  • Bruce Kirkby, CBRE Pty Ltd, Building Maintenance Manager

    Previous to completing this course the highest level of education I had received were trade related qualifications. So I was concerned that I might not be able to complete this course. While doing this Diploma you encouraged me to reach for the stars and that anything was possible. My role at work has now changed from a Maintenance Officer to Maintenance Manager. This has been something I have been working towards for the last 10 years and now it has finally happened thanks to you.

  • Sophie Jayne Hussey, Mad About Plants, Head Propagator

    I just wanted to tell you again, what a wonderful help you were throughout my course. Out of everyone in the class I thought I would definitely struggle especially because I was so new to computers. I now believe that I have the ability to become an outstanding manager, a respectable leader and even a lucrative small business owner. You have encouraged me and shown me that I have the potential and confidence in myself to achieve my dreams.

  • Bruce Reidy-Crofts, Shann Australia WA, Customer Service Manager

    I really enjoyed the course, and I thought Christine Barrett (the presenter) was terrific, and I intend to add to my qualifications with more study in 2014 through Upskilled.

  • Tessa Cooney, Subiaco Private Hospital, Admin Manager

    Thanks for being such a fantastic teacher- I have actually surprised myself how much I have taken from this course an used it in my work!

  • Luke Marai, Austral Precast, Production Supervisor

    Once again thankyou for your upbeat style of training was very enjoyable and gained a lot from it, will definitely look into further training so who knows we might cross paths again.

  • Marilyn Howson, Aged Care Standards and Accreditation Agency LTD, Group Leader

    Your feedback is just so motivating that I always feel I could move mountains afterwards. I really appreciate you taking the time to give the feedback as I know you have a multitude of students to supervise. If there were more educators like you around, then I am sure mature-age students wouldn't find formal study so confronting.

  • Michael Austin, Buildex, Branch Supervisor

    I have been in management roles for over 14 years and decided to do this diploma course to gain a certificate to acknowledge my management skills. This course became a valuable motivational tool of information and inspiration to refresh my ideas and inputs for my management role within my organisation. The benefits of rejuvenating my current skills with implementing new ideas and strategies I have achieved from this course has given me a new drive and direction to excel in management. Don Sampaklis training interaction skills to get our class involved with their opinions and work experiences in the classroom environment was priceless. You do not obtain that input of knowledge with just doing a course on-line. Don really had a passion and pride in teaching us in management and sharing his past experiences and I would recommend anyone to join one of his classes or courses, you will definitely find it beneficial.

  • Nycole Lorraway, Hotondo Homes Yeppoon, Operations Manager

    Don Sampaklis was an inspirational lecturer who recognised each and everyone’s strengths and inspired them to become very confident in individual achievements.

  • Lisa George, St Andrew's Anglican College, Human Resources Manager

    I have completed two Diploma courses with Upskilled, one delivered in class and the other online, both methods were great and suited my circumstances at the time. The trainers at Upskilled are excellent and have real world/industry experience, I found this knowledge to be invaluable during the courses. I also use Upskilled in my role as HR Manager for staff development at St Andrew’s and would recommend them to other organisations.

  • Amy Ayob, Oncall Energy Solutions, Office Manager

    Rod is very knowledgeable, he always has an answer to any of my questions he is very friendly and very supportive.
