The course is 3 days, however those with experience in using forklifts in the workplace may wish to join on Day 2. If you wish to do this, GTS can provide study materials to prepare. Students without experience are unlikely to pass the practical assessment using this option.

On successful completion a Statement of Attainment is issued from Gladstone Training Services RTO #45656 and a CAS summary is emailed for applying to have a High Risk License issued from WHSQ. Please note, there is an additional charge from WHSQ for issuing of licenses.

Please feel free to contact us on 1300 001 487 if your require any assistance selecting a course option.

Day 1 consists of an introduction to the theory of forklift operation and familiarisation with forklift terminology and common safety practices in the workplace. Following the classroom time, students will be introduced to the particulars of the forklift and undergo basic maneuvering in our practical training area and picking up and placing loads at various heights. Students are given a revision test and resource for home study.

Day 2 Is a streamlined revision of the critical theory areas and an opportunity for beginners to discuss any areas of difficulty with the trainer. The practical session provides further time for beginner’s to gain confidence and experienced operators to get familiar with our forklift and simulated workplace tasks.

Day 3 is Assessment day. Students must arrive by the exam time or assessment will not be possible. The day begins with a closed-book theory exam, followed by marking and clarification with the Assessor.

At the conclusion of the theory exams students will each take the practical exam individually, if they have passed all theory components.
