Course Options

Armstrongs knows that assessments can be stressful and nerves can sometimes cause students to make simple operating errors.

Those who select this courses will be assumed to have existing forklift operating skills and knowledge in the areas of pre-start and post-start operational checks, operating a forklift at safe speeds, assessing loads and weights, moving and placing loads, and forklift shut down procedures.

Armstrongs Express forklift courses include only one attempt to to pass your practical operating assessment.
