The Arbowet (working conditions) obligated the employer to educate his staff for tasks which they carry out.
Especially for risky tasks like for example to control a forklift truck (or a equivalent).
Staff who carry out these tasks should be well educated and trained. These course results in a safer and a damage free use of forklift trucks.

Target audience all forklift drivers (with or without experience).
Group size: minimum of 4 students
Location: at one of the participating firms.
- The students will receive an invitation in english.
- The theoretical part will be a written exam. The practical exercises will be judged by the instructor. When the result is enough the student will receive a certificate and pass
