Course Overview

This course is designed for individuals with little or no experience who need to attain a forklift licence. This is a high risk work licence course and learners must be at least 18 years of age.

This course is nationally recognised (LF) and is conducted by experienced trainers/assessors who provided supervised experience in driving a conventional forklift.

Over the duration of this course, participants are taught how to perform safety checks and safely operate a forklift with the intention of obtaining their forklift licence.

 

This unit specifies the skills and knowledge required to operate a forklift truck safely.

Forklift truck means a powered industrial truck equipped with lifting media made up of a mast and an elevating load carriage to which is attached a pair of fork arms or other arms that can be raised 900 mm or more above the ground, but does not include a pedestrian-operated truck or a pallet truck.
