Need Flexible Delivery?

Don't worry. A Plus Training Solutions still offers flexible (group or individual) training delivery at times and locations to meet your needs.

For client convenience and to maximise training relevance it is preferred, where possible, to train on site at the clients' premises.

We will perform training in Perth, regional WA and interstate. Click on the link to see our Site Course Details. Email or phone for more details.

We understand that not all our clients will have appropriate training facilities on site so where this is the case, we can arrange alternate, suitable training venues and/or assessment sites.
