The courses are typically 3 day courses conducted with a maximum of 3 trainees, however courses can be conducted over a shorter duration with fewer trainees:



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


The Counterbalance truck we use for training is a Hyster E2.50XM which is in the most common lift truck size category (B1) . It is has a 2500kg capacity, which makes it suitable for lorry loading training situations and with our pallet racking and realistically sized UK spec pallets we can accurately replicate typical warehousing conditions as well.

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

Would just like to thank Andy, the instructor from Alba Training, for getting me through my RTITB counterbalance ticket. I had drove forklifts in the past on in house tickets and to be honest I knew nothing until I attended this course. It was very valuable to me as I was an accident waiting to happen but hopefully not now and thanks again for the knowledge I have gained
