The Alabama Robotics Technology Park is designed to close the skills gap within the robotics industry, while also ensuring that students obtain training on the latest robotic technology in the industry.
The forklift safety class includes blended classroom training (including virtual training) along with hands on instruction. The classroom portion covers the following topics:
Lift truck Fundamentals
General Rules of the Road
Safe Load Handling Techniques
Refueling Gasoline, Diesel and LP Lift Trucks
Battery Charging and Changing
There is a written exam at the end of the classroom session. The hands-on portion will involve pre-operational checks, followed by two circuits of the obstacle course without any major infractions. A major infraction requires the trainee to complete the course a third time. The hands-on portion will be done on a LP powered lift truck.
