training for public courses from July. Class numbers will be smaller, with social distancing, enhanced cleaning and other safety measures in place.

Initial face to face courses include TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment and Leadership & Management qualifications, short courses, ICAM and computer courses.

We’re also offering synchronised training so groups of workers can train together either, in a classroom or digitally, at the same time.
