Counterbalance Forklift Truck Training from ACE Trainers

ACE Trainers are delighted to announce the opening of their new state of the art training centre on the 1st April 2013 at 13 Enterprise Court, Rankin Road, Basingstoke which will be providing best practice training courses for drivers of Bendi counterbalance and reach forklift trucks. Bookings for these training courses are already being taken and ACE Trainers urge all interested parties to contact them as soon as possible to ensure a place on one of their in demand training courses.

ACE Trainers are an RTITB accredited training company also recognised by the HSE, who offer the very highest standard training courses for both novice and experienced operatives of Bendi Counterbalance, Reach, Electric Pallet Forklift Trucks and Telescopic Handlers as prescribed in the HSE Approved Code of Practice (L117).

They work with companies in Oxfordshire, Devon, West Midlands, Berkshire, Surrey, Isle of Wight, Hampshire, Middlesex, Kent and Basingstoke providing training for both novice and experienced forklift truck operatives. ACE Trainers have recently found that their training courses for Bendi Counterbalance forklift trucks have proved to be particularly popular with the increased use of Bendi articulated four-wheel counterbalance trucks in the stacking of warehouse aisles that are limited in space, hence the opening of their new training centre to cope with this increased demand for training courses on the safe operation of Counterbalance forklift trucks.

ACE provides the following courses in Bendi Counterbalance Driver Training (BDT):

•1-day conversion course for a single experienced operator, already holding a valid license for any other type of forklift truck.

•2-day conversion course for three experienced operators, already holding a valid license for any other type of forklift truck.

•3-day basic training course for a single novice driver, with little or no warehouse experience and forklift truck driving ability.

•5-day basic training course for three novice drivers, with little or no warehouse experience and forklift truck driving ability.

On successful completion of their forklift truck driver trainings courses, ACE Trainers offer an RTITB photo ID certificate for an additional cost of £10.50 per person. This certification enables the participant to operate any counterbalance forklift up to a 5000 kg lifting capacity (with permission) anywhere in the UK. Their names and details are kept on a National Operators Registration Scheme Database (NORS) for 3 years. This certificate is optional, and if preferred by an employer they can also supply in-house certificates, only allowing the candidates to operate lift trucks/machinery within that company.
