    Advanced Facilitation Skills Training Course Reviews:

    "I know I put a lot of 10's for the trainer. Shane really was remarkable."

    Envista Pty Ltd


    "Would like to commend Jo for his professionalism and for the quality of his teaching and experience, I felt there were one or two more opportunities for him to use a facilitation approach over a teaching approach but overall a good mixture of the two styles with lots of real life tangible examples and demonstrations. Would have been great for me to have one more go at practicing facilitation myself so that I could have a chance to immediately put in place the corrective feedback I was given, because learning by doing is my preferred style. Overall loved the balance of theory and relevance to my own work. I can already see how I will put in place what I have learnt and feel equipped with a huge toolkit of advanced techniques. Would and will certainly recommend this to colleagues and peers. Please feel free to use any of my comments as testimonials."

    "A very enjoyable course, Eric (Trainer) was knowledgeable, engaging and clearly had a passion for the subject material. Would recommend to others."

    - Infrastructure Finance and Advisory, ACT Government


    "It was a very personalised training and I very much appreciated James' experiences in his previous work life which gave real life examples to the training. The training expanded on my previous facilitation experiences but also gave me new skills and insights into reading people which is what I really wanted. I will recommend PDTraining to my colleagues when others are seeking similar training especially if James is facilitating!"

    "I thought Josh was excellent at demonstrating engaging and dynamic facilitation...overall, it was very engaging and the Inspire-Educate-Experience-Debrief model was great."

    - RDNS

    "Joseph was a brilliant trainer and made a big effort to structure the training around our requirements. First time that I've experienced true tailoring of a program to my needs."

    - Individual Course Participant


    The training was well facilitated. The trainer was successful in gaining a lot of responses from the participants to create the relevant information. A lot of pair, group work and interaction was there.

    - Department of Education

    "Highly targeted (and therefore valuable) training given that there were only two delegates - Josh managed superbly to balance our individual requirements."

    - Parks Victoria


    "It was an absolute pleasure meeting and being inspired by Josh. I have already recommended this course to other staff and told them to request Josh as the trainer. Thanks."

    - Parliament of Victoria - Information Technology Unit


    "Overall, the course was fantastic. Derick was a fantastic facilitator/trainer and the small class size (4 including the trainer) allowed for much in-depth discussion of issues and sharing of experiences. A couple more opportunities to practice what we had learnt would have been good, but the opportunity to have the in-depth discussions was so very valuable. Derick was great at getting us to reflect on our own practices in teaching the course components and to prompt us to discuss our reflections. Thanks!"

    - Individual Course Participant


    "Louise had a very warm and welcoming style that connected us all and created an open and engaging learning environment. The course was very enjoyable and provided opportunities to learn from other participants in addition to Louise.
