Powered Industrial Lift Trucks (Forklifts) Training

On December 31, 1999, changes to the OSHA 29 CFR 1910.178 training requirements mandated that all operators of powered hand trucks and forklifts must receive certification every three years.

Our Powered Industrial Lift Truck (Forklift) certification course is divided into two parts. Part 1 of this course consists of a half-day’s worth of classroom instruction followed by a written examination. Part 2 consists of a hands-on driving evaluation at your facility. At the conclusion of this course, participants receive a wallet-sized certificate of completion.

This program can be tailored and customized to satisfy the needs of any employer.
