Licence to operate a forklift truck - Formal Course Work
Who Should Attend
Any person wishing to gain the skills required to obtain a High Risk Work Licence to operate forklift.
The aim of this course is to provide the participant with adequate knowledge to successfully complete the assessments required prior to application for a high risk work licence to operate a forklift.
On completion of this course, participants will know:
- Workplace Health & Safety Regulations and requirements
- Underpinning knowledge & skills requirement (load shifting and calculations)
- Equipment safety and specific theory
- Practical operation of the machinery – operator checks and services, lifting techniques, communication
Participants must be 18 years old to undergo the assessment process. Training and log book hours can be undertaken prior to turning 18. Please contact our office to discuss your options.
Participants who have previous experience in Forklift operations are welcome to supply evidence to an ASTA HRW Assessor for review and approval.
During the initial first day of Formal Course Work (Classroom) the participants have access to support material for Forklifts, power point presentations and safety videos. Hand outs relevant to forklift operations will also be provided. Each participant will be required to complete an in class self-assessment.
All participants will be issued with a Log Book which includes a training plan and a full explanation of the requirements for both the participant and the employer/supervisor. The participant is required to log on the job hours to show current competency. This is to be supervised and signed off by a current ticket holder. The required hours are decided on skill, experience and evidence supplied.
A separate enrolment is to be completed for the 1-day assessment. Once the participants log book hours and/or evidence are verified by the trainer, the participant will undertake a written theory assessment and a practical assessment. This can take place at ASTA or conducted onsite. Please be advised that more than 3 working days notice must be given to WHSQ to conduct any assessment process.
On successful completion of the assessments, participants will receive a Statement of Attainment for TLILIC2001 Licence to operate a forklift truck and an information pack on how to lodge for their High Risk Work Licence at Australia Post.
This licence is renewable every 5 years.
The course will be delivered via a face-to-face format in either ASTA training rooms or at your workplace, depending on numbers, client requirements and training facilities.
