"TAFE Queensland SkillsTech works with Ariel Corporation to deliver consistently high-quality training for its Australian and Asia-Pacific customers. In fact it's the only place where Ariel Corporation trains its customers on its equipment outside the USA. The scale and scope of TAFE Queensland SkillsTech's technical capability and training infrastructure is impressive, dependable and unparalleled globally - there's simply nothing like it anywhere outside the United States of America.
No other training organisation in Australia comes close to matching the quality and consistency of TAFE Queensland SkillsTech's training solutions, both for industry and for individuals seeking to upskill and add value to their existing trade qualifications."
