Forklift Operator Training

Crown's network of fully qualified trainers and accredited assessors offer recognised forklift and High Risk Work licence training. Conducted at your site or our training facilities, these highly trained instructor led sessions present the full gamut of powered industrial lift truck safety information with clear, understandable and highly visual presentations. Hands-on time is maximised and structured to assure operators are trained not only in lift truck operation and task performance, but in safe operating habits and practices as well. These are crucial in effective operator training. 

Supervisor Training

Supervisors of lift truck operators play a critical role in reinforcing the safe operating skills and habits taught during operator training sessions. Crown offers our Supervisors course to demonstrate how to effectively supervise lift truck operators and reinforce safe operating habits. 
The workshop covers topics such as: 

Identifying proper and improper operation

Recognising potential hazards

Giving feedback to operators

Pedestrian supervision

WHS requirements

Forklift Service Technician Training

Our award winning Demonstrated Performance Service Training training gives service technicians the Crown-specific skills and knowledge they need to keep a fleet up and running. Since many technicians are hands-on learners, they are more likely to retain information learned through first-hand experience than material presented in a lecture. Crown’s DP Service Technician Training goes above and beyond traditional classroom training, allowing participants to work on lift trucks with instructor supervision. Technicians can move at their own pace and focus on the particular tasks and skill groups that best serve their organisation’s needs.

Demonstrated Performance training can be customised to the needs of each technician. They only spend time on what they need to learn, and only work on lift trucks that apply to them.

Pedestrian Training

Pedestrian awareness is an important part of a comprehensive lift truck safety program. Crown offers a training program that can help train pedestrians who work near lift trucks.
