Training has always been and will continue to be an essential aspect of all industries. A well-rounded training program can provide trainees with comprehensive knowledge about relevant regulations and guidelines while also teaching them the safe operation of class 7 rough terrain forklifts. This versatile program combines theoretical learning with practical hands-on exercises, making it suitable for operators of any skill level. By participating in this training program, operators can enhance their knowledge and skills, ensuring that they operate forklifts safely and efficiently.

Telehandlers are a type of heavy equipment that is incredibly versatile and can complete a wide range of tasks. They have a telescopic boom, similar to a crane, that can extend forwards and upwards, making them more like a crane than a traditional forklift. Telehandlers, also known as telescopic handlers, are known for their power, reach, and versatility on job sites. With various options available, such as compact, high-capacity, and rotating telehandlers, along with multiple attachments, telehandlers offer an excellent solution for many different industries, including agriculture in North America.

Telehandler forklift training is essential for anyone operating or working around telehandler forklifts and other heavy machinery. These powerful machines, like telehandlers, are widely used in construction, agriculture, and other industries to lift and move heavy loads. Proper training ensures that operators have the necessary knowledge and skills to safely operate the equipment, reducing the risk of accidents and injuries. During telehandler forklift training, operators learn about the machine’s controls, stability principles, load capacity, and safe operating practices. They also learn how to perform pre-operation inspections, maneuver the telehandler in various conditions, and properly secure loads. By completing telehandler forklift training, operators gain confidence in their abilities and contribute to a safer work environment.

Course Outline & Content

Rough Terrain / Telehandler Forklift Training

Phase 1 – Theory Training

Trainees are guided through a comprehensive & interactive review of the operator’s workbook covering:

  • Rules / Regulations

  • Types Of Forklifts

  • Main Parts & Functions

  • Forklift Safety

  • Leverage

  • Centre Of Gravity

  • Stability Triangle / Pyramid

  • Load Charts

  • Steering Modes

  • Safe Operation / Shutdown

  • Fuels

Phase 2 – Theory Evaluation

Upon theory completion, participants will participate in a knowledge review test consisting of multiple choice, true/false and essay-type questions. These tests are graded, returned to the trainees, and then reviewed to ensure proper retention. A minimum score of 70% is required to pass.

NOTE: Anyone with known difficulties with English/written-based tests must be accompanied by an interpreter or consult us about any difficulties.

Phase 3 – Practical Training

Trainees are shown the pre-use inspection, machine controls and safe operating procedures and then given the opportunity to practice under the helpful eye of the program trainer.

Phase 4 – Practical Evaluation

Trainees are assessed as having reached a minimum skill level and then individually evaluated using the equipment in a series of skill-reinforcing scenarios. Following the evaluation, trainees are debriefed about their performance and then given the opportunity to address any issues they may have. Each trainee’s records will be handed to the employer (or trainee) after completion of the program.

  • Workbook

  • Supplementary Handouts

  • Wallet Card Certification (upon successful completion)


The program takes part in a classroom for theory learning but participation in the field is vital to successful completion. Participants are required to bring all site-required PPE, including :

  • Steel toed work boots
  • High visibility vest
  • Hard hat (if required)
  • Any other PPE required by the workplace

NOTE: Because previous training is hard to judge from one training company to another, re-certification courses will only be made available to individuals able to present proof of previous training from Clockwork Safety & Equipment Training or another widely credible source. In-house training at a previous employer will NOT suffice.
