Let Us Help You Find What You Need

  • Forklift Operator Training

    Making sure your forklift operators are familiar with the proper operation of your equipment is the best way to improve employee safety and prevent damage to your facility. We offer in-house operator training for all classes of forklifts, rough terrain equipment (straight-mast and telescopic handlers), aerial work platforms (scissors, booms, and man-lifts), as well as earthmoving and mining equipment (skid-steers, backhoes) at the following facilities: Allentown, Warminster, and York PA; Maple Shade, NJ and Baltimore, MD. We will also travel to your location for training along the East Coast.

  • Train-the-Trainer

    Our “Train-the-Trainer” course is intended for anyone who is responsible for training powered industrial lift operators. The course explains how to design a lift truck training program and how to present this program to your employees in a positive manner. We include all classroom materials, handouts and a sample post-test for a Basic Operator Training.

  • Technical Training

    This course is designed to introduce service employees, maintenance personnel or forklift technicians, with fewer than two years of formal experience, to the basic skills and requirements needed to safely service powered industrial lift trucks. We strongly recommend this course for anyone who has little or no background in forklift service work. It also serves as an excellent refresher program.
