10 Day RTITB Instructor Training

This 10 day Forklift trainer course is conducted in accordance with RTITB. This is for knowledgeable drivers who wish to take on the role of Forklift Instructor in their workplace or on a commercial basis.

The course will culminate in an examination observed by an independent RTITB examiner. The delagates must pass this in order to become an RTITB accredited instructor and to carry out commercial training approved by RTITB.

The examination includes 3 elements:

  • Test of Basic Operating Skills (Practical test to instructor standard - maximum 25 penalties).
  • RTITB Examination of Practical Instructional Ability. Delegates must score a minimum of 70 from a maximum of 100 to pass this element. This examination is carried out on the final day of the course and is conducted by an independent RTITB examiner.
  • RTITB Examination of Instructor Associated Knowledge. A minimum of 80% must be achieved to pass this element. This examination is usually carried out on the final day of the course and is conducted by an independent RTITB examiner.

All 3 elements must be successfully completed to achieve an overall pass and qualify as a Lift Truck Instructor.

Successful candidates can then register on the RTITB National Register of Instructors, 'The Professional Register', for a period of 5 years.

All delegates must provide documentary evidence showing that they have successfully completed the appropriate Practical Test(s) of Basic Operating Skills, for the machine type used during the course (please note the machine will be a Counterbalance Lift Truck). The operating test must have been successfully taken within the 12 months preceding the course start date.

Delegates must have an aptitude for analytical work. As they will be expected to write and deliver lesson plans and be able to digest a significant amount of written information, it is expected that they will have strong literacy, numeracy and verbal skills.
