Telehandler • Telescopic • Teleporter Training Courses

We provide RTITB or ITSSAR Telescopic Lift Truck Driver Training at our Training Centre in Cumbernauld, Glasgow or on-site across Scotland.


The Telescopic Lift Truck, often referred to as a Telehandler or Teleporter is a type of truck that has a telescopic boom enabling it to reach loads that a counterbalance truck would have difficulty reaching. They are especially useful in warehousing, allowing a lorry to be unloaded from one side only. They are also widely in use across sites with difficult access conditions and rough terrains such as building sites.


The telehandler truck operates on a very simple principle: a counterweight positioned over the back wheels counterbalances the load that is lifted on the forks. This counterweight requires to be much more effective than a counterbalance to allow the boom and load to be extended.


All of our telescopic forklift courses are approved by ILA for funding purposes. Click here to find out how ILA Scotland could help pay for your Telehandler training.


We offer 4 different Telehandler Courses:



Our Telehandler courses are accredited by RTITB or ITSSAR, recognised nationally for Telescopic Lift Truck Training. They are not CPCS or CSCS telehandler courses.
