Membership with IVES includes the invaluable addition of an IVES Certified Trainer to your company who can competently deliver, document and administer the site and equipment-specific initial, refresher and upgrade training and evaluation required for your forklift, aerial lift and loader operators on an ongoing basis.

When your company qualifies someone as an IVES Certified Trainer through one of our programs it can immediately start reaping the many benefits that come as a result of safe powered industrial equipment operation. Benefits that  include: the enhanced safety, health and morale of all personnel who work with or around the equipment, the peace of mind that accompanies compliance with federal, state and / or provincial occupational safety and health regulations and lowered business operating costs due to the reduction and / or elimination of numerous revenue-consuming factors associated with equipment related incidents like production down time, material and equipment damage, regulatory citations, worker’s compensation insurance premium increases and possible legal litigation.

Membership benefits also includes many valuable resources for your company to build an effective, comprehensive and customized in-house equipment operator training program. This includes exclusive products at discount pricing, access to free, downloadable support materials and documents, ongoing technical and administrative support from our knowledgeable trainers and staff, plus more!
