Rough Terrain Forklift Training

Operator training with a rough terrain forkliftRough terrain forklifts are perfect for operations that need to transport heavy loads over difficult terrain. This can include mud, hills, slopes, or unevenly distributed gravel. Though similar to a conventional forklift, there are many key differences in operation and functionality. That’s why Leavitt Machinery offers a rough terrain forklift training program. This course provides participants with a thorough understanding of safety standards, maintenance procedures, and safe operating techniques.

Our rough terrain forklift certification course consists of classroom theory, a written test, and practical hands-on experience. The course content is delivered through multimedia presentations, class discussions, and demonstrations. This combination ensures that participants have the knowledge and confidence they need for safe and effective operation.
