Why Become A Forklift Operator?
Forklift jobs are regularly advertised for £21,000 per year or more. A forklift licence can provide the vital step needed to get you into a job. A forklift licence will also provide extra job security to people already in work and may be a key requirement before progressing to supervisory positions such as warehouse manager.
With the internet highway in full flow and products available at just the click of a button, an increasing volume of goods are being transported on a day to day basis, throughout the world. Camera equipment for a film set, food for supermarkets, baggage for the millions who go on holiday each year or gifts for Birthdays, Christmas, Weddings and all other occasions - all examples of goods moving at a faster and faster rate. Transportation may be by plane train boat or lorry - whichever mode of transport - you can be sure a skilled forklift operator has aided the smooth transition of goods from one to the other.
We provide training for a wide variety of sectors, from events management, to airport services, to warehouse and logistics. With a forklift licence, you could work in an industry of your choice. Whichever you choose, you can be sure it will be a fast paced environment.
Which Course Is Right For Me?
We have a strong record of providing training to a number of industries including warehouse and logistics, airport services and event management (e.g TV/Film sets and Music Tours). We also work with a number of not for profit organisations, back to work schemes and other charities.
We can deliver training to people with varying levels of ability and experience. It is your level of experience and whether of not you have had any previous official training that will dictate the course that you require.
