Courses start every week, every day, Monday to Friday and occasional Saturday's. A counterbalance forklift has a heavy weight at the rear to counterbalance the weight carried at the front. Hence the name 'counterbalance forklift truck'. It also has a different fulcrum to the reach truck. A reach truck is used in more confined spaces and has the mast reaching out to collect the load. Hence the name 'reach truck'. This course provides training to those to wish to operate these safely and effectively. Certificates and Photo Cards are available for proof of qualification.
Training is available to anyone aged 17 or more who is physically and mentally fit. Our courses are designed to help you learn everything needed to obtain your qualification with free theory questions and answers for our customers.
