Train the Trainer Classes

The Houston Forklift Safety “Forklift Train the Trainer” classes are designed to help companies that prefer to develop, implement and maintain their own OSHA compliant forklift Safety programs. The training can be done at our location or at yours. Any Foremen, Supervisors, Managers, Managers, Safety Officers, Owners, etc., who will be training other forklift drivers, should receive this training.

There are two ways that an employers can “certify” forklift operators. The first is to hire an outside company, like Houston Forklift Safety, to do the training. This is the option that most businesses prefer. [expander_maker more=”Read more” less=”Read less”]The second is to have someone who works for the company (a Manager, Supervisor, an experienced Forklift Driver, etc.) do the training in-house. Regardless of the option(s) you prefer, Houston Forklift Safety can help. We can provide the training and we also offer “Train the Trainer” classes (there are advantages and, there are disadvantages, to either method). This post will focus on the Forklift Train the Trainer Classes that Houston Forklift Safety offers. Information about the other types of training that we offer can be found here (training we offer).

Call (713) 782-0733 or send us an email to schedule a Train the Trainer class. You can also check the training schedule and register for classes online. Here is the link:

    When will the next class start after Jan. 11th 2017?
    Are there any classes after 5pm?

      Ascencion, We could schedule an “after-hours” Train the Trainer class but, because it takes 5-7 hours to complete the trainer classes, it would be a 2-day class. I sent you an email in case you wanted more information about these classes. Thank you.
