This forklift training course comprises a written theory assessment (in English), followed by practical driving training and assessment.

Participants need a strong command of the English language to successfully complete the written and practical components of this course.

Note: Due to changes in WorkSafe's assessment process, there is a MANDATORY pre-reading component (of approximately 2 hours) which is required to be completed before sitting this course.  This can be done either online, or via a PDF workbook. Students who have not completed the necessary pre-course study will need to reschedule to an alternate date, at a cost of 50% of the course fee.

Upon successful completion, participants are issued with a temporary paper forklift ticket (valid for 60 days), within which time, participants need to apply to WorkSafe for their nationally recognised photo ID forklift licence and pay an additional fee of $95.

Eligible participants, working in the construction industry can apply for a subsidy of up to 70% of their course fee directly from the Building and Construction Industry Training Fund (BCITF) upon completion of this course.  We can provide you with the application form on the day of your course.
