rtitb launch forklift training app for android

RTITB forklift training appRTITB is set to transform the future of materials handling equipment training and assessments with the launch of MyRTITB TrainingFriend PRO – an Android app which makes the training administration and testing process completely paperless for the very first time.

The app is the first of its kind and runs on 7-10” Android tablets and works with and without Wi-Fi. Both candidates and the instructor use tablets which communicate with one another, so there is no need to print test papers, records of training, registration forms or any other paperwork. Everything is captured via the app, saving an average of 5 hours administration time per training course.

“In working closely with training providers, both commercial and in house, it became very clear to us that a completely paperless solution for training administration and assessment would be hugely beneficial to our industry, both in terms of cost reduction and time savings,” explains Laura Nelson, Managing Director of RTITB.

“MyRTITB TrainingFriend PRO has been developed specifically to support businesses and instructors, ensuring that they can meet their training paperwork and compliance needs, as well as ensuring the accuracy of the data collected and tests administered,”

Laura continues. " It is easy to switch over to paperless training and assessment and RTITB will be providing full support to those using the MyRTITB TrainingFriend PRO app, which covers training for more than 120 types of machine. Instructors can use the app for counterbalance, reach, rough terrain telescopic and pallet truck training, plus training for powered access equipment (MEWPs), lorry loaders, cranes and many more".
