Forklift Operator Training



Our Forklift Operator Training program is a comprehensive, in-depth training course that teaches safe operation of industrial forklift equipment.

We offer classes both at your location, and at our locations in Youngstown and Akron, Ohio. Please visit either of our dealerships or call 888-375-0829 for more information about forklift operator training. Scroll down to find our daily inspection forms and forklift safety posters to help your employees operate forklifts safely and encourage lift truck awareness in your warehouse.

What our forklift operator training class includes

Visit our Forklift Safety Resource Library

If you have not been certified in 3 years or more or ever, or you have been in a forklift related accident or infraction, you need to take a re-certification course.  We offer re-certification courses for operators who have previously been certified, as well as full course for un-certified operators.

When everyone is one board you can operate a safe and productive facility.  It is not good enough for operators alone to understand these principles of safe forklift operation. It is important that those in charge also understand them in order to make sound judgement about when training is needed. Read about forklift refresher training on OSHA's eTool.


Visit the OSHA website to find informational materials directly related to forklift operator safety training. You can also visit OSHA's Powered Industrial Truck eTool to learn more about operating forklifts, warehouse safety and lift truck training.

Before you put an employee on one of your lift trucks, you must fully understand their level of experience, what equipment they've operated, what conditions they have operated those forklifts under and what, if any, additional training is required to ensure that they are ready to operate YOUR lift trucks under YOUR specific conditions.

Our Forklift Operator Questionnaire helps walk you through the process of asking the questions that will help you determine a plan of action for training your new, or current operators.
