Forklift Operator Licence

Forklift Operator Licence

Our Forklift Operator’s Course is designed to meet the needs of the warehousing and Transport Industries. It is a requirement that a Forklift Operator hold an High Risk Work Licence which specifically lists a Forklift truck.

This is a nationally recognised course and students that are successfully found competent will be issued a statement of attainment for the unit of competency TLILIC2001 – Licence to operate a forklift truck.

Course Details

Our comprehensive 2 day course is conducted here at the Sutton Road Driver Training Centre and all necessary equipment is provided. Using our forklift fleet, you will receive professional training in the proper and safe operation of a forklift in full compliance with all current regulatory requirements. At TISC we believe that there is no substitute for actual practical experience and training. So to give you more time in the seat, our course has been designed with a maximum student to forklift ratio of only 2:1.

Non-ACT Residents -If you do not reside in the ACT you MUST contact Construction and Workplace Licensing on (02) 6207 8096 to seek advice regarding eligibility for an ACT High Risk Work Licence prior to booking with us.

We offer two options for gaining the necessary qualification which is a requirement prior to applying for a High Risk Work Licence.


Option one:
Training and Assessment

Completion of a 2 day course at the Sutton Road Driver Training Complex using TISC's forklift training facility. These pre-scheduled courses are limited to 4 places each. Check our calendar for a date that suits you. Can’t find the best date? New courses are scheduled on demand. So call us to enquire if a new course can be scheduled for you.

On completion of the assessment by TISC, you will be provided with the appropriate forms to apply for the licence at WorkSafe ACT.


Option two:
Assessment Only

Do you have an old OHS Certification Card? Assessments can be conducted using TISC equipment at the Sutton Road complex. Give us a call and discuss your circumstances to see if you are eligible for a one off assessment.

Note: Paper licences issued prior to the introduction of the national OHS Certification Card are no longer valid and you must successfully complete the full licence course.
