Lift Truck/Fork Lift Operation Certificate

Are you interested in both learning how to operate an actual lift truck as well as gaining an operator’s certificate of completion? Although OSHA requires all operators to obtain site and equipment specific lift truck training, Owens will provide training to students on a Class 4, internal combustion solid tire lift truck. This training incorporates both a classroom training portion as well as hands on operator training.  Forklift design, parts, operation, special driving rules, safety and maintenance requirements are discussed as part of the classroom training portion.
