During these courses the tutor will assess the trainee in both the theory and practical operation of Counterbalance Forklift Trucks and Instructional Techniques. Successful completion of these assessments will enable the trainee to become an Approved Instructor and to issue Certificates of Training on Counterbalance Forklift Trucks and any others that they have been certified for. Registration lasts for five years after which a re-registration course is required and available from NTS.
Course duration: ten days for the initial course and five days for the re-registration course.
Before the course commences candidates must produce evidence (certificate) of their successful completion of a full-length training course for Counterbalance Trucks plus a certificate issued and dated within the last 12 months from their employer or other responsible body to show that they have been operating that equipment competently for at least six months. If this condition cannot be met, we recommend our two-and-a-half day Basic Refresher course which includes the required operator test and this course must be completed successfully six months prior to commencing the instructors’ course.
Within the first two days of the Instructor training course, the trainee will need to pass a test of operating skill to instructor level and the remainder of the 10-day course will primarily deal with instruction of forklift truck operation. Please be advised that all trainees will require four passport-type photographs and their National Insurance number.
