What the reach truck training course entails?

All reach truck training courses include both classroom theory and practical experience with the reach forklift truck. These courses adhere to the Approved Code of Practice and advice of the Health and Safety Commission. This means that you, as an employer, are fulfilling your legal duties to ensure that all reach truck drivers receive sufficient training.


Forklift Training recognizes that everyone has a distinct learning style. As a result, our courses employ a range of approaches to accommodate all learners. To keep everyone engaged, we utilize forklift models, movies, PowerPoint presentations, workbooks, and hand-outs. Each session is then concluded with a series of questions to check that all knowledge has been grasped.


The theory work progresses gradually, providing time for the material to sink in before going on to the next step. After demonstrating practical courses, learners are given ample time to practice under close observation.

Reach Truck on-site training

We also offer reach truck training at the premises of clients. This gives learners the benefit of being educated and graded on a machine with which they are already familiar. As a consequence, they will not have to re-learn on another vehicle after their initial training. After completing this reach truck training, operators will be able to utilize these devices safely and efficiently.


We are delighted to give customized training sessions to fit your company's specific needs. We will always work around your requirements and the surroundings to create as little interruption as possible.

Infrastructure is necessary

To begin, and most significantly, we must use your reach truck to finish your reach truck training. Pallets and actual loads related to your business are advantageous; the instructor will supply a range of traffic cones.


During theoretical classes, we require ample space for the teacher and trainees to work. It is adequate to have a small office with a table, chairs, and power. All forklift workers must wear safety boots and other personal protection equipment, according to the company's own risk assessments. They have high-visibility vests available.

Reach truck authorization certificates

Drivers who finish this reach truck course are fully licensed to operate this type of vehicle. The qualification is both nationally and widely recognized in the business.


Drivers will also receive the following:


  • ITSSAR-approved A4 reach truck certificate of basic training

  • A plastic identity card with a photograph.

  • A written assessment of one's own strengths and weaknesses
