What will you learn?

FLT Training near ChesterYou will learn how to drive and control a Counter-balance Fork Lift Truck to enable you to gain your basic Fork Lift Truck licence. An FLT licence will enable you to drive a Counter-balance FLT 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 Counter-balance Licence we also offer a ‘Conversion’ course to enable you to drive ‘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.
