HITsa Out and About
HITsa Partners with Tauondi College
Since 2021, HITsa has been working in partnership with Tauondi college to deliver Certificate III in Business to students, as part of their traineeships within a variety of Government offices.
Darrin A is about to complete his last unit in the qualification Certificate III Business BSB30120 after 18 months of study. He has been a star student; always presenting eager to participate and engage in his classes.
Here is a brief reflection from Darrin about his experience at HITsa as he looks towards completing his qualification:
“My name is Darrin, I am an older aboriginal man that decided to make a change in life. I was driving a forklift in a factory doing 12 hour night shifts. I was lucky enough to find employment with the Department of Child protection as a BSO 2, on sign up with the department I started my Certificate 3 in Business course with HITSa at Tauondi college. The whole process from day one has been very enjoyable. The course has been presented very professionally and easy to follow. HITsa staff have been outstanding and helpful and the Tauondi staff have been my rock throughout the whole process. I would certainly recommend taking the trainee step and getting accredited, it’s made so easy why wouldn’t you?”
HITsa Delivers Training in the Riverland
In the Riverland, HITsa has delivered training to Nippy’s employees over the last 24 months at their Moorook location.
Student Shaun is about to complete his Certificate IV in Leadership and Management. Shaun is in management and has kept up with study even through their peak season.
Here is what he has to say about his training experience:
“I have enjoyed the class times. It has given me a broader learning of what it is like in leadership and I have used my knowledge gained through the sessions within our company.
Only downfalls I can pinpoint would be the first few sessions. We seemed to be cramming heaps of info in to such a short amount of time, and the homework aspects seem to take up more time than some people have to spare.
Mark has been a great help with encouraging class members to be involved”.
HITsa’s RTO coordinator Terry looks after a number of students for a lengthy time whilst they train with HITsa.
Terry finds it a real privilege to sign off the students last unit and provide them with their qualification certificate.
Your time is your reward!
