The following pages describe the practical part of a forklift operator's training course. For theory lessons and pre shift checks please click the links on the left.
All of the lessons shown are practical in nature and usually follow the format of an explanation by the instructor followed by a model demonstration. The trainee(s) then copy this until their performance is judged to be to standard. It goes without saying that the instructor should be qualified to undertake such training and more details on instructional techniques and associated qualifications can be found by clicking the instructional techniques link on the left.
The duration of these lessons will obviously vary to suit the requirements of individual trainees but care should be taken to ensure that the minimum course durations as laid down by the accredited bodies are adhered to. As a general rule both the instructor and the trainee should be satisfied with progress before moving on to another exercise.
