Forklift training

Forklift training with Carl Wright Training Services delivers practical skills and theoretical knowledge allowing candidates to operate in compliance with HSE requirements. Before you can operate a forklift, you will need to have completed comprehensive forklift training. Once you have completed your training will you be able to hold a forklift licence and operate a forklift.

Forklift Operators play a crucial role in the smooth running of business operations, with this course giving you the skill and expertise to be able to drive a forklift.

Whether it be operating depots, warehouses, yards, ports or airports – without Forklift Operators goods and deliveries would not be loaded, unloaded, moved or stored, and as result, the production of a business would stop. To be able to operate a forklift, a forklift licence is required. Technically however, there is no such thing as a forklift licence but a lot of the time it is commonly referred to as that. In actual fact, when you are qualified you will receive a Certificate to show to your employer. Many employers will look for experienced and trained forklift operators before hiring. Legally, every employer has a responsibility under Regulation 9 of the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 to ensure staff have adequate training before they use work equipment. Having the relevant forklift training ensures you stand out and are knowledgeable and qualified to operate a forklift.

Why do I need forklift training?
There are three types of forklift training courses available. Novice, Experienced and Refresher. The course you enrol on depends on your previous experience in operating a forklift. Before being able to hold a forklift licence, forklift operators will have to enrol on one of our forklift training courses.

Why do I need to do a forklift training course?
Being a forklift operator is a complex operation and therefore requires the operator to have the knowledge to ensure that they can operate a forklift safely and efficiently. A trained operator ensures that the forklifts are used safely and for the tasks they were designed for. Additionally, their productivity is high because they can cautiously move the forklifts at a much faster speed. Forklift trucks have the potential to injure or kill people if operated by employees who are not competent to do so. Having forklift training ensures the forklift operator is competent and capable to do their assigned role.

Novice Training
The novice course is for those who have never operated a forklift before. This is an introduction to forklift operations and will cover everything from forklift legislation, to forklift health and safety regulations. This is course is recommended for those who are looking to becoming forklift operators.

Experienced Training
This course is for those forklift drivers who have already completed the novice forklift training and currently hold a forklift licence. On this course you will learn more about the mechanics of forklift operations, including forklift attachments and how they affect forklift characteristics.

You will also cover the forklift load-handling theory and the forklift operators’ safety code. This course is recommended for those who are already forklift operators and wish to learn a more advanced way of operating a forklift.

Refresher training
While not mandatory, it is recommended that course refreshers are undertaken every 3 years once you have completed your training and received your forklift licence.
