Skill up in downturn

Jocelyn Doherty, who owns the training business Forklift and Mechanical Services (FMS), said she had heavily reduced service fees for some of the courses to make it easier for people who may be struggling.“As the credit crisis surges on, it’s important for the unemployed and students to carefully consider alternative career paths,” Doherty said.“Right now I place significant importance in helping people to skill up during this financial crisis and this our way of contributing.“We provide beginners’ courses at a competitive price for those who cannot get log book experience, mainly for the unemployed or those new to the industry,” Doherty said. FMS Training Services, located about 20 kilometres north of Brisbane in Lawnton, says it is the only forklift training provider which has the facility to provide a simulated work environment where students complete a log book with a Workplace Health and Safety-approved Forklift Trainer and Assessor, instead of a warehouse supervisor.
