Lift Truck Training
 (Driving Review)

The Evaluation Process
The lift truck training / tow motor evaluation driver safety review will involve the following: All lift truck drivers completing the "driver evaluation" must have successfully completed "concepts of safe & efficient driving" training. Each driver of an industrial lift truck will be tested in the safe and efficient use of your equipment. Lift truck training whenever possible will be done during production

This will allow us to do the trainee's' lift truck training evaluation under the conditions the drivers will be required to operate their industrial lift truck./ reach truck under. Upon successful completion of the lift truck driver operator training program, participants will be "Certified" as Industrial forklift drivers. Other lifting devices we can get your employees certified in includes pallet truck training, aerial lift training and overhead cranes.
