Is this a forklift certification?

Our course is your first step toward earning your certification. Per OSHA rules, only your employer can certify you—and this must be done at your workplace, on the forklift you will be operating. Our program gives you the fundamental training and tools you’ll need to be successfully certified on the job.

What types of forklifts are covered in this training?

A Washington Pilot/Escort Vehicle Operator certification allows you to operate in the following states: Washington, Utah, Colorado, Oklahoma, Minnesota, Virginia, Georgia, Texas, Kansas, Arizona, Florida, Pennsylvania, and North Carolina. Learn more in our article on Pilot Car Reciprocity. 

Note that some states have specific requirements regarding your driver license, insurance, equipment, or other details. Check the rules in the states where you operate.

Need help logging into your online P/EVO course?

Our course provides operators with the knowledge needed to operate safely on a class 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 forklift. We also have a Class 7 add-on for rough terrain forklift operators, which we offer as an on-site training.

How will I receive my certificate of training?

Once you successfully complete both the online self-directed training and the practical evaluation, you will be emailed a certificate of completion.
