This accredited unit of competency TLILIC2001A Licence to Operate a Forklift Truck is based on the National Standard for Licensing Persons Performing High Risk Work. This unit specifies the outcomes required for 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. The course is designed for people with little or no experience and is conducted by a Registered Training Organisation [RTO]. Training is delivered in small groups and includes structured theory and practical elements (operators must pass an assessment in both to gain a WorkCover NSW licence to perform high risk work). Our Course is approximately 3-5 days [or 20-40 hours] of training, where practical training is provided on counterbalance (both gas and electric) and reach forklifts. A booklet is included containing the theory information required to be learned. Training videos will be shown and questionnaires set for homework. Training is supervised by an experienced Forktalk instructor at all times. Topics covered include those listed below along with operator responsibilities, safe use and introduction to equipment, PPE, pre start and after start checks and shut down as per manufacturer’s recommendations. Course Content
Please note: WorkCover requires that both a formative and a summative assessment must be passed to gain the licence. Formative assessments are conducted toward the end of the training period and must be passed before sitting the final summative assessment. In order for a summative assessment for licensing to be conducted, operators must have passed the formative assessment, be over 18 years of age and provide 100 points of evidence of identity to the Assessor on the day of assessment as per WorkCover NSW requirements (see following page). Please be aware that on the day of assessment students may be here later than the estimated finishing time. A Statement of Attainment is provided by Forktalk for each participant on successful completion of the summative assessment and the WorkCover accredited Assessor will issue the applicant with two copies of a Notice of Satisfactory Assessment (NSA). The pink copy will be an interim certificate which is valid as a licence for up to sixty (60) days from the date of issue. The applicant must take the other paperwork issued by the Assessor, together with the required fee to an Australia Post Office for processing. WorkCover NSW will mail a credit-card sized photo licence to the applicant in due course.
