"The in depth training really helped me open up to just how important it is. Fantastic course. Thanks so much." - M. Wicken, National Roof Care, ACT
"I think its wonderful that certification/licensing is being introduced to the insulation industry, one of Australia's smallest industries despite it being by far one of the highest paying. Maybe now the government will finally listen to us certified experts about their abysmal construction standards!!! Everyone getting certified now are essentially this industry's pioneers, and I'm proud to support the advancement of our industry's future by becoming certified/licensed in my trade. I think this course is a massive step in the right direction and helps to shed light on the endless opportunities for self-starters we insulation bosses are all desperate to dump work onto. I think certification will finally attract younger workers that until now have had no reason to consider insulation as a viable profession. This course is a great starting point for anyone wanting certification in a trade guaranteed to earn you top dollar. Nobody in this trade earns less than six figures, and it all starts with this course." - J.York, York Insulation, NSW
