- It is essential that the participants are evaluated on the forklift equipment they would be expected to be used in the environment they will be working in. This is not a driving test where people will pass or fail but more of an evaluation of the operator’s skillset at the time of the evaluation.
- Some businesses may have different types of forklift equipment and require operator evaluations on each piece of equipment. As part of our standard forklift safety training, it includes an operator evaluation of one piece of equipment. Additional charges may apply if more than one piece of equipment is evaluated.
- In the case of participant(s) are attending one of our public training sessions, arrangements will be made that would see the trainer attending your workplace to perform the operator evaluation on a separate date. Again, this is included in the price of the course.
- If person(s) are attending one of our public training sessions and are not currently employed by a business, we do not have lift trucks on-site to practice on or to conduct an operator evaluation. However, we will provide you with a certificate indicating that if you get a job at a business, that we will send a trainer to that business and conduct an operator evaluation on your skillset and provide your employer with a record of training and documentation supporting the training that you have received. Again, this is no cost to your new employer.
