For More Info!!

We appreciate what our volunteers do for our community and want to offer an opportunity to gain accredited training to assist with their volunteer roles.

The Cert III in Business course is run in a classroom setting, no homework, nothing online, and in a friendly, supportive, and FUN environment.  The trainer is Lynn Arnold, from Lynn Arnold Training and Support.  Lynn has over 40 years’ experience in admin, and has trained for over 10 years of that.  Assessments are completed in class, together, allowing participants to share their experiences with others.  A Certificate III in Business is not about running a business, it is all about working in a business environment.  Click here to see what training modules this covers.

With no cost, optional professional resume photos, guest speakers, local volunteering overview and a graduation celebration, we really want you to succeed and enjoy the training.  Lynn will also create a professional resume and cover letter for participants, and we’ll discuss current workplace expectations and interview techniques, Word documents and Excel.

Training times are flexible and will be weekly classes will be scheduled at a time that best suits the majority of the group – daytime, evening or weekends – to suit school-aged families, full-time workers or retirees.

To find out more about the training click here.     As training is funded by the Queensland Government, there are eligibility criteria.  If you would like to find out if you are eligible before the night please contact Lynn on 0416 234 011 or email
