I have used AF&S to arrange both onsite and offsite training. They have been a pleasure to deal with administratively and we have received positive feedback from staff regarding the training provided.

Steve and his team are always a reliable source of information and AF&S is our preferred fire and safety training provider. Having conducted training for our student leadership team for the past few years I would highly recommend them. They are willing to go beyond usual training requirements, and tailor their services to our unique needs.

The Australasian Fire & Safety team has provided training to our organisation for many years. The training sessions are perfect overviews of the necessary detail required for our business needs. The sessions are extremely well structured, planned and focused with the instructor also managing to enlighten us with some humour which made the session interesting and understandable. I definitely feel confident in offering their service to clients.

We have used Australasian Fire & Safety as our provider for fire warden training over the last 4 years. They have provided excellent training presenters, facilities and course content. Steve and his staff provide a great service and we will continue work with them for all our future needs would recommend them to anyone needing fire & safety training.

Australasian Fire & Safety are a very professional company and I have nothing but good things to say about them. All the staff are helpful and pleasant to deal with and always respond to queries in a very timely manner. I would recommend Australasian Fire & Safety to anyone looking to complete their training.

This was a VERY informational course which I would HIGHLY recommend to others, for home or work use

“Australasian Fire & Safety provide fire training for our new shift managers. They are very friendly and a pleasure to deal with. The sessions are well structured, informative, practical and engaging”

It was a different type of learning with the trainer. He was informative, engaging, fun and patient with trainees. The best training ever.

Informative, entertaining and well-run course. Professionally presented adult learning, with enough humour to engage participants in the very important but reasonably dry subject matter. Steve is very knowledgeable and maintains enthusiasm throughout the day. I will wear the red hat with confidence (though hopefully I never need to!).
