Forklift Licence Sydney

Forklift Licences in Sydney

Gone are the days when anyone could take control of a forklift and ride it into the sunset – these days, and thanks in no small part to the necessary health and safety regulations tasked with keeping us safe; only those that are qualified to drive a forklift are permitted to do so.

That means that without the right licensing, your dreams of becoming a career forklift truck driver will never be able to come to fruition.

And for those of you hoping to be able to get by with a smile and a few friends in the business – think again, as anyone found to be in breach of licensing laws can find themselves facing ridiculously hefty fines and penalties.

Obtaining a Forklift Truck License the Right Way

Fortunately for you there are now so many ways to obtain your forklift driver license in the space of just a weekend. We like to call these short courses exactly what they are; training programs of a shorter duration that can help you to fast-track your education.

And as if that wasn’t enough, there’s also the option of receiving Training NSW funding to help to cover the cost of your course – as long as you meet the eligibility requirements.

What about Everyone Else?

If you aren’t quite eligible for the training grant then you’ll be pleased to hear that there are still plenty of options to help you to obtain a license in next to no time. That being said – not everyone will want to speed their licensing up and thankfully there are also courses that can be undertaken at a pace that will be more convenient to you.

Now, we know what you’re thinking… where exactly could you enjoy your very own forklift truck driving course that will help you to enjoy your very own license?

The answer is much more obvious than you might think – in fact you’re looking at it as we speak. Here at AusForkliftTraining, we proudly offer some of the most extensively effective forklift training programs in Sydney; our campus is located in the heart of the region and we’re always happy to take on new students.

What Will You Need to Get Started For Your Forklift Licence?

All that you’ll need is an idea of the type of course that you’d like to undertake, the number of people that will be taking part (yes, we also offer group training) and the time and date that’s most relevant to you.

It really is as simple as that.

If you’re looking for one of the most effective forklift license training centres Sydney has to offer, then you are certainly in the right place. We’ll take care of the technicalities so that you can focus on what’s important; receiving formal acknowledgement of your new truck driving capabilities.

And we’d like to stress this point again – without one of these licenses you will not be permitted to operate a powered industrial truck legally. Considering that you could have your very own license in the space of a week, especially when training with AusForkliftTraining, is there really any reason why you should run the risk of operating without authorisation?

And What Can You Do With Your Forklift License?

Do you have any idea of how huge the construction industry has become? Employers are literally becoming desperate for reliable, qualified forklift drivers and they are often willing to compensate license holders very well.

Not only will you be able to step into a career path offering a substantial range of rewards – you’ll be able to do so with minimal fuss, the backing of a nationally recognised license and the knowledge and expertise that our training campus provides.

Now for the Technical Bit

If you’re keen to enrol yourself (or a group of people) onto our forklift training course, here’s what you need to know. First of all, the course has the code TLILIC2001 – and you can simply quote this when getting in touch with our team.

Next, you’ll need to make sure that you turn up with energy and enthusiasm, as the course will introduce you to maintaining a forklift, using its features, unloading and loading safely, securing any equipment and managing your vehicle in general.

Once you have demonstrated your aptitude, you will receive a license that is based on the National Standard for Licensing Persons Performing High Risk Work – meaning that you will be one of the small percentage of people in Brisbane authorised to operate forklifts.

The course is fully compliant with Part 4.5 of the Model Work Health and Safety (WHS) Regulations and it meets all Commonwealth licensing requirements as well, for your added reassurance.

Who is the Forklift Training Course For?

If you’ve never driven/ ridden a forklift before, this course can help by introducing you to the basics and then expanding on your knowledge and capabilities at a pace that suits you. If you already have an idea of the way in which these vehicles are used and can be operated, then you’ll appreciate the potential to cover the basics and then move on to more challenging tasks.

Finally, you’ll probably want to know how much we charge for our nationally recognised training course. Well to give you an idea, it’s less than $1,000 (an amount that many of our competitors charge) and a little over $500 (so you know the training that you receive will be of the highest quality).

So, how much exactly? $650 AUD to be exact. For just $650, you’ll receive training and assessment, a booking and a dedicated instructor to help you to maximise your chance of being approved for your license.

Just to keep things as transparent as possible, there’s a small licensing fee if you are successful in your assessment – and this can be paid at the end of your course to secure and receive your license.

All that you’ll need to do now is to get in touch with our friendly team at AusForkliftTraining.
