“I have always been very satisfied with the level of service we have received from DGC and the instructors are very friendly and familiar with our site so courses are easily tailored to suit our needs. The instructors are very proficient and experienced so always able to give feedback on our processes and equipment so we can continuously improve our standards also. Training has always been difficult to arrange due to our shift patterns but Marie and Maureen are very helpful in helping us achieve full compliance with our internal training matrix in a very cost effective manner”

We have used your services for the past four years and have enjoyed an excellent working relationship and have only had glowing reports from our employees regarding the training and certification they received. Thanks for the level of service you have been able to provide; we look forward to a continuing professional relationship.

At Daiwa Sports we are very aware of how important health and safety is and that is why when we were looking for a forklift training company we chose DGC Training Services. I have always found them to be a very professional company which has a high standard of trainers and these are the reasons we will continue to use them time after time.

Thank you for your assistance in getting 30 of my workforce trained in the various stages of Forklift driving. Your service and quality of training was excellent and has been great help in making sure that we can now move materials/transfer goods around around our site in a safer and more efficient manner. Can I also commend you on our back-up care where the relevant paperwork and certificates were issued to me and forwarded to the successful operators promptly.
“Very Thankful for the help of Grant – Great Instructor”.
