Rough Terrain Telescopic Handler

Shepherds Health & Safety Ltd is fully accredited to deliver RTITB Rough Terrain Telescopic Handler Training (commonly known as rough terrain telehandler) on your company premises. Since 2007, we have established ourselves as a trusted, respected Rough Terrain Telescopic Handler training provider including training on the varied attachments found on these Fork Lift trucks.

Students benefit from the extensive experience of our highly qualified and RTITB Accredited Rough Terrain Telescopic Handler instructional staff. Our instructors monitor students’ progress and development closely throughout the courses, to ensure that they reach the required Health and Safety Executive standards prior to their final tests. We teach our students to be competent and capable Rough Terrain Telescopic Handler operators in your working environment, on your Lift Truck’s. This means your operators will be trained on the very vehicles they will use every day.

As a company you can decide whether your operators are registered with the “RTITB” or receive “In Company” certification. The standard of training delivered by our instructors is the same, regardless. However, we would always recommend selecting the RTITB Option when booking, and, receive the benefits of placing operators on the National Operators Registration Scheme (NORS).

The course covers: controls and instruments, starting, moving, stopping and steering the truck, operation of hydraulic controls, pre use inspection, weight assessment, handling pallets, containers, bulk packs and other industry associated loads, driving on/off ramps and inclines, driving over rough terrain,  loading and unloading, stacking and de-stacking – free standing and in racking to and from scaffolding, towers or platforms, plus lift truck stability, the operators’ safety code and the principles of operating on rough terrain.
