    I would just like to say a thank you for all your positive feedback and advice on my submissions while completing this Diploma course. I can honestly say that I have enjoyed the whole process at Pinnacle and the way the course is set up, it actually makes the learner feel like they are a part of a real workplace i.e. the “ABC Corp”. Every scenario has been realistic with challenging but very relevant assignments. All in all I would not hesitate to recommend Pinnacle to anybody who wants to complete WHS qualifications.
