This 1.0 forklift operator camp is designed for people with limited or no experience!
A certified forklift operator can earn $15 – $20+ per hour in central Virginia and more in other areas.
Learn those skills here.
The first segment will consist of a written practice test, a two hour forklift information session, and final test.
The second segment will consist of learning to drive a Class 4 CAT forklift with a standard brake, inch brake, and three lever controls for lifting, tilting and shifting.
We utilize an outdoor operator course.
Attendees can pick and place empty pallets, loaded pallets, liquid storage containers, tires and more.
Learn to navigate in open areas as well as narrow aisle conditions.
The final segment – attendees must demonstrate the ability to complete a pre-use inspection.
After completing the inspection, operators will use our forklift and course to confirm their skills.
45 minutes are allowed to complete the inspection and skills confirmation segment.
Attendees who pass both segments of the class will receive a Photo ID operator badge and Certificate of Completion.
Our course meets or exceeds all Federal and State regulations and is valid for three (3) years.
Most students are able to complete and pass this course in one full day.
Additional practice times can be purchased in four hour segments (some people need extra time to learn!)
