OSHA Compliance

Each student will cover OSHA standard 1910.178 regulations, including forklift operation, pre-operation inspection of the forklift and work area, fueling procedures and load handling. By the end of this course, students will be able to demonstrate practical forklift operation skills within the guidelines established by OSHA to receive a certificate of training completion.*

*OSHA mandate requires additional site-specific training for all operators of powered industrial trucks. This authorization for final certification is the responsibility of each employer.


Service Training

The ability to diagnose a problem and repair it quickly and effectively is critical to maintaining the uptime performance of a forklift and the satisfaction of our customer.

UniCarriers College of Technical Service was created to establish our authorized dealership service technicians as the most highly skilled in the industry by encouraging continued training, professional growth and technician recognition.

Technicians can achieve three levels of certification — Apprentice, Journeyman and Master Technician. Each successive level requires more education and carries additional responsibilities, including ASE certifications.

With an average of 25 years’ experience, our staff of technical instructors is prepared to provide comprehensive service training for your maintenance department on all the latest advances in UniCarriers engineering.


Train-The-Trainer Course

We will provide your company's trainer, safety department or supervisory staff with the proper tools to effectively train new powered industrial truck operators with the skills they need to operate their forklift in an approved and acceptable manner. By the end of this two-and-a-half-day course each student is required to demonstrate both practical forklift operation and presentation skills.
