Having had an employee complete a Certificate III in Engineering – Fabrication Trade, we were very happy with the services provided by Rodney Day. The fact that the assessments were made on the job means that we didn’t have an experienced employee sitting in a classroom for days at a time. Over the course of the certificate, we found Rodney to be friendly and efficient, and he communicated all expectations and deliverables very clearly. Rodney also worked together with our employee to ensure deadlines were met etc.
Workplace delivered training, by an experienced tradesman was ideal for our employee who was a skilled labourer and had plenty of on the job experience under his belt. Overall, the service provided by Rodney was seamless and we’d have no hesitation in using him for future on the job training and assessments.

Training staff is part of building a good business culture, and here at Arrow Farmquip when we needed someone to train our fabricators we contracted Rodney Day for the task. We were very pleased with the whole way this was conducted and the result was great. Rodney was prepared to work with our staff and within our time frame which helped our business plans. Rodney also assists you to see if any relevant Government funding is available, which is a plus.

Rod’s delivery of the Cert II Welding course to the supported employees and Transition to Work participants at Acacia Park Enterprises was very impressive. The course was pitched at a level that was easy to understand as well as informative. Any learning barriers that the students experienced were met by Rod’s professionalism and experience towards achieving positive outcomes. The practical hands on approach proved successful with many outstanding projects created such as a BBQ, rocket stove and trailer. I would highly recommend this course to others.

“Rod would take time out equally to help everyone he could. He would explain what to so we could all understand. I learnt a lot about using a welder and grinder”.  Shaun Evans

“I enjoyed learning how to do welds and make cool stuff like dice, fire pokers and frames. Rod was a really good teacher and helped me to learn new skills”.  Ashley Menzies

“I thought Rod was really good at teaching us the course especially how to use the grinder. I can now help my dad to weld gates”.  Chris Schmutter

"We heard about Rod from word of mouth and asked him to quote for the design and partial construction of a rear addition to our house. From the outset, we found Rod to be very friendly, knowledgeable and professional. His ability to work  strategically and efficiently from consultation, design and construction perspectives meant that we were very thankful that we had his assistance on this job. Due to his skills and professional, friendly nature we have since had him do follow up work for us and have no hesitation in suggesting Rod to friends for any similar work. Love your work Rod!

"During the few years I have known Rod I've had the priviledge of observing the construction of his large family home unfold. Being such an impressive achievement I was 100% confident in Rod's ability to build an attractive deck for my home.

It's always easy communicating with Rod and he makes sure he's creating exactly what you've asked for. Rod has an extensive knowledge of the building trade, the latest products etc. and offered many useful suggestions. Rod went out of his way to source the highest quality materials and I was really grateful for his overall attention to detail.

I couldn't be happier with the end result. Thanks Heaps Rod.

Looking Forward to Future Projects!
