Forklift Trainer Refresher Courses

There are two ways to refresh your training as a forklift instructor in the North East, the first is a three day course which does not allow for a lot of time for refreshing knowledge, this is most suitable to those who instruct on a daily basis meaning they are low on time but confident of passing the final examination without the refresher courses.

The five day re-registration course is for those who are at the opposite end of the spectrum, training infrequently and without the confidence in taking the final exam without a forklift trainer refresher course.

The examination consists of 3 elements which are:

  • Test of Basic Operating Skills (Practical test to instructor standard – maximum 25 penalties). This is usually carried out on the first day of the course by the course tutor
  • RTITB Examination of Practical Instructional Ability (Approx. 40 minutes). Delegates must score a minimum of 70 from a maximum of 100 to pass this element. This examination is usually carried out on the final day of the course and is conducted by an independent RTITB Examiner
  • RTITB Examination of Instructor Associated Knowledge (Approx.20 minutes). A minimum of 80% must be achieved to pass this element. This examination is usually carried out on the final day of the course and is conducted by an independent RTITB Examiner.

All 3 elements must be successfully completed to achieve an overall pass and re-qualify as a Lift Truck Instructor.

Successful candidates can then register on the RTITB National Register of Instructors, ‘The Professional Register’, for a period of 5 years.

Entry Criteria

  • Current or previously registered (registration must not have expired over 12 months ago) RTITB Lift Truck Instructors

* Please note previously registered RTITB Instructors with an expiry date of over 12 months ago will need to attend the 5 day course.
