RIHAN309E – Conduct telescopic materials handler operations

December 7, 2018 @ 7:30 am - 3:00 pm


This course is for anyone wanting to learn how to operate a Telehandler (also known as a Manitou).

This one day course provides training and assessment in operating a Telehandler that is not fitted with a boom or jib and hook block and is not over 3 tonne capacity or fitted with a personnel box.  A high risk work licence is required for a CN crane and/or EWP if these attachments are used.

Course duration is generally 1 day.  Additional training will be provided at no cost to participants if it is required.

The course consists of theory and practical training and assessments and covers:

  • Load calculation
  • Choosing and using the right attachments
  • Pre and post operational checks
  • Operating the machine safely
  • Carrying and placing loads
  • Checking and reporting faults

Telehandlers are a versatile machine that are commonly used on a variety of construction sites as they can lift heavy loads and have the reach to place the loads in places not easily accessible by a forklift.  There are a number of sites around NQ where the Telehandler competency is useful, for example, solar farms and medium to large construction sites.

Course fee is $500 per participant.

CSQ funding $540 for eligible participants
