Paid hands-on training. Competitive compensation. Opportunities for rapid advancement.
These are just a few of the many benefits of Eastern Lift Truck Company’s (ELTC) unique and exciting Forklift Technician Apprentice Program.
The goal of our Forklift Technician Apprentice Program is simple: attract, train, and develop talent for our Service Department, throughout our seven-state Mid-Atlantic region. To this end, we offer a comprehensive solid core education that many are able to complete in just 4 to 6 months. Our optimal candidates come to us with varying levels of mechanical skills, and all share a strong work ethic and the desire to learn how to properly and safely, service and repair forklifts and other equipment.
Since launching our program we have hired more than 75 Technician Apprentices from a variety of backgrounds. While preference is given to those who are able to demonstrate some equipment maintenance and repair abilities, such as recent trade school graduates and automobile mechanics, we have also offered spots in the program to delivery drivers, prison guards, farmhands, restaurant industry workers, and others. Although each candidate has joined us with different skillsets and experiences, we have seen a 90% success rate with individuals who successfully complete our Forklift Technician Apprentice Program. It is exciting to watch them earn the opportunity to become a forklift technician and enjoy a successful, long-term career in the material handling industry.
