Kentra can provide a Telescopic Handler training course, for novice candidates through to experienced operators and the course registered by ourselves or with an awarding body if required.

See Lift Truck cover page for duration of course.

NPORS have introduced a new category N138 suspended loads, which is a separate ‘Bolt On’ course specifically covering loads carried below the forks. This type of load carrying is therefore no longer covered as part of the the standard Telehandler refresher and test.

We can complete the Suspended load tests on the final day of a full 5 day Novice course if required.
