Equip-Safe believe that people learn by ‘doing’. We focus on training you on the forklift, and not in the classroom. Courses are scheduled weekly at Equip-Safe’s training venue on the corner of Orrong Road and Pilbara Street in Welshpool, or can be conducted on client’s premises.  Saturday courses are available by request.  Please contact Equip-Safe for on-site pricing.  

 

Our classes have a maximum of 8 participants so that everyone can have sufficient time operating the two forklifts.

 

After attending our course, you are welcome to return and practice what you have learned at no cost.   This would need to be organised to ensure the forklifts were not being used on a course.
