"New Job Opportunities..."

I just completed a Diploma of Work, Health & Safety with Outsource Institute. I was extremely happy with the level of service and training they provided to me. I was nervous about starting a training course as I have not studied in a long time, however they provided me with all the support I needed and were always available to help. Completing my Diploma has opened new job opportunities and I am looking at doing more training with Outsource in the future. Jay Wilson Diploma of Work Health and Safety
Slide During my traineeship I worked in the Manufacturing and Engineering team at Royal Wolf as a Mechanical Designer where it was my responsibility to turn concept designs from the customer into a reality by modelling them in SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD (computer-aided design) software. I wanted to do a traineeship working in engineering and design and it was this that led me to Outsource Institute of Technology. A contributing factor was also the fact that it reduces the time of my university degree as some of the courses I undertook at Outsource Institute count as credit towards my current bachelor’s degree. Both my Diploma and Advanced Diploma in Engineering assisted with my bachelor’s degree before I had even started it, whilst also giving me that extra edge for future employment as I will have completed these qualifications on top of my bachelor’s degree. I would definitely recommend Outsource Institute as a training provider in mechanical engineering as these qualifications are valuable assets toward my future.

"...Giving Me That Extra Edge..."

Slide Super stoked to have had Outsource Institute as my training provider! They were supportive and encouraging when things got tough and personal circumstances almost saw me throw it all in. But now I’m done, and I am very grateful!

"Supportive and Encouraging..."

Slide I would like to thank both Outsource Institute and Migas for their role in providing the training necessary to enable Patrick McDonald to complete his Cert III Engineering Certificate. Outsource Institute was able to provide the training material required for Patrick to complete his course, off site by correspondence, with little or no fuss and provide the necessary support framework to assist him with any queries or issues he may have had. This was done in a professional and supportive environment. The course allowed Patrick to carry out his studies mostly within work hours when time allowed or in his own time if required. The time provided to complete given tasks was adequate and agreed upon before being undertaken, allowing Patrick the time required to produce high standard of work. Cardno has been impressed with the course and level of support provided by Outsource and as a result are able to offer Patrick full time employment on the completion of his course....

"High standard ..."

Slide Sharps Heavy Equipment Repairs and Outsource institute were first in contact in 2017 when we were looking at ensuring our workforce were trained in nationally accredited qualifications for Higher Engineering Trade Skills in welding and hydraulics. The initial round of training, conducted by Neil Bennet (trainer) both consolidated and further developed skills of new and existing employees to perform more effectively; enhancing multiple skills sets, whilst advancing the organisation- enabling Sharps Heavy Equipment Repairs to cultivate a secure and qualified workforce. 
Outsource Institute commenced our relationship by conducting a Training Needs Analysis from which the training solutions were then customised to best suit our company.

"Enhancing Multiple Skills Sets"

Slide Bosch Rexroth first sought out a training provider in 2013 when we wanted to stabilise our workforce by providing staff with nationally recognised qualifications in advanced engineering and Outsource Institute presented themselves as an RTO who could provide flexible workforce training. The flexible and customised training offered by Outsource Institute has minimised downtime for both us as the employer and our staff whilst still providing continuous access to training resources. We at Bosch Rexroth fully support Outsource Institute in their ability to deliver training in a flexible and professional manner.
