Training on Customers Premises
Many employers choose on-site training , using this approach staff are trained on the equipment they will actually be using and with the loads they will handle. Up to THREE trainees of similar ability may be trained at the same time
If on – site training is preferred, our instructor will require the following facilities to be in place:
- A Forklift Truck in safe and sound working order, available for the complete duration of the course
- A supply of stackable loads and empty pallets, set aside from the main working area and preferably under cover
- Access to a room in which the theory sessions can be peacefully conducted
- Uninterrupted attendance by all trainees throughout the entire course.
