Training Types

There are a lot of training companies and trainers out there that compromise on the Quality of training, we will not do that as we believe every individual deserves the best possible training we can provide and our record is a testament to that ethos.  Our aim is to provide the best training possible at competitive prices by following ITSSAR standards and the Approved Code Of Practice for Rider-operated lift truck operator training ( L117 ).

Novice courses are 3-5 days depending on the number of candidates on the course.

The novice fork lift course is designed for delegates who have very little or no previous experience operating a fork lift truck in any environment.

Our courses are designed to ensures that all delegates have obtained a level of fork lift operating skill through practical and theory training that complies with the standards and regulations laid down by the HSE Approved Code of Practice (ACOP) L117.

Without previous experience the novice needs time to absorb the theory and practice safe handling of the lift truck, gaining confidence in their ability and new found skills, as well as appreciating the Health and Safety side of the working environment.

This will result in a higher standard of Forklift truck driving skill and increased safety awareness.

Conversion Courses are 2-3 days depending on the number of candidates on the course.

The Conversion course is designed for those delegates that want to transfer those skills already gained on one truck to another truck. 

Refresher Course are one full day for upto 3 delegates.

The refresher training should be done every 3-5 years to maintain safe operating standards in the workplace.

The drive wheel is located under the operator's seating position. The driver sits sideways when operating the machine.

The Pivot Steer much like the Reach truck are most commonly used within warehouses with very narrow aisles and high racking systems

Order Picker

The machine known as an order picker is an electric lift truck specifically designed for filling individual customer orders which require piece-part or case picking, rather than full pallets or unit loads. Order pickers are used at elevations higher than the second level of racking in a warehouse or distribution centre.

Very Narrow Aisle

A turret truck is specifically designed to do one task: operate in very narrow aisles. The turret truck is often abbreviated to VNA standing for very narrow aisle truck. Turret Trucks are a battery operated machine that uses both the electric engine, battery and operator compartment to counterweight heavy loads.
