Why You Need Forklift Training - NOT A Forklift License

Forklift Training At Tri-County Training In Cambridge, Ontario

In Ontario, you don’t need a forklift license … but you do need forklift training to become certified to operate a forklift or reach truck, and comply with specific Ontario Health and Safety Act guidelines.

The certification allows you to operate either vehicle for three years, at which time, you will need to become re-certified.
