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.

Did the 3 day excavator course with Davo and Nick . Great blokes both highly knowledgeable and make it good course to do. Quite an experience...big thanks to the staff at Sunshine!!

Great instructors here, well worth it 👍🏼 Great training facilities! I completed my forklift license with Start Training. The instructors have a great knowledge of the course material. They guided me through both the theory and practical applications and made it very easy to understand all of the required information. I would recommend them to anyone wanting to get their forklift license. AAA+ Fantastic trainers! Went for my high risk forklift licence and these guys were the ultimate friendly professionals. Not to mention they have an amazing set up. Thanks for guiding me through! Great place to get your forklift license. Done my 2 days course here. Nick and Chris was very friendly and professional.

Thanks to all the staff at Sunshine West especially the trainer's and assessors Tom and John for a fantastic learning experience. Highly recommend them to anyone looking to obtain a forklift licence. They made the process very clear and easy to learn and follow. Tom's jokes need a little work but it was enjoyable and educational at the same time. Very satisfying experience. Great place fantastic knowledge easy learning environment. Recommend it to anyone . Excellent training, very thorough, really helpful team, flexible and good communication. Damo the trainer was great I did my 2 day forklift course at Ferntree Gully a few days ago and everyone out there were great to deal with.Thanks so much to my trainers Rob and John. Those guys did an amazing job of helping everyone dissect and understand all the information with a great balance of theory and practical work. They catered to a variety of experience levels in our group and did an awesome job of communicating all that info in a way that was easy for everyone to understand and remember with confidence.Their attention to detail and knowledge was very impressive and the focus on safety was really well presented.A shout out to Kirstie as well for the great communication, taking care of the booking and providing all the information ahead of time to get the ball rolling.These guys are awesome, I definitely recommend them to anyone after a great training experience.5 stars. Excellent training service with 1 on 1 support. Highly recommend. Great experience with great teacher and the best program! Get your license here. My Husband and I did our course for forklifts recently and I highly recommend coming here and train! Both Rob and Nathan were extremely helpful in teaching and assisting us whenever we struggled to understand. Lessons were a lot of fun and a lot of stories and experiences were shared which helped us in memorising before the tests! Great place to go for your license! 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. Thank you Had a forklift course at start training in Ferntree gully. Rob and Chris were great instructors helping you with things you don’t know and answering any questions you have in regards to getting the forklift licence. Would recommend this place to anyone needing to get a forklift licence. The place was clean and tidy, there was coffee, tea, toast.Our instructors were amazing.I loved every minute in that place. I highly recommended it Molly was super helpful and Nick is great to learn from. I highly recommend using these guys. I was nervous going into the course at the Carrum Downs site as this was my very first experience with Forklifts. The trainer was Barry who was very experienced. You will receive a training manual and a workbook when you signup for the course and you have to complete the workbook to be able to take the theory test. So I recommend you give yourself a few days and study hard when filling in the workbook as this will be used throughout the course and you will be tested in the theory and practical exams with questions from that workbook. The practical training and testing was great ... supervision given, but they let you get out there and make mistakes ... I asked if I could do some extra driving and they let me stay late after the first day and early morning on the second day to get extra practice in. I passed the exams on the first attempt. The one thing that really stands out is the quality of the training ... they drill OHS and WHS throughout the theory and back it up with the practical, so you learn organically and I think it's training that will last you in your job. I wouild definitely recommend Start Training and I want to go back and do more courses. Plus, if you are unemployed, your Work Skill centre will pay for the training fee. Teacher was extremely well versed in the topic knowledge. He was also very motivational, with an intent to provide real world experiences relevant to each topic. Made the day disappear fast. Thank you Fantastic people. They very very helpful. Training provided TOP Notch, excellent Instructors and staff, special mention to "Chantelle" and "Molly".Thanks Heaps, keep up the good work and quality Trainings. I would like to thank you for the time and help you provided me thank you so much I recently did my chainsaw ticket here. Great hands on experience from a knowledgeable instructor. Would recommend.
