Powered Industrial Lift Truck Certification (Class 4 & 5) in Portland, OR | Local 488

The Powered Industrial Lift Truck (P.I.T.) Training Course is set up very similar to our Elevated WorkPlatform Training Course. We use the Ives Training and Compliance Program for the base of the training. We then expand to Entertainment Industry specific training. We have one day of classroom time where students receive all the valuable theory information OSHA wants us to have, followed by a theory evaluation that is a pass or fail 80%. Upon completion of the theory evaluation the student will pick a time slot where they will begin the Practical Training portion of the course. This is a 3 hour time slot where we work hands on, developing and honing forklift skills on a class 4 and class 5 Powered Industrial Lift Trucks. Training will be followed by a practical evaluation where students perform various tasks on the equipment and are graded on their performance. This is a pass or fail test. After the student passes the course for the Class 4 and 5 P.I.T.’s. they will have the option to sign up for the Class 7 (rough Terrain/Telehandler) course. The class 7 is a separate (upgrade) for the Forklift Cert. It is the same process with one day for classroom the upon completion student picks a block of time for practical training and evaluation.

Day 1 :

  • Introduction to Powered Industrial Lift Trucks
  • Industry specific theory & theory evaluation
  • Site inspection and equipment inspections.
  • Day 1 of the course is typically 4.5-6.5 hours in length.

Day 2: Hands On Training: Participants will work one on one with a trainers on the equipment in an intensive review and training session.
