Sandwell, UK – March 16th, 2022: A specialized vehicle like a forklift, which is widely used by businesses in different sectors ranging from construction to healthcare to manufacturing to heavy industry, requires skilled drivers who have been trained to operate it. RS Forklift Training is one of the leading institutes providing specialized forklift training in the United Kingdom. For over twenty years, they have worked with companies as well as individual clients who come to them seeking forklift certification from an RTITB accredited forklift training provider.
A company that has trained countless British workers for both the public and private sectors, RS Forklift Training, has earned its reputation as one of the country’s premier forklift training providers. Their courses include one-day refresher or re-certification programs for seasoned forklift operators, three-day training courses for workers who have had practical experience of twelve months or more handling forklifts but have had no formal training and need a license, and five-day training courses for workers who wish to get a job as a forklift operator and need to obtain proper forklift certification from an accredited institution. There are also conversion courses that workers can complete in one or two days. In addition to these courses, the company also offers Bendi lift truck training which teaches forklift operators how to operate Bendi trucks. These vehicles are typically used in warehouses with narrow aisles, which can be tricky for drivers to maneuver vehicles.
The course content for the Bendi lift truck training classes covers all the safety legislation that has been issued with regard to narrow aisle pivot steer truck training for drivers. The modules in each training session cover theoretical, pre-operational, and practical tests. Upon successfully completing a Bendi lift truck training course, each trainee will be issued an RTITB accredited certificate and an ID card. Both these things are included in the registration fee that candidates pay for the course.
To facilitate their workers, the company has set up training centres in many cities across the United Kingdom, including Coventry, Birmingham, Leeds, Solihull, Wolverhampton, West Bromwich, and Wednesbury. Their courses remain accessible to workers in all parts of the country. The affordable prices of the courses ensure that no worker who wishes to obtain a forklift license is left behind.
What’s more, the company also hires RTITB proficient instructors from eastern European countries. A company representative explained the rationale for doing this to us: “Many blue-collar workers in the United Kingdom come from Eastern Europe and are not always proficient in English. We believe that a language barrier should not be a reason that prohibits them from gaining the best forklift training the country has to offer, so many of our instructors are able to conduct training sessions in other languages besides English to facilitate workers who are not fluent in English.”
RS Forklift Training offers both in-house training and training in their own forklift centres, which are located in different places across Britain. Many companies request in-house training for their workers; this means that training will take place on company premises with forklifts that belong to the company. “Businesses often want their workers to be trained on-site because this way their training will take place on the vehicles that they will be using on a day-to-day basis,” the company representative explained to us. “Along with offering courses in our own training centres, we can also conduct training sessions on-site for companies who prefer that option.”
Apart from forklift training courses for workers, RS Forklift Training also offers instructor training courses for those forklift operators who wish to use their skills to train other workers how to use forklifts. Their instructor training programme allows companies to have their own qualified forklift instructors to reduce costs as they will no longer need to outsource their forklift training. Upon successfully completing their instructor training, all qualified forklift instructors will be able to instruct and examine operators within their own company. Training as a professional forklift instructor can also be a smart career move as it can help individuals embark on a lucrative and fulfilling career as a recognized RTITB instructor. The course for forklift instructors offered by RS Forklift Training is fully compliant with the approved code of practice issued by the Health & Safety Executive in the United Kingdom.
With the instructor training course that is offered by the company, experienced forklift operators can train to become RTITB Accredited forklift instructors and examiners in a period of 10 to 12 days.
