3 Ways Your Forklift Certification Will Serve You


We all know that it is important to get certified to drive a forklift. Businesses who use uncertified employees will incur heavy fines from OSHA, but there are some direct benefits for individuals who decide to get their certification. Here are three of them:

1. It can help you get a job.

Your training can get you to the top of the application pool so you have a better chance of getting the job you want. Some employers are looking for individuals with the proper credentials and do not have room to hire those who are not. You could be losing out on a job because you haven’t taken the time and effort to get your safety training. In addition, your certificate is valid anywhere in the United States, as well as Canada and Mexico, so you can find a job virtually anywhere.

2. It can help you earn more money.

As of May of 2010, forklift operators earned an average of $31,500 a year, though some earned as much as $56,000*. The amount you can earn can increase significantly with more than four years of experience. Since your credentials only last three years, you will need to renew in order to stay current, but the return on your salary is well worth the expense.

3. It will make you more valuable to your employer.

By obtaining the proper licensing, you make yourself more versatile, which makes you more of an asset to your company. The more valuable you are, the likelier it is that you will retain your job if your employer needs to downsize.

Obtaining your certificate is extremely beneficial, and with our services it is fast, easy, and inexpensive. Just visit our website at http://www.usforkliftcertification.com/ to get started. You won’t regret getting certified, but you might regret it if you don’t.

The Benefits of Online Forklift Certification


While traditional classes are great, they are not always a good fit for everyone. We all lead busy lives these days, so flexibility is important. That is why we provide you with the flexibility to study and test for your forklift certification online.

You Can Go At Your Own Pace

If you have a hectic life, you may find it difficult to carve out an hour on any given day, but with our online course you don’t have to. Once you have signed up, you are ready to go. The course material takes about one to two hours to go through, but you don’t have to do it all at once. You can come back and study any time, so it’s OK if “working at your own pace” equates to you squeezing in 15 to 20 minutes at a time.

Once you have gone through the material, you can take the test at your leisure. It only takes a few minutes to complete the test, and once passed, you are well on your way to becoming certified.

You Can Do It Anywhere

The Internet is everywhere these days, and with smart phones and laptops at our disposal, it is even more accessible. Our course is available online and on most smart phones, so you can study anywhere. Imagine taking your lunch break at the local fast food restaurant and scrolling through the material on your phone as you eat. Being able to learn anywhere just adds to the convenience our course provides.

It Is Inexpensive

Traditional courses generally cost over a hundred dollars on top of having a set time in which to go over course material and take your tests. Our course costs less than half of what you would spend on a traditional class. Once you have passed our test, all you need to do is perform a driving test with your employer and your forklift certification will be complete.
