Most of the certifications are BS because you do them online and never actually drive a forklift. Any good company will have you do specific tasks while they watch until you pass their visual test. Turning in tight places,pulling pallets off of the top shelf in the warehouse and putting it back, things like that and check it out for damage and maintenance before running.

Hey @CARLOS Veg

You can earn your forklift operator certification by taking an OSHA-approved course either in person or online. Many people choose to attend training in person through a vocational school or a local company. These courses include classroom work, a written test and hands-on training and evaluation.

I searched forklift driver job opportunities in your area.

Good Luck.

@George Haley Some duties I used to complete were loading and unloading trailers, picking orders, replenishing bins, material handling, putting away product, etc. Those are the basics, but it depends on the company you work for.
