We regularly review our lessons and listen to feedback so our courses keep getting better. We keep up on any changes in the industry to ensure our training complies with the latest legislation.

Our forklift courses are all delivered by enthusiastic and knowledgable instructors. This knowledge comes from many years working in warehouses and using lift trucks. These real-life situations helped form the basis of our lessons.

Whilst we do our best to ensure all operators pass our courses. Our courses aren't just about passing a test but readying operators for day to day forklift use. We are happy to spend an extra hour or two to get the right result.

ITSSAR is the accrediting body for our forklift courses. This means that the certifications and qualifications you’ll receive will be recognised and accepted throughout your industry. We are visited every year to ensure we continue with our exceptional standards.
