Industrial Counterbalance & Telescopic Fork Lift 1 – 4 day courses
The duration of these courses ranges from 1 – 4 days, depending upon the experience of the operator. An experienced operator would require a 1 day course and those with little or no experience would require between 2 and 4 days training. If the trainee has very little experience with a fork lift but is a car and / or a tractor driver, he would probably be able to reach the required standard within 2 or 3 days.
