BSB20112 Certificate II in Business

Did you know you can employ a full time secondary school student on a part time basis and have them participate in a traineeship at the same time?

I have done most of my training courses with Nationwide Training, I always found the training material up to date and trainers are just excellent, not only but they are always ready to extend their help in scheduling the training sessions and help with difficult questions.
