TVH Academy

In 2008 TVH established its own training centre: the TVH Academy​.

Since 2015 the 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).

The TVH Academy offers a wide variety of trainings: both driver trainings and technical trainings and this for both internal employees and customers.


The TVH Academy 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.

At the TVH Academy we offer driver training courses for lift trucks, reach trucks, telehandlers, aerial work platforms and more warehouse equipment. For the driver trainings we have a practice area where the participants can practise their driving skills. On this practice area there are various tracks and different loads such as a container and a lorry platform. This way we simulate a working environment and the participant learns to control the machine in a lifelike situation.

The TVH Academy recently became a VCA-authorised examination centre for Dutch- and French-language driver training courses. This qualification means that our driver training courses are in conformity with the specific standards of the Register of High-Risk Tasks.

Consult the calendar for the possibilities and dates for training courses in the TVH Academy. We can also offer on-site training courses at your premises both in Dutch and in French. Furthermore we also provide bespoke training courses: on-site in your company, or on location in Sint-Niklaas (Industriepark West 41A - Sint-Niklaas). Contact us for more info.

For the technical trainings 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.
