Most service people gain the most knowledge from hands on experience. What do you do for a living? Tech schools are a good starting point.

Have an electro / mechanical background for starters.
I wasn't a forklift apprentice, i actually trained as a domestic, commercial and industrial electrician and have an interest in building motorbike engines.

Got a job as workshop electrician at the local Cat dealer and got on product courses and other training course, i actually self taught myself air conditioning systems, before it all got legally controlled in the early 90's.

Having basics skills and understanding helps, but enthusiasm and commitment will take you further.
good luck.

It would surprise you to find out how many techs in the lift truck industry have an aviation background. Either military or civilian tech schools teach a really good basic skill set needed for this industry. These days you really need to be a good at electrical troubleshooting on all equipment. When I started gas trucks were just basic engine, trans , lift pumps. Now they are complicated with just about every kind of interface with the ECM and vehicle controllers you c an think of.It is just a vain attempt to cover up the fact that a lot of operators cannot figure out how to drive this equipment without doing a lot of damage to it. When you idiot proof something , along comes a smarter idiot.
