Group Programs

The Forklift Trainer is fully certified and registered to teach Forklift lessons.
You will be instructed in the correct mechanical aspects of operating a lift truck including: The Rider Operator Lift Truck Code of Practice & Safety Film, learning starting and stopping, parking, braking and turning, safe correct use of hydraulics, Transporting pallets, stacking and de-stacking, battery maintenance awareness including placing the lift truck battery on charge, Safe Working Loads (SWL) load weight assessment and with particular attention and emphasis on lift truck stability/instability and pre use inspection and fault recording and reporting procedures on lift trucks.
Training CoursesTraining Two

The following require Individual Training & Certification:

    • Reach Lift Truck
    • Side Loading Lift Truck
    • Power Pallet Lift Truck
    • MEWP (Mobile Elevated Work Platform)
    • Boom Lift
    • Manual Handling (Fetac Level 6)
  • Abrasive Wheels Training
A common misconception is that once you have a Forklift Certificate it covers all types of lifting machinery.  This is not the case.
In fact, The Health & Safety Authority‚Äôs Rider Operated Lift Trucks Code of Practice  states that even if you add an attachment to a lift truck, additional training is required or even if the operator moves from a small forklift to a bigger (greater lifting capacity) truck, then additional training is required.
