Business Opportunity

Within Victoria, Australia




Have You considered Becoming Part of the DTA Team


Be free to do what you do best without having to do the time consuming “stuff” that makes it difficult.


In your own business but not in business on your own.

There are a range of opportunities available including: 

In fact any compatible business which needs to be supported by a REGISTERED TRAINING ORGANISATION structure.   

All you need is a draft business plan.

An opportunity to run your own training business with:

All at an amazingly low, ‘pay-as-you-go’ business overhead fee.


DTA agrees to:

You agree to:





People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.


When they find out that you really care you had better know something.


Never stop learning.   Continuously read books about your personal development, communication processes 

and research into your industry.    Continuously practice your craft.   

“The day you stop learning is the day you give up the right to teach”.


The most freeing fact for any ‘instructor’ to grasp is that you can’t ‘teach’ anybody anything.


All an instructor can do is provide the participant with a great learning environment which enables her/him 

to learn what is relevant to themselves according to their own learning style and personality type. 


A great instructor cannot do more and dares not do less.


As an instructor when you create a sound learning environment you will have happy participants.  

Your ability to create a great learning environment will turn happy participants into raving fans.  


Instructors who have raving fans as participants don’t have to spend much on advertising.
