The Washington Winegrowers is offering a one day training that includes classroom training, a written test, off-site driving portion instruction form, and certificate which meets requirements for all forklift operators for three years of certification.

The course meets OSHA and LNI requirements for forklift operation including hazards of forklifts, differences between forklifts and automobiles, center of gravity, and operations and inspections. The course offers the required classroom instruction and written test for forklift operations. The necessary materials will be provided to participants to then complete the hands on, driving portion of the training directly with their employers at their place of work. Once both the classroom instruction and hands on portion are complete, individuals will be licensed to drive a forklift.

This course also serves as a "Train the Trainer" course for company supervisors or representatives who attend and would like to take provided training materials and then conduct in-house employee trainings.
