“Somax are knowledgeable and really care about the service they provide, I could not ask for more. I would totally recommend them.”
“Somax are flexible and work with us to minimise disruption to our working day while the training is taking place, even if that means them working weekends.”Martyn Jones
“Somax ‘get it’, they fully understand the haulage industry and how it works this makes a real difference to us.”
“All our drivers have been trained by Somax and all of them have benefited from it.”
“It is important that Bristol Airport has a Driver Training provider that is reliable and provides an up-to-date, quality driven training program to our PCV Driver team. I’m pleased to say Somax meets and exceeds all our expectations.”
“We required a professional, accredited and reliable driver training company, and SOMAX ticked all these boxes.”
“Somax has an incredible reputation in the industry for delivering effective driver training and being able to source funding to reduce the costs of it.”
Early in 2012, I had never heard of Somax before but was forwarded an email from the Compliance Director of Risk Management Compliance with Somax details on it stating that it maybe worth some investigation.
Funded training is a rarity and so I endeavoured to make contact with Somax to find out what they were all about. I was pleasantly surprised, there was no hard sale just a very enthusiastic owner passionate about training and driver development. Following our initial phone call a meeting was subsequently arranged with the Municipal Managers in Cornwall to investigate further the possibility of using Somax for approximately 200 drivers during 2012.
Again there was no hard sale and there was the likability factor was there straightaway with the Managers, at this point the meeting was just for information purposes and ultimately a decision was not made until July 2012 to move ahead with Somax for Driver CPC Training. We have ultimately put approximately 175 drivers through 3 days of Driver CPC during September / October / November / December 2012.
“The staff at Somax are genuinely interested in the learners and really want them to be successful in their training.”
During this time the journey has been relatively plain sailing, with a minor hipcup or two along the way (which is to expected putting this amount of drivers through). Very little time on my part has been spent dealing with the Administration and Shireen from Somax has given me weekly updates during the training months. Feedback has been fantastic from the Drivers and as well as earning their Driver CPC a lot of learning has been accumulated as well.
I would totally recommend Somax as a Training Provider, the quality of their trainers is very high and I would like to add, time is ticking away to September 2014 and my suspicions are that Somax’s diary will get chocka as time ticks on due to the quality of their training and Saturday / Sunday availability – so go ahead and give them a tryFiona Cummins
