I completed a EWP course with Start Training, and found the staff, facilities and support to be outstanding, and surpassed my expectations. If I need a course and Start Training offers it, they'll be my first choice.
My instructor Nev was brilliant with helping me gain a grasp of both the theory and practical sides of a forklift, something I had never done before. They tailor their training based off the individual and will definitely be recommending Start Training for all work licenses.

Guys if you are curious, asking yourself if you should or shouldn’t take the course because you don’t know anything. The only thing I’m going to tell you is go for it. I’m a living witness I’ve went there for 2 of my license not knowing anything but the teachers are just so good at explaining and giving you experience on the machines the best. Shout out to my teachers Tyler and nick appreciate you guys.

They were all friendly staff, casual and relaxed at the right times but serious about forklift safety. The theory test was a little grueling but they made it quite well-known what was needed to be studied, which helped.

I just completed my LF-Forklift course at START Training and i could not be happier! The facilities and equipment are in perfect condition and if that wasn't enough Sergio and Dan made the experience 10times better! They were extremely nice, patient, welcomed any questions me and others had and most of all they focused on us learning everything we needed for this course while having fun and making studying easier!!! If you want to feel welcomed and getting that feeling of stress leaving your body everytime you want to study or do a test while training for something new you should definetely contact these guys they are the best!!!Thanks guys for making this an amazing experience for me!!
Very informative and good at teaching in the written and practical lessons and courses I passed my lf forklift first time because I had that support from the team members teaching me. The teachings were easy to understand and just picked it up straight away. I will be back in a month or two to do a white card and a few other licences eventually! Definitely recommend!

Fantastic teachers. Great people.
The teacher was kind and provided detailed explanations, making the learning process easy and enjoyable. While passing the exam wasn't easy, the teacher managed the difficulty level well, making it manageable to pass smoothly. The practical exam was also conducted safely and accurately, which was appreciated.

Perfect training for non native speakers, they explained with basic english that u could understand without thinking or suggesting what vocabularies is that.. the pdf so helpful as well..
We took a group of staff members to Start Training, some with and without forklift experience. The guys at Start Training were fantastic and helpful, no problem recommending these guys.

The two senior excavator teachers are respectful and helpful. The younger one has a quite juvenile and racially biased sense of humor that i don't share. I don' really care myself but i post it here hoping to make it a better world for my son to grow up in.
