Hear what some of our current students of the Indigenous Health Centred Diploma of Leadership and Management and recent graduates of the Certificate III in Pathology Collection had to say about their experiences with Health Industry Training.
The first retreat was full of practical activities, thought provoking, with things to research. The facilitator, Leigh Bennett, has excellent communication, is highly knowledgeable, gave us real world examples, was thoughtful and encouraging.
Elwyn Henaway – Student (Indigenous-Centred Diploma of Leadership and Management)
I was reluctant to start this training as I have never worked in management or had a leadership position. By Leigh’s guidance and help, I have the confidence to continue with this course and pursue a management and leadership position.
Veronica Bayles – Student (Indigenous-Centred Diploma of Leadership and Management)
I loved studying with Health Industry Training. My trainer was supportive and knowledgeable, gave me confidence in myself to complete the course, and skills I thought I’d never have.
Felicia S. – Student (Cert. III in Pathology Collection)
It had been a long time since I had completed any study, so I was nervous about how I would go. From the start, the trainers were helpful and willing to go beyond the norm to help me finish the course. The course, I found well structured and informative. Thanks for making the experience of returning to study an interesting and easy experience!
– Student (Cert. III in Pathology Collection)
I have thoroughly enjoyed the whole journey. From studying, assignments and placement. The placement was fantastic. I had an excellent supervisor at SNP Bray Park (Louise). The whole process from January to now has been a success for me. Thanks so much to Health Industry Training, and especially to Fiona, for her excellent training and for pushing me to believe I could do this.
Vanda Trotter – Student (Cert. III in Pathology Collection)
I’ve just graduated from my Cert. III in Pathology Collection with Health Industry Training. I had a wonderful experience, and I learned a lot. I really enjoyed the practical aspect, where they had all the equipment that we needed for our training, before we went on to placement. I’d highly recommend it to anybody.
Jessica Jones – Student (Cert. III in Pathology Collection)
I almost didn’t go for the course because I thought I was too old. I’ve just turned 60. But clearly, I wasn’t. I really enjoyed the course, and the teacher was fantastic. I don’t know that I would have completed it without Fiona’s input. The study, I found a little hard to start but, once I got into it, I really enjoyed it. I’ve learned more than I thought I would. Apart from the medical studies, I’ve learned a lot more about people and diversity. I made a lot of new friends, and now I’m looking for a position in hospital phlebotomy or theatre sterilisation of equipment.
Edith Luker – Student (Cert. III in Pathology Collection)
I’ve just completed my Cert. III in Pathology Collection. It is my career goal to become a pathology collector, and to progress in that industry. The trainers have been excellent. Fiona is detail oriented and very proactive. She spent a lot of quality time with her students. Yes, the course has been challenging, but the reward is having that qualification at the end, which is worth all of the effort that goes into it. HIT give follow up after the course as well, helping with interview techniques, resumes and cover letters. It’s good to know you’ve got that support after. Thanks Health Industry Training, I really enjoyed doing my course, and I’m really grateful for having this qualification towards my career goal.
