Testimonials

Very informative class… I learned a lot about the ground control system, site, and vehicle inspection.… Greg was an awesome instructor… Went through every safety protocol stickers, safety, everything. I would recommend this course to people that have been driving these lifts for years. I have been driving these lifts for approximately 20 years and I still find it very informative.

Our company recently utilized Vertical Technology for equipment safety training with forklifts, excavators, and skid steers. VT assisted with our certifications making it a very smooth and enjoyable process. Greg and his crew are informative, friendly, and helpful when it comes to ensuring your team understands the fundamentals of operating equipment comfortably and safely.

We got our crew certified with 5 different types of equipment in just two days. The process of certification is not drawn out, yet they take just enough time so that every participant can confidently operate the desired equipment.

Highly recommend going to Vertical Technologies for rental equipment and safety training courses. Both their equipment rentals and certification training courses are priced competitively, and our team is extremely satisfied going with VT!

Took the class for the boom lift. The course is informative and Greg does a good job of making sure everyone understands the source material. Where he shines is in the hands-on portion. You can tell he knows these machines in and out and does a great job walking everyone through how to do inspections and operate the equipment. The written and operating tests are both fair. I would recommend anyone who needs any sort of lift training to consider going with Vertical Technologies. The material cover is top notch and the cost per person certified is more than fair!

Greg and Justin were our instructors for the training. They did a great job of providing the knowledge and skills the students/trainees needed to obtain at the end of the class. I recommend this company and definitely use them again for other equipment training.

I have rented equipment from Vertical Technologies for several construction projects. The office staff has always been helpful and each time I have scheduled deliveries they have been very prompt. The delivery people are always friendly and are eager to answer any questions you may have about the rental equipment. I wish other firms were as organized and efficient as these guys! Two thumbs way up.

Excellent scissors lift and boom lift safety courses. Also, fall protection courses. Gary was awesome. Very resourceful and an expert in this area people don’t want to take for granted the safety of the equipment and the safe use of these machines.

Vertical Technologies has been a lifesaver. Danielle is so helpful and fast. She replies fast to my emails and if I’m ever in a bind and need something quick, she tries everything possible to help me out. Love working with them!

I am an active member of the Hawaii Local 665 and just completed an instructional course that Vertical Technology offers at their Mapunapuna campus. This was not just an in-the-book kind of course and then a quiz. This instructional course and instructors have been in the field and are very experienced not just with equipment but have information and step to step do’s and do not’s that only come with years of experience. They share vital information that is preventive and that could make a difference while operating these types of heavy equipment. This is a hands-on class so don’t think you’re going to come in slippers and sit at a desk for 8 hours. Be ready to put on a harness and get in the driver’s seat. The Instructor knows exactly what level you are at and will work with you hands-on. It was so informative and the level of professionalism was amazing. I left not only with certification and credentials. But I left feeling competent and with an assurance that I can be put on any one of these machines and know that not only my safety but the safety of others is in good hands being and knowing the level of information and hands-on training I was taught.

Mahalo Greg for the awesome forklift training! The guys really enjoyed your class, and your method of instruction was right on! Even the guys who have been operating forklifts for years learned some new things in your class. We highly recommend you to all companies and will continue to use Vertical Technologies for all our powered industrial equipment training needs! Mahalo again!

Just completed Certification Classes for Forklift, Telehandler, Boom Lift, and Scissor Lift. Our Instructor Greg and his assistant Bob are very thorough and informative. I am a member of IATSE Local 665, and I recommend this Safety and Operator Certification.

Probably the most accommodating and helpful instructor I can remember in my lifetime. Greg answered all our questions and made sense of his descriptions which made the course flow.
Mahalos for the great service.

Greg is a very knowledgeable and caring instructor for the Boom/Scissors safety class.  He knows his stuff and I am confident that he helps save lives by teaching this course.  I highly recommend Greg…

I’ve taken a few forklift certification classes in the past along with other DOT and OSHA classes. In my opinion, Greg hit a home run. His materials, explanations, and stories were very insightful. Not only was Greg a great instructor but VT has a lot of newer equipment and ALL will pass any onsite inspection. Great job Greg!
