Forklift Verification of Competency - VOC
Forklift VOC Training Summary
The forklift Verification of Competency (VOC) course is aimed at participants who currently hold a forklift licence (high risk work licence of class LF or LO).
The course allows participants to prove to employers they are still competent in the safe operation of a forklift and that they have knowledge of current industry regulations.
Our fee is $220 per person for non-statement of attainment outcomes, or $300 per person for statement of attainment outcomes.
Who Is This Course For?
This course is for anyone who currently holds a high risk forklift licence and wants to be verified as competent in the safe operation of a forklift. It is also for employers who wish to verify & ensure that their staff are suitably competent in the safe operation of a forklift.
Australian and offshore health and safety legislation requires employers to ensure employees are competent in equipment operation and the tasks to be performed. Therefore, the VOC assessment is ideal for contractual arrangements and pre-employment competency checks.
The course allows students to prove to employers they are still competent and have knowledge of current industry regulations. The VOC allows workers to increase their chances of employment and cover any legal requirements the work may involve.

About the Course
This forklift VOC course is based on a national standard for forklift operators, and consists of both a knowledge assessment, as well as a practical observation assessment.
The theory assessment task requires you to complete a written or verbal response knowledge assessment involving 67 short response questions. The questions within this assessment relate directly to the safe operation of a forklift, and are fundamental to your ability to perform workplace tasks correctly. The assessment is conducted over a two hour period in a classroom setting directly supervised by the assessor. Your assessor will re-train you on any gaps in your knowledge that become apparent.
The practical assessment task requires you to demonstrate your skill and knowledge in operating a forklift truck including pre start-up procedures involving hazard identification and prevention, pre and post operational checks, shifting loads of various weights and heights and shutting down the forklift truck. The assessment is conducted in a designated area which simulates a realistic workplace. The assessment is directly supervised by the assessor, and they will re-train you on any gaps in your knowledge/skills.
Participants must hold a current high risk forklift licence. They must have this on their person during the practical assessment.
