LEVELS OF TRAINING
This is a brief outline of the training times required for different skill levels for most types of MHE.
For refresher training on most types of forklift trucks times vary from 4.5 hours for a single delegate to 7.5 hours for the maximum of 3 delegates.
This can vary slightly for some types of vehicle but is a pretty good rule of thumb.
Experienced operators and conversions.
These times can vary quite widely and the courses are aimed at people who have plenty of experience using the truck but for one reason or another have never been tested by an accredited trainer, or for those who have been trained on other types of MHE and are expanding their skillset.
Novice training is aimed at complete beginners or those who have had only a few hours of practice. This starts as a 3 day course for one trainee, 4 days for two and 5 days for 3 trainee's.
This is true for most types of rider operated lift trucks with only a few exceptions.
