Forklift Training

T- T T+

How would you like to participate in a free, nationally recognized, half-day training that qualifies you for one of the top in-demand occupations in Southwest Louisiana?

Thanks to a federal training grant, SOWELA Technical Community College is offering the opportunity to enroll in the National Safety Council’s Lift Truck Operator Training at its campus in Lake Charles.

Training is interactive, takes place in a small group setting, and is OSHA-compliant. Upon successful completion of the training, you will receive a personalized Certificate of Completion and wallet-size ID card to demonstrate to potential employers that you have obtained this recognized certification.

Forklift operation and safety training teaches:

  • Moving with and without a load as well as picking up and stacking a load
  • Special considerations, such as trailers, ramps, and elevators
  • Non-operator safety training for those who work around forklifts
