I would like to express my appreciation for your help with gaining certification for our RTO in a short period of time.
Your professionalism and dedicated support of our business and myself has been outstanding. Your support and actual presence during the audit was no doubt instrumental in our passing the ASQA audit without any issues”
Andreas Klieber, CEO
I want to say a big thank you for all the work you assisted us with. We got through our audit with FULL COMPLIANCE so we’re pretty excited. Ours was the first full compliance at the time of audit for 3 years, so our auditor told us. We were really pleased!
Sue Crocker, CEO
On behalf of NMS and Acoustar I wish to note our grateful appreciation of all your work in assisting us to gain registration as an RTO. We could not have done it without your help. We especially liked your willingness to help with questions and advice.
Bob Thorne, Principal

We would not hesitate to recommend Richard and look forward to conducting future business with TBS Consulting.
James Crilly, CEO
We would highly recommend Richard Turner and TBS Consulting to anyone embarking on their RTO journey as a sound investment for both your business and your sanity.
Lisa Liu, Director
Eastpoint Security Training Academy
Through Richards assistance and guidance my RTO was found to be 100% compliant at audits conducted in 2009 and 2014. Richards eye for detail and expert advice is a distinct advantage to any RTO considering using his services.
Geoff McEvoy, CEO
Richard was able to walk us through the entire process from beginning to end and even found time to sit with us during our initial audit to answer any questions we were not ready for. We look forward to a strong relationship with TBS Consulting into the future.”
Gaven Ferguson, CEO
Advanced Trade Training Centre
Having spent some considerable time reviewing the process we should adopt to achieve out RTO status we decided that the process was sufficiently complex to require expert advice. Mr Richard Turner of TBS Consulting was recommended to us and after comparing him with other consultants he was subsequently appointed as our advisor. This was the best thing that we could have done.
In the course of achieving our RTO status it quickly became evident that we didn’t even know what we didn’t know and that we would have wasted our time and money if we had tried to achieve RTO status by ourselves. Given that we had many years working in the VET sector we were surprised at the gaps in our knowledge.
Richard was professional in his advice and while we expected to do the work his oversight gave us confidence that what we were doing would meet the auditor’s standards. We will continue to use Richard to provide advice and oversight as we expand our scope of programs.
We have no hesitation in recommending Richard to anyone wishing to achieve RTO status at all levels. I am happy expand on this letter if anyone wishes to contact me.
Alan Brown, CEO
Richard of TBS Consulting at all times displayed an unwavering attention to detail, and awareness of current issues relevant to the registration of my business as a Training Organisation. Knowing what I do now, an attempt to achieve registration without Richard’s assistance would have been an inefficient use of my time (and therefore money!), and in all probability unsuccessful. Apart from Richard’s professional approach regarding the complexities of the registration process, his customer focus and continued liaison prior to the audit was outstanding.
Robert Dawson, CEO
DIY Training Services
Our first decision was whether to use a consulting firm like TBS Consulting or not – this should never have been a question – just a question of which one. We were extremely lucky to find Richard Turner and TBS Consulting. With a wealth of experience, practical solutions, real material to work with, our choice of RTO consultant quickly proved to be the right one. Richard’s direct, no nonsense approach with conservative direction ensured we passed our registration audit on the first attempt. This saves time and will have you trading sooner. As a small start-up RTO we have no hesitation in recommending Richard and TBS Consulting to other start up RTOs.
Bevan Blacklock, CEO
CQ Pro Pest
Browsing around the net, I found TBS consulting. You made everything look a little easier and helped to minimize expenditure. You helped to add considerably more professionalism to our little operation and were very patient with our limited knowledge of the process. I would like to thank you for your dedication and passion to ensure that we were able to reach our goal. I believe that the training industry as a whole will continue to improve as long as there are people such as yourself who are willing to share your expertise and passion with those that are still in a major learning phase.Thanks for all your help Richard, you’re a bloody legend.
Bruce Dekker, CEO
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your professionalism during the past 9 months en-route to our successful RTO registration.
Without your expert assistance this extremely onerous undertaking would have been impossible. Your constant support and flexibility around our ever-changing schedules was invaluable and we certainly appreciated your willingness to meet frequently, often at reasonably short notice. Your immediate responses to our email queries also saved our sanity on occasions, and your presence on the day of the audit instilled a level of confidence which no doubt contributed to our success.
I would have no hesitation in recommending you to any business seeking to achieve RTO registration, and I look forward to our ongoing professional relationship to ensure that we remain at the top of our game, and retain our RTO status in the future.
Wayne Basson, CEO
Pinnacle Height Safety
We were initially quite overwhelmed with the amount of work required to set up our own RTO. Richard was instrumental in providing the policies, procedures and materials required to get us over the line in a much quicker timeframe than what we could have achieved without his support. I can happily recommend his services.
Lee Cujes, General Manager
Eclipse Vale Pty Ltd
The first thing I noticed about Richard was his easy to understand approach. I found comfort in asking him what maybe stupid questions to some but useful questions to me. He used language that was suited to me. I called one of his testimonials to gain more knowledge about how Richard operated. We achieved RTO status with our first attempt. I strongly feel this had a lot to do with Richard. The time Richard devoted to Eclipse Vale was exceptional. I would not hesitate in recommending his services.
Simon Brown, CEO
Dangerous Goods Services
Without hesitation we can recommend your services not only to prospective RTO’s but to existing RTO’s in pursuit of their professional development. Thank you is possibly an understatement of our gratitude for your help and advice.
John Mills, Managing Director
BARS Training Australia
I found Richard (TBS Consulting) a pleasure to deal with during the chaos referred to by some people as the RTO application process. He was professional, helpful and answered his phone when it rang, which could only be called a blessing. I would recommend his services to anyone wishing to become a Registered Training Organisation.
Garry Oliver, Managing Director
Generally, RTO consultants don’t present or market information regarding their services in a format that can be compared ‘apples to apples’. The pricing structure varies enormously as does the list of services and the quality of the consultants who might provide those services. Richard Turner of TBS Consulting was a breath of fresh air in the maze of jargon and acronyms that is Vocational Education and Training. My research found that few consultants had actually ‘been there and done that’.
Richard owned an RTO for many years and offers his advice based on real world experience and a genuine understanding of the pressures associated with owning and operating a training business. I could not emphasise more strongly that the services offered by TBS Consulting are the best value for money RTO consultancy services available.
We passed the audit at the first attempt and Richard continues to be available via phone or email at any time.

We have strong commitment in writing this testimonial for Richard Turner from TBS consulting. One of our directors found Richard as a consultant to help us build a Registered Training Organisation and we enlisted his professional help which turned out to be totally invaluable in every aspect of our RTO journey. Richard proved to be extremely diligent and had the most amazing project management, knowledge and application skills to mentor us in a easily understandable way that ensured although we were starting from the very beginning we were successful. We are very happy to recommend Richard and his services.
