Forklift Instructor Training
The forklift instructor program is designed for companies that have an ongoing need to train operators, multiple locations, or complex operations. If your company has a qualified supervisor or safety officer then a forklift train-the-trainer certification class is a practical choice for you. This course is available at our Kirkland facility and can also be arranged elsewhere as needed to meet demand.
This one day extensive training session prepares instructors to train forklift operators in typical settings. The course covers pre-shift inspections, safety standards and regulations, and builds the confidence to present fundamentals in forklift operating. Students will be given the chance to teach back in the class in order to get constructive feedback on strengths and weaknesses as a new instructor. Students must come with experience on the equipment they will be training on.
Participants will receive:
- Instructor manual
- Electronic copies of presentation materials
- Instructor forms
- Inspection checklist examples
- Test with answer key
- Evaluation forms
Instructors are required to purchase student operator books/cards which are around $10 each.
