★★★★★ "I spent two days online virtual training on PTT Train the Trainer with Target Training Associates led by the wonderfully charismatic Ralph Moody. Many words spring to mind to describe this but let me try to capture the essence - enjoyable, uplifting, insightful, informative and totally transformative. Ralph sets standards high and delivers as the incredibly upbeat, switched on and consummate professional he truly is. He has over three decades of professional training experience expertise and it really shows. I cannot recommend time spent with Ralph and Target Training Associates highly enough, it is simply superb!" Maire Grattan.

★★★★★ "My first journey into training was with Scott Fraser of Target Training Associates. I started off a nervous and un-confident man and ended up after our 2 days training sessions a very confident and knowledgeable trainer. There are tips and techniques I learnt in the classroom that I use in my life to this day I was not prepared for how much I enjoyed and how much I took out of the sessions and I found Scott to be the most captivating and effective trainer I have ever witnessed. I would not hesitate to recommend him and Target Training as they are consummate professionals in what they do." Rob Foreman.

★★★★★ "I would highly recommend the training for trainers course which I have just completed with Ralph. It has been the best training I have ever had. The support and understanding Ralph gave to my dyslexia was 2nd to none. The course itself was laid out in such a way it was so easy to understand and practice all my questions were answered. The techniques that Ralph showed us very good and made complete sense his encouragement and praise was excellent and very supportive I would encourage and recommend anyone to take this training course and even if you have disabilities Ralph does support you and make allowances big thanks to Ralph" Tracy Walker.

★★★★★ "My experience with Target Training has been absolutely outstanding! It has genuinely changed my life and made me really excited for a future in training. I had the pleasure of working with Ralph, Scott and Claire, and all 3 trainers really encouraged me and gave me really useful feedback so that I clearly understood what I was doing well and what I could develop. The training itself was engaging, informative and inspiring, and it is genuinely the best training I have ever received. I have gone from being a total training novice to confidently delivering an effective training session equipped with all the tools I need." Sarah Borg.
