The Daniels Associates began 35 years ago in providing software and consulting services to the health care market for benchmarking labour in cleaning support services. Over the years many customers and adapted our software to provide benchmarking for many other support services functions in building maintenance, food service, and laundry operations. 

It was at a trade show in Melbourne in 2000 that we realised how much we had to offer our client by becoming a Registered Training Organisation and in 2003 that part of our history commenced.

Since 2003 Daniels Associates have developed into a National Training Provider with clients throughout Australia. We believe a strong part of our success is that we have always delivered what we have promised to our customers. Over the last 20 years we have built a successful network of customers in Australia in the areas of hospitality, clubs, health and aged care, laundry operations, cleaning contractors, building owners and managers.

From the beginning we realised a number of short comings with the organisation’s we met in the industry and set out to do better. These are reflected in our core values as a training organisation: Our mission is to deliver hospitality training that is relevant based on 30 years combined industry experience.
