      "My experience with Short Courses Australia was positive from start to finish. Online booking was easy and straight forward with plenty of options to choose from. Communication via email was prompt and easy to understand - all required info was provided well in advance of my online sessions. The trainer was professional but still engaging and interacted with his class really well. Content was delivered in an easy to understand manner - I am a secondary school teacher with 20 years experience (and actually teach this content myself to my own students) so I know what I'm talking about! Thank you overall for a really positive experience - I have no hesitation in recommending Short Courses Australia."

      "Raji was my instructor for my RSA Online Course and he was great. He is very bubbly and interactive with students over zoom which made a 4 hour lesson so much easier to get through. He also gave many examples of situations that we may encounter while serving alcohol and taught us how to dissolve when issues arise. Apart from that, Raji is also very knowledgable and did gave us many tips throughout the lesson which really helped out a lot when we have to do the assessment at the end of the 4 hours class. Overall, I feel so much more informed doing this course with Raji as the instructor and I feel that I am armed with the rights tools when serving alcohol to customers. :)"
