ISM Training Services specialise in providing accredited training for both private and business customers to ensure they can provide quality Forklift training to their staff. This course is for experienced RTITB- accredited forklift instructors or previously IIPMM-certified instructors who need to renew their qualification or require refresher training to reach examination standard. Read our forklift Frequently Asked Questions or learn more about our Forklift Training Courses.
An RTITB qualification lasts for a period of 5 years, and updated training and re-examination are required to retain the qualification for a further period. Trainees will review the relevant health and safety legislation and code of practice and prepare to plan and deliver forklift training to the RTITB standard. This is an intensive course which requires a significant amount of study and will be assessed externally by an RTITB examiner. Trainees will avail of practical experience in ISM’s purpose-built Forklift Training Centre.
Our new purpose-built Forklift Training Centre is fully equipped with the latest Counterbalance, Reach and Power Pallet trucks. All ISM Forklift and Warehouse Training and instructors are accredited and approved by the RTITB.
