  • Legislation
  • Operators safety code

  • Pre-start and operational checks

A 1-day course is available for operators who require a re-test or familiarisation for a different machine.

Accredited forklift training now requires all candidates to be registered with a governing body. This is required for companies whose forklift operators work on their own and clients sites and require a national certificate.

Evolve Training will register all our candidates with ITSSAR under the TOPS (Trained Operator Passport Scheme).

ITSSAR TOPS Registration costs £10.00 plus VAT per candidate and this included in the price of the training.
