Why should I become certified?

To legally operate a forklift (or other powered industrial truck), you must first be certified. You, as an individual, can be fined for not complying with OSHA regulations. Of course, you may be interested in being certified so that you can get a job. Already having your certification will give you a definite advantage over those who are not certified when looking for employment.

In some cases, employers require certification before you can even apply for a job. The bottom line is, once you have completed your certification, you will have the knowledge and confidence you need to work safely and competently on the job.

I'm not sure if I need a certification, I only drive a forklift sometimes to help out.

OSHA law requires ALL employees that drive a forklift at any time to have passed certification training.

How long is the certification good for?

Do I need to take a driving test after I complete the online course?

You will NOT have to take a driving test at the DMV for this certification. The exercises that your trainer uses will give you the opportunity to sufficiently master safe forklift operation.

What types of vehicles are covered by this certification?

In general, any truck used to carry, push, pull, lift, stack or tier materials; this includes both rider trucks and those controlled by a walking operator. Some of the types of Powered Industrial Trucks covered in your training include:

    • Forklift trucks
    • Motorized hand trucks

What if I move to a different state, will I have to complete the training all over again?

No, your certification is valid in all of the United States and Canada.

What if I lose my wallet card?

We can reissue a card for $3.99. Simply click on the link below. You will need to enter your name and current mailing address; your new card will be mailed that same day. Request a new wallet card.

How old do I have to be to become certified?

You must be at least 18 years old to be certified.

Do I need a valid driver's license to become certified?

A driver's license is not required for certification, but you should be confident in your ability to safely operate a motor vehicle and have driving experience.

What forms of payment do you accept?

We accept all major credit cards.
