Course Content

telescopic handlerTelehandler training can vary in course length.  For a novice the course lasts for five days but for a more experienced operator it may differ.

The course covers a range of health and safety regulations and procedures as well as the vital terminology that an operator needs to know. The course will also teach the attendee how to safely operate the telescopic handler in a range of scenarios.

Suitable Delegates

Novices with no experience all the way up to experienced workers sit on the course.

For those who are experienced they would attend an EWA (experienced worker assessment) and completing this will make the successful delegates viable for a NPORS card which is can be valid for either 3 or 5 years.

NPORS recommend that a refresher should be taken to make sure that the operator is working to the correct standard and to correct any bad habits the operator may have picked up over the cards duration.
