Courses Refresher Course / Operator Re-certification
According to the Ontario government regulations, trained forklift operators are required to complete re-certification every 2-3 years to maintain their qualification with mid-term evaluation. Re-training is also required in the event of the following:
  • Accident / near accident

  • An observation is made where the fork lift is used in an unsafe way

  • An assessment indicates that extra training is required

  • Changes in the workplace presenting new hazards
  • Operators are upgraded to newer or different models / types

  • After passing of three years since the initial certification

The Refresher Course consists of 5 hours of in-class theory followed by a practical skills assessment in a warehouse setting.

Topics emphasized in this course include:

  • Safety and health hazards

  •  Legal rights and responsibilities of forklift operators

  •  Troubleshooting for common problems

As well, we will revisit the basics:

  • Fundamentals of powered lift trucks: components, factors affecting stability, load centers, rules and regulations

  • General operating procedures: circle check, start-up, shutdown, forward/reverse on level ground, parking; safe operating around other people

  • Load handling: selection of loads, load pickup and placement, load stability and integrity, loading and off-loading of trailers

  • Operational maintenance: re-fuelling and battery recharging

  • Workplace safety: identifying potential hazards, environmental conditions affecting lift truck performance

  • Separate training on handling propane can be included in this course upon request

After completing the training course, each operator’s theoretical knowledge and skills will be assessed using a multiple-choice questionnaire test and practical evaluation of their ability to operate a forklift truck in a safe and efficient manner. Upon successful completion of the evaluation, each operator will receive a wallet size photo ID license and Certificate of Achievement.
