FAQs for PMG
PMG provides labor solutions to American manufacturers. That’s what we do in a nutshell and we take the “solution” part of that equation seriously. As a result, all of us here end up asking a lot of questions to make sure we find the right way to solve the real problem. Additionally, the community asks a fair amount of questions too. In this blog, PMG answers the most common questions.
Do I need a forklift certification?
Great question! Forklift operation certifications are very common in the manufacturing industry, but you don’t need to carry an “active” forklift certification to be eligible to work on a PMG project. However, having been previously certified to operate a forklift is very much preferred experience for our technicians. This is simply because anyone who uses a forklift on our projects will have to certify to that client’s in-house standards while onsite.
There are other certifications that are occasionally required for a technician to be eligible to work on PMG projects. The most common of these are OSHA and/or MSHA safety certifications as well as Commercial Driver’s Licenses (CDLs).
Interested in More?
There are many other licenses and certifications, besides those previously mentioned, that can significantly help a technician qualify for a position or help themselves stand out amongst all those who do.
