We only provide the finest forklift training! GUARANTEED!

Intensive Course (2 days)

With a maximum of only six students, we offer intensive forklift training on the sit-down counterbalance forklift, and propane.  Our full  two-day course includes one complete day of comprehensive classroom instruction on the dynamics and safe operating practices, and a second complete day on practical tutoring, hands-on instruction, and practice.  With so few students, you receive more than adequate time to learn how to use the forklift. You will be taken through each step of our practical test throughout the day. Once you have completed all the steps and are comfortable, we test you. This course is called intensive for a reason. If you are a new operator, or even an experienced operator and want to better your forklift skills; this is the course for you. This course is also tailored to you if you are applying to different forklift jobs. If you put Forklift Operator on your resume, you better know how to operate one.

Lite Course (1 Day)

We offer a milder version of our intensive course in a one day format. This is geared towards individuals who have been trained previously or to anyone looking to get their forklift certification in a lighter format. In this course, you will have the classroom instruction for four hours.  Yes, the theory is shortened to half a day from our intensive course. You will still learn all the engineering dynamics and the safe operating practices of the forklift. We just omit other less pertinent items that are included in our Intensive Course. Once completed, we will break for lunch. After lunch you will be shown the practical steps that need to be completed. The practical test is in a shorter format, geared towards the basic functions of the forklift, and still utilizing safe operating practices.

Our practical sessions will either take place indoors, or outdoors, depending upon climatic conditions. Whether you are novice, rusty, or experienced, we will definitely educate you, and improve your current skills, so you can be the best you can be.

We sincerely care about the health and safety of the operators, and those working around them.  For the absolute finest forklift training in the region, make the wise choice, and choose Ideal Forklift Training as your educator on powered industrial forklifts.

We are not the cheapest, but competitively priced. Not all training is the same, and courses differ widely amongst all the training firms. Our courses are longer in duration than anyone else's for a reason, and that is to provide you with the best training, both classroom and on the forklift.  If you truly want to LEARN  how to operate a forklift, and you want to return home safely each and every night, there is no reason to look any further as we can provide everything you need to become a safe and productive forklift operator.  No use getting trained, and not know how to use a forklift, as many others come to our course because they have been certified but still cannot use a forklift. If you are looking for the finest training, you have come to the right place.  We actually teach you and work with you to achieve success.

 We teach because we care, and so should you!

These courses are ideal for those individuals and businesses with a limited number of staff to be trained, seeking the proper training that is required by law.
