A Forklift might be easy to “drive around” but is it easy “operate”? It takes very less time to learn how to drive a forklift but just because it’s easy to handle doesn’t mean safety shouldn’t be prioritized while operating one.
We at RS Forklift Training Birmingham strongly believe that an educated mind can result in a thriving future, eliminate possible losses and create a safe environment. We believe that if you have never driven a forklift before but wish to learn and earn a license, then lack of knowledge shouldn’t be an obstacle in your aspiration.

RS Forklift Training Specialists 

We understand the agony of suffering losses, whether it is a loss of expensive products due to manhandling or more critical losses like loss of lives due to carelessness or accidents. While operating a Forklift an operator needs to stay sharp and avoid any sort of damage to the goods or himself and other employees.

It is for this purpose that we have been providing top-rated forklift training for 18 years which meets all RTITB criteria and HSE standards. Our qualified instructors are experts in giving detailed education to the trainees and also provide impeccable on-site training at designated workshops for better learning. Our programs cover all types of forklifts like counterbalance, reach truck, side loader, pivot forklift and HLOP. We are credited with providing plant training and manual handling to many recognized industries.

Why choose us

Every year in the UK forklift accidents cause serious injuries to at least 1,300 workers, it means that every day 5 workers are prone to critical injuries like difficult fractures, amputations or in some cases death.

Keeping this in mind, this all-inclusive training program is designed especially for novices with little to zero experience and includes a rigorous classroom experience with discussions and written tests, on-site training and strict evaluation of all the components. Once a trainee completes the course, he/she will be presented with a forklift training certificate and shall be dubbed as an “operator”.

Offered Courses 

Our training centres are spread across the West Midlands and towns and counties like Walsall, Sandwell, Dudley, Oldbury, West Bromwich, Stourbridge, Coventry, Telford, Wolverhampton, Shrewsbury, Staffordshire, Warwickshire, Cannock, Lichfield, and Tamworth.

Our ability to create a superior and custom training program which suits the needs and capabilities of the customer at affordable prices remains unmatched. Our offered courses are very flexible and are as per the customer’s wishes. We provide morning classes and afternoon classes on weekdays and conduct weekend classes for those who cannot attend the weekday classes. Some employers prefer giving practical knowledge to their employees so we provide on-site training to their staff on actual company equipment with a heavy load which will be handled by them daily after the training.

Contents of the course

It is our responsibility to educate the trainee regarding every aspect of the course he/she needs to have all the basic, technical, legal and operative knowledge. If a person enters the training course with a notion that all he needs to learn is steering the forklift and move goods from place to place, then it becomes our job to let him know that if that would have been the scenario then there would not have been a training course in the first place.

Forklift training Birmingham includes much more than just teaching ‘pick and drop’ of things. Apart from all the operative work, the trainees need to learn all the regulations and laws involving this job. It allows them to learn about the guidelines while using any equipment at work. It will also teach them what role they can play in certain situations and avoid any legal problems. The training course includes the following:

    5 star review  Training was very efficient and detailed. The instructor would give detailed instructions and we got a lot of theory in the classroom with plenty of practice, in small groups so we each got a good amount of time on the trucks. The practical training was progressive, starting with detailed step-by-step instructions, then basic goals, and finally being left to put it in to practice ourselves.
