The theoretical session involves Video presentations, situation analysis discussion questions and a final assessment multiple choice exam as well as an assessment in the practical session


  • How will the subjects be taught?
  • We first find out what the employee already knows about the forklift operations
  • We put the employees at ease. Make the learning environment as comfortable as possible.
  • We motivate the employees. Get them interested and involved in the training program
  • We involve the employee in the discussions and demonstrations of forklift operations.
  • We Use audio visual material or actual demonstrations to convey new information, operating techniques and/or procedures.
  • Instruction will be slowly, clearly, completely, and patiently, one point at a time.
  • Checking effectiveness of training material by asking employees questions about forklift operations.
  • We make sure the employees learn.  Ask them to repeat and explain key points.
  • We coach and assess the employee's performance afterwards through the practical session


  • After the course participants will be able to identify and implement the operational techniques that will ensure  max safety for the operator and pedestrians, increase productivity, prevent damage to both the material being handled and the working area, prevent accidental damage to the forklifts and ensure the equipment will be maintained and always kept in proper working condition
