All of our courses are available to individuals who are looking to gain certification as a Forklift Operator. 

The novice courses are designed for operators with little to no previous experience and are RTITB-accredited to comply with the standards set in accordance with the HSE Code of Practice L117.

We are also able to provide refresher and conversion training, and certification for experienced drivers, for both Counterbalance and Reach Forklift Trucks.

If you are an organisation looking to provide forklift training to your workforce, then we can offer a bespoke service tailored to your requirements including non-accredited and in-house options. Contact Rachel Graham on 01636 611320 / rachel.graham@ambitionspersonnel.com for more details.
