Craven Community College (Craven CC) will offer a new Clamp Shell Forklift Operator training at the Volt Center to help fill immediate job openings at BSH. This training opportunity will be divided into two options: a 32-hour evening class beginning Sept. 21, and a 56-hour weekend class beginning Sept. 26.
Each class will include a four-hour tour of the BSH Distribution Center to see the operations firsthand. The program will include specific training that BSH felt was most needed for individuals to be successful in material handling operations.
Training topics include:
- Understanding OSHA requirements for safe material handling operations
- Hands-on operation of a sit-down rider and clamp shell attachment forklift
- Fall protection
- Inspections of lifts
- Proper use of all controls
- Narrow aisle operations
- Heavy traffic operations
- Loading and offloading of trailers
During the course of the program, BSH and NCWorks will register and pre-qualify students for job interviews with BSH.
