Apart from the Employer’s legal obligations, its makes sound business sense to ensure Supervisory
Management are trained to recognise safe forklift truck operation and application at the workplace. Supervisory Management need to be aware of the lifting and handling capabilities of the forklift trucks under their responsibility and control, as well as the importance of pre-use safety inspections, scheduled servicing and thorough examinations of this lifting equipment. In conclusion, trained Supervisors can have an immediate impact with forklift truck safety at the workplace and as a result reduce operational running costs!
1 Day – Forklift Truck Safety Awareness for Supervisory Management with a maximum of 6 delegates per course.

Very happy with the fork lift training delivered on site. I’d happily recommend Ace Trainers. Kevin Holden
Thank you so much for your help today, you’ve been fantastically responsive and accommodating.
The course was tailored to our needs which was fantastic because we had one complete beginner, one person with a little experience and one person who just need a refresher. Even with these very different levels of experience the candidates found the course easy to understand. All candidates passed the course and the course which was fantastic. The tutors were friendly and very knowledgeable. We would definitely recommend this course and it was excellent value for money!

Roy & Marianne Edwards,
Hi , just a quick message to say that today we had Ryan take a course for 3 of our staff on counterbalance forklifts. The feedback I have received is that the course was delivered very professionally and a lot of new information was shared . Our on site training facilities were used to deliver the theory test which Ryan will now be familiar with . I would like to say we were impressed by Ryan and any further training we require within the Millcroft group we will contact you for a quote .
Very Professional and a very helpful Company customer service seems a thing of the past but not for Ace Trainers Would recommend ,Thanks you for helping me pass my Drivers CPC Course
The service was excellent from point of contact all the way through to the actual training itself We will be using Ace Trainers again
Thanks to Ace Trainers we were booked onto a course with very little notice (thanks to a cancellation) at a very competitive price. The level of instruction was very thorough and our novice fork truck driver was very comfortable with the training. All round; extremely pleased with the service provided.
