what's on

Thanks to his newly acquired qualification through Karingal Training, Trevor Cantwell (pictured) is now employed by Leisure Networks as a Tour Leader, where most of his clients have a physical or intellectual disability.

Karingal Training is a highly regarded Registered Training Organisation delivering job-ready and nationally-recognised qualifications and vocational short courses.

Trevor, a community-minded man with a caring nature, made the switch from banking and finance to the growing sector of disability and aged care in 2015. Noticing the employment opportunities in such a role, Trevor chose to study a Certificate IV in Mental Health/Disability through Karingal Training, having previously volunteered for Karingal in the past.

“I’m happy that I’m in this industry, and I can say ‘thanks’ to Karingal, because I’m qualified to do it now,” said Trevor, who still keeps in contact with his fellow students. “But it wasn’t just getting qualified, it was feeling confident to know what I’m doing and they prepared me well for it.”

Trevor loved the course and looked forward to every session. He and his classmates were encouraged to speak up about their own life experiences, and the smaller groups made it possible for each individual to receive the attention they needed to excel.

Trevor was particularly complimentary of the trainers, who had the patience to allow everyone to keep up with what was required in the course.

Trevor enjoys seeing his clients having a good time as a result of the hard work he puts in, and would recommend a Karingal Training course to anyone.
