nstructing in Forklift Operations (and most other materials handling equipment types) throughout the NE of England since 1995 with previous employers, we opened the facility in 2004 and have remained here ever since.  Your workplace may have been visited by one of our instructors for on-site training - so don't be suprised to see a familiar face here in-centre.

NEW FOR 2017 we have taken the building next door and are now offering multiple safety courses including: First Aid, Fire Marshals, COSHH, Risk Assessment, Abrasie Wheel, Personal Licence Holders, Nail Gun safety and Health & safety in the Workplace qualifications.


All instructors have undergone teaching and health & safety qualifications in addition to Awarding Body requirements for Registered instructors (and are re-registered after training, every 5 years).  As an instructor centre we are not only annually inspected by the Awarding Bodies but at each Instructor course, for this reason standards cannot slip!


We take pride in the feedback received from those who train with us, those who have enjoyed their course are a valuable source of advertising. 

 Training is kept relaxed and friendly - we want you to feel you are able to communicate with the instructors informally and questions are welcomed.  Our aim is to ensure you remember your course and are relaxed with your instructor to facilitate testing.

 Forklift Training Academy aim to assist at every level and have in the past, been assisted by the use of Translators and Signers.  Should you require assistance for your course please ask at time of booking.


If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us direct - happy to assist should you prefer to visit and check out the facilities for yourself prior to booking. See contacts page for directions and map or assistance with local bus routes.


We also endeavour to display the latest 'local' job vacancies for those seeking local relevant employment opportunities - qualified Level 4 Information, Advice and Guidance staff on site - happy to help.
