Forklift Training

This 2-day training course will teach you to properly and safely operate a forklift. The program will use both theory (classroom) and practical (on the forklift) learning. The class begin at 9.00am and runs until 3.00pm on both days (with appropriate coffee and lunch breaks... bring your own food and/or there is Starbucks and Subway across the street).

The cost is $199 [cash or cheque (payable to G.I.D. Pro Services)]  - receipts will be issued by the company.

Students are required to wear CSA approved safety (steel-toed) leather boots ("gumboot" style not accepted)... all other safety equipment will be provided. Students must be at least 15 years old, but do not need to have a driver's license as they will only be driving on private property. Students are covered by WCB. The training will happen both indoors and outdoors, so dress appropriately.

Depending on the location and forklift availability, students will learn on both electric and gas (propane) forklifts. Presently the training is done at CBR Products (876 Cordova Diversion, Vancouver - see map link on right). Students who pass the exams will then be certified for two years, ideally, for both types of forklifts. Part of the day will be driving the forklift outside, so dress appropriately. Class size is limited to 6-7 students.

October 20 + 21, 2017 (Pro-D day + Saturday) = open to any student
