We have 3 blended training courses to choose from at our Austin location: Forklift Certification, Telehandler Certification, and Mobile Elevated Work Platform (MEWP) Certification.
The Blended Training method combines online learning and practical experience to create a flexible learning experience. Did you know it will only take you 5.5 hours or less to complete a blended training course? Most of your learning will take place in the field gaining hands-on experience, as the online theoretical component is only 90 minutes or less.
A practical assessment, the second portion of a blended training course, is required by federal OSHA regulations to be completed every three years. Your safety is our top priority. That’s why we have selected some of the state’s most experienced equipment operation instructors to be our educators. At Lonestar Forklift, every student gets time on equipment! Depending on the number of other participants, the practical assessment will take up to 4 hours to complete.
