I recently completed my Cert IV building and construction course.

Realistic training options were genuinely invested in helping me work through each module of the course by being proactive in communicating with me to arrange suitable times to meet on either the job site, at home or at their office.

The fortnightly Saturday morning office classes was also beneficial for me as it was hard staying focused by studying from home at times.

They are not looking to sign you up then forget about you. 5 out of 5!

Dear Steve, Ron & Justin

Thank You

I just wanted to express my deep appreciation for the assistance that I have received from you all as I obtained my Cert IV and now with the Diploma of Construction and in advance as I endeavour to do the Advanced Diploma in Building & Construction.

Steve, I really appreciated your guidance and assistance with the Cert IV process especially in regards to the collating of all the information you required. The way that you generously gave me your time during the meetings we had to go over the information and the fact that what you said you were going to do, you did, was refreshing to say the least.

The process following the completion of the Cert IV which enabled me to obtain my QBCC Builder License (which I have been able to use on a number of volunteer building Projects already😊) and then transitioning to the Diploma in Construction was made so simple and affordable and has highlighted the wisdom of continuing my training with Realistic.

Justin, thank you also for your assistance both with myself but more than that, with Michael and his training as a carpentry apprentice. Your kindness on the day we met with you and the way you dignified Michael with the questions you needed to ask as well as the speedy way you processed his application, just awesome mate!

The lengths you went to along with your efforts to help Michael, were truly remarkable and genuinely appreciated by both myself and Michael. You and Realistic have given this fine young man an opportunity to have a trade, this is the sort of thing that changes lives😊

Ron, thank you so much for your ongoing assistance during the process of Michael and my training.

For us to have the privilege of being trained by someone with your background and level of experience, for the help you give to be based not on book knowledge but REAL hands on experience makes ALL the difference. The way you kindly explain things, never making anyone feel like a fool but rather dignifying the one asking the question along with your regular email reminders, provision of resources and materials to facilitate the smooth processing of our training, is deeply appreciated.

I really enjoy coming to the classroom for training, it’s a little haven away from the crazy world and ever ringing phone. To be able to sit quietly and work my way through modules, ask questions and listen to you explaining things to others is incredible helpful and something I look forward to each time I’m booked in to come to the class room.

Thank you for all your help and thank you in advance for the help I will rely on as I work through the Advanced Diploma course.

Gentlemen, thank you all😊 I highly recommend anyone who needs training in the fields of my endeavour that you provide should definitely consider doing such training with Realistic! My personal experience is that they won’t be disappointed.

We have transferred all our apprentices to Realistic Training Options.

They are training our painters well and are great at following up and getting their apprenticeships completed.


We came to Realistic Training Options, after being disappointed with other agency’s.

We have found them to be understanding to the needs of small businesses. 

My contact Kyle, is always responsive by call or text. This has made it easy for our company to get our guys trained when we can fit it in.

I would highly recommend them to other small/medium businesses looking to get their crews skills updated.

Steve was amazing he helped me get my qualification by RPL.

I was living between Sydney and Brisbane for over 6 years, I had a chance meeting on site with Steve and he guided me in the process for an RPL to be undertaken.

I am now living in Sydney and earning big dollars. Thanks Steve!

I was lost for ideas, working as a labourer for all types of trades until I met Steve and his team. After completing an RPL and trade test I am now a qualified tradesmen in Australia.

Thanks Steve you changed my life!
