Existing Operator Certification Course
This course is designed for the individual with lift truck operator experience but has had
little or no formal training. This program will be specifically geared to your application and

provide the attendee with a Certificate upon successful completion of both theoretical and

The hands-on portion of the program is where trainees are shown the pre-use inspection,
