Bendi / Flexi Courses now available
Bendi / Flexi Pivot Steer forklifts are becoming increasingly popular due to their ability to operate in narrow aisles and their flexibility when compared to conventional Very Narrow Aisle order pickers. We are now able to offer Bendi / Flexi Articulated forklift safety refreshers and conversions at our Coventry training centre in a simulated warehouse environment. Courses are of 1 or 2 day duration and group sizes are kept small to ensure trainees benefit from the maximum amount of time available on the truck.
