Our counterbalance conversion courses are perfect for operators who have already been trained to drive a different lift truck and want to learn to drive a counterbalance truck.


So if, for example, you already have a Bendi or Reach Truck certificate, then you can convert to a Counterbalance forklift on one of our conversion courses.


Counterbalance conversion courses can be conducted at our training centre or on-site at customer premises.


Our counterbalance conversion courses are approved by ILA for funding purposes. This means that our counterbalance conversion courses are free when you use an ILA to fund it. Click here to find out how ILA Scotland could pay for your counterbalance conversion training course.


The courses are typically 2 day courses conducted with a maximum of 3 trainees, however courses can be conducted over a shorter duration with fewer trainees. 1 Trainee can be converted on a 1 day course for example which can be conducted part time over 2 evenings if required.


Our courses are accredited by RTITB, recognised nationally for Counterbalance Refresher Training.

At the end of  the course each candidate receives an RTITB operators certificate of training and a photographic operators card.
