Practical info

This page is for face-to-face training. If you live in Melbourne, you should choose this. It is significantly more effective. If you live outside Melbourne, see our online training instead.

Please don’t leave your appointment request too late, especially if you’re thinking about training for an urgent issue like interviews. This is particularly important if you can only attend during popular periods (lunch, late afternoon, Saturday). In the last six months, the typical waiting time to start training has been 2-12 weeks.

We understand that this sort of personalised training is a significant investment for many clients.

Part of our business philosophy is fairness. If you are funding your own training completely privately (i.e. not as a self-employed or reimbursable expense) then we don’t charge our normal business rate: you can instead enjoy the special rates below.

Book an appointment

You might have noticed that some providers want you to book online for a single appointment (or a mostly meaningless “assessment”) and take money from you before you even have an idea of what training might involve… We don’t.

A responsible educator would take the time to make sure the client understands the process, and that their training can proceed smoothly and regularly.

Please scroll down and make an enquiry to get the ball rolling. 🙂
