It is part of my job qualifications. Was a really easy class to go through. Would recommend it to anyone. Basic knowledge of forklifting operations taught.

Good combination of education utilizing a test book from NAVSEA and of course hands on training with all the tools, parts and equipment needed to get the job completed.
