The classes were normally easy and not very long. The teachers let us all passed and at the end we were able to test drive the forklift and tour the building where we would work.

Very good teacher at SWIC. The class was 4 months every Tuesday and Thursday 4 PM to 8:30 PM. On the 4th month we went to rosewood care center in Edwardsville and did hands on training. The test was on the 5th month and I think about 100 questions.

It's just a one day class so if you know how to operate its pretty easy and the teacher gives you a good understanding on the book part of the class.
