Course Description

TLILIC2001 – Licence to operate a Forklift truck

This course covers all the requirements for obtaining a national High Risk Work Licence (Class LF) for forklifts.
Successfully completing this course will allow you to operate any forklift, including counterbalance, reach trucks and high reach forklifts within Australia.

Total duration is 3 days. Training is over two full days and SafeWork NSW assessment is conducted on the third day.

Fees and Charges

The course fee is $495.00 per person (GST exempt). This fee includes the SafeWork NSW assessment fee and all course materials. This includes one (1) SafeWork NSW assessment.
An additional fee of $150 will be charged if any extra SafeWork NSW assessments are required.
