Many of the school zones on the Sunshine Coast are well signed and have flashing lights. School drop-offs and pick-ups: The no parking signs are there for a reason, usually to prevent peopl...
Unfortunately, a number of training providers are letting students down through the delivery of short courses and not actually teaching content that participants completing the course need to know. Thankfully, a number of these organisations are being shut down by the government regulator and we welcome this because we have a commitment to delivering quality training where participants learn the right skills. We believe that the knowledge and skills we impart on participants in our courses w...

The day started off with some phone a friend questions and answers revising the online pre-course component of the course. It was then straight into the p...
