From the moment I made contact with the delightful office staff to the moment I walked out the door with my forklift license, Start Training were amazing to work with. With wonderfully welcoming facilities, and amazing trainers, I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed my course. As a woman in what could be traditionally assumed a male dominated area of training, I felt supported and welcomed and the trainer Shaun was absolutely fabulous to work with. For training courses that are informative, engaging and enjoyable, I can't recommend Start Training highly enough! Thanks team! Carlaread more

Start Training give an excellent theory lesson which have a lot of details. Their theory test is also very good for trainee's mind power, as it does not have many multiple-choice questions. Their practical training is very details and the period depends on individual's need until the trainer see the trainee is good enough for the test or the trainee feel he/she is ready for the test.read more

I required a licence to operate a scissor lift (an "Elevating Working Platform" below 11m) and was sent to attend a 1 day class at "Start Training" to ensure I was fully capable and legally able to commence operating these machines. Start Training assisted prior to booking by suggesting I extend training beyond just operating a scissor-lift to booms and hoists. I found this to be good advice and coupled with excellent theory and hands on practical training enjoyed the training experience. Good Job Start Training team and much appreciated.read more

Finished the two day forklift course. The trainers for each day, Shaun for day one and Dean for day two were both fantastic for the instruction on each. Never would have thought that so much information, all of it useful, could be compressed into two days. Once done it felt like the class had been through a whole semester. All it takes is a lot of work and focus on your part to be able to do well on this course because the trainers provide everything else you need. As a driving Learner I was even given extra time on a forklift in my own private area to make sure I could handle the steering and Shaun was always a good source of encouragement and critique. All the instructions are clear for the course if you listen and pay attention, and if you do then you will learn and understand everything you need to. If ever I need to do a course for a license of any kind of machinery I will be looking to Start Training first to see if they teach it. Wish I could have posted this review a couple of weeks ago but couldn't get around to it. Cheers, Alexander.read more

I did my excavator license at START TRAINING January 2018. I chose the 1 day course as I’d had experience in them. This class of 7 guys on this day, was absolutely amazing to watch the instructor BRAD W, have many machines running with mostly newbies on them for the first time and to watch BRAD W handle everything at once going to every machine back n forth.read more

Brilliant experience with the trainer, Macca and the Start Training organisation. Macca's knowledge is extensive and thorough on all the mobile equipment, relevant Acts and regulations. And he applies and enforces that from start to finish. His practical examples on the equipment was very impressive and his ability to teach and instruct from novices to experienced people is super effective and very engaging. Keep it going. Thanks.. . .read more

Excellent training, brilliantly scheduled days with ample time on equipment to develop a firm basis of practical knowledge. Theoretical Knowledge and safety is covered thoroughly to ensure students enter the workplace with a realistic comprehension of High Risk Work. Some chairs need replacing in the class rooms though, but over all an excellent place to learn and get permits for industrial equipment.read more
