About Forklift Training UK

Forklift Training UK (FTUK) is a Nationwide Training company dedicated to providing quality training that enables our trainees to get the job done right. The safety of our students is as important to us as the safety of our training college and its good name.

We are a team of committed, positive and successful people who are always striving to be balanced, integral and honest. We will work within our Company Culture Statement to make sure that everyone who works with or is trained by the FTUK team, will benefit greatly and in some way move closer to becoming the person they want to be or achieve the goals they want to achieve.

We are in the business of Education. We will educate ourselves, our trainees and all those whom we work with, while we train them and create a fun learning environment. We will train our trainees in the latest safety and machine operating techniques using power point, video, other technologies and simple workbooks, workshops and seminar formats.

Types of forklift training we provide

Counterbalance Forklift Training

This is widely used in various environments including warehouses and storage depots with a reach of up to 20 feet and has a counterweight to balance the load on the fork arms. The fork arms and load project out from the front of the machine. Loads can be raised or lowered vertically and the mast may be tilted forwards or backwards up to 15° (but in practice more usually about 5°). A wide range of attachments are also available.Check Counterbalance Forklift Training section for more information.

Reach Truck Forklift Training

These trucks are used predominantly in warehouses and where space is restricted. They are called reach trucks because the mast is moved forwards or reached out to pick up the load. For travelling, the load is reached back and carried within the wheelbase which allows greater manoeuvrability. A height of 40 feet can be reached from this type of forklift. We make sure that you pass before you leave our training centre. Check Reach Truck Forklift Training section for more information.

Telescopic Handler Forklift Training

They are used mainly in agriculture and the construction industry and although still a forklift they can also have a variety of different attachments including bucket, pallet forks, muck grab, or lift table. This is fitted with a boom that is pivoted at the rear of the machine which is raised and lowered by hydraulic rams. In addition, the boom can be extended or retracted (telescoped) to give extra reach or height. These machines may be two or four-wheel drive, and have two-wheel, four-wheel or crab steering. Check Telescopic Handler CPCS Training section for more information.

Moffett Forklift Training

Drivers with a lorry licence can expand their skills and job prospects with a Truck Mounted Forklift Certificate, known as a Moffett Mounty. The Transportable Lift Truck is attached ‘Piggy Back’ style to the rear of the truc, which you then hitch or un-hitch (mount/dismount) from the host vehicle and use the machine to load and unload cargo. If you already hold a forklift certificate, a conversion course is 2 days and if you already have moffett experience as well this could be reduced to 1 day Check Moffett Forklift Training section for more information.
