What is conversion training?

Conversion training can be carried out when an employee already holds a licence on one type of forklift truck but needs training on another type. For example, an employee has a current counterbalance truck licence but he also needs to use the reach truck.

Instead of the usual three day novice course for the reach truck, we are able to carry out conversion training in one day for one trainee. A conversion course for two or three candidates will be two days. These timescales relate to reach, counterbalance and telescopic trucks. The timescales may vary slightly for different truck types.

If you are unsure of the type of training you require, please contact us. We are happy to talk to you about your requirements. There is no obligation to book a course. Tel: 0800 024 8084.
