Forklift Operator Training
This four-hour class provides participants with the basic skills and knowledge to operate a powered industrial truck (forklift) in a safe, efficient manner. The first three hours consists of classroom instruction that covers 22 topics required by OSHA followed by a written test. The last hour consists of hands-on driving practice. Participants that pass both portions receive a certificate of completion from Equipment Depot at the end of class.

Employer certification means that the employer states that the employee is competent to operate a powered industrial truck per OSHA regulations.
