Forklift Training in Charlotte


If you are looking to receive forklift certification in Charlotte, consider the operator training program at Carolina Industrial Trucks. As one of the leaders in the industry, our goal is to provide the best in operator training, understanding that this knowledge is key for brand-new operators and those looking to upgrade or reinstate previous training.


Our trainers are among the best in the field, ensuring our operator training in Charlotte is high-quality and safety oriented. We provide our trainees with all of the important skills needed to benefit their employers, and to add on to their own resumes for job hunting purposes.


Through our forklift training you will learn about various aspects of forklift operation, from common causes of accidents and incidents and how to avoid them, to the hazards of operating a forklift. You will also learn safety procedures operators should always follow, proper forklift inspection procedures, safe driving techniques, and more. We cover these subjects using both hands-on instruction and classroom training so students have every opportunity to fully understand the information shared in the course.


Because government regulations are so important to health and safety compliance, Carolina Industrial Trucks spends a portion of the training time teaching this subject. Trainees leave our program understanding government regulations and what must happen to stay in compliance with these important rules. Our training program enables all trainees to finish feeling confident and able to make safe decisions.


At our training facility for forklift certifications in Charlotte we employ the latest in techniques and information so that trainees are always on the cutting edge of technology and industry knowledge. This means you will leave our training program with the skills that are extremely valuable to employers, instead of worn-out information that is too far out of date to be useful.


At the end of forklift training, attendees take the National Safety Council Forklift Operator Test and are issued a certificate of completion.  Among other provided materials, trainees also receive a personal copy of the North Carolina O.S.H.A. Industry Guide #12 (Forklift Operator Training). This ensures that everyone going through Carolina Industrial Trucks’ operator training in Charlotte has all of the information they need on hand to safely operate a forklift, even after the class is over.


Our complete and comprehensive program meets the high standards both we and our clients set. We understand that our customers have a reputation to uphold, just like us, so we focus on providing the best of the best. We are a reputable, reliable company with copious experience in the field.


Whether you are an experienced forklift operator looking to improve your forklift training, a forklift operator who wants to teach others by obtaining your own forklift training skills, or a brand-new, inexperienced operator starting your forklift certification from the beginning, Carolina Industrial Trucks can help.


Our training program can be modified to meet anyone’s needs. Whether you need individual training for someone new to forklift operation, a refresher course for all of your operators, or a training course so that someone from your company can go back to your home base and work with new operators, Carolina Industrial Trucks is happy to work with you.


Any forklift operator program can result in a certification, but ours will give trainees every piece of knowledge and information you need to be safe and companies the reassurance that an operator trained by Carolina Industrial Trucks has been trained with care. When you see that an employee or prospective new hire has been trained by us, know that they have been trained by one of the best.
