Forklift Training with 1st Advanced Training - proud to be part of Budget Forklifts

At 1st Advanced Training Services we are proud to be a part of Budget Forktrucks Ltd. The firm has been an industry leader for four decades and is an expert in material handling solutions. Today it continues to serve enterprises of all sizes from large multinationals to independent traders in all sectors, supplying both brand new and second-hand forklifts. As the training arm of Budget Forklifts, 1st Advanced provides strong support through its first-class training services.


When it comes to obtaining the best fork truck training in the UK, companies need to look no further than our services. We offer training courses designed for every level of experience from total novices to knowledgeable operators who need a refresher. We also supply courses on a variety of different material handling solutions for forklift drivers who need to expand their skillset when new equipment is introduced onsite.

We believe that delivering the highest standard of training available is paramount. As such, all our instructors are experienced and certified. Each is fully accredited according to ITSSAR and RTITB driver training standards.

Business benefits of forklift training courses

While it is true that an operator requires no official license to drive a forklift on a working site, comprehensive training is recommended by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). It is beneficial for operators to undertake forklift truck training to perform their role effectively and safely. Correct training can increase driver confidence and safety onsite while allowing operators to tackle tasks more efficiently.

Expert forklift driver training offers benefits to drivers and businesses alike. Operators seeking employment will find they enjoy an advantage over other candidates when they apply for positions. As a rule, many employers prefer to hire experienced drivers.

Companies will find that professionally trained drivers are more efficient and productive. Competent forklift operators can also minimise risks of injury and accidents on site and damage to goods and the fork truck itself. Furthermore, when HSE inspections take place on-site, firms can prove that their workforce is fully trained in the best practices of forklift operation.

Comprehensive training to suit your site needs

At 1st Advanced, we are experts in providing professional training for an extensive range of forklift vehicles, including cheery pickers, forklift trucks, telehandlers, and scissor lifters among others. We can also provide comprehensive training for manual vehicles using LPG fuel and hydraulic systems and the latest full-electric battery-powered automatic options.

Our services are designed to offer convenience. As a result, we can deliver training either in a familiar environment on your premises or offsite to avoid disruption to your workflow. Onsite training involves our instructors coming to you and allows your existing operators to learn about the makes and models they are familiar with.

However, for operators and companies that do not have vehicles, or a site set up, offsite training is also available. As part of Budget Forklifts, we enjoy access to outstanding facilities where we train the clients on our courses which include the use of vehicles from our fleet. Off-site training is especially popular among operators that are merely looking to enhance their skill set and enterprises that want to send a specific employee away to complete general training.
