I have to say honestly the G2 and G3 training that I received with ASTRA have been the most valuable in this role... I directly applied the skills I learned from these courses to set this system up in the Underground Ventilation Department and Management have been so pleased that they are rolling it out over Technical Services in the Open Pit and Underground encompassing a workforce of over 6000 people, 2500 of them in the underground alone. In terms of career enriching courses, the G3 and G2 have to rate as the top courses I have done. 

I’d like to thank ASTRA for the excellent facilitation and delivery of these courses.
