The 2 Day forklift course (licence to operate a forklift truck) is ideal for those students who have had no prior experience with operating a Forklift and require a more comprehensive training solution.
This forklift licence course runs over 2 full days of training, to give students adequate time to absorb the training material and practice their new skills. This Nationally Recognised training consists of both theory and practical hands-on learning, so students can feel completely confident taking their knowledge back into the workplace.
At the end of the 2 days of training, students will have all the necessary skills to safely and confidently check, maintain and use this machine in accordance with all Australian Standards and Regulation.
Any person performing work with a forklift truck in Melbourne is required to hold a forklift truck high risk work (HRW) licence.
