“I thought the class was put together very well, and I found the content interesting and useful in my daily work. I was quite nervous starting classes again, but I felt like the workload was perfect and I was able to find a balance. Thank you!”

“I cannot thank you enough. I also wanted to thank your and the team for the assistance that you have provided me over the years, whether academic or administrative. Finally, I’d like to compliment Risktec on developing such a great production. I sincerely believe that all safety professionals as well as people who want to increase their knowledge of risk and safety management can benefit by studying either individually or collectively to gain a higher qualification.”

“I’ve done other post graduate safety quals and seen other uni’s postgrad course notes but the Risktec course is by far superior in its practicality and content.”

“Definitely all the instructors are all very interested in helping the students and are very kind & approachable. That is hugely important. I also like that I can (with some ‘translation’ to government work) immediately apply this information directly to my day to day work. The written material for the course is well organized and clear. ”

“I have really enjoyed the courses offered by Risktec, and the content I’ve learned has already helped me in my job. Although I have learned a lot through work experience, I have learned that there are so many more forms of hazard identification techniques than I ever knew.”

“Can I also take the time to thank you for all your help in the administration of this course and help you’ve provided over the last couple of years. The course has been a great benefit for me and very enjoyable. So much so that I have proposed it to a number of guys in our section, one of which is about to start the same course.”
