I had been working in the same industry for 20 years. I was bored, frustrated and not going anywhere. I wanted a job that was challenging, personally fulfilling and rewarding, to be in a career where I was helping others. I enrolled with ATEC's Certificate III in Aged Care and it was the best thing I could have done. ATEC turned out to be a very professional organisation with highly skilled and experienced trainers. The training was very extensive and in depth, but also a lot of fun as everyone there was highly motivated to become a Carer. We got to use a lot of equipment that is being used in Homes and the Community as well as being taught manual handling techniques and emphasis put on personal care. The most important thing I gained out the training was confidence in myself, patience, empathy and that I could change careers and follow my dreams.

While completing the Certificate II in Construction course at ATEC's Lonsdale campus, I began applying for entry level positions as a diamond drilling offsider. Within two weeks I was offered a job in Western Australia on a 2:1 FIFO roster in an incredible work environment with amazing pay. Out of the 14 applicants I was the only one hired and I never would have landed my dream job without the Certificate II in Construction and support ATEC provided.

"ATEC. It's a life change thing."

TAPS had an idea and took it to Adelaide Training and Employment Centre (ATEC). They were fantastic, they took the idea and helped develop a program.

ATEC showed professionalism and excellent training methods throughout the program. The students were engaged for the whole period. They commenced two weeks work experience and we now have 11 fantastic apprentices who love what they do. They are skilled and have the licences and tickets required ensuring they are safe at work and valuable to their host employers.

The staff and services were fantastic. My trainer went above and beyond. The practical room was great for the hands on experience. The support with work placement is great too.
