COURSE & FEE STRUCTURE

Participants will learn how to operate a forklift truck safely including:

  • Identifying and controlling potential workplace hazards
  • Pre-start and post start operational checks
  • Operating a forklift truck safely
  • Conducting post-operational forklift truck checks

Our HRW Forklift course is delivered under the AHC30116 Certificate III in Agriculture qualification and is primarily targeted at students who already have some basic machinery experience and have the opportunity to operate a forklift under a training plan with their participating employer and HRW licenced workplace supervisor.

The trainee is issued with the ‘HRW log book’ to accrue approximately 40 hours of logged workplace training & experience under licensed workplace supervision.

On completion of the training plan and ‘Learner Workbook’ the participant will then attend a ½ day face to face training session to receive further practical and knowledge training to prepare them for the formal assessment. When the QATC trainer is satisfied that the participant is ready for assessment we will plan to conduct formal assessment.

The participant then attends a ½ day ‘Knowledge Assessment’ session.

On successful completion of this assessment participants will then undertake a ‘Practical Assessment’.

On Satisfactory Completion of both Knowledge and Practical assessment participants will be deemed ‘Competent’ and will be issued with the required Statement of Attainment and ‘Assessment Summery Number’ which can be submitted with the formal ‘online’ HRW licence application.
