Overall Experience Was Excellent
This is a valuable course for anyone working at a school as an LSO and should be recognised as such by Principals looking to professionally develop their staff. The overall experience was excellent.
Thanks Paul for being so professional.

I found EduTrain Australia to be a great company offering Certificate IV in Education Support. The facilitator Paul Deegan was fantastic and very professional at all times. I would recommend EduTrain Australia to anyone and would consider doing more courses with EduTrain.
An Invaluable Asset To My Role As An LSO
The course was an invaluable asset to my role as an LSO at St Paul’s. the subject content was diverse and contemporary and the ability to apply this information to practical work experience assisted my relationship with teacher and student. Paul’s teaching style was articulate and engaging providing plenty of opportunity for our group to debate and discuss a variety of educational issues confronting educators at present and into the future.
Really informative and applicable to my daily work
It was a very good course, really informative and applicable to my daily work. It helped me think critically about things. The trainer was excellent, well informed and he combined theory and examples from the field and extracted the valid points from the different contributions from the group.
I enjoyed the training thoroughly and learned different strategies to use for my students at work. Thank you so much !!
I Am Now Inspired To Re-Think The Way I Plan And Present My Work
The Certificate IV Education Support Course conducted by ETA was excellent. I recommend this course to any educator interested in furthering their learning in the education support field. The course was really informative and applicable to the current support work I am involved in. I have personally gained a lot of extra knowledge from the content of the course and I am now inspired to re-think the way I plan and present my work as an LSO.
I liked the way the course was structured and I found the presenter Paul Deegan very professional, friendly and fun. Paul had lots of energy and enthusiasm and presented the course in a very effective and interesting manner. He also had a great sense of humour.
I wish to thank ETA for a wonderful learning experience.

Obtaining a Certificate 4 (Education Support) through EduTrain Australia has allowed me to evaluate and improve my work practises, enhancing every aspect of my job. I found the content of the course to be relevant and invaluable to our students’ learning. I looked forward to each class and felt supported 100% of the way.

A Fantastic Way To Upskill
The course was a fantastic way to upskill. The trainer Paul Deegan was fantastic and was always available to answer any questions or concerns, as well as being supportive and helpful. Paul made the experience less daunting and actually fun for an older student. So thank you – you made learning fun.
Highly Recommend EduTrain Australia
I have just completed my Certificate IV in Education Support and found all sessions to be very informative and beneficial for my role as a Learning Support Officer. Paul made the sessions interesting, fun and educational and the hours went by in a flash.
Highly recommend EduTrain Australia
I Now Have A Great Resource For Future Reference
The Certificate IV in Education Support Certificate has not only given me a Nationally Recognised Qualification, I have gained a depth of knowledge and competencies in many areas, which is relevant to my position as a Learning Support Officer.
The content of the course has given me a wide range of knowledge and confidence in many areas including; an awareness of cultural diversities, how to facilitate LD students in oral language, literacy, mathematics and behaviour management of students.
I Highly Recommend This Course
I have worked as a Learning Support Officer for 13 years and have plenty of experience working with children. However, participating in this course has been an invaluable experience for me as it has enhanced my education and broadened my knowledge in specific areas that I previously was not confident in. For example, I was encouraged to reflect on areas that I felt needed improvement, my knowledge of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders was broadened and my skills regarding behaviour management have improved. The course was delivered by Paul Deegan who was both engaging and understanding. I highly recommend this course and would encourage anyone working in this field to enrol.
Paul Was A Great Presenter
Before the course began, I was a little apprehensive about what the expectations would be but after the first session, I had a clearer idea. Paul was a great presenter who gave us a wealth of knowledge and practical ideas to use in the classroom. I really enjoyed the course and found it interesting and applicable to what I do with my students at my school. I definitely have more confidence now working with a variety of students who have different needs.
The Opportunity To Work With Fellow LSO’s Was An Added Bonus
A thoroughly enjoyable course and opportunity provided by EduTrain Australia. I am a more confident and knowledgeable Learning Support Officer (LSO) due to the great training I was provided. The opportunity to work with fellow LSO’s was an added bonus. I always looked forward to each session.
I Was Quite Nervous Going Back To Study…
I had a positive experience completing the Certificate IV in Education Support. I was quite nervous going back to study and did not know how I would balance out family and work responsibilities. Our trainer Paul Deegan was always very helpful, encouraging and understanding. I also appreciated the catch-up sessions.
I Highly Recommend EduTrain Australia
I highly recommend EduTrain Australia to those considering completing the Certificate IV in Education Support. The course content provides students with the necessary skills and knowledge required for a career in Education Support. Paul’s delivery of the course is professional and engaging.
Positive, Professional And Eye Opening
My experience with Edutrain Australia was positive, professional and eye opening as my skills were updated through intense training amongst other Learning Support Officers. Our trainer Paul Deegan encouraged us to value our LSO position through 21st Century Learning and self development.
I Have Learnt A Lot From Completing My Assessments
I found the course really interesting and I have learnt a lot from completing my assessments. It has made me more aware of my role as a Learning Support Officer and what is required in my role.

I found this course manageable in my role as a Learning Support Officer
EduTrain Australia managed to fit a large amount of content into our sessions. They always offered support and I found this course manageable in my role as a Learning Support Officer.
A Positive, Interesting, Thought Provoking and Supported Course
Thankyou for providing us with such a positive, interesting, thought provoking and supported course. The way the course is presented is perfect for working people and fitted in well with working as an LSO and running a home/family. The amount of work was suitable for the course and the content was extremely relevant to our job and gave us new and interesting ways to work with the students in our care. Paul was great at not just ‘telling/teaching ‘us but ‘involving and challenging’ us. He encouraged us to give answers we believed in or thought were appropriate, rather than standing and ‘lecturing’. Enjoyable and rewarding experience – Thanks Heaps!
This Course Has Made Great Change To My Work
I have often reflected on the great change that this course has made to my work. I have a greater understanding of the possibilities for supporting students and a much stronger self belief in the role that I can play in advocating on behalf of these students to ensure that their needs are met and not discounted as behavioural problems.
