Forklift Training and Certification

Our training program consist of a classroom setting and behind the wheel training. In short, if you don’t have experience operating a forklift, we will teach you to operate the equipment and issue the respective forklift license in the same day. The entire process will take up to 8 hours to complete and at the end of the training you will receive your forklift license with your picture on it and a certificate of achievement. The license is valid for 3 years and OSHA accepted.

The primary objective is to convey the basic principles of forklift operation including load capacity, fork positioning, load positioning and how it relates to load center and center of gravity, speed limit, inspection elements, traveling on an incline, and fueling procedures. The curriculum also leads students through common causes of accidents, including driving too fast, traveling with load too high, improper loading and failing to watch for pedestrians.
