Velg Training is Australia's leading provider of Vocational Education and Training (VET) professional development and consulting services.
The absolute highlight of the overall conference for me was the replacement motivational speaker Paul de Gelder. Wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The most worthwhile professional development I have been to in a long time.
There was a lot of great, up to date information. I can say it was absolutely worth it!
Well organised and presented with great resources and information.
It was a fantastic event which was extremely well organised and ran. well done. I attend a lot of other industry events and conferences and this was much better.
A tremendous opportunity for VET practitioners to listen to current thinking on a range of important VET matters and to connect with a raft of fellow participants across the 2 days. It was a great event!
The networking was very valuable and if you were a person new to VET this would be a great place to start your PD journey.
The trainer provided good facilitation skills and content. He had a welcoming approach to the training sessions and handled some tough questions well.
Trainer, resources and information as of a high standard, I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the workshop.
Well structured and easy to follow - opportunity to expand on existing knowledge.
The best explanation of RPL I have heard to date. Thank you.
Being in far north Queensland being able to access a webinar was fantastic for me – no travel!!
The content…..it’s invaluable!
Training via webinar was great! Very interactive and convenient living in a rural area it was easy.
This is a brilliant media for me as I have trouble getting away from the office, but can easily lock myself away for an hour.
"A BIG thank you!"
I was audited by ASQA, and the information I received at the workshop paid off... this may not have been the case without the workshop so THANKS!
Velg Training can be depended upon to have up to the minute currency with the content of their presentations.
Thank you to Michelle & Team at Velg Training for keeping me fully informed with current and future information to perform my role at our RTO.
"Up to date"
Clear and very relevant sessions. I know exactly what is required of me now to get our organisation totally up to date.
"Wealth of Knowledge"
I have been a member of VELG for a few years now and have attended several PD workshops both in Brisbane and Sydney. I think you guys are so inspiring with the wealth of knowledge you are able to share.
As a new RTO we found the information and assistance provided during the internal audit to be invaluable.
Very refreshing to find a company with an exceptional attitude towards their clients that is geared round achieving the best possible outcome.
The event gave varied opportunities to have many different exposures to many providers under the one roof as well as engaging in very relevant topics from the providers.
The conference app was absolutely fantastic. It was my first Velg Training and I really enjoyed the app. Providing feedback on sessions was a breeze. I provided much richer data than I normally have time to do. The ability to create my own schedule was also a winner. Well done for that part of the conference experience.
I am always highly impressed with the wonderful customer service and support we enjoy from the Velg Team.
Just wanted to congratulate you on this initiative! Thanks again for providing this support to members…..this makes us want to keep being members!
Mitch Cleary was excellent. Confidence in her ability and knowledge of topic
Great networking Relevant to industry and all people present Informative and interactive
Comprehensive coverage of a most important issue.
Mitch was very engaging & honest. Used her words carefully and didn't present unrealistic expectations.
