About us

Practical, relevant training developed for the Australian workplace.

What do we do?

We deliver short courses for frontline staff and are dedicated to providing you with the skills you need to enhance your competitiveness whether that be with Microsoft Office courses, Professional Development courses or Leadership Courses. We provide in-house training at our dedicated public training venues in Melbourne and Brisbane and on-site for private groups across Australia.  Odyssey Training also offers live interactive online training where you can learn from the comfort of your own home. Duration of courses range from as short and sharp 3 hour courses up to multiple full day courses.

We can also come to you and run a corporate in-house training session at your own venue to suit your needs. We run over 450 customised training courses and 700 scheduled training courses each year. As a major outsource partner for local and national projects across the private and public sectors, we have developed and improved the lives of over 85,000 Australians.


Why train with us?

For public scheduled courses, we provide:

  • Hard copy courseware/training manual
  • eCertificate emailed to students upon completion
  • Small classes (average of 8 students per class, maximum of 12)
  • 60 days post-course support for computer training


Taking action after your training

At the conclusion of our professional development courses, each student completes a Personal “Take Action” Plan. As part of this plan, students reflect on what they have learned and identify changes they plan to implement when they return to the workplace.

Line managers may also be provided with copies of these by their staff to facilitate the transfer of the learning back into the workplace.


We believe that training is an investment in the future.

All training manuals used in our courses are developed in-house and designed to enable participants to revise the learning when they return to the workplace. Students are provided with a training manual and computer courses also include training files which can be downloaded from our website.


Australian courseware, relevant to Australian workplaces.

We offer total training solutions that enable staff to sharpen their skills and improve workplace operations so that organisational outcomes are met. We undertake pre and post course analyses so that learning outcomes are met. Evaluation forms, feedback questionnaires and trainer’s reports provide us with feedback to continually develop our content and approach.

We believe that an investment in training should achieve the following results for our clients:

  • Increase in output of work
  • Improvement in quality of work
  • Increased job satisfaction for staff
