Course Reviews

Had a 1 to 1 forklift course at their Reading branch. The instructor was very clear, helpful and patient.Would and have recommended them to others.

Reading

Last week I attended an online CPC with 2-Start, I have completed a course online before for a different industry, as well as many years of E-learning, I thought the course was well put together, presented well by both lectures (Joe & Nicky), each day, towards the end of each training day, a log in code was received via email for the course the following day. Video training has its advantage as well as disadvantages, it suited me as I was out of the UK at the time for the five days course, I would recommend this course to another LGV driver, also value for money.

I’ve just completed my Forklift training with 2 Start at the reading branch. It has been an absolute pleasure and privilege to have worked with such an experienced and extremely professional company Roy (our instructor) has been an absolute diamond and I cannot thank him enough Thank You!! I would 1000% recommend this company without even thinking about it and I will be back for another course! In due time thanks again
