RTITB Counterbalance Lift Truck
RTITB Fork Lift Truck
A counterbalance forklift is the most common type of truck used in the UK. The counterbalance truck works by using a counterbalance weight design, where the load carried at the front of the machine is offset by the weight at the rear.
We provide training on the following categories:
- B1 – up to 5000kg
- B2 – 5001kg to 15000kg
The training aims to provide delegates with a thorough understanding of the hazards associated with operating such machinery including attachments.
Upon completion, delegates will have a working knowledge of how the various machines operate and be able to identify the major components of the machine and explain their functions, including weight limits, and to carry out an effective pre use check.
We are able to offer both accredited (RTITB) or Bullseye certified on site training courses and refresher courses for counterbalance forklift vehicles.

The fork truck training I did with John was both interesting and informative. I learnt a lot about how to operate efficiently, whilst keeping both myself and other people safe. Highly recommended.
