The Electric Pallet Truck training course is available for people over the age of 17 whether the have a driving licence or not.
All our training is accredited under the national Trained Operator Passport Scheme (TOPS).
We offer 5-day novice course, 3-day intermediate course, 1-1½ conversion courses and 1-day refresher course for experienced operators looking to renew their licence in Ellesmere Port.
You will learn how to drive and control an Electric Pallet Truck to enable you to gain your basic Electric Pallet Truck License. This licence will enable you to drive an Electric pallet truck (EPT) for an employer and is valid for 3 years after which time you will need to undertake a One day ‘Refresher’ course.
Once you have gained the Electric pallet truck (EPT) Licence we also offer a ‘Conversion’ course to enable you to drive a ‘Reach’ truck, this will widen your options with employers who sometimes require a driver to be able to drive both types of truck.
Another option we can offer is a course to enable you to operate a ‘Scissor Lift’ – as it is now becoming illegal to use ladders to climb to heights, a licence to operate a ‘scissor lift’ will become a necessary qualification to work in factory maintenance departments and may open up employment opportunities in other areas.
