re you looking to fund your training yourself?

Whether it is a refresher course you are looking for or want to learn how to operate a forklift from scratch we will have a course to suit your needs.

At our training centre we have counterbalance (B1) and reach (D1) trucks as well as a low lift order picker (LLOP).

The course you need will be dependent on your current level of skills and experience.

The courses we deliver are:


Novice - this course is for candidates who do not have any experience in using any type of rider operated lift truck.

Experienced Operator - this course is for candidates who have experience of using a lift truck but may not have had any formal training OR for candidates who have overseas certificates OR for candidates who have been formally trained and tested but have not been tested in the past 5 years.

Refresher - this course is suitable for candidates who have been trained and tested within the past 5 years and have up to date experience of using the truck.

Conversion - a conversion course is for candidates who have a certificate to operate one type of fork lift but want to add another eg counterbalance converting to a reach.

How much will this cost? Our standard rate is £110 per day plus VAT (£132 in total).

We are required to register all candidates directly with the accrediting body, ITSSAR. This does incur a one-off fee of £5.50 plus VAT (£6.60 in total). Should you prefer RTITB accredited training the registration fee is £6.95 plus VAT (£8.34 in total).

SPECIAL OFFER - we are currently offering a package deal for a counterbalance and reach novice and conversion course. The course takes up to 7 days for both trucks and the total price is £625.00.

Due to the popularity of these courses we deliver these monthly.

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic we are limiting the number of candidates on each course to a maximum of 2.


Upon booking we do require a 50% non-refundable deposit to secure the booking. The balance is then due on the first day of training.
