Agoge Training focuses its efforts in two areas as a private training establishment. The first is providing helpful and relevant training to all our trainees, to ensure that everyone understands the material and more importantly how to operate it safely on conclusion of the course. The latter, ensures compliance that exceeds expectations of approving and influential bodies (NZQA, NZTA, MITO, Competenz, and Worksafe). With these focuses, our training is not only engaging and industry compliant, but is tailored to ensure trainees get the most learning achievable through the course.
