Barry Stanford – Certificate III in Individual Support

What seemed to make GeSS standout here was that they organise the actual placement training for me, it is not left to me to find it. Without this placement I would not complete the course, The fact its arranged for me, was a plus.

Glenn Getty – Certificate III in Individual Support

I looked at several educational programs that provide this type of training and chose GeSS for several reasons. First, the campus is located in Southport and close to my home. Second, the campus has up to date classrooms conducive to learning. Thirdly, up to date new equipment in the lab to learn how to safely move patients.
