We also like to announce the new eTruck UK:

When the Covid-19 pandemic lockdown began, Rs Forklift Training was able to quickly acquire eTruck licenses so that disruption to planned Novice Lift Truck Operator training was minimised.
Rs Forklift Training was able to continue to deliver Lift Truck theory training, but with no risk of infection or social distancing challenges to overcome. This was important as Novice Lift Truck Operator training accounts for around 30% of the training business.

With theory training taken care of remotely, RTITB Instructors also had extra capacity to deliver practical lift truck training. This helped training delivery from falling too far behind schedule, even though courses could initially only be delivered on a 1:1 basis for safety reasons.

We have the best forklift training centres in West Midlands and we offer our services with latest teaching methods and high standards. Counterbalance Lift Truck, (Electric, Diesel, LPG), Reach Lift Truck VNA (man up, Man down), Order Pickers, PPT, and Bendi-Flexi are just some of the lift trucks among many that we train our candidates in.
