Low Cost Counterbalance
Forklift Training Courses

Counterbalance forklift training is not an option for any company with forklifts operating on its property. Not only do regulations require employers to take all reasonable steps to ensure safety among their employees, but courts are also more than willing to assign liability to companies and managers who fail to ensure their workers have been properly trained. It is for this reason that the HGV Training Centre recommends companies operating forklifts have their drivers trained and certified.

Our recommendations sometimes go unheeded because companies believe they don't have the financial resources to devote to off-site training. They believe the only way they can effectively train their drivers without burdening their finances is to handle everything in-house. That is certainly one option, but another option is to take advantage of the low-cost counterbalance forklift training courses we provide.

Counterbalance forklift in use at a large storage facility

When we explain to our clients how affordable training is then most come to realise the benefit of allowing our experts to handle it. They discover that leaving the training to us enables them to concentrate on whatever it is they do best without having to worry about being hampered by excessive training bills. We keep costs as low as possible so that our customers never have to worry about how they pay for training.

Why Training Is so Necessary

The question of whether or not counterbalance forklift training should be conducted in-house is really a non-issue as long as comprehensive training is provided. Why is training necessary? Because forklifts are dangerous vehicles that require a particular skill set to operate safely. In order to gain a bit more clarity, let us briefly look at the different types of equipment used to move cargo around the warehouse:

  • Hand Pallet Truck – A hand pallet truck is a manually operated device that utilises a pair forks and a hydraulic system to raise and lower those forks. Of all the options available, it is safest and easiest to use. With just a little time and practice under the belt, the average worker can safely operate a hand pallet truck without issue.
  • Reach Truck – A reach truck is predominantly a warehouse vehicle that is chosen when height, rather than weight, is the primary concern for moving freight. They are compact enough to be used between tight rows of storage racks, yet strong and versatile enough to handle the job. The reach truck gets its name from the fact that the forks move forward, making it possible for a driver to retrieve a load without moving the truck too close to the rack.
  • Counterbalance Forklift – The counterbalance forklift is the most commonly used piece of equipment for moving freight around a warehouse. The forks do not move forward, so operators have to get right up next to the load they intend to carry. Counterbalance forklifts are the primary choice when weight is of major concern.

It must be understood that counterbalance forklifts are intended to move hefty loads across great distances, whereas the other two pieces of equipment are not. Knowing that, it should be obvious that operating a counterbalance forklift in a warehouse setting poses additional challenges that need to be overcome.

Five Challenges for Drivers

The counterbalance forklift training we provide at the HGV Training Centre focuses on teaching operators the best and safest way to overcome the additional challenges posed by operating a counterbalance forklift in a warehouse environment. But make no mistake, the concepts we teach can be utilised in any environment in which forklifts are used.

Five additional challenges we focus on are as follows:

  1. Load Balance – Operators of hand pallet and reach trucks don't normally have to worry about load balance issues because these are not handling extremely heavy weights. The same cannot be said about counterbalance forklifts. Operators need to understand the concepts of weight distribution and balance in order to prevent accidents involving cargo being dropped or forklift trucks tipping over.
  2. Pedestrian Traffic – The speed involved in operating a counterbalance forklift is such that drivers always need to be cognisant of pedestrian traffic. Forklifts can move pretty quickly, much faster than they can stop. Drivers cannot afford to not notice pedestrians anywhere near their workspaces.
  3. Field of Vision – Forklift design is such that vision is limited even when no load is present. When an operator adds a load, his or her field of vision can be significantly reduced. Again, these are problems not faced when using a reach or hand pallet truck.
  4. Sloped Surfaces – It is not uncommon for manufacturing and industrial environments to have sloped surfaces on which forklifts have to move. Operators need to learn how to compensate for these surfaces in light of the cargo they carry and the counterbalance weights designed to provide stability.
  5. Operational Control – The most difficult part of counterbalance forklift training is teaching students how to maintain smooth operational control of forks. Driving a forklift around the warehouse is one thing, smoothly operating forks to prevent accidental drops is entirely different. It takes a lot of experience to master fork control.

Operating a counterbalance forklift is infinitely more complex than using a hand pallet truck or reach truck. Allowing untrained drivers to work in your building is both unwise and unsafe. We hope you will consider the low-cost counterbalance training courses we offer.

How We Do It

A lot of training companies claim to offer low-cost training courses yet do not follow through on those claims. You will find that such is not the case at the HGV Training Centre. When we say we offer low-cost training, we back it up with our pricing list. Furthermore, we continually strive to contain our own costs so that we don't have to pass increases on to our customers.

How do we do it? By addressing some crucial issues that might the problematic for smaller, less developed training companies.

First and foremost is resource management. Being as large as we are – we currently operate more than four dozen facilities – enables us to more effectively use all of the resources at our disposal, translating to lower operating costs. It is no different than the large retailer capable of offering lower prices as a result of utilising resources more efficiently.

Second, we do not require our students to spend time in class learning information they do not need to know to pass their certification or licencing exams. That extemporaneous training can be provided in-house, saving us time and our customers money. We only charge for providing the relevant information students need to pass.

Third, we allow each forklift operator attending one of our classes to work at his or her pace. While this may mean some drivers move more slowly than others, a little bit of extra time they need to pass costs far less than having to repeat an entire class from start to finish. This saves money as well.

Our business model is one that promotes high-quality training at the minimum possible price. It is a model that we have strategically developed over decades of being in business. In other words, we are not where we are today by accident. We have pursued excellence from day one. We believe most of our clients know that after having taken just one or two classes with this.

Training is a necessity for all of your forklift operators. But don't spend more than you have to. The HGV Training Centre offers low-cost counterbalance forklift training courses at dozens of facilities throughout the UK. We are ready to train you or your operators right away. Upon completion of training, every operator receives a certificate accredited by ITSSAR.

Vehicle Type Verses Licence Class
HGV / LGV Cat 'C+E' (Class 1)

Any vehicle over 7.5t that has a detachable or separate trailer, Cat 'C+E' licences can only be applied for once the driver has taken and passed their Cat 'C'. These are larger vehicles so tend to be used for long haul, national and international routes. Starting salaries are around £28,000 per year.

HGV / LGV Cat 'C' (Class 2)

For vehicles in a rigid-based body that is over 7.5t – examples include fire engines, rubbish collection vehicles and any HGV, providing the vehicle is all one unit (i.e. the cab does not separate from the trailer). Usually operated in towns and cities, starting salaries for Cat 'C' drivers are around £24,000 per year

Cat C1

For use if driving any goods vehicle that is above 3.5t and below 7.5t in weight. If you gained your driving licence before 1997, you will automatically have this category on your licence. If you gained your driving licence after 1997, you will have to take a test. Note – if you gain your Cat 'C' you automatically get given your Cat 'C1', so it is advisable to take a full Cat 'C' course and get both categories for the price of one. C1 vehicle examples include: horseboxes, ambulances, Occado delivery vehicles etc. Course can be completed in 1x week.

Cat C1+E

Same as above, but gives you the capacity to tow a trailer behind your C1 vehicle. Course can be completed in 1x week.

Cat B+E

This enables you to tow an item behind a standard car. Again, if you passed before 1997 you do not need to pass a test to tow a trailer behind a car – if you passed after 1997, a full course and driving test is required. Course can be completed in 3x days.

Cat D

This is a full bus / coach licence, enabling you to drive any sized Passenger Carrying Vehicle. Course can be completed in 1x week.

Cat D1

Enables you to drive a minibus of 9-16 seats maximum. If you passed your driving test before 1997 this category will already be on your licence, if you passed after that date a full course and test is required. Course can be completed in 1x week.

Fork Lift

The licences depend on what vehicle is used and the type of environment it is used in. 1-day refresher courses: for experienced operators with lapsed licences 3-day mini courses: for experienced operators who have not received formal training 5-day full courses: for novices who have not received any training and have no experience. All courses begin with classroom time where you will learn the theoretical requirements of the vehicle they are being trained on. Includes all relevant aspects of health and safety and short multiple-choice Theory Test. Practical training begins with an explanation as to the operation of the relevant truck. Practical elements cover daily vehicle checks and safe loading techniques – you will then practice the operation of the vehicle until they become proficient, whereby a short practical test will take place.
