Have you ever been presented with a fork lift certificate (licence) and just accepted it at face value? In all honesty most people do.
Do you know what to look for?
Did you know that if the certificate was issued by an accredited training organisation there are certain things that should be included on the certificate itself? This rule applies regardless of which accrediting body it is.
The four members of the Accrediting Bodies Association (Workplace Transport) now all operate their own registration schemes and candidates who have received training from an accredited training organisation should be registered with the appropriate accrediting body. This has been the case since at least 1st January 2015.
The four members of the ABA are:
- The Independent Training Standards Scheme & Register (ITSSAR)
- Association of Industrial Truck Trainers (AITT)
- National Plant Operators Registration Scheme (NPORS)
This is all verifiable so that you can be sure the training the candidate has received has met the nationally recognised standards and within the correct timeframes.
If you are unsure of whether a fork lift certificate is genuine or the training provided is accredited why not give us a call on 01933 677708 and we will be able to help.
Until next time……
