Reach Truck Training Course


The Reach Truck Forklift Training course is a comprehensive forklift course which contains both practical and theory based training. The duration of the Reach Truck Training course depends on previous experience with a minimum duration of 2 days, this is usually for those operators with previous experience but no formal training.

Anyone who is a novice would need 3 days training. After the initial training course, a one day refresher course should then be completed every 3 years, and re-tests can only be carried out if you can show evidence of previous training or certification.
