About the Course
The TLILIC2001 - Licence to operate a forklift truck course is intended for people who want to gain the skills and knowledge required to operate a forklift without supervision.
This is a complete Forklift Training and Licensing Course for beginner and advanced operators alike. They will learn the latest regulation, skills, training and understanding. This is a competency based training course where trainers will keep working with participants for additional periods of time to help all participants achieve the required competency.
Participants must be over 18 years of age, be able to speak and understand English; understand technical concepts and provide adequate 100 points of identification as per SafeWork NSW requirements.
The National Standard requires all high risk work licence training and assessment to be conducted under the supervision of an RTO, with the licence assessment component conducted by a SafeWork NSW accredited assessor.
A successful Formative Assessment must take place before the SafeWork NSW Summative Assessment can be done.
Helpful Study Material
Theory Learning Material
For students wishing to read through the material before attending please see this document https://goo.gl/P9DU1t.
For those students who would like to practice the math component of this course, we have built a small web-app that can be used for students to practice. These questions are similar in nature to kinds of questions you could expect to see during an assessment. So practicing these in advance, particularly if you're a little rusty with your maths, can really help with study.
For practice calculation see our practice forklift calculations page.
