Nationally Recognised Forklift Course

TLILIC2001 - Licence to operate a forklift truck

Central Australian Driving School offers Nationally Recognised Forklift training and licensing.

This unit covers the outcomes required for the operation of a powered industrial truck (forklift) equipped with a mast and an elevated load carriage with fork arms or other attachment for licensing purposes.

This course covers a large practical component regarding the lifting and relocation of loads using a conventional forklift. Participants will learn to interpret and clarify work requirements, access and apply safety information and procedures throughout operations, fit and remove attachments in accordance to manufacturer's specifications and coordinate activities to ensure a safe workplace.
