Hi Mark, It was really great to catch up with you and the team at AITC again. Even though I didn't pursue the trade career, my time at AITC will always have played a major part in my life. Without the inspiration and guidance from the team, students and especially Richard P I have no idea how my life would be now. Thankfully I got the kick into gear and motivation I needed to get fit, continue my education and strive for bigger and better things from my experience at AITC. It almost seemed like fate how at a time...

I love the atmosphere of the Redlands campus! The staff and students here are very friendly and the vibe is wonderful. So much so, that although we live in Redcliffe, I want my son to come here for the IQ program

Parent, 2017

A HUGE thankyou to you and your team for a wonderful evening last night.I can't begin to tell you how impressed with both the set-up and the staff Deborah and I both were. However, as I stated when we spoke, Deborah and I being impressed isn't enough, our son needs to like it and commit to it if we are to get a result. Our son doesn't talk about school much, it simply isn't a lot of fun for him as sadly is the case with a lot of students today. He simply didn't shut up about the place on the way...
