Counterbalance Fork Lift Truck Training

About the course

Counterbalance Forklift Truck Training provides fully accredited operator training for both those who have never operated a forklift before and experienced operators who require a refresher course.

The counterbalance lift truck is the most commonly used type of truck and is found in nearly all workplaces that require the use of a lift truck; this course also offers great civilian employment opportunities.

With this course, delivered by our partner A1 Roadcraft, you’ll achieve the nationally recognised civilian Counterbalance Operator licence, and your details can be entered on to the National Operators Registration Scheme database (NORS) for three years, allowing potential employers to see your licence online. For those in the military, your FMT600 will be endorsed for use in the military role.

On completion of the course, A1 Roadcraft will issue you with your licence (valid for three years) and a certificate from RTITB; a nationally recognised training board. These are valid throughout the UK and are recognised by both employment agencies and employers.
