Premier Driver Training - Forklift Training and Certification

The amount of formal training and workplace experience a trainee will need to operate a Forklift will depend on:

  • Existing skills and abilities of the trainee.
  • Trainee’s aptitude for operating the equipment, which could be different depending on factors such as age and length of time in the industry.
  • Trainee’s experience in simlar types of work, for example a person with a licence for the use or operation of similar equipment and experience using the licence will be unlikely to require as much training as a trainee that is new to the industry.

The Training Course Includes

  • Learning to operate the forklift.
  • Workplace Health & Safety procedures and legislative requirements.

The required equipment to undergo our forklift training

  • Enclosed foot wear.
  • Suitable attire.
