Onsite Forklift Training, In House Forklift License Training
If you're looking for a company that offers forklift training for safety compliance and forklift license purposes, you are in the right place. For our onsite training, our OSHA compliant forklift trainer will come to your worksite and take care of the training. If you need more than forklift training, that's no problem. If you only need forklift training, that's also no problem. Get your workers trained for OSHA safety compliance. Our trainer will travel to you from Rexburg, Idaho (travel costs are included so 5-10+ trainees are recommended) to train your workers on your own equipment. On-Site Training is a great option if you prefer not to do your own classroom training or online training. This forklift training system is taught by our experienced OSHA Compliant trainer professionally and quickly. You can find a complete list of our training topics on our topics page.

In House Forklift License Training FAQs
Can we send an employee to your site for training?
On occasion, we do host classes at our site. But we prefer to travel to your site. The reason for this is that, technically, forklift operators should be trained on the equipment they will be using and on a job site that is close to, if not the actual, job site they will encounter day in and day out. If your forklift operators work on docks or vessels, in warehouses, or on a construction site, receiving training in a classroom and then hopping a machine in a parking lot may not suffice. At the same time, no one knows their employees, equipment, and a site like employers. OSHA places the ultimate responsibility to train operators and trainers on the shoulders of the employer. We are simply a resource for you to use, and we like to discuss the training as well as the employee needs with you before, during, and after the forklift training.
How many students can we have in our on-site hands-on forklift training class?
We do not necessarily like to place a limit on the on-site training class without knowing the situation. Ultimately it depends on the level of experience of the operators, as well as how we decide to structure the class based on your needs. Typically, though, we do not like to stay around 12-15 individuals in a class. This allows us the time we need to focus on them individually. It will also give them extra time on and around the machine during the hands-on training portion of the class. There are always situations that call for exceptions though.
Do you offer any online forklift train the trainer classes?
Yes, we do offer online forklift train the trainer courses. While it does not allow for any actual time around the equipment (which is not required for trainer certification anyway), it can be a very cost-effective way to go and save you on travel expenses, etc.
How do you structure your in house health and safety training classes?
This will depend on a number of variables. Typically, though,
- We start with a classroom portion
- Followed by the written exam
- We then spend the rest of the time on and around the machine (which includes the required observation portion, also called the practical exam).
However, since the ultimate responsibility to approve training falls on you, the employer, we like to make you a part of the decision process. If you want us to spend more time outside on the machine, then we can do that. If you want us to go into more detail on theory, we can do that too. This is your company, your employees; and we are simply here to help you get them trained in the most effective way possible.
What do we get with the onsite forklift training classes?
At the end of the operator on-site training classes,
- We leave you with all of the records you need to prove OSHA-compliant training.
- Every operator also receives a full-sized certificate.
- While wallet cards are not required by OSHA (contrary to popular belief), we can also supply wallet cards for the individual operators.
- Train the Trainer trainees will receive the same documents with an additional safety training kit which contains all of the materials they need to put on their own safety training.
Is an onsite, in house, or hands-on Forklift Train-the-Trainer class required by OSHA?
There is a lot of confusion out there though, and many companies think TTT classes are required. Bottom line, though, they are not required by OSHA. Some companies may require their trainers to receive trainer certification, but that is up to them. In the end, as is the case with operator safety training, the responsibility to designate a trainer falls on the shoulders of the company itself. If OSHA were to come in, the employer would simply need to prove why they chose the trainer they did (because of years of experience training, operating, etc.). Trainer training certification by a recognized third party, such as Hard Hat Training, also comes with prestige.
What if I cannot afford the onsite forklift training system?
We are happy to offer train the trainer forklift classes. However, if you do not have the budget, you may consider purchasing our training kits. These contain all of the forklift training materials we use when we certify operators via onsite heavy equipment operator licensing training, and they are yours to use, reuse, and customize to put on your own operator training class in-house. They even come with instructor notes.
