Onsite Training

All the courses above can be completed within our simulated warehouse or on the customer premises. If the training is to be completed onsite, the following will be required:

  • Suitable area for practical training. This must be away from the working environment to stop any interuptions during training
  • An office or classroom. This is so the theory section of the course can be completed with no interuptions.
  • Sole use of the lift truck. When training is to take place on site, the instructor will need the use of the lift truck all day, therefore other arrangments must be made prior to the training commecning.
  • The LOLER certifcate. The instructor will request this to ensure that the lift truck being used is maintanced and in a safe working order.
  • An area for stacking. Ideally this would be a section of industrial racking that the instructor can have sole use of during the training.

If you have any queries regarding onsite training, please do not hesitate to contact our booking team.
