Testimonials

"RIST courses are really interesting and there's so much variety, so you can explore areas that you are interested in and receive credit for your VCE too. I really enjoyed the personal help on offer from the RIST trainers and their guidance and advice throughout my studies. The skills I learnt were also practical, so it made it easy to get a good job on a farm even when I hadn't grown up on one myself."
Liam Allen - Certificate III student
