    Forklift Operator Certification

    Forklift operator certification training programs can improve and reduce injuries in the workplace. Employees must know the safe operation of forklifts and performance of the equipment. Our forklift training gives the operators the knowledge to operate safely and reduce accidents which cause downtime. Forklift accidents cause injuries to operators, workers on the job site and even people nearby. The majority of accidents are caused by human errors which is a big safety risk. Accidents can be minimized or prevented through proper crane operator training and certification programs that meet the latest OSHA requirements.

    All Purpose Crane Training provides specialized forklift operator training for sit down, stand up and telescopic forklifts. We also do training for both electric forklifts and propane forklift trucks. Replacing forklift batteries and propane cylinder training can be added on in the training course. Training is offered at your location or anywhere in the United States. If available to you forklift operator certification training can be done online from your desktop or laptop computer. Safety is our first priority. Call and get scheduled in a forklift class today.
