So… how does one get Free Forklift Training in 2022?

The pandemic has affected everybody in one way or another. If you weren’t furloughed, you may have been made redundant which is equally as bad.  In fact, some people have been out of work for the last year and cannot see a way forward.  Well… have you thought about a career as forklift truck driver?  With industry in the UK now picking up, especially since Brexit. There are a huge array of jobs available for you to do including forklift truck driver.

So how do I get a role like this when I have no experience? I also can’t afford to put myself through a course

Well… It’s simple.  This is something you might not know. The job centre will put you through this course if you have been unemployed for 6 months or more.  Unemployed people who would like the chance to develop their skills will be offered the chance to train at a job centre site for free.  You see, the job centre recognises how hard it is for people to get a job nowadays. Without the basic training, it’s difficult and have started to offer various occupational trades training. This includes forklift truck driving and health and safety courses to provide you with some transferable skills for the future whilst making you more desirable for prospective employers.

5 Steps you need to do/have to qualify for free forklift training.

1)       You must have been jobless for at least 6 months.

2)      You must be in touch with and known to the job centre. Have been working alongside them to try get a job for the last 6 months and above.

3)      You need to have a job in mind and be able to show that there is an opportunity available.  They will only put you through your course if the job exists and there is an opportunity that you can apply for.
