    Frequently Asked Questions

    Isn't the online course enough? Do I need to attend a driver's appointment to receive my certificate?

    According to OSHA (
    1910.178(l)(2)(ii)), an operator must have both formal and practical training to become forklift certified, so you must complete both the online instructional course and the driving appointment to receive your OSHA compliant operator’s certificate from Lift Operator Training. 

    I’m an employer. Is there anything else I need to do to ensure OSHA compliance?

    Yes. Each workplace is different and this course covers the most common conditions and hazards. As an employer, you must ensure your operators are aware of your specific equipment, workplace conditions, and hazards. Be sure to keep a record of these discussions.

    Can a trainer travel to my workplace and perform the driving appointment for multiple people at one time?

    Yes! Many of our partner locations are willing to travel to your workplace if you have a group ready to complete the hands-on driver’s training. After your entire group has completed the online course, contact your local driving partner directly. They can be found using the driving center locator on this page.
