This training is the same forklift certification and training course that we offer to business clients and it is designed for both experienced, and for first-time forklift drivers. The Trainer has over 30-years of experience and he will work one-on-one with each student until they are comfortable driving a forklift. Each student will use the forklift to move pallets as they place them on, and take them off of a shelf. We train 900-1200 people each year and for many, this was their first time on a forklift. It doesn’t matter if you have never driven an forklift, or if you are just learning to drive a forklift. Houston Forklift Safety can help!

The reason that we (Houston Forklift Safety) offers training to individuals is because you deserve access to the same great training that companies like ExxonMobil, ConocoPhillips and other large companies have access to. That’s exactly what we offer. This training that you get is the same training that every Houston Forklift Safety customer receives. It is based on the Forklift Certification Classes that we’ve taught at The University of Houston Downtown, UT Health and Houston Community College. The classroom part of this training can be completed in-person or online.


The in-person option is Instructor led training in a classroom setting. We offer this class on the third Friday of each month and it starts at 9:00 am. The online option is  self-paced, interactive and internet based training that can be viewed from any device. It is a good option for people who can’t make it to a scheduled class and it is also a time-efficient solution for people who need to get certified quickly. Both options are OSHA compliant; both options include free hands-on training; both options take 3-4 hours to complete and; the costs for both options is $100.00.


The advantage of the in-person  class is that everything is done on the same day and you’ll leave with a forklift certification and a wallet card. The advantage of the online training is that it is broken into several 8-12 minute segments. This allows you to study how you want, when you want and where you want. It can also be stopped, started and reviewed multiple times. You can take the course in one sitting (usually takes 60-90 minutes) or you can take it one segment at a time. The choice is yours.  We’ll schedule a time for the hands on part of the training after you complete the training. You can call our office (7130 782-0733 or you can email us ( if you need to schedule a class or if you need more information.
