Course overview

This qualification will appeal to those who use a teleporter as part of their work in agriculture, horticulture or distribution and warehousing.

This course provides instruction and assessment for lift truck operators on rough terrain or telescopic forklifts. It has been developed to cover the “basic training” requirements of the Approved Code of Practice for Rider Operated Forklift Trucks. This does not replace any legal requirement for a driving licence.

The assessment covers:

  • the associated differences between use
  • operation and maintenance of the machines
  • pre-use maintenance and safety checks
  • recognition of controls
  • instruments

The course content includes:

  • Safety, Machine Suitability,
  • Practice,
  • Instruction,
  • Principles of Operation.

The course fee includes the NPTC assessment which is arranged to take place after the training. You will be required to take a practical test where the teleporter is driven around a suitable course and the operator will be required to move and stack various loads, the test will also include one-to-one verbal questioning.

You will need to bring: PPE and writing materials to take your course note on the day.


This course leads to C&G NPTC Award 0014-16 via competency assessment. Assessment will take place separately from your training course; the date and time will be arranged directly with the NPTC. Please submit a clear, passport-style photo to in advance of your course for your ID card registration. Failure to do this will incur a charge if additional certificates or ID cards need to be issued. If you have any queries about the assessment please contact the NPTC at 01603 731250. Successful candidates will be awarded their certificate directly from the NPTC.

NPTC – Disabilities and Access Arrangements

Please inform us immediately, if you have not already done so, of any disabilities that may disadvantage you in the successful completion of your assessment; for example, if you have dyslexia or English is not your first language or any mild disability which may require you to have some assistance. Under guidance from C&G, we can make access arrangements for some learners to demonstrate their competence under assessment, without changing the demands of that assessment. Examples of access arrangements include readers, scribes, extra time, or modified assessment material. However, as Certificates of Competence are vocational qualifications, candidates must achieve all the required units to gain a full qualification, and the awarding body will not make adjustments to the required competence standards. As an example, pesticide product labels detail essential information, and it is of paramount importance that a candidate can read and interpret this information to comply with legislative and operational requirements. If the candidate is unable to read and/or interpret a product label without assistance then they will not be deemed competent to practice, as if such a person were working without supervision in the workplace, there is the potential for a serious incident to occur. If you would like to discuss this further or make access arrangements for your assessment, then please contact NPTC directly at 01603 731250.
