Our reach truck conversion courses are perfect for operators who have already been trained on a different forklift truck and hold a certificate.


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


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


Our reach truck conversion courses are approved for funding purposes. Click here to find out how a funding opportunity could pay for your reach truck 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 Reach Truck Conversion Training.

Course Content

The conversion course is designed to convert your existing operating skills to enable you to learn to operate a reach truck.


Our conversion courses cover the following areas:



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


You may also wish to consider a Bendi Conversion Course or a Telehandler Conversion Course after completing this course. Contact us to find out more.

Reach Truck Conversion Training Courses

Not having used a reach truck before (only a counterbalance) it took sometime for me to grasp how different certain actions meant I had to think in a different way, not only was my instructor patient with me but gave me lots of pointers on how to correct myself without having to restart. I cannot say how highly I regard this company.
