For workers who operate forklifts in warehouses, factories, or docks, forklift certification from an accredited forklift training provider is a requirement that employers need to see. Forklift instructors provide forklift training for people with different levels of expertise when it comes to operating forklifts. Depending on how many years of experience you have as a forklift operator, you can sign up for a course for novices, an intermediate course, or a refresher course if you are a seasoned forklift operator.
At RS Forklift Training, we provide seasoned forklift operators in the UK the opportunity to take a one-day-long refresher course and test, which will allow them to renew their forklift license. The licenses you receive after successfully completing the forklift refresher course will be valid for three years. Here are 3 ways seasoned forklift operators can benefit from our professional forklift training in the UK.
1. Renew your forklift certification
While RTITB forklift certificates do not expire, forklift operators are still sent for ‘refresher’ forklift training courses after a certain period time. Upon successful completion of the refresher course they receive a new forklift certificate. This ensures that you remain on the National Operator Registration Scheme (NORS) database of forklift operators in the UK who have received forklift training within the last 3 years.
RTITB accredited forklift certification usually lasts for up to 3 years in the UK.
2. Become better at your job
There can be changes in the type of forklift you use at your workplace as well as changes in company policy and working procedures. A refresher course will teach experienced forklift operators about best practices that have emerged recently and allow them to learn new techniques that they can use at work.
3. Safety first
A refresher course will allow forklift operators to keep abreast with new safety procedures in the workplace and learn how to carry out a proper forklift inspection to prevent accidents. Unsafe practices and careless drivers can cause accidents at work which can result in injuries, damages to the workplace, and heavy fines and legal action against the company.
