Course Types.

Novice: Suitable for persons who have no previous experience or have not operated for a long period of time.

Existing: It is anticipated that persons attending this course will have had some previous experience (possibly self-taught) and will be familiar with the steering characteristics of the machine.

Refresher: This is suitable for persons who hold a current or recently expired certificate/licence. You will have had regular use of the type of machine you will refresh the licence for and have a good knowledge of LOLER and PUWER.

Conversion: You will currently hold a current ticket for one type of truck and then convert that knowledge into learning the different characteristics of your selected machine. You don’t have to have held a current certificate for a specific length of time before undertaking this training. For example, you can learn to operate the Reach truck immediately after successfully gaining your qualification to operate a Counterbalance.
