Our Safety Training Courses
Minerva Consulting Group offer both ONLINE and FACE-TO-FACE Training to allow you to choose the delivery option best for your organisation.

Minerva Consulting Group has been running safety training for over twenty years. 

 

We have conducted hundreds of safety training courses.  Minerva's Safety Professionals deliver training programs to a wide range of clients across a number of industries.  We can deliver the standard training courses such as manual handling and hazardous chemicals, and we can run training tailored to your organisation's needs.  All our trainers hold a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment and have years of experience in the safety field.

Minerva's courses are designed for optimal learning, catering for 10 participants per session, to allow for individual learner differences and to ensure participants receive the best learning experience possible.  Our training courses cater to participants from all levels of study and take into account language and literacy barriers.

With the COVID-19 Pandemic changing the way organisations work we are running delivering courses in different ways to best meet your organisational needs.  We provide face-to-face training on your site, or we can provide the best of both worlds - a face-to-face trainer delivering courses via MS Teams or Zoom. Clients have embraced this online training format as it allows for flexibility, with participants not required to travel for face-to-face training sessions on site, but still getting the benefit of an experienced trainer facilitating the learning experience.

Minerva can adapt and tailor our standard training sessions for your organisation.  We can also develop and deliver custom training to meet the exact needs of your workers.
