This class will be based on the National Safety Council’s (NSC) Forklift Training Program. Students in this class will review an overview of forklift operation, inspection, and safe use of the forklift truck. Students will learn how to inspect the truck, and how to determine lift limitations. Students will also learn how to understand the center of gravity and how that goes along with safe operation to properly lift a load. Students will be responsible for demonstrating proper use by completing an obstacle course along with an inspection. Students will be required to purchase a textbook which comes with a certificate and wallet card from NSC for $6. Textbooks will be handed out at the class and will not be sold in the BCCC Bookstore. The course fee includes a $70 registration fee and a $1.25 accident insurance fee.
