Johnston Equipment, the leading Canadian logistics and supply-chain solutions provider, also offers the very best in forklift training and forklift operator training. While Johnston Equipment is well-known and well-established in the field of supply chain management and logistics solutions, it also provides training programs for businesses that would like to train their staff to become certified lift truck operators.
Businesses can look to Johnston Equipment to provide fully customized training across the country. In fact, Johnston Equipment was the first company to actually provide fully customizable training solutions across Canada. This means that no matter where the business is located, Johnston Equipment offers a wide variety of training location options: At any Johnston facility, on site at the business/client’s facility or at the Raymond headquarters location when training on Raymond® lift trucks with specific requirements.
Regardless of where the business decides to pursue forklift operator training, they can be assured that their staff will receive the very best in teaching – Johnston’s training programs meet provincial and federal standards. What’s more, many of Johnston’s training programs are accredited by the Canadian Supply Chain Sector Council (CSCSC).
One of the most popular and most effective Johnston’s training programs (CSCSC accredited) is Safety on the Move® – Operator Training. This course includes theoretical components, covering topics such as proper operating procedures, applicable regulations, loading docks and batteries. Inexperienced and beginner operators will have to complete additional hands-on operating instruction in order to master the skills required to drive a lift truck. The theory section of this course lasts a day long, while hands-on training may vary, depending on the skill level of the students. For small groups, training with employees of other organizations is an available option.
