In regards to the recent training/assessment ( Excavator/Skid steer) completed by staff of Industry Training Qld must be congratulated. With the feedback Susan and myself have received from the participants have been full of praise for the way the course was conduced by Col Freeman.The theory was put across so as the boys with numeracy/literacy problems fully understood what was required of them to pass. In regard to the practical assessment where (4) Excavators were utilised in different positions eg. Benching/Trenching and under supervision by Col at all times. Also if he (Col) believed the person needed more time on a particular machine, then an extra day was allocated to ensue the  issuing of Certificate of Attainment was valid. So to all the staff who was involved with the running of this course must be congratulated.

I recently travelled from Toowoomba to Townsville to complete four courses at Industry Training Queensland. The company, trainers and staff exceeded all my expectations. I consider it well worth the trip to complete training at ITQ, as at the time I was able to complete the courses for a fraction of what it would have cost had I completed them locally. Should I wish to do more courses in future I will have no hesitation in travelling again to Townsville to complete them at Industry Training Queensland.


I have recently completed two tickets with ITQ and found their training to be practical and professional. Their equipment is well maintained and they have a good training facility. I am not a very experienced operator but the trainers where attentive to me and had a lot of patience. I would highly recommend ITQ to anyone contemplating attaining machinery tickets or refreshing skills they already have.


Recently Jill completed her Cert IV TAE40110 and had this to say…

Dear Fred,

Thank you kindly for integrating me into your class so well.  I enjoyed the instruction, content and the atmosphere you create in the classroom very much and feel I gained a lot from the course!

Malcolm Thompson

As the manager of Hammar Service, I run a business that has a need for training.  For the past 7 years I have used Industry Training Queensland for all of our training needs.

Industry Training I feel is a leader in their industry.  I have found this company and its directors to run a very well organised and well presented team.  They have always been professional in both the way they run their business and their training alike.

I would have no hesitation in recommending industry Training as a reputable training organisation.

Sue Sharpe

I have always used Industry training  to obtain the necessary tickets that I have needed in my work career  & have always found them to be an excellent training provider.  I have received nothing but professionalism in my dealings with them & their staff  are always friendly & helpful.

Their training courses are always specific & relevant to the needs of students wanting to obtain their qualifications. Their trainers facilitate in a way that allows attendees to interact while learning the necessary skills & knowledge .Their courses are delivered in a style & pace that is suited to individuals & the group as a whole.

I have found Industry training very encouraging towards me as a woman when taking on some of the machinery tickets & obtaining my HR licence. Their trainers always gave me the confidence & the belief in myself that I could achieve a successful outcome & encouraged me to keep striving ahead if ever I began to doubt myself & my ability. Never once have I felt that I was treated any different & that is a reflection on the attitude of the trainers & their acceptance of woman in these roles

I have attended over 7 courses with Industry training & have obtained the relevant machinery tickets & the knowledge to operate these machines which is so important when looking for a training provider. I cannot express enough my recommendation to use Industry Training .  I did &  I will be forever grateful to them for sharing their skills with me.

Alan Strong

I would highly recommend Industry Training Qld to anyone to do TAE40110 Trainer/Assessor Course. I found the trainer’s knowledge and methods to be very good. I also learnt a lot more computer skills as a side product of this course.

Adam Walters

I confirm that Industry Training QLD has been very helpful in giving me the training I needed to complete my forklift & heavy rigid license. The staff has been great & helpful with the information I have received throughout the training .

I enjoyed the staff as well as the atmosphere   & the great range of tickets offered is out standing! I will defiantly  be recommending to others  & be back myself again  for further skills to benefit me in the future.

Aba Fikri

I completed the 3 ticket machinery deal that ITQ have going. My trainers were Marshall (Bunge) and Lachlan and I felt very comfortable as a first timer on real life machinery. I had the best time one on one training and hands on with all 3 machines (Excavator, Skidsteer and Front end Loader).

The staff could not have made this course any more beneficial than it was.

Jason Albion

I, Jason Albion have undergone heavy vehicle training with ITQ to obtain my HC licence.

Garry has been my trainer throughout this experience and I have found him to be an excellent trainer in this field. All of my bad habits were corrected and his 27 years of experience helped me achieve my goal promptly.

I strongly recommend ITQ for any form of training and the staff are professional and eager to teach correct techniques to help advance further career options.

Thanks ITQ and especially Garry.

William Kinnear

After working at a career for 19 years I decided on a change.  I approached ITQ to gain tickets for skid steer, excavator and forklift to help me gain employment.

The expertise and knowledge of the trainers is outstanding and the practical training is real life work, none of this dig a hole fill a hole.  They (ITQ) actually have you complete real tasking.

ITQ also offered, that if I require more experience prior to an interview, I only have to give them a call and they will (free of charge) get me out on the machine.

I will recommend ITQ to all my friends and I will approach them in the future for any more tickets that I will require.

Mal Price

I recently attended a cert IV trainer assessor course at  Industry Training QLD

I found their staff to be very friendly and helpful from the time I booked the course to completion.

Special mention must be made of Fred Marnock who delivered the course.

Fred’s experience as a trainer/ assessor really showed he was able to read the class mood and individual requirements and adjust the delivery of the course to suit

This was very refreshing to me and made learning much easier than past courses I have attended at other institutions.

Great stuff I will be back

Thank you Industry Training QLDs and thank you Fred Marnock
