Luft Training Services are an Independent forklift truck training centre offering Cherry Picker Training Course. We train operators on, Cherry Pickers, Counterbalance, Reach, Bendi, Side Loaders, rough terrain, electric and manual pallet truck plus many more.

The Cherry Picker Training Course is not in any way an option for companies operating Cherry Picker trucks on its property. Regulations require all employers to take reasonable steps to ensure the safety among their employees, but courts are always going assign liability to managers and companies who fail to ensure their workers have been correctly trained and hold the appropriate certification.

Cherry Picker Training is available to businesses and individuals across West Sussex and East Sussex to include Chichester, Bognor Regis, Littlehampton, Worthing, Lancing, Hove, Brighton and all surrounding area’s. If you are not sure if we cover your area please call us or use our contact form page as ember of the team are always happy to assist you.


It’s a well known fact that there are companies out there which offer Cherry Picker Training courses on a pay monthly cost, this involves signing up for finance and usually incurs a very high interest rate and in some cases a deposit.

Normally these companies do not train their pupils direct and ultimately request quotes from companies like us. At Luft Training Services our Cherry Picker Training costs are both competitive and low so you can afford to go direct.

Training information

Cherry Picker licence training is accredited to RTITB. Luft Training Services accreditation to RTITB is assessed annually and subject to the standards outlined by the body for Boom training and other courses covered by the training body.

Candidates complete practical exercises under observation and an assessment of competence to achieve a Cherry Picker license. Learners must also demonstrate knowledge by completing a theory examination. Following successful completion of these assessments, a photo ID card Cherry Picker licence is issued to candidates as well as a Cherry Picker certificate.

The Health and Safety Executive recommend that refresher Boom Lift training should be considered every 3 to 5 years dependent upon the operational risks involved with the activities.

The RTITB Boom Lift course can be delivered in a working environment. Luft Training Services trainer/assessors will incorporate practical tasks meaning candidates are able to undertake Man Lift training on jobs they are required to complete in their normal working day. For reference during Cherry Picker courses, the manufacturer’s instructions for the MEWP should be made available to the Luft Training Services trainer/assessor.

Cherry Picker training cost depends on where the course is delivered, either at our training centre in Littlehampton or at you own premises.
