Forklift training

The operation of forklifts and material handling equipment (MHE) requires skilled operators.

Employees who are competently trained will save money with improved efficiency and reduce accidents. They will also operate more safely, protecting themselves and other people in their vicinity.

We use the latest training techniques – combining theory and practical exercises – leading to testing and certification.
