Our training is split into three separate sections:
Theory – trainees will be provided with a pre-course operators’ manual to read before the training takes place. The instructor will talk through the main points of the manual and trainees will have the opportunity to ask questions about anything that requires further clarification or explanation. During the theory session trainees will also be shown one or two videos and there will be a written test.
Practical – the practical session will include an introduction to the lift truck, a pre-use inspection, demonstrations by the instructor and exercises for the trainees, eg, steering exercises, stacking/de-stacking.
Evaluation – the instructor will evaluate the progress of the trainee and if they reach the required standard they will undertake a test of basic operating skills. If the test is completed successfully, the trainee will receive a certificate and a photo ID card (if requested).
