Top Facts about Licence to Operate a Forklift Truck in Canberra ACT

When you work in the warehouse, you’re operating heavy machinery on a daily basis. A forklift truck is one of the most important pieces of equipment that warehouse workers use to get their jobs done, and it can be dangerous if it’s not operated correctly. The Australian Capital Territory (ACT) requires any person who operates or controls a forklift truck on public property to have the appropriate licence, otherwise they face fines and other penalties.

There are a large number of risks and dangers for anybody working a forklift, even at a basic level. This course has been designed to give you an understanding of these risks and the system in place to help keep you safe. It also serves as the course that will enable you to obtain your forklift licence.

Before you can start work as a forklift operator, it’s mandatory that you get trained and receive your Statement of Attainment in TLILIC0003. The College of Warehousing course conducted face to face in Mitchell will enable you to do exactly that.

Features of this Nationally Recognised training include:

- Receive a Statement of Attainment on successful completion

- A Physical Wallet ID Card is also issued once all your documentation is verified and you’ve been deemed competent by the assessor (see 'John Citizen' sample)

- Training by our RTO partner, College of Warehousing RTO Code 1623 and a Licenced High Risk Work Assessor.

This training and assessment program addresses three components of the forklift class licence at the LF level (all based upon the unit of competency standard set out in TLILIC0003 or superseded equivalent). The 3 verifications of competency include:

A. Knowledge or theoretical component (tested online with a mixture of critical and non-critical questions)

B. Calculations component (tested online with all required to be answered correctly)

C. Performance component (practical with access to relevant workplace plant and equipment)

The assessment is based upon the intent of the Mandated National Assessment Instruments (NAI’s). However, it is important to note that this training & assessment does not give you the practical skills required to operate or apply for a High Risk Work Licence (HRWL) nor is it Nationally Recognised Statement of Attainment. This is to be used for VOC purposes only. To achieve initial accreditation or high risk licensing for the LF class, you must complete an in-person training session with an RTO and Trainer accredited to deliver TLILIC0003 training.
