This course covers Class 7 – Rough Terrain Forklift (RTF). If you
own more than one type of RTF, no problem, we cover each piece of
equipment with no extra cost to you. All course attendees must go
through practical testing on each RTF at your workplace.
Taught from a self-paced Forklift Operator’s theory book, which is provided.
Basic principles and main components of the lift truck, operator’s responsibilities, physical requirements, driving hazards, forklift safety, understanding the load chart and safety symbols.
Basic principles of operation: Start up and shut down procedures, turning, working on inclines, Lift truck and load stability factors.
Proper load handling: lifting and lowering loads, working on rough terrain, railway tracks, knowledge of various fuel types and more.
The theory portion is finished with a Class 7 Forklift theory test, which the operator must pass.
The classroom segment generally takes 90 minutes.
Forklift Practical Test
The practical portion of the course involves a pre-shift inspection of the Lift Truck and "Hands-On" testing on the equipment of each participant.
Participants must pass both the theoretical and practical tests in order to get their forklift operator certification.
Successful participants will receive a wallet and wall size certificate.
The certificate is valid for two years.
Your company will be provided with all the relevant paperwork as proof of training.
This course covers the safe operation of Lift Trucks as required by WorkSafeBC Section 16 and CSA standard B335-94.
This is not a, how to operate a Lift Truck, course. Course attendees must have at least 6 hours of supervised experience on the equipment or be experienced operators before taking the course.
Many operators think their certificate is a forklift license; there is no such thing as a forklift license.
WorkSafe requires proof of training. A certificate and records showing training are substantial proof.
