The forklift instructors course is based on instructing on a counterbalance forklift truck and a basic operator certificate is required (undertaken or refreshed within 6 months of the course start date – in-house certificates not acceptable), however if you currently hold a basic operator certificate for another machine, such as reach truck, you can undertake the counterbalance conversion course to meet the pre-requisite.

Instructor Training Testimonials

Simon Tattersall – Operations Supervisor – Alide Hire Services

We have been using HL Training Services for the past 5 years for our in house counter balance training.The standard of training has always been first class, tailoring the course to fit our requirements. All the instructors are very knowledgeable and understanding when it comes to delivering the course content and always ensure that all course members get the required amount of attention for their needs. We have had instructors at our own premises and also sent delegates to be trained at HL’s depot. Both of which have proved to be highly successful. I have no hesitation in recommending HL Training to any organisation looking for top quality training.

FAQs

Is forklift training a legal requirement?

With any machinery, it is a legal requirement that all operators have received the relevant training and are able to operate the machinery with an appropriate level of ability. PUWER 98 states operators must always be adequately trained. In order to use a forklift truck legally, this training must be completed and the operator proved competent while operating.

Is forklift training a legal requirement?

There are many advantages to forklift training. The main advantage to this is the safety boost that comes with great quality training and the risk that is eliminated by having a team of workers that are properly and effectively trained to the desired standards. This also contributes to less damage to machinery, as well as increased operator confidence when using machinery.

How long does forklift instructor training last?
