Our experienced operator counterbalance courses are perfect for operators who have already acquired the basics of forklift operation. This maybe for several reasons for example:
Trained on a counterbalance in-house but left without a certificate
Using counterbalance trucks for years but have never had formal training
Used counterbalance forklift trucks abroad but do not have a UK qualification
Learned to operate a counterbalance forklift years ago but have not operated one since then
The experienced counterbalance operator courses can be conducted at our training centre or on-site at customer premises.
We teach all the basic skills that form the foundation for safe counterbalance forklift operation and future conversion training.
The courses are typically 3-day courses conducted with a maximum of 3 trainees, however courses can be conducted over a shorter duration with fewer trainees:
2 Trainees can be trained on a 2½ day course
1 Trainee can be trained on a 2-day course
DMP courses are accredited by the Independent Training Standards Scheme and Register (ITSSAR), recognised nationally for Counterbalance Forklift Training.
We set out to teach as much as possible on our experienced operator courses, utilising our resources to their full potential and covering as many gaps in your operating ability as possible.
Our experienced operator courses teach:
At the end of the course each candidate receives an ITSSAR operators’ certificate of training and a photographic operator’s card.
