Angus Lift Trucks Training

At Angus, we pride ourselves on Providing RTITB Accredited training at our dedicated Training Centre and at very competitive prices. Equally, we are happy to provide training at your work site.

Our accredited and experienced instructors provide thorough and professional training for the following operators:

  • Novice: For individuals who have no experience whatsoever of operating any lift truck
  • Experienced: For the experienced operator who has extensive practical experience though has never received any form of initial training
  • Refresher: This course is designed for operators who wish to refresh their certification following its expiry
  • Conversion: For certificated operators of other types of lift truck need only a one day conversion to move over to Reach Truck


Angus Lift Trucks Training delivers professionally accredited training in the safe operation and driving of a range of material handling equipment including Forklift Trucks, Access Platforms (Cherry-Picker, Scissor Lifts), Telescopic Handlers etc.

We train on all makes and models as well as offering conversion courses from one truck type to another.

We are centrally located in the Midlands, but wherever you are based, we will travel to your premises anywhere in the UK to deliver on-site training.

Training on your premises can sometimes be regarded as an advantage as it allows the trainee to not only familiarise themselves with their working environment but also with the type of machine.

About the RTITB


RTITB is recognised throughout the United Kingdom and Ireland as one of the leading material handling equipment training accrediting bodies. RTITB is a founder member of the Accrediting Bodies Association (for Workplace Transport); this association replaced the accrediting bodies forum previously run by the HSE.

They have over 40 years’ experience of setting training standards, accreditation and monitoring.

The RTITB accreditation schemes are supported by legal requirements for training; the Health and Safety at Work Etc Act 1974 prescribes a legal duty to provide adequate training and instruction to all their employees. This is reinforced by the Provision & Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 which states that all persons using work equipment must be trained, including the methods of using equipment, any risks and precautions to be taken.

The RTITB accreditation schemes and standards are guided by the Approved Code of Practice for Rider-operated lift trucks: Operator training (ACOP L117). The code has special legal status. If you are prosecuted for breach of health and safety law, and it is proved that you did not follow the relevant provisions of the code, you will need to show that you have complied with the law in some other way or a court will find you at fault.



We are accredited by the RTITB, who are recognised by the Health and Safety Executive and Health and Safety Authority as competent to operate accreditation schemes for Lift Truck Operator training.

As an RTITB accredited training provider we are monitored annually to ensure we are maintaining our high standards set down by the RTITB.

All of our instructors are RTITB registered and equally work to the same high standards and are monitored throughout the year.
