Testimonials

"Have been training with Scott since Monday. Must say, his professionalism and enthusiasm he brings to a class is amazing. He's turned what is essentially a very tedious task, for someone like myself who has studied so much in so many industries, into an absolutely enjoyable experience. He pushes knowledge and information into you very quickly, but in such a way that it is enjoyable and so the information sticks. It's been an absolute pleasure having him as an educator and trainer."

Peter Gunn

"Highly recommend this training group. All the people in the Office are lovely. Rusty and Michelle are both so helpful and go out of their way to help you. Scotty is an absolute legend. He is very detailed with his teaching. He is obviously very experienced in the industry. Highly recommend to anyone trying to obtain their traffic control ticket."

Patrick Kelly

Jason is an excellent trainer who knows his trade very well.

I was pleasantly surprised by how much Jason made the course interesting, enjoyable, relevant and rewarding. Thanks mate.  "

“While I'm on the topic - our training and compliance manager praised the course you ran for us last weekend and the trainers delivery. His ability to adapt to the audience and provide the material in a way that our staff were interested was a breath of fresh air - especially for some who have sat these courses before. So, thank you! Look forward to running more courses together soon.” 9/3/22

Very happy and would love to have her deliver these courses/recommend her anytime :-)"

“We had TMI out at Burgowan on Friday 25/2/22. It was a great day, apart from the horrible weather, lol. Kathy is awesome !!!! From the get-go she had control of the room, the boys engaged, she delivered the content so well and was so patient with everyone making sure everyone was on the same page. I have spoken to a few of the boys that attended, and they said the same thing, one said that was the best course he has ever been too. Please pass on this fed back to Kathy, I did speak to her after the course and told her how good I thought it was, she is great so passionate about what she does and really knows her stuff. "

Shannon



Both of these lovely ladies have been praised by our On Call Staff Member for their patience and flexibility during difficult rostering changes: “They were both great to deal with and were very helpful and patient while I sorted the rosters out.”

"I was most impressed with the professionalism that ALL the staff at TMP that I have had contact with have displayed. I can tell you that it is a unique experience.

Massive thanks to Scotty and Michelle for getting us through our White Card and TC Course and sorting us out for our placement - everyone was more than helpful and they made it fun and interesting. Likewise, Jason and Lou were both equally as great in putting us through our TC Assessment. It was so enjoyable and they made us feel at ease the whole time. The whole team were amazing - so friendly and helpful and very quick at getting back to any questions or queries. The whole process was so straightforward with them. Definitely recommend!!

Dear Traffic family, l recently did my Traffic licences renewal at Ukskills / Kippa Ring. The training was excellent and Jason our instructor not only taught us to be good safe Traffic individuals but also how to look after ourselves and our other road users. He showed us its just not a job it's a matter of duty of care to all road users. A great instructor and a successful course. Thankyou Upskills!
