James began his teaching career initially as a driving instructor in 2008.
With his passion for teaching people and encouraging others, he decided to extend his teaching skills obtained as a driving instructor to educating others in the operation of heavy lifting equipment.
James has been teaching fork lift skills since 2013, he is fully RTITB qualified to teach in a range of vehicles.
There are some similarities in teaching people to drive cars and fork lift trucks and his aim is to make people feel comfortable and relaxed so they enjoy their training and forget about being nervous. It is extremely rewarding to see trainees pass their driving test or fork lift test and to know that he has helped them gain an essential skill for life.
Whereas with driving instruction, he may not work with his trainees again after they have passed their test (with the exception of Pass Plus) but fork lift refresher training is carried out every 3 years so it’s good to see trainees again and make sure their skills are up to date on their one day refresher course.
James enjoys the diversity of fork lift training as he gets to travel widely and train on some interesting sites. To date James has been training in Cornwall, Hampshire, Suffolk, Norfolk, Surrey and Kent as well as more local courses in and around Oxfordshire.
James is delighted to be part of the team at Stackers Training and looks forward to an exciting career with the Company. If you are looking for a professional company to help you get your forklift licence contact Stackers Training on 0800 024 8084
