Individual Forklift Certification
The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 includes a provision that states, “only trained and authorized operators will be permitted to operate a powered industrial truck.” The 1-2 hour online forklift evaluation training course will allow you to become a certified forklift operator in compliance with OSHA laws.
Complete the entire training in 3 Easy Steps:
Read the OSHA rules and regulations before taking the test.
Take the Test online. Take the test an unlimited number of times without paying again. You ONLY pay ONE TIME period!
PRINT your Certificate from your computer or any other computer.
After completion of the training, we will send your Forklift License within 3-4 days to the address you provide. Your wallet card (license) is valid for 3 years. Also after you have completed the online training, your employer or future employer should evaluate your forklift driving ability. Your employer or future employer will certify that you are competent to operate the employer’s forklift and follow all the rules laid down by OSHA. Forklift certifications expire 3 years from the date of your last evaluation. Once you get certified, your employer must re-evaluate you every three years.
Someone else can purchase the training for you using their information on the credit card. However, make sure to use your name when creating the profile.
Individual Forklift Re-Certification
The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 requires that Forklift Operators MUST complete the Certification every 3 years. Also the Forklift Operator should receive a refresher course any time the operator is involved in a near missed accident or in an actual accident. Therefore, if you already have your certification and are looking to renew your forklift license you need to start the process again by creating an account and purchasing the training. However, it will be much shorter and easier for you to complete because you are have already been operating a Forklift for some time. Please go here to begin your Forklift re-certification.
