Our Training Pathways

Why use ABC Training?

ABC Training and Consulting has been operating as an RTO (#5800) in QLD for 20+ years, originally under the name of Alan Bartlett Consulting.  In 2017 a management change resulted in a change of direction and a concentration of training provision within specialised industry areas: Laboratory Operations, Pathology and Manufacturing. 

Our primary training approach revolves around blended learning, which includes practical on-the-job training encompassing hands-on demonstrations, observations, and discussions, complemented by a theoretical component delivered online or in paper format.

What distinguishes us is our exceptional ability to swiftly adapt and develop training solutions tailored to your specific requirements. Our standards surpass those of other Registered Training Organizations (RTOs) in Australia. The connections our trainers establish with our clients and students extend beyond their professional roles, often forming enduring friendships. 

We offer training from school-level education up to university and industry levels. Moreover, we maintain ongoing contact with our students even after their training has concluded, boasting an outstanding track record of successful job placements. We cater to a diverse clientele, serving both large-scale national clients and small businesses. Our partnership with Seaworld and the Queensland Academy schools further sets us apart in our field.

Results we have helped create

I can confidently say that I would not have been able to complete this certificate in the time frame if it wasn't for ABC training allowing me to complete units at my own pace and in my own time. It was extremely beneficial to be able to access the material and complete the units without time constraints or set times for study. I also would not have been able to complete this course without the help and support from my trainer, Sonja Jovanovic. Sonja has been very knowledgeable and easy to communicate with, anytime I needed help, be it through email, text, phone, or teams.

ABC Training and Consulting have delivered the Cert II Sampling and Measurement and Cert III Laboratory Skills to our students in Years 10, 11 and 12 for the past two years. The online platform has been very easy to manage and ABC staff are excellent at keeping us informed about the students’ progress. The culminating activity at Seaworld is something the students have really been looking forward to and highlights the skills and capabilities they have acquired. Our students finish with a valuable qualification which contributes to their QCE and ATAR. Highly recommend!

Thank you Sonja. It was a very difficult journey with my tendency to overthink but I’m so grateful that with your guidance I was able to finish the qualification. Your experience in pathology and as a quality assessor gave me valuable insight. Feedback from other people in the course at NSW Health Pathology is the same. They all think you’re fantastic.

ABC training provides high quality delivery of the Certificate III in Lab Skills. Everyone from the trainers, to Admin and Accounts are highly professional with effective communication to the schools. The students enjoy the balance of theory and pracs with the lab activities a particular highlight. For students entering their senior years of high school, this qualification provides our academic students scientific literacy skills, a direct pathway to University, 6 QCE points and a taste of a tertiary online learning platform. Highly recommend the program and company

I found dealing with my trainer, Adrian Van Ravels, a very easy and enjoyable experience, as he has an upbeat, enthusiastic personality. He has a wide scope of knowledge in the laboratory industry, and like myself, passionate about it. Adrian flew to our site on a regular basis. A lot of time and effort was shown by him so that he could be available to all members of staff. I would highly recommend Adrian and all the ABC staff for their professionalism whilst undertaking this course.
