Proper maintenance and inspection of forklifts in today’s modern industry is essential to the expeditious; safe; and proper handling of materials.
Any forklift is considered a complex machine, requiring specialized skills in order to detect problems and verify proper operation of the lift and all attachments. Knowledge and understanding of the dynamic forces involved with lifting even light loads must be applied by the competent person conducting the inspection.
Mechanical failures do occur; the intent of inspection is to assess equipment condition, and report to the equipment owner. The overall idea is to prevent accidents; injury; and damaged goods or equipment; not to mention the resulting costs.
In order to be qualified, employers should insist that inspectors undergo initial and recurrent training in the inspection procedures applicable to the type of equipment involved. This training should include the successful completion of both written and practical examinations. CICB’s Forklift Inspector Course is a one-day program and is recommended for anybody that is conducting frequent or periodic inspections.

Our site has been using CICB for a number of years to train and maintain certification for our crane operators. They exhibit an extensive background in the crane industry and their approach to training is very thorough and comprehensive. CICB’s professional instructors are highly dedicated and motivate everyone in the class to strive for excellence. The material is well-organized and the training is presented in a clear and concise manner. The classroom instruction and actual hands-on training go beyond our expectations. Our employees leave the class with a better understanding of crane operation, their capabilities, and job safety.”
This class was one of the best I have ever coordinated for our employees! Jason was, by far, the best instructor I have ever seen present an extremely technical course. His personality was perfect for the audience and made him very relatable. His technical proficiency was exemplary! He is completely capable of and, for the most part, did teach the entire class without referring to the slides or reference material. He also went way above and beyond in his commitment to ensuring the students not only learned but retained the material and stayed late into each evening to assist those requiring additional assistance. The employees could not say enough great things about Jason's skills and commitment to learning. We now have 10 employees trained to operate our cranes and, even though the majority of them do not work together, a group of employees that overcame some adversity and became a cohesive team. They are begging me to bring the CICB back!”
The Instructor Larry Kime is absolutely one of the best instructors I have ever had, and I have a degree in mechanical engineering. Larry’s knowledge both written and practical is current and accessible. I would recommend Larry to a new beginner or someone that has been in the lifting industry their whole career
