About Us

AISS Training is Australia's premier dedicated soft skills training group. We bring together experience working with participants from hundreds of companies ranging from some of the world’s largest - through to small-medium sized enterprise (SME). 

Our facilitators and trainers bring a wealth of collective experience to your business, spanning corporate training, communication skills, sales, management and customer service programs.

But it's really all about you

At AISS Training it’s all about you - and how you can best learn the skills you need - to excel at your current job, get a new one or nail that overdue promotion. For business owners it's about helping you gain the skills that will help you profoundly improve the way your business runs.

Our guarantee - we stand by our results!

We are so committed to delivering you and your staff members the best return on investment, that we back our training with a money back guarantee. We understand that choosing a training provider is daunting, so we have made it easy for you.

If your staff member doesn’t come back to you with new improved skills, you can send them to repeat the course with a different trainer, or choose any other course comparable to ensure that they get the outcomes they need.

All our session are PowerPoint free 

We know how mind-numbing PowerPoint presentations can be. And we can't understand how skills that teach humans to connect with other humans can be learnt in front of a computer screen.

We give you skills that anyone can easily use and provide an engaging and fun environment where you can try out your new skills in absolute safety.

What can you expect?

AISS Training believes that soft skills are essentially human skills. Each of our courses are practical, highly interactive and immediately useable. Watch our video to find out more about our unique approach to soft skills training.
