Forklift Updating

Forklift and self-propelled equipment license renewal course




The forklift update provides useful information for the safe use of forklifts and self-propelled equipment.

The obligation to train the operators in charge of using the forklift is provided for by the art. 73 of Legislative Decree 81/08 and in the State-Regions Agreement relating to equipment of 22 February 2012 (Annex VI). Specifically, in point 6 of the Agreement called “Duration of validity of the qualification and update” it is noted that the operator’s qualification must be renewed within 5 years from the date of issue of the qualification certificate referred to in point 5.2, after verification of participation in refresher courses.

The course lasts 4 hours (1 hour for theoretical topics and 3 hours for practical ones).

Theoretical tests will be carried out to evaluate the knowledge acquired during the course; a participation/training/qualification certificate will be issued to those who successfully pass them.
