Course Description

Licence to operate an Order Picking Forklift truck – TLILIC2002

This course covers all the requirements for obtaining a national High Risk Work Licence (Class LO) for order picking forklifts.
Successfully completing this course will allow you to operate any forklift which raises a person for the specific purpose of stock picking within Australia. This course does not cover the requirements for counterbalance or reach truck forklifts (with or without a personnel platform/man cage). A High Risk Work Licence (Class LF) is required for this type of forklift.


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

The course fee is $500.00 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.
