I needed to gain qualifications in Retail as my work told me to and I came across Gateway’s Cert 3 course. They made it so easy for me to gain qualification and my teacher was excellent in providing me all the insights and experience i needed at my work. I really appreciate all the hard work Gateway did for me to get this done. I’ve learnt a lot and built a lasting relationship with their well cultured and experienced Trainers and highly recommend them.
