Forklift Conversion Courses


ISM Training Services provide accredited Forklift Training for both private individuals and companies’ employees. Our new purpose built Forklift Training Centre is the best Training Centre in Ireland, fully equipped with brand-new Counter Balance Forklift Trucks, Reach Forklift Trucks and Power Pallet Trucks. All ISM Forklift and Warehouse Training is accredited and approved by the RTITB, IIPMM, FÁS, and RSA. Also, all ISM Forklift Trainers are fully qualified and registered by the RTITB and IIPMM.

Operating a Forklift is a specialised skill. Many accidents are caused by untrained drivers unaware of the Forklift's capabilities and limitations. Participants having completed an ISM Training Course will have the knowledge and technical skills to operate a Fork-Lift in a safe and competent manner as prescribed in Health and Safety Legislation.
