VNA Truck Training

Very Narrow Aisle trucks are used for stacking loads, medium and high-level order picking or, in some instances, both functions.

Their unique feature is their steering method. VNA trucks are normally only steered by the operator when transferring from one stacking aisle to another. Once the truck is in the aisle, it is automatically guided by wire or rail to allow optimal precision and control in an extremely narrow environment. Operation of the VNA truck requires high levels of skill and precision while working in tight areas.

The Course

Our VNA training course will allow the candidate to operate the VNA forklift truck efficiently and effectively, maintaining the highest quality of operation. Upon completing this course, the candidate will have acquired the skill set to safely operate the machine. They will be able to carry out necessary inspections and understand the impact of weight distribution on truck stability and safety.

We also provide a full range of forklift operator training.

Is a forklift license a requirement?

There is no such thing as a forklift license per its definition, and you will not require a forklift license for operation. However, once you pass a forklift operators course, you receive a certificate of basic training that qualifies you to operate a forklift. This is a legal document that, along with valid authorisation, physically allows you to operate a forklift. Despite a physical forklift license not existing, we can offer an ID Card to accompany your certificate to prove you have completed the course.

What is unique about VNA Operator/Man-Up trucks?

VNA Operator-Up forklift trucks are unique pieces of machinery in which the operator will go up and down in correlation with the forks on their truck. This allows for full and clear shelf visibility and precise manoeuvering at height in a narrow space. As the operation of this forklift truck requires a high level of precision and control, training can immeasurably enhance the operator’s skill set. This can create higher levels of control and efficiency in your workplace.

How long is the course?

The duration of the course ultimately depends on your current skill level. The duration of the course ranges from a 1-day refresher course up to a 5-day intensive and comprehensive training course. Each course is designed for different skill levels, meaning you’ll find the perfect course for you that integrates perfectly with your current experience and skill level.
