New independent report reveals strong student satisfaction for Pinnacle Safety and Training

Most of the students Pinnacle trained in 2017 were satisfied with their training and would recommend Pinnacle to others. This was the finding of the National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER) 2018 study on student outcomes, which was released last month.

The National Student Outcomes Survey is Australia’s largest survey of vocational education and training (VET) students and provides information on employment outcomes, training satisfaction, and the benefits and relevance of training.

Pinnacle Safety and Training CEO, Paul Botwright said he was delighted with Pinnacle’s results from the survey.

“I was thrilled to see that of the 360 Pinnacle students surveyed, 94% were satisfied with their training and 95% would recommend Pinnacle to others,” Paul said.

“In addition to this, 65% of Pinnacle students surveyed believe they had improved their employment status after completing their training with us.”

“This is significantly higher than the national average of 46% and validates the efforts we exert every day to ensure our courses are industry-relevant.”

“At Pinnacle we employ Australia’s best trainers, we build our training facilities to mimic real worksites and we employ teaching methodologies that maximise the educational opportunities and employment outcomes for all students that partake in our programs.”

“These NCVER results are a good measure of an RTO’s commitment to their students and in Pinnacle’s case, the report reinforces the feedback we receive every day from our customers.”

“NCVER’s annual survey will open again in May this year and I strongly encourage any students who completed training with us in 2018 that are invited to participate in the study to provide their feedback.”

“Your responses help shape our courses and assist other students to make better decisions about their training,” Paul said.

Raymond the trainer spoke very clearly (important) and was obviously very knowledgeable about confined space. He highlighted practical applications and really got the “personal safety” message across to the group. I have done these courses before, however I got more out of this due to the “SKILL” of the trainer to get the critical messages across.

The practical exercises were helpful in executing all the theory we had learnt during the morning session. Having three practical exercises is a good strategy as I was able to gain something from each one confined space entry (mistakes I made plus observing others under a little pressure).

A good one-day course which I would recommend.
