What Our Customers Say About Us

I choose AusQ Training for the assistance with providing a refresher course for my AWTM. They were able to offer flexibility of service. I would recommend others to AusQ Training within the construction industry seeking Traffic Management training services.

Robbie Cribbin
Project Manager - Downer

We reached out to AusQ Training as it is a contract requirement for our operators to obtain this license to perform works within 3m of a road. AusQ were able to offer the training the soonest. We now have the ability to expand the number of staff we can resource to serve our contract. I would recommend AusQ to others as it is fast access to training that meets requirements.
