I recently completed my Counter Balance Forklift Truck training with both Shaz and David. They are very professional and being patient during the training. Shaz was the first instructor of my training, and he had shared a lot of his knowledge and experience with us. His knowledge and experience can really show when explaining different systems and how they work. We had time to practice operating the forklift in a controlled environment, allowing us to gain confidence and proficiency. David was the instructor of second day. He didn't mind to spend his own break time to provide us time to practice operating the forklift in a controlled environment, allowing us to gain confidence and proficiency. He pointed out all my mistakes in one go, tried to help me to improve my performance, and found my self growing in confidence more and more! On last day of training, Shaz had provided me a lot of time on practicing without stress. He had encouraged me and provided me with some more knowledge on different situation. Thank you for Everything!

Getting your forklift training on site has the advantage of operators being familiar with the actual equipment and types of loads they will be using in their daily working environment. There is also no wasted travel time or expense for the delegates, or you.

The benefits for companies who invest in fork lift operator training far outweigh the cost of any training course. Apart from meeting your health & safety obligations, a skilled workforce will result in a more efficient handling operation and less accidental damage. View our forklift training company bookings section for more details on accredited and non-accredited FLT training (in-house license).

Most of our training sessions are given to small groups of up to three people, but if you’d rather learn one-to-one, this can be arranged.

If you’re someone who prefers to learn in a familiar environment, or oversee your staff as they undergo their forklift training, we offer onsite forklift training in the West Midlands.

How much does the training cost?

We feel it would be unfair to list a range of prices that may not be necessary for the knowledge you require. We may either put you off with prices that are too high for what you actually need or leave you with hidden costs later on that put us out of budget.

Our forklift training in West Midlands is tailored to your needs and wants, as we understand that everyone has a different level of prior industry knowledge. The last thing we want is for you to waste your time going over the knowledge you already know!

Here at DW Forklift Training, we strive to have your course completed as quickly as possible, as we understand that any unnecessary delays can eat into your already busy schedule! But what we will not do is compromise on quality. We will always ensure that all knowledge has been taught to a thorough standard, so you can walk out of our forklift training in West Midlands. We also encourage the asking of questions and learning from those around you to make sure that you obtain the most knowledge possible from our forklift training. This way of collaborative learning has worked very effectively in all of our courses. Who knows, you might learn something valuable from one of your peers!

With this in mind, our courses are usually completed in six to eight hours (breaks included of course!). This gives us enough time to combine classroom learning with hands on experience, giving you an all-round picture of how to drive a forklift efficiently and safely. Once you have been taught by DW Forklift Training, we can assure you that you will become a skilled forklift driver in literally no time!

Be sure to get in touch with our friendly team of experts today to find out how we can help you become a better forklift driver with our forklift training in West Midlands.

A common misconception is that a licence to drive a car is needed to also drive a forklift, but this is not the case. After all, driving a forklift is a lot different to driving any other vehicle! Should you not have a car licence, don’t think that this counts you out of learning and passing our forklift training in Birmingham. We’re able to teach you from scratch so that you become a more than capable forklift driver and are able to pass our course and drive forklifts in the future.

In fact, many of the people that take our forklift course in Birmingham live in the city centre and don’t have a car licence, and we are happy to say that the vast majority of these students represent the trend we have company-wide. With exceptional pass rates, you needn’t worry about your driving experience when coming to us at DW Forklift Training.

The certification that you receive from DW Forklift Training will never expire, but this isn’t to say that you’re set for life! After all, important legislation may come into effect that may alter what you need to know to drive forklifts successfully and effectively.

In the past, we have found many people coming back to DW Forklift Training for a forklift refresher course in Birmingham under the guidance of their employer that would like them to receive the most up to date training possible.

Some companies prefer to have their employees re-certificated every 3 years to ensure the most relevant level of training, whilst others send their employees for high standards of training from us every 5 years. We are more than happy to oblige and offer the training required.
