Operator Training

Simmonds & Bristow offer the following:

Simmonds & Bristow are the leading Australian Registered Training Organisation (RTO) providing specialty water industry training courses since 1991.

In the past, Simmonds & Bristow focused almost exclusively on face to face training. However, we acknowledge that our clients crave flexibility that recognises modern learning techniques as well as the unique learning style of individual employees. That’s why we’ve expanded our portfolio to address all of the above.

Delivery Methods:

Our CLASSIC face to face training remains a cornerstone of our portfolio. This is the S&B that many of you have experienced, delivered 100% face to face with your trainer. This training is ideal for groups (typically with a minimum of 6 learners). All leaners must complete a work place readiness assessment (WRA).

Our NEW! INDEPENDENT LEARNER delivery method is ideal for those of you who are content to work on your own, with high quality support from the trainer at your fingertips. This offers great value and flexibility for the right learners. Delivered via correspondence, this method is for individuals. A work readiness assessment (WRA) is still required.

The NEW! BLENDED delivery method is the happy medium between the CLASSIC and INDEPENDENT LEARNER methods. You’ll complete some (but not all) of your training face to face with your trainer and some (but not all) independently via correspondence. As always, Work Readiness Assessments are required.

We also offer a Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) program to assist those of you who have the experience but still require the official “paperwork” to back that up.

And finally, we are introducing CLASSIC PLUS a delivery method that sees you learn face to face with your trainer, with added in-class time for you to complete your assignments. (Work Readiness Assessment must follow).

We still offer the same great mix of full certification courses, individual units of competency, short courses and workshops. Now we just offer them in new and interesting ways, including the possibility of completing your work readiness assessment remotely, rather than on-site.
