Quality Commitment
Kwazuna Training defines quality as: “Consistently meeting or exceeding the needs and expectations of customers, learners, staff members and stakeholders”

The Code of Practice requires that all lifting machinery/equipment Operators are trained regardless of the capacity of the lifting machine/equipment by accredited providers.

For your convenience we have grouped our learning programs and services together in the following categories:
Forklift or Lift trucks F1 to F16
Overhead cranes C30 to C31

Purpose of the Unit Standard
A learner accredited with these Unit Standards will be able to demonstrate an integrated practical and theoretical grounding in both Lift Truck and Overhead Crane operations according to safe handling, maintenance, stacking of freight in a variety of work environments and take basic care of equipment in compliance with Lift Truck and Crane manufacturer’s and legislated standards.
