  • - Ken, GTE
    “Great course, the trainer was very experienced, friendly and approachable. The Training Ahead team had the best service I’ve experienced in a training course. The portable rail trailer was realistic and a great learning tool – I haven’t seen anything like it.”
  • - Trevor, HiRail Services
    “I have been in rail for 20+ years and flew in from WA the morning of the course and arrived at the course late. Dannielle was great to deal with, she made sure I was comfortable, helped me complete the paperwork after the course. Great service and the trainer was very experienced and explained things in an easy to understand way.”
  • - Luke, Chelby Machinery
    “They really care. The staff really care about the outcomes and the experience of the student. Having the venue at a rail operators workshop was great as we got to experience what it’s really like to work in the rail environment. We had access to a variety of rail tools and machinery and given access to use them on some rail track
    The whole process was easy and the course is really easy to understand.”


“I found the Microsoft Office and MYOB training conducted by Training Ahead Australia to be exactly what I required; it was thorough, and was applied with the right level of context to deepen my understanding and meet the objectives of each course. The team are lovely, approachable, honest, and deliver training with the highest level of professionalism.”- Cassandra Sampson, Thiess
