It’s critical for every business to Keep it Legal! Our experience and knowledge of the industry, combined with our expert training provision, can ensure that you remain compliant with your training and operational responsibilities. For example, if your operator’s counterbalance/forklift training certificates are out of date, you could be issued with a fine for non-compliance – recently issued fines are in excess of half a million pounds.
Candidates will undertake a multiple-choice test to assess their job-related safety knowledge at the beginning of the course and a practical test following the training. A certificate relevant to the level of training undertaken will be awarded on successful completion.
As an accredited trainer, we offer two levels of forklift certification.
