How to enrol

Liz Asser

Qualify and be acknowledged for your experience within the workplace

I had been working within the health sector for 20 years before I committed to completing my Certificate IV in Mental Health. Currently a trainer with the Salvation Army, I knew the next step for me was to formalise my experience and training by completing the course with my fellow employees. Despite all my years of experience within the field, I was both amazed and humbled by my experience at TAFE Gold Coast. The highly qualified and empathetic nature of my teachers made me better understand how I can manage my clients in a more effective manner.
