The most reliable are the video format testimonials – you can read people’s faces as they talk to gauge how honest the testimonial is.
If you’re fortunate, you may even get to talk to the end users, the employers. They are the people who can really tell you how effective the training has been. If you can’t actually talk to the employers, you can at least get an indication of how successful a heavy equipment training organization is by the list of employers on their job’s database – if they have one.
