    Your Trainer, Anette Kortenhaus:

    Teaching allows me to combine my two passions: Growing and learning as an individual and passing this
    knowledge and experience on, so that opportunities are provided for personal development and growth,
    and self-limiting beliefs are able to be confronted in a caring way.

    For 3 years I taught the NEIS program showing and demonstrating people on Centerlink benefits
    how they can turn their lives around, become independent and proud of their achievements. It is so often
    more about self-esteem and confidence than business skills and start-up money.

    I have been teaching the following courses or part of:

    • Diploma of Business
    • Certificate IV in Training and Assessment
    • Certificate IV in Frontline Management
    • Certificate IV in Small Business Management
    • Certificate III in Micro Business Operations
    • Certificate I in Workplace Education
