    I did mine with Goldcross. It's not like a CISRS course, as you can actually fail it. And people do. 2 in my group did.

    The forklift is your friend. Be nice, even if he's a c**t. Once you have him on side and he's doing your lifts before everyone elses your day will go smoother.

    They are generally ok, however they can be a right pain for wanting things done their way, even down to wanting specific size baseboards.
