HR Non Synchro
I had the most encouraging, and very adaptable instructor Troy Lynch, asked what my best ways of learning were, and worked with me to get my abilities well prepared for the future jobs….
As well as the best idea ever changing trucks from my favourite drive “burtha” the freightliner to the UD not only does this teach the student versatility for prospective transport career options but going from bonneted, to cab over and long stick floor shift to short stick floor shift among other controls that differ is such a great learning and industry readying training….
Top training, top trainer and smiles and giggles are allowed but make sure you sponge yourself up while getting instructors in the passenger seat.
We have just bought our own warehouse to operate our company from. There were 3 of us sitting our Forklift license.
Scott was our very patient teacher. He did an amazing job, very calm and very informative.
Don’t think it is an easy course because it most definitely is not ! So much to learn….not only about the forklift but about all of the protocols and safety regulations that go with driving the Forklift.
Well done to all of our class who passed their test.
An Amazing Experience
I was fortunate to have Peter for my HR License.
He put me at ease, was patient, professional and he understands his neighbourhood, picking the perfect time for my test.
