Good Afternoon Michael,
I hope you are having a wonderful Friday.
I am very pleased to say that I have completed all assessments.
I am aware that I was only required to complete the 15 units, but found it such an interesting and comprehensive learning experience.
I was pleased that it is a self paced learning course because as you know I am currently in South America and wished to partake in it while overseas. It has been fantastic to be able to access it over the worldwide web. I am scheduled to arrive back in Australia soon and look forward to applying the extra skills that I have learnt by doing this course to on the job practices.
I have spoken to a few of the Inspector's and they are hoping to continue there training further with your company. Thank you so much for assisting with this training. I can see that your extensive experience and knowledge has helped us all become better investigators.
Mike things are good, been cruising along, - it was interesting reading the news sections on the site, I generally don’t get time to browse about like I did today.
Picked up the Comcare contract for Tas for the third time in a row –which is good.
Just a quick email to confirm that I have received my Cert IV qualification certificates for the above.
Thanks heaps for sending these through so quickly and for the training that we completed. I would have to say that this was one of the best training programmes that I have ever done and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
All the best for the future.
