New Operator Takeaways
Upon completion, each new operator gets a certificate for your safety records.
While there is no specific "Forklift Certification" available to California forklift drivers, the Cromer New Operator course meets OSHA requirements for safety training. You can consider your drivers "certified" to operate forklifts safely after taking this course, as hundreds throughout California do every year.
