What is Telehandler and Forklift training?
This training course is designed for Skid Steers (Bobcats)/Telehandlers/Variable Reach Forklifts. This is a two day course, and is ideal for workers in industrial construction, residential construction, as well as oil and gas workers who use these machines. The two day course is much more in depth than many other 8hr Variable Reach Telehandler Training courses, and is designed to create competent workers.
Why is this course important?
Telehandlers / Skid Steers / Forklifts, are commonplace on many construction sites, however untrained workers are at risk when they operate the lifts.
