Potts Point, NSW, Australia – 13 November 2014 – BRW recently released their prestigious Fast 100 annual list, recognising the fastest-growing start-up companies in Australia. Many promising businesses made that list, and AlertForce.com.au is proud to stand amongst them. Ranking #19 on the list for 2014, the compliance training company looks forward to networking with and learning from other Australian businesses.
In order to compile this list, BRW scores companies based on the following criteria: number of years in business, financial turnover the previous year, number of full-time employees and growth in company revenue. In order to qualify, companies must have at least four months of operational history, employ fewer than 200 full-time employees and prove revenue growth and a minimum of $500,000 turnover from the previous year.
Brendan Torazzi, AlertForce’s CEO, told SmartCompany.com.au that the company has enjoyed steady growth since 2009, but the progress over the past two years has been remarkable. This is largely due to the company’s expertise in national training standards for the removal of asbestos.
While many Australian communities struggle to clean up dangerous asbestos-containing materials in residential and commercial buildings, many asbestos-removal companies have made headlines for illegal practices. AlertForce has stepped up to provide training to businesses and individuals involved in the removal of asbestos safely and legally.
In addition to specialising in asbestos education, AlertForce offers comprehensive Workplace Health and Safety (WHS) compliance training courses that are accredited, nationally recognised and in line with current governmental regulations. A diverse collection of certification and diploma courses are offered, including some unique specialisations.
AlertForce allows students to select from online courses and classroom courses with live instructors. Some students complete their certifications through a blend of online and face-to-face classes. The format is flexible so that participants needs are accommodated.
What sets AlertForce apart from other WHS training programmes is a commitment to innovation and expansion. Brendan Torazzi is a well-known entrepreneur and stated that the company “always looked for little niches in the market where the government says training is needed by a certain date.” Brendan and his WHS experts look for those opportunities to provide essential health and safety training to a wider audience.
For example, the company recently announced a new programme offering mandatory training for those interested in the Government’s National Broadband Network. As new government regulations are introduced, the course offerings at AlertForce will expand. It is that rapid response to governmental training standards, top-of-the-field instructors and flexible course environments that skyrocketed AlertForce to the top 20 of the Fast 100 List.
