Forklift Training

Forklift Training

We are able to provide Forklift Truck Training for most categories of forklift truck.

Training can be completed at our centre, or alternatively we can deliver bespoke in-house training at your customer site.

By law, all operators are required to complete training and be deemed competent in order to use forklift trucks in the workplace.

Flexible Options - train In-Centre or at Your Premises!

RTITB Accredited Training

All of our lift truck machinery training can be accredited to RTITB standard, the leading awarding body for industrial machinery in the UK.

RTITB licences are valid for 3 years before refresher training is required.

In-House Training

We are also able to offer bespoke in-house training solutions at customer sites if required. Our instructors cover South Wales and can travel across the country if required.

Training can be tailored to your exact operation, and our own certification provided once operators are competent.

Please contact us to discuss your requirement so that we can identify a bespoke package of training that works for you.

Trusted by industry leaders across multiple sectors

Operators completing accredited training will be issued with an RTITB licence. The course covers all elements of forklift operations, which is ideal for those looking to gain the licence in order to apply for work. It shows they have been formally trained to a recognised standard.

In-house certification is typically provider by employers to their employees. Training is often bespoke to suit the exact use of the machinery in the workplace. It will allow the operator to use the machinery at their place of work, but the licence is non-transferable.

Course durations depend on operators prior experience – for example, an experienced operator will be able to complete a shorter course to a novice operator.

Please contact us to discuss.

Yes, providing you:

  • are still competent and can operate the machine to a high standard
  • have previously held a licence to a recognised awarding body

Licences are valid for 3 years.

You must complete a 1 day Refresher Course if you want to renew your licence.

No – you do not need a car licence to attend, however you must be at least 16 years old.
