Forklift Training

If you want to operate a forklift in a warehouse or a construction site, OSHA requires hands-on training that results in a certification. Proper training for forklift drivers is not only an OSHA requirement, it improves safety and efficiency.

Whether you want to earn your first forklift license, need to schedule on-site refresher training for your operators , or wish to conduct your own forklift certification class, Total Industries has a program for you.

Forklift Certification

Without proper training and a forklift certification, it’s impossible to get a job driving a forklift. There are two parts to getting your forklift license: a classroom session and hands-on training.

Also, just as pilots are certified to fly certain aircraft, forklift operators are certified on a specific class or type of lift truck (electric versus gas-powered, for example). Our certification program takes approximately four hours, and students are certified to operate a  Class 4 forklift. Total Industries’s instructors have certified thousands of forklift operators to safely use a variety of forklift types and makes.

Forklift classes are offered monthly at each of our locations (East Bay-Livermore, Fresno, Sacramento, and Salinas). Learn more about forklift certification and training, or reserve your spot in an upcoming forklift class.  Class sizes are limited, pre-registration is recommended.
