This blended forklift certification course will teach you the fundamental skills to operate a sit-down vertical mast forklift. Whether you are an inexperienced operator looking to become certified for the first time, or an expert operator just needed to renew your license, the blended training option is great for everyone. You will cover important topics such as how to safely operate a forklift with pedestrians around, how to perform a pre-operational inspection, how to refuel, and how to safely lift and lower loads.
You take your safety seriously, and so do we. That’s why we have designed this course to meet OSHA safety standard 1910.178 for forklift training and the ANSI standard B56.1. This course was created to reduce the risks to people, products, and the environment that are associated with operating a forklift.
Blended training is the most flexible way to acquire OSHA and ANSI equipment operation certification. Certain laws require operators to complete practical in-class assessments before they can become fully certified. We’ve blended the benefits of online training with the legal requirements of practical assessments to create the most stress-free method of training.
Simply complete the theoretical training online at your own pace from the comfort of your home (choose either our English or Spanish theoretical training). Once you’ve finished that, you can contact your closest Lonestar Forklift location to register for your practical assessment or check our online calendar. There are several convenient locations to choose from throughout Texas to complete your practical assessments: Austin, Houston, Dallas, Fort Worth, Midland, and San Antonio.
The following topics will be covered during your forklift certification:
