BSD Training have been carrying out forklift training for over 20 years and all our instructors have a wealth of experience and training knowledge. We have a number of counterbalance forklifts, pallet trucks, a telescopic and a reach truck at our training centre in Lisburn and training is carried out daily on these machines. If you need forklift training but don't have access to a forklift or are an individual looking to further their skills we can provide a course to suit you.
BSD Training are proud to be a Category 3: Instructor & Operator Training Organisation. One of only 2 centres in Northern Ireland that are Category 3 training organisations. This means that not only can we train and assess operators we can also train Instructors to ITSSAR Standards who can then train operators within your own company to ITSSAR Standards.
All our instructors are accredited by ITSSAR to carry out lift truck and plant and machinery training to their high industry accreditation standards.
