This course was great for me, I've been a stay at home mum for 12 years and was so nervous about getting out and getting job ready. I have built up so much confidence I never had and I had a feel of what it would be like to work and I loved it. Great course overall.

The training provided was informative and emphasised real-world experiences. The trainer (Suzi) was friendly and approachable, whilst also maintaining a professional environment that ensures a focus of learning. Given the current health crisis, the NRA has done an excellent job in pivoting towards an online-only approach.

One thing I really enjoyed about this course was my amazing teacher Suzi! She made the course a lot less stressful and easier to understand. Suzi is an angel, she pushed us to succeed, she is very good at her job and I am so lucky and honoured to have her by my side throughout the whole process. I have learnt a lot in this course, I feel confident in myself and I am looking forward to jumping straight into the retail industry. I strongly recommend anyone that is looking into starting this course, to definitely give it a go. I am 100% glad that I decided to do this course, and I feel more confident jumping into work. Thank you Suzi and everyone else for this amazing journey and opportunity.

I loved every bit of the retail course with both trainers. They were great at ensuring all of their students were on task and weren't struggling at all! And if we were in need of a deeper explanation, or a different way, they did just that! I found my experience amazing and pleasant, and I was actually quite sad it has finished because it was so enjoyable!
Certificate III in Retail - Hailie A.B.
I thoroughly enjoyed my time training with Suzi and the TTW team. They were all very welcoming and were so helpful throughout the duration of the course. Everyone was included and we all got along really well. If I were to study with the TTW team again, I hope I would get Suzi as my teacher.

Highly recommend the NRA for studying/completing a certificate. The trainers were very nice, helpful, and provided students with as much help as they could give us. The certificate work was hard but not incredibly difficult, the questions were easy to understand and the website is easy to figure out. I highly recommend this course and this company as I enjoyed learning and felt very welcomed and assisted during my studies.

The trainers were fantastic! Always wanted to teach and were always polite and understanding of others. The course had a strict timetable that the trainers followed excellently. I would highly recommend doing this course if you have not worked in retail before as it provides essential skills and experiences that will help you thrive in any retail career.
