TVH Academy in cooperation with F-TEC

TVH partners with F-TEC in Swindon

Since September 2016, TVH Parts NV partners with F-TEC to provide technical and technical-commercial training courses in the UK. F-TEC is a training centre, based in Swindon, dedicated to meet the needs of the forklift industry.

Recognition for quality of TVH’s training courses

TVH established its own Academy in Waregem, Belgium, in 2008. As TVH has becomes a partner in this association with F-TEC, it confirms the professionalism of the TVH Academy and that the quality and content of the TVH training courses are valued and respected.

The collaboration has already started and the first courses took place back in January 2017. The trainers of F-TEC have and are working with TVH through ‘train the trainer’ sessions at the TVH Academy in Waregem, to ensure that training is delivered at every location in a consistent manner.

Benefits of this cooperation

Customers and trainees will benefit from this cooperation by receiving training for their technical and non-technical staff in the electronic and mechanical principles that are present in all types of industrial vehicles. These courses will initially be based on forklift truck technology; however it is the intention of TVH and F-TEC to provide training to other sectors of their customer base in the near future.


F-TEC has at its disposal several modified classrooms and practical training rooms. All classrooms are equipped with the necessary didactic materials to exemplify the subject matter optimally, both the theoretical and the practical part of the matter.

In 2008 TVH established its own training centre: now called TVH Academy in Belgium.

Since 2015 TVH Academy has been a VCA-approved examination centre. This means that our driver training courses meet the specific standards of the 'Register Risicovolle Taken' (Register of High-Risk Tasks).

TVH Academy offers a wide variety of training courses: both driver training and technical training courses and this for both internal employees and customers.  The driver training is only available for Belgian citizens.

For the technical training courses we use didactic suitcases and test configurations to clearly explain the theoretical background in practice. This way the participants can apply the theoretical principles on real machines.

The TVH Academy has a spacious car park and a refectory with a microwave and refrigerator. At the beginning of the training there is a possibility to order sandwiches for lunch and drinks are available for purchase. Water and coffee is available throughout the day.

Alternatively, training courses could also be arranged on customer site.
