RTITB Counterbalance Forklift Truck

DSC_0828resizedThe counter balance lift truck is the most common forklift truck that is seen in operation. The versatile truck is commonly used in yards and builders merchants, as well as logistic warehouses for vehicle loading.

We offer the counterbalance course to RTITB standard, allowing the operator to use the license in several different industries. The license requires operators to complete a one day refresher course every three years, in order to maintain and keep their license valid. Upon completion, the operator will receive a certificate and photo card license, issued by RTITB.

There are three course types, dependent on past experience. These are

  • Novice Operator

For those who have never used a forklift truck before. Five days in duration.

  • Experienced Operator

For those who have previously used, or have some experience using, a forklift truck. This includes those who have previously held an ‘in-house’ licence, not certified to a recognised awarding body. Three days in duration.

  • Refresher

For those who already hold a licence to a recognised awarding body (i.e. RTITB / ITSAAR) and are looking to refresh their entitlement for a further three years. One day in duration.
