Atlas Forklift: On-Site Forklift Driver Training

Atlas Forklifts

On-Site Driver Training

Forklift Driver Training Delivered by Experts

We’ve been providing forklift trucks for businesses of every type since 1986, and in that time we’ve established a broad ranging expertise which covers every aspect of working with forklift trucks. From selling, hiring and leasing the trucks themselves to providing breakdown cover, maintenance and servicing, we provide a genuine one stop shop for anyone who depends on forklift trucks for the operation of their business. The support we offer our clients doesn’t end when a truck has been purchased, and that includes training the drivers using those forklifts to ensure legal compliance and completely safe operation.

We’re developing an in-house training facility but presently all of our training is delivered on-site. Our instructors visit to deliver 3 and 5 day courses with the minimum of disruption and the maximum impact. Everyone delivering training on behalf of Atlas is RTITB (Road Transport Industry Training Board) accredited and brings with them a wealth of hands on experience of working with counterbalance and reach forklift trucks.

The key to the training we offer is flexibility. Rather than providing a rigid programme of training we tailor each package to suit the needs of the client. Although some forklift drivers may have received basic training in the past, and certification which enables them to use a specific forklift in a particular setting, the accredited training offered by Atlas will provide certification which enables trainees to legitimately operate a forklift truck anywhere.

Basic Training

Our basic training courses run from 3 to 5 days and can be delivered to a maximum of 3 participants simultaneously. The nature of the course is such that it can take someone with no experience operating a forklift and certify them – once the relevant tests have been passed – as a qualified forklift operator. The course involves a blend of practical and theoretical training, designed to provide a thorough understanding of the safe operation of a forklift truck within a working environment. The practical aspect of the course is such that, by the end of the training, each operator will feel confident in their ability to operate a forklift truck in situ.

Refresher Training

Our refresher training is designed as a one day course for those operators who have been trained previously but now need to re-certify.

In addition to basic and refresher training we can tailor conversion courses designed for operators who have been trained on the use of a specific forklift, and now wish to advance to being RTITB accredited in the use of any forklift.
