Our innovative blended learning format includes both online and in-person training elements.
First, you’ll take a self-directed online course with seven modules and a knowledge exam.
Next, you will attend an in-person practical training session where you’ll receive coaching and evaluation from our master trainer.
Upon successful completion, you’ll receive a Certificate of Training that can be printed out or stored digitally on a mobile device.
Our forklift training is fun, fast, and effective. Our course leads you intuitively through all the steps to becoming an operator. Watch our getting started video to learn more!

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