Training Program


This training program involves the skills and knowledge required to operate a forklift with specialised attachments or all-terrain equipment, including checking attachments and worksite for suitability, selecting the type of forklift and accessories for required load shifting tasks, and shifting load and completing work in accordance with operational requirements. Assessment of this unit will be undertaken within the licensing examination conducted by a nationally registered WorkSafe accredited assessor.


An operator of a forklift must be over the age of 18 years. Training can commence under direct supervision once a person has reached 17 years of age. However, they must be enrolled in the training program with a registered training organisation. White Card
