In addition to customer service representatives, this includes other positions such as receptionists, technical support representatives, field service technicians, sales engineers, shopkeepers, waiters, trades people, etc.

Course may be delivered as non-accredited or accredited training. If non-accredited training is chosen, more content will be delivered, as there is no requirement to undertake assessment. Participants will be issued with a Certificate of Completion at the end of the course.
If accredited training is chosen, there will be the requirement to undertake assessment tasks as part of the course. Upon successful completion of a theory assessment and role-play activities, participants will be issued with a Statement of Attainment for BSBCUS301 Deliver and monitor a service to customers.
