Forklift Training refresher courses
We also offer one day forklift refresher training classes, to help you keep your skills current and up to date. We can offer training to you in your workplace or you can come to us. The cost of a full forklift operators licensing course is a full day of classroom theory training covering all of the previously listed items and more, and is delivered via a PowerPoint presentation and a series of the latest training DVD’s.
On the completion of the day the trainee will be issued with a log book which will need to be completed and signed for everyday they operate the forklift.
The trainee will have to log up to 40 nominal hours on the forklift after which the trainee will be assessed and signed off on, once competent.
