BELDEN, Miss. (WTVA) - People of all ages gathered at the Belden campus of Itawamba Community College to further their education on forklifts to prepare themselves for future jobs.

This is an entry-level course for people who are just beginning. They start in the classroom, teaching the basics, then go to practicing on a simulator and finally head to the workshop to drive an actual forklift.

"(It) gives you the basics of a forklift, how to operate it, especially the safety of it because a lot of people don't understand that these things are so heavy, heavier than a car, so they are extremely dangerous. That's why a person needs to be trained," said Workforce Instructor Stacy Step.

The course is just a one-day class from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. Anyone interested can sign up. The cost is $65. Seven people are needed for the class to meet.

Those interested can contact ICC-Belden at 662-407-1141.
