About AST

All States Training (AST) began in 1995 when Barry Wadsworth – Managing Director, identified a significant need in the market for high quality training relating to the safe operation of large and small construction machinery and equipment, through to workplace health and safety standards.

Having spent most of his working career using such equipment and machinery, Barry felt it was the right time to take that first step toward the building of a new business, and began delivering courses to meet industry standards in those fields.

In 2005 De’Anne was brought on board to help the company move to its next step in the ladder of success, this included becoming an RTO (Registered Training Organisation) this means being able to conduct Nationally recognised training courses and issuing certificates for those courses.

The company may have started out as a “One man band” but over the last 20 years the company has grown to the extent that we now need the Orchestra to make it run smoothly and efficiently. All States Training has grown to be the proudly owned and operated Australian family business that individuals and companies have learnt to love and trust for both our great service delivery and the down to earth approach we have – making it easy for businesses to meet Workplace Health and Safety standards without the usual fuss and bother some workplaces have found it to be.

Now that we are a Recognised Training Organisation (RTO), AST have the ability to deliver nationally recognised training certifications and we are continuing to increase our scope in line with client’s needs, to include a full training package for varied industries that require machine or equipment operation certificates, through to blue cards, first aid, wire spotting and any other course that may need to be designed to meet workplace health and safety standards (including courses that don’t exist yet!). 

But that’s not all; Barry Wadsworth has designed and delivered courses for the use of basic hand tools through to driver training for rural equipment and quad bikes. So if you’re not sure, ask us what we can do for you!
