New Innovative Training Delivery for Mandatory Forklift RefreshersOnline Forklift refresher course

We offer a range of refresher courses where trainees can complete the theory component online, afterwards booking into a practical with AMS Group. It saves you doing the theory at an AMS Group site, allowing a trainee to complete the theory part in a place and time that suits them.

Who should attend

This course is for you if you are already certified as a Forklift Operator and your certification is about to expire or needs renewing. This course is a good option if you prefer to complete the theory part of the refresher online in your own time, and then book your practical after as a standalone event.

If you have a good understanding of computers and can work through an online course, then this course will allow you to complete the theory online, while reducing your time needed away from the workplace to complete the practical part of the refresher.

When you complete and pass your practical, you will receive a Refresher Forklift certificate.

If you are not a certified Forklift Operator or have not previously completed Forklift Operator training, please contact us. We'll book you onto the right course. Phone us on 0800 267 476.


Online theory plus a practical session conducted on an AMS site.


Open for the online theory and a maximum of 10 in a day for the practical.

Course Content

The online module covers the theory part for you to refresh your Forklift Operators certificate. This is required every 3 years after you first gain your Forklift Operator certificate.

A theory refresher certificate will be emailed to you once you successfully completed the theory refresher online. You need to then book your practical assessment by going to our course booking section.

Please take your theory refresher certificate along to your practical. Once you are assessed as achieving your practical you will receive a full Forklift Operators certificate.


You need to hold an existing Forklift Operator Certificate to enrol in this course, that is about to expire, or needs renewing. To complete the online theory of Forklift we recommend that trainees use a desktop PC or tablet. It is not recommended that it is completed on a smartphone.
