Our Fork Lift Licence Training Course is designed for participants who are required to have a licence to operate a fork lift truck for employment or part of their own business operations
Course Code: SAH039
Forklift trucks are used to shift loads in many workplaces including shops, warehouses, wineries, farms and many other workplace sites. This course provides basic training in the safe operation of a forklift truck and prepares participants to undertake the Worksafe Forklift Truck Licence assessment. The course is suitable for those with no or limited previous experience as well as more experienced operators who require the licence.
Each student enrolled in nationally recognised training will need a Unique Student Identifier (USI) to access all academic transcripts and qualifications. Melbourne Polytechnic cannot issue you with a Statement of Results, Statement of Attainment or qualification unless you provide your personal USI.
