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


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


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


Our telehandler conversion courses are approved for funding purposes. Click here to find out how a funding opportunity could help to pay for your telehandler 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 or ITSSAR, recognised nationally for Telehandler Refresher Training.

Course Content

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


Our conversion courses cover the following areas:



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


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

Telehandler • Telescopic • Teleporter Conversion Training Courses

I attended a one day conversion course for a Telehandler. I found the course very informative, set at a good pace and given by a very experienced instructor. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in using the company again for any of our training requirements.
