Very Narrow Aisle Truck (Man Down)

VRN-Pic-Next-to-Video-edited

The Narrow Aisle Forklift Truck is used in industry inside a warehouse. They are guided by either a rail or wire system and the operator only steers them when moving from one aisle to another. They are either a Very Narrow Aisle Man Up Forklift, where the operator is rasied up to the picking level, or Very Narrow Aisle Man Down Forklift, where the operator stays on ground level.  Operators of the VNA Forklift truck are required to hold a certificate of training which shows they have attended a training course and passed a test to a set national standard.

Ace Trainers hold ITSSAR accreditation and are able to offer Forklift Truck Training at customer premises around the UK.  Certificates can be restricted to “in-house” to suit the job role of the operator or nationally accredited with ITSSAR.

Their names and details are kept on a National Operators Registration Scheme Database. The certificate is valid throughout the UK and will be recognised by both employment agencies and perspective employers.

*This is optional, and if employers prefer, we can supply in-house certificates, only allowing the candidates to operate for your company Only.*
