Should I choose RTITB Accredited forklift training or ‘In-house’ forklift training?

There are no laws stating you must choose accredited forklift training, however the major benefit to an employer is that they will have little difficulty proving the driver was ‘adequately trained in accordance with HSE L117 guidance, after perhaps an incident involving a forklift.

The benefit to an individual with an accredited forklift training ‘licence’ is that they will find it much easier to use their training record/licence on different sites and with different employers, who would find it impossible to check the quality of an ‘in-house’ licence. The advantage of a non-accredited licence is normally a lower price and shorter course duration, as it allows the instructor to customise the training to the benefit of the customer. We can offer both accredited and non-accredited but would always recommend operators gain an accredited licence where possible.
