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 a onsite training, we can facilitate the Forklift Training nationally.
