WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

Training Quote 

American Eagle Lift Truck Service is committed to safety in the workplace. Each year the improper use of forklifts and other lifting equipment causes injury and even loss of life to employees. Certified forklift operator training can potentially save businesses thousands of dollars each year.

We offer a dedicated training here at our facility for companies and individuals or classes can be held at your business facility on a company basis with a minimum of 5 operators.

Forklift instruction takes approximately 4 hours for classes up to 10 people.
