Forklift Training

eTruck Blended Course

RTITB is changing forklift truck training with its new offering, eTruck UK – a completely unique digital storytelling tool that will increase training effectiveness and CRC are using the E-Truck to support our delivery within the forklift centre.

What’s this course about?

eTruck is an award-winning digital storytelling system which provides a new way to cover the theory content for materials handling equipment operator training. With eTruck UK, candidates will learn by following a story that tackles real issues relating to safety. The digital storytelling platform allows more complex themes – such as driver behaviour. eTruck UK is a totally online system, enabling candidates to complete the theory training on a computer or tablet, in the workplace or at home, before attending practical training and taking their final assessments. For a novice, this can reduce the time taken to complete counterbalance lift truck operator training from 5 days to 3 days.

During the Covid 19 Closure

During the period of Covid-19, we are proposing to offer eTruck training to those who are needing to refresh their licenses. This extends the life of the RTITB license for a period of 12 months. The cost of this is £149.

Reopening of the Training Centre

We will then be offering a £10% discount to any learner who has completed the eTruck when they return to the Forklift Training Centre for their refresher training – usually £600.
