Forklift (Class I - VII)
Please Note: To better serve you, our Powered Mobile Equipment curriculum is being redeveloped into a Blended Learning Model which will combine online training with on-location operator evaluations. This transition requires a temporary interruption (approx. 4 months) of the delivery of our Power Mobile Equipment Operator and Trainer level courses. We apologize for any inconvenience to you and your organization.
A competent forklift operator knows and practices safe operating procedures at all times. Because of the variety of models and work environments that these machines can be used in it is extremely important to learn the safety essentials for the forklift and environment you will be working with.
This Forklift course is designed to introduce new operators to the theory behind safe operation of a forklift and to apply these theories in practice in a controlled environment. The course also serves as an excellent review for experienced operators.
- Legislation and regulations
- Understand the responsibilities of a forklift operator
- Understand employers safety responsibilities

Legislation requires that students receive a minimum 16 hours of training and we will work with you to meet that requirement in either a 1 or 2 day course.
