This course is ideal for those who already hold a forklift licence/certificate and want to convert to a powered pallet forklift. This could be someone converting from a Counterbalance to a Powered Pallet Truck. The length of this course varies depending on which truck you are already qualified in using and the type of truck you are converting too.
Similar to our other courses, you will need to complete three tests once training has been completed; a theory test, a pre-use inspection test and the practical skills test. All three of these tests need to be passed in order for you to achieve obtaining your certificate and operator card.
Course length could be shortened if the course is not booked at full capacity.
