Narrow Aisle Lift Truck Course

Course Introduction

This course is designed for participants to understand the engineering principles and safe operational practices of narrow aisle lift trucks, either man-raiser or standard ground-level-operated trucks.

Course Aims

To enable participants to acquire the skills and knowledge required to operate the trucks safely and efficiently and to take both theoretical and practical tests. The practical test will be based on the BRITTOp test, or an appropriate test devised to incorporate the operational use of the lift truck within the trainee’s working environment. The practical test will be decided upon prior to the commencement of the course, depending on a site survey or information provided by the company requesting training.
