Requirements for trainers seminars

Detailed information about your ISM Trainer Seminar.

1. general requirement

General prerequisite that the participants should fulfil for the training of forklift truck instructors / crane instructors / aerial work platform operators / load securing instructors according to the legal as well as the specifications of the DGUV (BGB, MRL, MBRL, ProdSG, ArbSchG, ArbSiG, BetrSichV; forklift trucks/telescopic forklifts : DGUV Grundsatz 308-001, 308-009 DGUV Vorschrift 68, crane: DGUV Grundsatz 309-003, DGUV Vorschrift 52, aerial work platforms: DGUV Rule 100-500, DGUV Principle 308-008, load securing: VDI 2700 ff) should be fulfilled:

The participant is at least 24 years old, already has two years' experience in handling or using forklift trucks/cranes/lifting platforms/load securing,
has himself/herself successfully completed training as a driver of industrial trucks/crane operator/lifting platform operator/load securing,
is active as a foreman or in an equivalent position for at least four years. The participant is therefore qualified to draw up training concepts, to impart specialist knowledge, to lead a group through a training course; this applies, for example, to IHK-certified AEVO instructors, master craftsmen, engineers, occupational safety specialists or, of course, teachers or driving instructors.

Here the claim of the Berufsgenossenschaften is justified and thus, if implemented accordingly, recognition is also given:

Trainers for forklift truck drivers/crane drivers/lifting platform operators must themselves be suitable and trained as forklift truck drivers/crane drivers/lifting platform operators and also as trainers: this means, for example, the AEVO training, which takes place, for example, as part of a master craftsman training.
Driving instructors or teachers in general, for example, also receive pedagogical training as part of their training and are therefore also suitable and trained accordingly. In the case of a corresponding professional activity, this is also to be regarded as fulfilled in the individual case. It is of course also possible to carry out the driver/operator training at the same time as the seminar, if required.

Crane training takes place on a bridge crane, jib crane and/or on various truck-mounted loading cranes; aerial work platform training on scissor and telescopic aerial work platforms (mobile and/or truck-mounted telescopic platform), here too driver training is possible in the seminar if required.

In the case of "in-house seminars" (which we generally highly recommend!) the practical training takes place on the work equipment (crane/forklift/lifting platform) in your company.

It is therefore clear that our seminar is part of the proof of competence that must be provided so that the requirements of the BG can be considered fulfilled.
Only when all the above-mentioned requirements have been met can you work as a trainer for forklift truck drivers/crane drivers/lifting platform operators.

It is therefore possible to start with this seminar and complete other parts (e.g. the AEVO training or the forklift driver/crane operator/lifting platform operator training) later or at the same time.

These are the criteria of the BG, which we fully comply with and thus our trainer seminar is of course also the required proof of participation in a seminar for forklift/crane/lifting platform trainers; passing the examination parts is of course a prerequisite!
