We promised a throwback!

As part of our 20th year celebrations, we want to share the CTS story with you. 

In 2005, CTS won the South West Small Business Awards Employer of the Year award!  Our employees know that John and Karen are caring and committed employers who heavily invest in the development and success of all their workers. 

Over the years CTS has employed many talented people who have gone on to do amazing things with their lives, and t his award was great recognition of the hard work John and Karen put into making sure the team provides the quality service that CTS is known for. 

Stay up to date by liking us on Facebook, where we will continue to post some of our highlights over the years!

CTS 5-star feedback

We work hard for our students, and students who work hard for us are provided with a rewarding experience that is unrivalled by most training organisations. 

At the end of last month, we were pleasantly surprised to receive this feedback from a recently completed Certificate IV in WHS student, who has Jonathan Potter as their 5-star trainer and assessor:

Are your expectations of Combined Team Services Pty Ltd satisfied? Do you feel you have received appropriate support and advice?: Absolutely.

Do you have any further comments that may help us improve the program?:
For me the course was well structured and flexible enough to not impact my work considering my working arrangements.

What were the best aspects of the training?:
Well set out, easy to follow, and support was there when required.

Thanks for this great validation! If you are a current student and want to provide feedback about your experience with us,  you can do it here. We love reading these!

Safety and Health Reps Course

If you have recently been elected by your peers as a Safety and Health Representative, you need to learn the ropes and what this role entails. 


What better way than with CTS? We have been delivering the Safety and Health Rep 5-day training course for the last nine years and have a proven track record for providing an engaging and fun learning experience. Book new Safety Rep Training with us!


If you are already a Safety Rep and feel it's time for a refresher, you can book in as well. The SHREP Refresher course is available on the 4th & 5th December. 


What our past students say...

"It has made me want to become a champion for safety, both at home and at work."


"Everything in this course was above expectation - food, venue, trainers, class members, information and materials provided."


"If you never had any knowledge about a SHREP then this is the place to be, you become one big happy family. Thank you so much Combined Team Services." (we love this one!)

Safety for Supervisors
Jan 11 - 8.30am - 4.00pm

Are you a supervisor that isn't 100% sure how to effect your duty of care obligations?

If you want to improve the safety culture of your organisation and show your team that you care about your obligations and their safety, then this one-day course is the way to go.

Did you know that CTS delivers this course for employer groups too? Get in touch if you have a team of supervisors who need this training in 2018 or if you would like to attend our next public course.   Download the Safety for Supervisors flyer!

Deliver Presentations Short Workshop
Jan 30 - 9.00am - 11.00am

Here are a couple of presentation stats we have come across during our current and recent history in delivering presentation & training and assessment courses. We hope they give you food for thought and inspire you to learn more by attending our (very) short 2 hour power workshop:
  • 100% of audiences appreciate a presentation ending on time.
  • 57% of your presentation message comes from your non-verbal communication (it's not what you say...).
  • If you story-tell, using engaging examples and emotion, then retention increases to 65-75%.
  • 75% of people suffer from pre-presentation anxiety. This is definitely normal. 
  • Use the first 10% of your presentation to connect and build rapport with your audience. 
If you would like to learn key skills and strategies for making your best presentations, you can  book an early bird place for only $66!

Key Management Skill Set
Feb 19 & 20 - 8.30am - 4.00pm
Only $600!

Many new leaders go from the tools into leadership roles because they were... well, really good on the tools! More employers are looking at people who exhibit key leadership behaviours and not just hold a supervisor or leading hand title. 

There's a lot that goes into leading people and projects, and working with teams to get the best results.  If 2018 is the year that you want to show others exactly what you're made of, join the CTS team for two days of knuckling down on the performance goals of yourself, your teams and your tasks. 

You take away a practical guide to immediately implement all the great strategies we show you. 

Assessment for three (3) Leadership and Management units is free and completely optional.  Download flyer!

Thanks to everyone who took the time to respond to our recent survey. Unfortunately interest was not high enough for CTS to start delivering this course in 2018, but we just wanted to express our gratitude to our respondents and engaged subscribers.
