Custom Operator Certification
Our Custom Operator Certification program for forklift, aerial lifts, loader and excavator are delivered at your site using your equipment. Trainees receive in-depth instruction on applicable regulations and safe operation as well as extensive hands-on exercises. Each trainee’s knowledge and skill level is evaluated and only those able to demonstrate an acceptable level of operational competence receive documentation of successful program completion.
It is well known that forklift training has been and will continue to be a focus for regulatory authorities such as OSHA, with its stringent and specific safety training requirements, but did you also know that the forklift training requirements laid out by OSHA for forklift training also provide an excellent template for training on other pieces of equipment like aerial lifts, loaders and excavators? Find out how you can achieve the highest level of regulatory compliance in all of your in-house equipment safety training.
