Our expertise covers everything from FLT counterbalance courses to more specialised forklift driver training. We’re dedicated to helping your business grow, giving your employees the training and experience they need to operate forklifts at an industry-leading level.

At Hidon Training we understand the importance of your records being readily available to validate the competence of these operators. This is why we aim to issue our forklift certification and a verified FLT licence within 7 days of successful completion of any forklift driver training course. We are also AITT accredited and ensure our forklift training is completed to a high standard whilst remaining a cost-effective and fast solution for every future forklift driver.

The demand for online shopping is on the increase, which has led to an increased demand for forklift drivers and operators. It is the responsibility of the employer to ensure they have provided sufficient training for employees who are operating any machinery as part of their role.

The importance and benefits of employees holding a forklift driving certificate or licence is understated; without licensed forklift operators, you would not be able to load, unload, store or move any goods within a company or warehouse. Having one or multiple staff members within a company that can operate a forklift is key to increasing the efficiency, safety, and quality of operations in a business.
