The Forklift Training Courses We Offer

At Charles Wilson Engineers Ltd, we offer accredited forklift training courses with nearly 20 years of experience delivering exceptional training. We specialise in Telescopic Forklift Training courses and Counterbalance Forklift Training courses for people of all skill levels. The training instructors we use are accredited to AITT (Association Industrial Truck Trainers) and we offer our training to those of school leaving age, although we generally recommend 18+.

Charles Wilson Engineers Ltd offer novice training courses, refresher courses, and training for those with experience but no license. After completing your forklift training course, you will be awarded an industry-recognised certification. As part of this certified course, you will be able to learn about operating a forklift and understand the importance of forklift safety.

Our training courses are conducted from our convenient location in Hayes, Middlesex. We also offer on-site training as long as your site has the correct facilities and equipment. This includes our Counterbalance training, which you can undertake either at our centrally located training centre or on-site at your own premises, providing the criteria is met. We also offer on-site Telehandler training, with the same stipulations. Call our Training Centre on 0208 756 6310 to find out more.

Full training is available for a variety of levels, from the novice trainee to the fully trained operator refreshing their certificate. The 1 day course and the 3-5 day course all include elements of both theory and practical to ensure you gain the correct certification. The 3-5 day course covers both theory and practical in depth, with a theory test at the close of the course. The refresher course includes some theory but with a heavier focus on the practical knowledge of the trainee. Our course can be completed on-site.
