Forklift Certification

With so many different types of forklifts available, each with their own set of features and options; our course covers the basic operation of all classes as well as an in depth look into the machine participants will be operating day to day. The primary benefit to on-site forklift training, is the ability to familiarize each participant with the forklift they operate on a daily basis. Whether its a Linde Baker with hydrostatic drive, or a Toyota with SAS and fork leveling assist, or even a 3 wheeled electric sit down unit, each participant will be familiar with their particular machine and all of its unique functions and characteristics. To finish, each participant will be tested in their actual operating environment to acquire their forklift certification.
