Course Summary

Lift Trucks and mobile equipment accidents are preventable and unacceptable. Their widespread use requires that individuals working on, and around, lift trucks recognize hazards associated with the equipment and the environment in which lift trucks are operated.

In order to receive a certificate of competency, the participant must achieve a passing grade on the written in-class test, and they must pass the practical skills evaluation. The practical skills evaluation is to be performed at the participant's workplace.

Equipment Evaluation

In order to receive your certification, the course portion of the program needs to be completed as well as a practical equipment evaluation. A charge of $75/person applies for each evaluation. Additional charges may apply if multiple devices are evaluated.
