What People Are Saying

Feedback from our students...

Service above and beyond! Shannon McKeller would like to recommend everyone to complete the Traffic Control course with Western College. "The course was everything I wanted, I received my SOT's quickly and also obtained employment" "Western College staff went above and beyond to help me find accommodation and provided me with all the information and support I needed". Shannon McKeller


Firstly, I am a senior citizen and I have attended about 6 lots of Tech Savvy Courses for Seniors held at Dubbo since August 2016.

Although I have a reasonable basic knowledge of computers, I found the courses very beneficial and this enabled me to experience a much wider use of the internet.  I have much more confidence in such things as Gmail; Apps; Podcasts; Facebook; Youtube; as well as buying online.  The smaller classes enabled a more comprehensive coverage of each topic.

I would definitely recommend to any senior citizen who is computer “illiterate” seeking to use computers, iPads, tablets etc. to enrol in these courses.
