Pinnacle Safety and Training: Testimonials
Don’t believe us. Listen to our clients.
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.

I wanted to thank Ant for his time and enthusiasm in teaching the course. It is plain to see that he is very passionate about the content and genuinely believes that this is the best way to keep people safe in the workplace and even at home. Also, his experience gained from his previous occupations really shines through when queried about real world scenarios. I enjoyed the course, and I believe the other attendees did also. I had to leave early, and Ant went out of his way to catch up with me before flying out the next day to help me complete the course. Cannot thank him enough for that.

I thought everything was great. Easy to enrol, emails explained clearly, etc. Straun was a great trainer. Managed to teach me about HSR and legislation without putting me to sleep!
Nicholas G.Health and Safety Representative (Queensland) Brisbane, QLD
Straun was informative, amusing, helpful and an all round engaging trainer. He clearly communicated the course content and expected outcomes. I personally find it rare to enjoy classroom activities but the 5 days with Straun was definitely the exception. My normal way of thinking and looking at problems were challenged and questioned for the better, I feel more capable in my role as a HSR and look forward to putting the knowledge and strategies into practice.
Brendan J.Health and Safety Representatives Brisbane, QLD
Great trainer for the course, Lester did a great job of keeping me involved and interested which would not have been easy as I have done this course twice before. I came out of the course with a greater knowledge and understanding of what a confined space ticket allows me to do/not to do. I have been in my industry for over 10 years, so to say I learnt something new about something I do every day is great and I put that down to Lester’s training methods.
Joel M.Confined Space Entry Training Brisbane, QLD
The two guys assigned to the job could not have been more thorough and helpful. They are very experienced and know the requirements of entry to the letter of the law. Very impressed.
Matthew T.Confined Space Standby Entry Service Provision Brisbane
Course was the best Tower Rescue I have attended in many years (we refresh this training every 12 months). The reason for this weighs heavily on the trainer, Tim, and his abilities, character, and demeanour as both a trainer and assessor. I would not only recommend Tim to others but I would also request Tim be our trainer in future.
Geoff P.Tower Climbing and Rescue Brisbane, QLD
Trainer Rob was exceptional. He made the course interesting and tailored the training to our needs, ensuring we spent extra time on scenarios we cross routinely.
Josh B.Height Safety Supervisor Brisbane, QLD
Thank you Pinnacle. I thoroughly enjoyed my Confined Space Rescue and Vertical Rescue course. Kevin, our trainer, was excellent in the delivery of technical theory and practical expertise and made our time fly. Kevin is an asset to your company and I would be more than happy to recommend Pinnacle for any CS and VR potential students. Thank you again.
James K.Vertical Rescue and Confined Space Rescue Murarrie, QLD
Very knowledgable, friendly and understanding trainer. Couldn’t be better after attending many of these sessions over the last 26 years.
Ian R.Provide First Aid Gladstone, QLD
Training was excellent, the level of knowledge the trainer had about the subject was great. The practical component was very well done, it gave a real insight into how what you were learning would be used in the field. The smaller class size allowed the trainer to give each individual the time they required to gain a full understanding of the course. Having spent a substantial amount of years in the Construction/Maintenance field, it was very refreshing to participate in training that wasn’t run with the aim of simply ticking a box. The trainer showed a commitment to ensuring everyone in the class would be completely able to go out into the work site & apply what they were learning with a good grasp on the responsibilities that come along with performing the task. It was a well run course & it was an enjoyable to attend.

David is by far one of the most professional, inspiring and personable teachers I’ve ever had. Thank you for making what could’ve been a very stressful day, informative and interesting!
Lindsay B.Certificate IV in Training and Assessment (TAE40116) - Upgrade Program Melbourne, VIC
Nathan is the GUN!!! Easily the best trainer we’ve had the privilege of having on our site! His subject knowledge & experience is incredible, and he is able to make the training even more challenging and specific to our potential response situations.
Paul M.Vertical Rescue Gladstone, QLD
Daniel was fantastic. Ample time and opportunities to practice the rescue so we actually learnt the skill.
Lee P.Tower Climbing and Rescue Melbourne, VIC
Your trainer Tim provided excellent instruction and all my team said it was the best training course they had ever done. Excellent outcome, well done!
Gregory C.Provide First Aid Sydney, NSW
I believe you will struggle to improve. The whole process from booking to assessment was very professional and effective. Will definitely recommend you guys and engage in future training. Thank you.
Gilmour C.Forklift Training Gold Coast, QLD
I have undertaken Forklift and Boom tickets with Pinnacle. Both times I was lucky enough to have Brad as the trainer. He is very knowledgeable, professional, detailed and clear in his training. Thanks again Brad and the Pinnacle team. We will be sending more staff to your courses.
Josh M.Forklift Training Gold Coast, QLD
I do this every year and I’m usually bored to bits the entire time. I can honestly say Luke has made this course entertaining, I’ve learnt things that didn’t sink in before and I was engaged the entire time. Turns out the trainers are what makes these courses valuable and you have 1 in a million with you now. His teaching skills will save lives.
Mitchell W.Low Voltage Rescue and CPR Sydney, NSW
I thoroughly enjoyed the training and Raymond would have to be the best trainer and communicator I have had the pleasure of learning from. His knowledge and depth of experience is evident and astounding. Consistently throughout the course, Raymond backed up the theory component with examples of hands-on experience and interesting stories that related to the context. It was an intense five-day course, however not at any stage was it boring or mundane. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to complete this course and would highly recommend the training to other colleagues in our organisation.
Natalie W.Certificate IV in Work Health and Safety Brisbane, QLD
This was the best short-course I have completed during my 11 years in the construction industry.
James S.Elevating Work Platform (EWP) Under 11m Melbourne, VIC
Very passionate trainer and very knowledgeable on the content.
Leon W.Work Health and Safety for Supervisors and Managers Brisbane, QLD
Bob was an excellent trainer. He was personable, had a thorough understanding and working knowledge of the topics and he was able to tailor the theory to our work environment. Throughout the training he provided practical examples from his own experience, or that of others, to assist us in understanding the theory, which was very helpful. The training was extensive and has provided me with not only a greater understanding of my role, but also strategies to implement the training and knowledge of resources to assist me in the role. Thank you Bob!
Sharyn K.Health and Safety Representative Milford, QLD
Raymond was one of the most knowledgeable persons on this subject I have ever met. Will recommend him to my management for future courses.
Nathan G.Health & Safety Representative Toowoomba, QLD
I literally wouldn’t change a thing. I have done a fair few courses now and I found Jo to be the best facilitator I have had. He was very patient and he had genuine knowledge about the course. Pinnacle are very lucky to have a team member like Jo. I would gladly have him facilitate all my courses. “Knock knock, spot audit!” Hahaha gets me every time!
Raymond I.Certificate IV in Training and Assessment Brisbane, QLD
Jack was an excellent trainer with excellent knowledge across all areas of WHS. He was friendly, easy to understand and very personable. All these qualities helped me to get through the course and gain my qualification. I would highly recommend Pinnacle to my friends and work colleagues.
Rob F.Certificate IV Work Health and Safety Brisbane, QLD
Warwick presented the best LVR/CPR course I have attended in many years. Often these are dry/boring and by a trainer that lacks knowledge/experience of the subject. I’ll be recommending, and directly booking my team for this course when they are due for renewal.
Chris H.Low Voltage Rescue & CPR Brisbane, QLD
This course was really well run and the involvement from the CS Energy emergency response team was definitely increased due to the way the trainers delivered the course.
Brady M.ERT Training Callide, QLD
Really enjoyed the practical component - excellent. Great to see this being encouraged in courses like this.
George C.Confined Space Entry - 1 Day Melbourne, VIC
Loved all the practical/hands on exercises, they were very rewarding. Kevin was a great instructor, really engaged the class and related with us all, made it a fun and enjoyable day.
Sheena G.Provide First Aid Gladstone, QLD
It’s been many years since I have done this course. I really enjoyed learning how techniques have changed from what I was originally taught. Steve and Travis were very approachable and their knowledge of the subject matter was outstanding. I will be recommending this course and your company to others that are contemplating doing this training in the future.
Michael S.Road Crash Rescue Melbourne, VIC
I would like to thank you and the rest of your team for organising and contributing to what was a very successful Safety Day here at Sunstate Cement. As always we were very impressed by the professionalism of the Pinnacle team, from the first meeting you and I had at the start of the planning, through to the delivering of the demonstrations on the day. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed each session. The information and activities were very relevant to our business, and the demonstrations were delivered in a way that was easily understood by all. I had some really positive feedback from everyone.
Daniel V.Facilitated On-Site 'Safety Day' Brisbane, QLD
Overall an excellent experience. From the organisation and professionalism shown by Courtney in the office, to the training given by Jay - who is by far the best trainer I’ve ever been taught by. Very cost-effective and time-efficient training. Congratulations on your organisation, Pinnacle!
Bede.Confined Space Entry Training Melbourne, VIC
Ashley was supportive of the team needs, he catered for all training levels and encouraged learning throughout the course by taking us all aside individually and running through whatever we needed extra help with or reminding on. We had a really informative and enjoyable 2 days.
Rachel H.Fire Team Operations Training Callide, QLD
The Tower Rescue training was great! I enjoyed every minute! Our trainer Gordon was friendly, helpful with a wealth of knowledge and experience. I also liked the simulated rescue scenarios complete with mock blood! These scenes made me, and the other students really think about what an emergency rescue might involve and steps needed to perform an effective and efficient rescue. Thinking of getting into Rope Access! Highly recommended!
Jai D.Tower Climbing and Rescue Training Melbourne, VIC
Good to see a company and instructor not just a tick and flick motto. I had done this course through another company a while ago and was nowhere near this standard.
Rhys C.Confined Space Entry Training Brisbane, QLD
I enjoyed the training which added to my skillset. James was an awesome trainer, he made everything clear, relevant and fun. A great experience! Thanks.
Luke W.Vertical Rescue and Confined Space Rescue
Very good course delivered by a very good and experienced trainer, Geoff, who adapted well to the varying needs of the group.
Oliver K.Road Crash Rescue Training Brisbane
The feedback from the guys was that the training was great. Very informative and was enjoyed by all.
Warwick A.Work Safely at Heights Meadowbrook, QLD
Kevin was a great instructor and has ensured that if further instruction is required Pinnacle is the only place I will go.
Michael T.Vertical Rescue and Confined Space Rescue Forest Lake, QLD
Trainer James was very good and very meticulous in the way he did things. I felt very safe and by the end I felt confident in my ability.
Mikael C.Tower Climbing and Rescue Brisbane, QLD
I’ve completed this course quite a number of times and found Tim to be very knowledgeable in his examples and experiences. Made the theory component very interesting.
Melanie K.Provide First Aid Sydney, NSW
Raymond was a very engaging trainer, extremely across the topic and an all round great bloke. The course and facility was of a high quality but Raymond definitely made it stand out as the best course I have done. I would highly recommend Pinnacle to anyone as a result and will make sure that my company considers Pinnacle first for any future training.
