We Train on two types of fork lift truck at our dedicated training centre in Derby:
Is the machine most people call a “fork lift truck” and is used in a very wide variety of jobs.
The standard Counterbalance course is for a B1 license and qualiﬁes the operator to use all Counterbalance trucks, three or four wheel, diesel, gas or battery, of up to 5 tonne lifting capacity. Please contact us for information for training on larger (B2) Trucks.
Reach Trucks D1
Are designed for use on smooth ﬂat ﬂoors and are less suitable for use outside than a counterbalance machine would be.
Industrial Reach Trucks are battery powered. Their name derives from the fact that the mast and forks can reach out to pick up a load and reach in again carrying the load partly within the length of the truck.
The Reach Truck course is for a D1 license and qualiﬁes the operator to use all standard electric powered industrial Reach Trucks.
These courses will cover not only the most effective ways to position the machine for transport and stacking but also all of the aspects of safety and stability
Training at our centre is always preferable, as it is an accredited and controlled environment.
We offer training for Reach (D1) and Counterbalance (B1) at our training centre and we are qualiﬁed to train on many other types of equipment e.g. Larger Counterbalance (B2) forklifts on your site.
On site training is quoted per course, NOT per candidate. With a maximum of 3 candidates per instructor.
From 2015 all candidates will be entered into the Trained Operator Passport Scheme (TOPS), a national online database recording individual driver certification.
