Highly recommended this training school. I did my 3day course in the afternoon classes at Ferntree Gully. Sam did an amazing job of helping everyone to understand all the information about basic theory up to practical work and all the technical operation about the course.This guy is awesome and very helpful to learn more especially to those who never had an experience about how to drive a forklift.I definitely recommend him to anyone after a great training experience. God bless you brother! Thank you so much Start Training! 5 STARS!!!!! There are all of people are so kind.Actually I’m not a native speaker so my English skill is bad.. I didn’t understand about their saying pretty much but They tried to help me. I appreciate them.Especially Tom, he is a best instructor.Find him and learn. I did the chainsaw operation and maintainance course at Ferntree Gully this week and was extremely happy with the depth and quality of the course and in particular the trainer (Matt) who had more than 3 decades of experience. I would recommend this course to anyone who requires a basic introduction to chainsaw use and if they are lucky enough to get Matt as their trainer that will be a bonus. Mr Tom is a excellent Instructor. I Appreciate his work.Thank You Mr.Tom for teach us. I completed the high Risk forklift license with Nathan as my instructor who was very good the testing setup was very work space like, l was made to feel welcome right from the moment I walked in the front door by the receptionist who showed me where the toilet, coffee and snacks were and my classroom.A good experience all round.

Got my white card. Recommend start training. I recently completed my construction industry white card and forklift license with the team at Start Training in Ferntree Gully. I have completed a number of training course throughout the years and from day dot these guys are simply awesome! Legit trainers with relevant industry experience in the field they are giving training in is priceless. I found the theory and practical excellent, it was taught in a way that was easy to understand while holding you at a higher standard to pass the assessments. I obtained an injury the day before starting my forklift course, tried to do the course they saw the pain I was told me to go home, get better and give them a call when I'm feeling better to jump in a new class at no extra cost which I cant thank them enough for. I'm putting a bit of a plan together for more training and I wont think twice about going back to Start Training in Ferntree Gully, in fact I cant wait. Thanks team 🙂 I recently got my EWP ticket at start training the staff where awesome and the facilities where great. Made my experience a great one. I highly recommend start training.

Everything was amazing, the trainers were great, the facility was awesome, lovely and clean and well stocked with goodies such as coffee and fruit and everyone was friendly and knowledgeable. Cannot recommend Start Training enough! I recently completed my Yellow Card and EWP Ticket at Start Training. Their facilities and equipment where fantastic, clean, well maintained and way above standard. The instructor Terry was awesome, he made the whole experience a breeze and enjoyable and has an enormous amount of real industry experience. Highly recommend.

The facilities were great and the venue ideal for both practical and theory sides of the programme. The service was top notch and I highly recommend others to trial this programme. Thanks guys for the training, great and helpful trainers. Recommended!! Did my forklift licence here today and just want to say a massive shout out to Chris, his training was superb and just straight up awesome! I learnt so so much and became so confident behind the wheel of the forklift it was great! Also his way of going about the theory work was just magnificent, super informative and also a never dull moment as I was totally engaged the whole time.Another shout out needs to be mentioned to the rest of the team! Super friendly and always willing to lend a hand and answer questions. Great bunch!!!I 100% recommend anyone who is interested in doing this course or any other related HRW course to come here. You will just receive the absolute best training bottom line. Nice experience.Jeff was a great trainer.Very patient, kind and helpful throughout the whole course. Did my Scissor lift License and Forklift License with Start Training and it was a really good experience. Friendly people, very helpful.Would definitely recommend them !!! I had no previous excavator experience. Really great instructors. Highly recommended. I took the Forklift Licence course in Sunshine with Tom as a trainer. The course is very complete and straightforward. The contents of it get dealt with in class and then reviewed again so you get plenty of help and they walk you through everything. In terms of actual practice, you get what you need and if you feel like you need a bit more, they provide it. All in all, Start Training makes it very easy to get a licence. Best place to get white card and other licences in Melbourne Nice, easy and supportive. Got my HRW (forklift) training done here and the experience was made so much earlier by the positive and supportive staff!! Highly recommend!! I have no experience with Forklift Truck. After attending this course, I gained a lot of experience and knowledge. The good attitude of the trainers. I am very happy to be in this course because of their good teaching. I had the 2 Nicks teaching us and they were both fantastic at settling my nerves and reassuring me that I'd done the work and would fine which i was, thanks heaps to both Nicks and the whole start training team. One of the best! Had a grouse time at start training had Chris as my trainer.. made the day go real quick learnt heaps. And got a good result! Thankyou all!.. COULD NOT RECOMMEND HIGHLY ENOUGH!!I just want to say a HUGE thank you to the Sales Consultants, Receptionist and Trainer, Terry from Ferntree Gully for my experience at Start Training.They were extremely understanding of my unfortunate personal circumstances that caused me to be unavailable to attend the second day of my EWP course! A huge shout out to Shannon & Molly for being so supportive and helping me complete this course via constant emails to see how I was going and possible future dates for EWP course. And another amazing Shout out to Kirstie and Terry, from Ferntree Gully training centre, for not only allowing me to attend the second day of an EWP course a few weeks later but Terry being kind enough to stay behind after Day 1 of that course and have me come in and practice and refresh me on how to use the EWP. Thank you for taking time out of your day and waiting around to help me to become familiar with it all and thank you Kirstie for setting that up for me.This is such a professional RTO that really wants the best out of everyone. They go above and beyond to help you achieve your course. Terry was extremely approachable and I felt comfortable asking him many questions. The trainers make sure you understand all the information needed before taking the assessment and go through it in a thorough manner. Terry had a great amount of knowledge not just with EWPs but in many other HRW courses like Dogmans & Crane. You could tell he had a wealth of experience in the construction industry.As long as you do a bit of homework before the course by making the effort to read through and complete the workbook, you will have no issues. Great place to go for any kind of construction training and licencing, awesome facilities and equipment, trainers have plenty of knowledge and experience. Couldn't recommend them enough. Great Instructor Dirk , made the process interesting and enjoyable which makes it easier to retain the information learned on the day. It was close to home and easy to find behind Macca’s, 7 Hayward Rd.Ferntree Gully👍 “Sir Dirk” captivated our students from our school during the White Card training. Very well presented and explained.Cheers Great course and experience!Chris is a top notch instructor 👌 If you need to get your forklift licence then I highly recommend Start Training. Very professional but relaxed. Everyone on my 2 day course was made to feel comfortable. The team relay information in a way that anyone can understand. I feel they are able to get the best out of people. Sam is an excellent instructor. Got my forklift licence on a Friday, got a job on Tuesday, was comfortable moving 8m loads on Wednesday. Thank you. I have done other training in other places and must say that my experiance at start training would have been the best.Very helpful and will pick you up if you are doing something wrong and explain and show where you have gone wrong and how to fix it so you can be the best at what you do.Thanks guys Did my forklift training at start training you’d be crazy if you don’t train with them their instructors know what their talking aboutDid my white card here also best place for high risk work training Had a great experience getting my forklift license here. Nathan was an amazing and thorough instructor and made sure we were all ready for our tests. There was a perfect level of seriousness and friendliness among all of the staff along with coffee, tea, snacks and a general feeling of welcomeness. Highly recommend coming here. I highly recommend Sunshine West location. Jasmine at the front is helpful and friendly. My LO teacher Josh was really good at his craft and very professional. Clean facilities and they even offer cereal for breaky as well as tea and coffee throughout the day. I was fortunate enough to have had Nathan as my trainer, and from my experience he is one of the best trainers out there. He understood how each individual had different ways of learning and would quickly adapt to your needs, making it an awesome experience!the rest of the staff were very friendly and were easy to approach.thank you Start Training for having me, and thank you for the cookies!!! 🙂 Extremely professional. I was very nervous and the two trainers Nick and Damo made me feel at ease very quickly. The teaching style not only made me more confident but they also shared their professional knowledge so I was able to hone skills I already had. Highly recommended. I completed two courses with Nick and Damo in Ferntree Gully and one course with Josh in Sunshine. All three have a great sense of humour, easy to work with and understand. I am dyslexic and most courses are never easy for me. I informed Nick and Josh about my condition and both went the extra yard to make sure I'm coping ok.To their credit, I did not need extra assistance.To anyone out there that suffers the same condition I highly recommend Start Training. The trainers right thru to admin are nothing but amazing.Classes very informative and clear in direction. I am Keyvan and I am new in Melbourne , my first course that I have taken here was with Start Training Group.the information that the instructors have had is really more than enough and they knows to mush, and i should say thank you to Nick and Damien because they are very friendly and patient. Very professional and complete training. Thoroughly recommended. Great people at Ferntree Gully very clean environment, facilities really friendly instructors Nathan helps you as much as possible Chris was great as well highly recommend these people if going for a new license or refresher like myself because I never renewed mine many years ago Went for white card course , staff were friendly and knowledgeable, definitely recommend . Did the 3 day excavator course with Davo and Nick . Great blokes both highly knowledgeable and make it good course to do.
