The Lift Truck Operator Training Program
Every day, more than a million lift trucks are at work across America.

Interactive Media Communications presents The Lift Truck Operator
Training Program, a comprehensive program developed in association
with Weyerhaeuser Corporation, to meet the training requirement of the
