Course Details

When choosing a Forklift Training course, it is important for you to pick the right one for the skills you require. For example, our Forklift Training course will give you an LF forklift licence (counter balance forklift), which will enable you to drive any forklift (with the exception of an order picker forklift).

Legislation requires Forklift refresher training every five (5) years.

This course covers the operation of a powered industrial truck equipped with a mast and an elevating load carriage to which is attached a pair of fork arms or other attachment, for licensing purposes.

This Forklift course requires the operator to be able plan the work, conduct routine checks on the forklift, shift loads in a safe manner, and shut down and secure the equipment after the completion of operations.

This unit is based on the National Standard for Licensing Persons Performing High Risk Work.

This Forklift Training course is suited to all operators working in:

  • Warehouse
  • Transport
  • Construction
  • Events
  • Retail

If organising staff training or onsite training, we can facilitate the Forklift Training nationally.

If your health or fitness restricts you from performing physical activities associated with this program, you will not be able to complete this Forklift Training course.

If you believe you will need assistance due to your Language, Literacy or Numeracy skills, please contact our office on 02 9232 1010 to discuss your Forklift Training needs.

All assessments are conducted in English and therefore all students must be able to complete the theory and practical assessments without an interpreter.

Students will be assessed on classroom theory and practical Forklift Training. Assessment will confirm knowledge and skills have been achieved to demonstrate competency across the unit.

General FAQs

Can Centrelink pay for me?

What you need to do is register with your local Job Network Agent. Your Employment Consultant will make the booking with us on your behalf and arrange payment with us directly. Unfortunately Centrelink does not pay directly.

Can I pay my package in installments?

Unfortunately we cannot offer this service, full payment of course fees are required at the time of booking. The good news is that we try to always offer value for money and keep course fees affordable, so you know that you are always getting good value, especially with our package deals which offer reduced prices!

What if I have trouble with written/spoken english for a Course?

Most courses will permit a student to bring a friend to interpret for them during training. If you do need assistance, we ask that you contact first before booking your course so we can advise if there are any restrictions. For example, Forklift training requires students to complete all assessments in English.

If the course permits, you may bring a friend along to the course or, alternatively, you can phone the National Translation service to book an interpreter. Visit the Immigration website for more information about help with translating.

What payment methods do you accept?

Payment can be made at the time of booking using either a credit card, EFTPOS or cash. Invoices and acceptance of company cheques is by prior arrangement only.

When is my booking confirmed?

Your booking is confirmed once we receive full payment of course fees. Unfortunately there are rare occasions where the course will sell out prior to you finalising payment.  In this situation a member of our customer service team will get in contact to organise an alternate training date.
