RTA are members of ALFA as we recognised that the Industry required a private workplace provider to deliver Certificate III in Feedlot Operations to give the client choice. RTA do not do simulated training unless at the employers request.


Our preference is to attend the workplace regularly and work beside the staff members whilst they are doing real jobs. This minimises any effect on productivity. This method also eliminates the classroom situation and helps to build a good repour.


All workers that enrol in Certificate III in Feedlot Operations with us are eligible to apply for the Zoetis medal. Our role is to support the workplaces operation & method of doing things, not to go against them. The trainers do not come to you dictating how a job should be done. They work in with your method of operation.
