Do you need to complete forklift training in San Antonio? Maybe it’s time to renew your telehandler license. Lonestar Forklift is proud to offer several operator training courses to help you maintain your safety while at work. Operating equipment is a dangerous job, and we want to help you avoid all risks involved. By completing our OSHA and ANSI rated operator training courses, you will be able to keep yourself, your coworkers, and your environment free from harm.
We have 3 blended training courses to choose from at our San Antonio location: Forklift Certification, Telehandler Certification, and Mobile Elevated Work Platform (MEWP) Certification.
Blended training provides greater flexibility when it comes to your training. The course is broken into two parts—online theory training and a practical assessment. This style of learning gives you the chance to learn at your own pace for the theoretical portion and gain hands-on experience during the practical assessment. You can complete the online training portion in 90 minutes or less depending on the course. Our online training platform is available on all computers and most mobile devices.
You can register for your practical assessment as soon as you’ve finished your online training. This practical assessment is required by law in the state of Texas. Our San Antonio Lonestar Forklift location is proud to have the practical assessments run by experienced and knowledgeable equipment operators. Depending on the number of other participants, your practical assessment will take up to 4 hours to complete.
