Suncoast Safety Council now offers Hands-On Forklift Driver Training. This 8 hour combined classroom and behind the wheel training teaches basic forklift operation, and provides actual driver's training on a 5K propane forklift that is provided.

This class is geared towards drivers who have little or no forklift driving experience. Drivers will be taught the skill set to become knowledgeable in safely driving a forklift. All training is held at PTEC facilities in St. Petersburg, FL.

PLEASE NOTE: Students must be at least 18 years old to enroll.

The forklift training certificate awarded upon completion of this course will satisfy OSHA's Powered Industrial Truck (Forklift) Standard, 1910.178 for formal classroom training and give the student practical training. To receive a certificate of completion, participants must successfully pass a written exam and a hands-on forklift skills test. Employers must train forklift operators on each type of forklift they may operate at their place of employment and how to drive safely in the workplace.
