Licence to Operate a Forklift Truck – TLILIC0003

This unit specifies the skills and knowledge required to operate a forklift truck safely.



Forklift truck means a powered industrial truck equipped with lifting media made up of a mast and an elevating load carriage to which is attached a pair of fork arms or other arms that can be raised 900 mm or more above the ground, but does not include a pedestrian-operated truck or a pallet truck.

This course is designed for individuals with little or no experience who need to attain a forklift licence.

This course is nationally recognised (LF) and is conducted by experienced trainers/assessors who provided supervised experience in driving a conventional forklift.

Training is provided on operating a forklift, to plan the work, conduct routine checks on the forklift, shift loads in a safe manner, and safely shut down and secure equipment after completing operations.

This course is a 3 day course consisting of theory training, practical training and assessments. Participants that successfully complete the course will be issued a Statement of Attainment and a Candidate Assessment Summary (CAS).  They have 60 days to apply to the state WHS Regulator for issue of the licence.

Participants must be at least 18 years of age to undertake this course.

Where students are not able to attend the full 3 day training course and they have access to a forklift in their workplace, they may be able to attend the formal training and logbook set up on one day and make arrangements for assessments at a later date.

Once set up on the logbook students are able to operate a forklift under the supervision of an appropriately licensed operator. Please talk to an AIT representative about this option for training.
