  • workstation preparation, 
  • device control,  
  • basic maintenance skills, 
  • working in different conditions, 
  • everything to do with UDT, 
  • categories of equipment, 
  • required formal aspects, 

Examination before the Board

Completion of our course is not synonymous with being certified and being able to work. First of all, you have to pass a state examination before a commission from the Office of Technical Inspection. The examination, like the training itself, consists of a theoretical and practical part. Our training always takes into account all current requirements for passing the exam. 

Courses - location  

All courses are conducted at the company's central office in Warsaw and at regional locations throughout Poland. We take into account the possibility of conducting classes at the customer's location. The course may be closed or open. Price and date depend on the interest in a given training course. More details can be found on our website.

Telescopic loader 

Telescopic handlers are included in a special category of the Technical Inspection Authority called handling equipment. They are mainly involved in work that requires loading and unloading of materials in warehouses, production and transhipment halls. Telescopic handlers, like all handling equipment, are subject to inspections and registration with the Office of Technical Inspection, which means that in order to work as a telehandler, you first need to obtain the relevant qualifications. This is what our course prepares you for.  

Description of telescopic handlers 

The most important application of telehandlers is their use for handling bulky materials that, for various reasons, cannot be moved with forklifts or similar equipment. They are particularly well suited to handling loads at heights of up to several tens of metres. 

The telehandler consists of a telescopic boom that extends both horizontally and vertically.  

Telehandler categories 

The chargers are divided into: 

  • frontal, 
  • rotating.
