What are others saying?
"I recently completed my RPL Certificate IV in Bookkeeping with Intellitrain. There were many other training organisations I could have completed my course with but after researching and speaking with other training organisations Intellitrain had everything to offer and more. I had the pleasure in dealing with Samantha Mclellan who was able to set me on the right path. Samantha was not only helpful, but very professional and it was such a pleasure to have her guide me along the way. The course is fantastic for new bookkeepers and also for Senior Bookkeepers like myself wanting to gain further qualifications. Thumbs up Intellitrain as you represent the highest standards of what a training organisation is all about!"

"I have recently Completed my Recognised Prior Learning Course Certificate IV Financial Services (Bookkeeping) with Intellitrain. From the first telephone call I found staff to be extremely helpful and informative. I found the online program user friendly, easy to access and use. Due to unforseen personal problems it took me a few months to get started on the course. Samantha McLellan my Online Trainer contacted me a couple of times to see if I was having any difficulty. I was very pleased to get her emails and telephone number. Her contact helped spur me on to get started. I found the course to be both engaging and challenging. I contacted Samantha by telephone on a couple of occasions to ask specific questions and always found her extremely helpful , encouraging and she was easily able to solve my problem. I would definitely recommend Samantha and Intellitrain to other people wishing to undertake courses."
"I chose to study with Intellitrain because I found the staff so friendly and approachable. They went out of their way to accommodate my needs to help me achieve my goal of further study to improve my job prospects. Their course materials are very detailed, informative and easy to follow. My trainer is very friendly, supportive and always ready to give assistance whenever needed. The whole team seemed to be flexible and ready to help."
"I am very happy I did the courses on BAS and Payroll with Intellitrain. The BAS course is very detailed and thorough, and covers many of those areas that I knew were there but have never come across in past employment. It was very good to cover these, and the Payroll, and use MYOB again. What a week! Would you believe I have a new job? Went for an interview on Friday morning and was offered the job on Friday afternoon and agreed to commence today!"
"Thank you Sam and I would also like to say a very big ‘thank you’ for your prompt assistance whenever I needed some clarification on questions. It was greatly appreciated and I have already passed on Intellitrain contact details to other book-keepers who have questioned me on the way forward with the new legislation."
