Course Duration: 10/11 Days
The course is designed to provide course members with the information, instruction, training and supervised practise necessary to enable a trained, tested, certified and experienced lift truck operator to meet the minimum standards required for registration as a lift truck instructor by RTITB Ltd. It will also enable course members to meet the minimum requirements for the lift truck instructors as listed in the HSE Approved Code of Practise – Rider Operated Lift Trucks – Operator training (L117) or equivalent national statuary requirements.
The Price includes all e-truck learning materials and the advanced operational competence test, both of which must be completed before the instructor course start date. Also included is a digital version of the LTG 1 Trainers Guide which will be required once the candidate has achieved the qualification.
Course members who successfully complete the end-of-course examinations will be eligible to apply for registration with RTITB Ltd as a registered instructor for a period of 5 years from the date of the successful examination.
Course members will have little or no experience of instructing, but will be required to train, test and certificate new or existing operators to a recognised standard. They should be selected with due regard for the responsibility of the task involved. In addition they should be presentable, articulate, enthusiastic and able to work on their own initiative.
Prior to the start of the course, course members should have had a minimum of six months’ industrial experience of operating the relevant type(s) of lift truck and must meet the eligibility criteria described in the RTITB Ltd Lift Truck Instructor Registration Examination, Requirements and Standards. They must provide satisfactory documentary evidence that they have been trained, tested and certified as lift truck operators and have recent sufficient experience to allow them to undertake Advanced Competence Test (no more than 25 points).
The examination consists of 4 elements which are:
The Advanced Practical Test and ELearning must both be completed prior to the Instructor Re-registration course starting (up to 3 months in advance)
All 4 elements must be successfully completed to achieve an overall pass and re-qualify as a Lift Truck Instructor.
They should be reasonably fit and mature and able to satisfy the medical requirements laid down by the Employment Medical Advisory Service, and published in HSG6 ‘Safety in Working with Lift Trucks’, as revised in November 2000, or equivalent national guidance or requirements.
