ITSSAR Lift Truck Instructor - Novice

Developing the skills to train other operators in safe and industry recognised standard

Who is it for?

Larger organisations may have a number of lift truck operators and at times, it makes sense to consider having an in house capability to train lift truck operators. This ITSSAR accredited course is deigned to instil solid principles of practical and theory based training and is offered at two levels; a full Instructors course (10 days), for those new to instructing others and a re-qualification course (3-5 days dependent on the number of participants) for existing Instructors who must demonstrate they remain competent to instruct to current standards.

This course complies with the recommendations of the Health & Safety Executive’s Approved Code of Practice and guidance for rider operated lift trucks operator training and safe use (L117).

What will I learn?
  • Be able to demonstrate their ability to plan and prepare practical instruction to a minimum standard
  • Construct, conduct and objectively mark a practical test of operators’ ability to the HSE standard
