: At a mutually agreed date, Forktalk will conduct licence (summative) assessments of the operators at your site, preferably to be carried out in groups with a maximum of 6 persons in one day.
In order for assessment for a High Risk Work [HRW] licence to be conducted (Stage 2) a suitable forklift truck is required (in good working order and free from operational defects), together with an appropriate area to conduct the assessment. Please note:
WorkCover requires that both a formative
and a summative
assessment must be passed to gain the licence. Trainers will give a copy of completed formative assessments to the operators.
To undertake a summative assessment for licensing, operators must have passed the formative assessment, be over 18 years of age and produce 100 points of Evidence of Identity [EOI - as set by WorkCover] at the time of assessment. Operators must also produce a record of training (the log record overseen by the RTO) as evidence of engagement in a recognised course of training for the type of licence assessment to be undertaken and the formative assessment
which was conducted by the RTO as evidence the operator has achieved the required competencies to have their skills and knowledge assessed. Assessments cannot take place if log records, formative assessments and
original ID are not produced by each operator at the time of the assessment. A Service Call Out fee will be charged in this instance.
The Assessor will have ALL applicants together in a training/conference room to sit the theory exam (they can choose either written or verbal options). Please allow approximately 3 hours for this. The Assessor will then send all operators back to continue their usual work and perform the practical assessment for one person at a time. Please allow approximately 60 minutes per person/assessment for this. Should an operator NOT pass the assessment, they will have to wait 48 hours before they can be reassessed and will have to pay another assessment fee.
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.
Assessment fees are applicable and are GST-free (see Price List)
