”South Burnett Ventures recently engaged the services of RTO Consulting to assist us with the Initial Registration process to become a Registered Training Organisation. The service provided by Angela and her team was extremely professional and of a consistently high quality.

With Angela’s assistance we were able to save valuable time and resources and have become an RTO in much less time than would have otherwise been possible. I would not hesitate in recommending Angela and her staff at RTO Consulting to anybody who requires assistance with establishing an RTO or remaining compliant.”

We would highly recommend RTO Consulting to any business, small or large, who needs some guidance in a field in which you could easily and completely be swamped!”
