Course Duration

A 1 day ‘test only’ can be carried out on candidates with relevant experience.

Training duration is dependent on the number of candidates, and each candidates previous experience.  Generally a novice candidate would require 5 days training on the Telescopic Handler (this is based on 3 candidates with little or no experience) however this could be reduced with relevant experience.



Our construction plant courses can be delivered with either NPORS or our own in-house accreditation. On successful completion of the course candidates will therefore receive certification per their preference.
