Chances are that you may have already come across several ads, claiming that their online course can enable you to operate a forklift in less than three hours. But here are a few things that you need to check out, before enrolling in the course. While you may find it hard to believe, OSHA mandates that forklift training classes can also be offered online. But you still need to double check to make sure you’re your course complies with OSHA (occupational safety and health administration of the department of Labor, US) regulations.
Online training: When it comes to online training, be it in forklift or anything else, you need to research and confirm whether the course in question is valid and complies with all the regulations. A search online for osha forklift training online should list all the regulations as they apply to online forklift training classes.
Course curriculum: As per OSHA guidelines, all online forklift certification courses must also offer practical classes for the certification to be valid. While most of the topics can be learnt online, it is necessary for you to be able to practice several hours on a forklift in order to pass the practical and get a valid Osha forklift certificate.
Training modules: Find out if the online training session also offers blended training, with practical sessions, video conferencing along with lectures and peer support. A blended training module offers the most efficient and effective training and naturally, you may want to opt for a course that comes packed with training modules spread over several days rather than just a couple of hours.
Cost: Cost is yet another factor as to why you may want to opt for Osha forklift training online course since enrolling at a local school for the same can cost much more. Most schools that offer forklift training courses will charge extra for add-on services, materials and much more, so the overall cost of the course can be a bit prohibitive. Whereas an online course that offers a blend of online classes coupled with practical sessions can actually help save you a bundle in the process.
Refresher course: Most online forklift training courses come with a refresher course, so if you have already got your basic certification but need to renew your certification, then you can always enroll in one to stay updated with current regulations and renew your certification. Most refresher courses should not cost much, and you should be able to finish the course within a short span of time.
