This  accredited unit of competency TLILIC2002A Licence to Operate an Order Picking Forklift Truck is based on the National Standard for Licensing Persons Performing High Risk Work. This unit specifies the outcomes required to operate a powered industrial truck of a type where the operator’s control arrangement is incorporated with the load carriage/lifting media, and elevates with it, for licensing purposes.

The course is designed for people with some operator knowledge and experience and is conducted by a Registered Training Organisation [RTO] at our site in Campbelltown. 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 3 days of training, where practical training is provided on the order picking forklift. A booklet is included containing the theory information required to be learned together with a copy of all the questions set by WorkCover for the assessment. A formative assessment is conducted on completion of training. This course is supervised by an experienced Forktalk instructor at all times.

Course Content

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:
  • Compliance with WHS licensing legislation.
  • Effectively communicate and work safely with others in the work area.
  • Identify hazards associated with the operation of the order picking forklift truck and put in place effective hazard controls for identified hazards.
  • Effectively conduct pre-start and post start operational checks and shut down checks of the order picking forklift truck.
  • Effectively operate the order picking forklift, pick and place loads safely at various heights, including driving and manoeuvring and placing loads in a safe manner.
  • Assessment of the safe application of knowledge and skills to workplace tasks.
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. A Statement of Attainment is provided by Forktalk for each participant on successful completion of the formative 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.
