What You’ll Learn From Our Forklift Training Class
Our forklift training occurs under the direct supervision of experienced personnel, and consists of a combination of formal instruction with lectures, video tapes, practical training, and an evaluation of the operator’s performance in the workplace. Our training covers topics such as steering and maneuvering, visibility, fork and attachment adaptation, operation, and use limitations. Read on to find out what each aspect of the curriculum entails.
Part 1: An Overview of Forklift Driving & Safety Practices
During the first portion of the class, we’ll explain how to properly and safely operate a forklift. Since safety is of the utmost importance, we’ll explain how to perform a thorough pre-trip safety inspection. From leak checks and tire tread to the chains and the horn–we’ll make sure you know what parts of the forklift to examine before every ride.
Part 2: Hands-On Driving & Safety Evaluation
Most people learn best by doing.That’s why during the second part of the class, we’ll put your knowledge and skills to the test! We’ll have you perform a pre-trip inspection, and then we’ll have you drive a forklift: an experienced trainer will thoroughly evaluate your forklift driving abilities, and If we notice mistakes, errors, or weaknesses, we’ll demonstrate how they should be corrected.

This is a great place to go for CPR and other EMS training. I renewed my CPR card here and it was the easiest and quickest experience I've ever had renewing my card. The instructor, Shah, was great. Very nice, well knowledgeable, and even delivered my card to me at home in person. He didn't make the class drag on at all or boring in anyway..got right to the material, went through it well and promptly. The online course was very helpful as well. A big plus. I highly recommend this place if you're looking for a really good CPR class.
This has been the most SATISFACTORY service provider I have ever dealt with. Joe came into our office and installed a brand new cabinet, organized everything, cleaned up our mess, and trained us on how to move forward. Feeling really confident and OSHA approved!! 🙂 Very professional service and we have had them coming into our offices for over 3 years now. I would recommend this company to anyone with corporate offices and employees. Thank you, Unishield!
We had to use our AED yesterday and we saved the person’s life. I wanted to thank your company for the training that you gave us. It worked!
As Lead Logistics Coordinator at our warehouse, I've needed to add various upgrades to keep in compliance with Cal-OSHA, as we've been growing exponentially in size this past year. We use Unishield at our business and they have continued to provide excellent service at a competitive price for all our First-Aid needs. Very reliable 5-Star service matched with on-time delivery. HIGHLY RECOMMEND
I wanted to let you know that I sent the check out today for our workshop that we had Friday. The instructor you sent was really fantastic. Not only was he extremely knowledgeable, but he clearly was passionate and, even after the training, stuck around a little to help make some safety recommendations with regard to our current setup around the office/our current supplies.
I wanted to thank you for scheduling us at the last minute. Everyone loved the training and had great things to say about the instructor. We’ll definitely call you again.
Your instructor was fantastic. He was knowledgeable and made the CPR class interesting and fun. It was probably the best training I had attended.
