As an employer, it is highly recommended that operators are trained via accredited programmes. Dependent on your industry, client or principal contractor requirements this may be NPORS or RTITB. This to ensure that you have taken adequate measures to evidence the competencies of employees and protect those working at height.

From an individual's point of view, this is a great ticket to hold. Telehandlers are used throughout a variety of industries, most notably construction, although there is increasing demand for their use throughout the engineering and manufacturing industries. Being able to evidence competency in using them safely is a great way to open further career opportunities.

The awarding body RTITB issue all certificates via PDF format. This will be emailed to the course booking contact on successful completion of the course, once recieved from RTITB.
