Reach Truck Training Course Overview

These trucks operate a little differently to counterbalance trucks as they can reach forward once a load has been picked up. They are ideal for moving items from shelf to shelf inside a warehouse (vertically and horizontally) setting them apart from counterbalance trucks.

The RTITB Reach Truck Operator training course will give you the skills to operate a reach truck safely and efficiently, carry out a pre-use inspection, and recall the causes of truck and load instability. Operators should be trained to an essential level of skill to work with Reach trucks safely, efficiently and with competence.

We offer several forklift training courses here at 4KS, including our reach truck training course for novices (beginner), experienced forklift operators and those who need a refresher course. We also offer a reach truck training course that includes a conversion from counterbalance forklifts.

Our Reach truck training courses last between one and five days, depending on which course level you choose and can be conducted at our forklift training centre in Birmingham or Peterborough, or at your work premises, provided you have the appropriate facilities for forklift training.

  • Lift truck controls and instruments

  • Operation of hydraulic controls
  • Battery care
