Let us now discuss some of the common questions on vehicle-mounted training
How long is a truck mounted forklift course?
If you’ve never operated a forklift before, you’ll begin with a 3-5 day Novice Course, at the end of which you’ll receive accreditation. For experienced operators, the timeframe for truck-mounted forklift truck courses may be shortened to 2-3 days of formal training.
We also offer 1-day refresher courses for operators looking to renew their certifications post-expiration and 2-3-day Conversion courses that allow credentialed operators to easily obtain further certification.
What do you do on a truck mounted forklifts course?
Our truck-mounted forklift truck courses are centred around familiarising students with safe MHE operating practises and protocols, particularly those pertaining to the application of vehicle-mounted lifts. A typical course consists of both classroom-style instructions and hands-on training in skills such as loading, inspection, close-quarters maneuvering, and accident avoidance.
Do you need to have a licence for truck mounted forklifts?
While all prospective drivers must obtain certification through the RTITB or another accrediting organisation (ITSSAR, ALLMI, NPORS, or AITT) in order to operate a forklift legally, vehicle-mounted lifts don’t require special licensing.
How long does a truck mounted forklift license last?
When issued in the UK, a truck-mounted forklift training license lasts forever. That said, the HSE recommends that all operators take a refresher course every three years to renew their certifications, regardless of their cumulative experience or specialisation.
