Telescopic Handler

Telehandlers are utility lifting machines, usually mounted on a four-wheel drive chassis and equipped with a telescopic boom that can provide lift heights over 29 metres. Telehandlers most often are fitted with pallet forks for lifting materials on construction sites, but some models are designed also to handle buckets and other attachments.

We offer certification on the Telescopic Handler from the following awarding bodies: CPCS, NPORS, RTITB.

We accept SDS Individual Training Account (ITA) funding for this course.
