More information on our training center based classes (Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana)


For companies which work on varying job sites, have substantial operator turnover, multiple locations, or unique/complex operations, training a forklift trainer may be a good choice. This is not a seminar, it is a class where forklift trainers will earn the right to become trainers. Trainers will be provided, and expected to read, the applicable OSHA standards and will be tested on them, as well as conducting surveys of their site and equipment to identify areas where they can improve from a safety standpoint. Trainers also get to participate in a live classroom setting to see how high quality training is conducted. Class size is limited to a small number of forklift trainers in order to give each forklift trainer lots of personal attention. Forklift trainer's classes are held on a regular basis in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana, but if you need training outside of Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana we would be happy to bring our class right to your facility anywhere in the U.S. In addition, we also offer an optional, third day for those desiring to cross train as aerial work platform (Scissor and boom lift) trainers.
