Training at your location or at one of our training centers
The truth of the matter is that if a forklift is needed, then no other substitute will work. If one thinks about it, forklifts are used in many different types of businesses, from manufacturing plants and lumber yards, to distribution centers for big box retailers and online merchandising sites.
Operators who complete our OSHA certified forklift course will be able to operate Class C Forklifts. OSHA certification protects against heavy fines and potential liability. Other benefits include: lower maintenance costs, reduced material damage, increased efficiency and fewer near-miss accidents (or more serious accidents).
When properly trained, operators will no longer guess about the best approach, balance and moving up load. To get the most benefit many of our students schedule their forklift training immediately after passing their CDL road test.
Ferrari has training solutions for every class of forklift.
Choosing the right training solution may seem complicated, below is the various types of forklift classifications.

These are quite a bit more advanced however, and so most people will start off by doing a 1 Day Novice Course.
Hoisting and Rigging
Hoisting and rigging (H&R) refers to the lifting and moving of loads using mechanical devices. The objectives of the hoisting and rigging program are to protect personnel from injury, the environment from harm, and equipment and property from damage; specifically, to protect load operators and others in the work area, scientific equipment, other government property, and the hoisting and rigging equipment itself.
Hoisting and rigging is a complicated topic and can have significant safety consequences if not performed correctly. Fundamental to the H&R program, and consistent with Your Company’s integrated safety and environment management system, is the expectation that organizations involved in hoisting and rigging activities take responsibility to understand the hoisting and rigging requirements and apply them to their operations.
Trucking companies see hiring a driver that is OSHA certified to operate a Forklift as a huge plus. This can allow you to load your own truck load which cuts down on potential costs for the company. This also allows you to potentially work in the warehouse when delivery orders are slow. This all equals better JOB SECURITY.
