We have used CELA several times for our customised needs. We always find staff so attentive and flexible. Nothing is too much for them. The knowledge of the trainers is second to none, they come from the sector and understand our needs, thank you!Virginia, North Ryde. In house Customised session

  • Our inservice training solutions are relevant to all levels of experience and qualification.
  • We are flexible to your needs and can deliver learning and development through a combination of face-to-face, webinars and mentorship.
  • Our team work across Australia, wherever the need is identified, be it in Marrickville, Byron Bay, Dubbo, Darwin, Oodnadatta, Charleville or Adelaide. If you don’t see what you need on our calendar, just ask and we will design a program specifically for your service.
