Profiles and Testimonials

“I had worked in administration roles many years ago, but felt I needed to update my skills and knowledge of the latest software and terminology, particularly for the health sector.
I found The Gordon training was relevant and gave me access to employment opportunities. I particularly enjoyed the small class size and establishing rapport with teachers and classmates.
The course certainly helped me gain employment, particularly the knowledge I gained in the medical units. I am now employed as a Customer Service Officer at University Hospital Geelong, and find it rewarding to help others as part of a team.”
