MHEDA has joined forces with the Manufacturing Skill Standards Council (MSSC) to launch a Certified Forklift Technician (CFT) accreditation.
The CFT is a nationally portable, industry-led, hands-on training and assessment certification program designed to prepare individuals with in-demand skills to maintain, service and repair forklifts.
The CFT was created to raise the performance of forklift technicians, both to assist individuals in finding higher-paying jobs and to help employers find more talent and ensure their workforce is skilled. This, in turn, increases the company's productivity and competitiveness.
From October 1, dealerships, manufacturers, community colleges, technical schools and high schools can order CFT courseware and begin implementing the CFT.
