Here at Volt Edge, our Forklifting course teaches students the skills and knowledge required to operate a forklift truck safely in accordance with all relevant legislative requirements.
Our course is designed to give you the skills and knowledge required to operate a forklift truck safely in accordance with all relevant legislative requirements.
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 attachments that can be raised 900 mm or more above the ground, but does not include a pedestrian-operated truck or a pallet truck.
Our course is completed through a mix of online theory and assessment, face to face practical training, and logbook hours. Student attendance will vary depending on experience.
Inexperienced students will attend 2 full days (log book on a case by case basis)
(Log Book is required by students who have no experience driving a forklift and are deemed not yet competent in this component during the face to face practical training.)
Experienced students will attend day 1 of training and will not be required to attend day 2 if they are deemed competent in the practical component of driving a forklift. This is assessed by a challenge test. (Log book completion is on a case by case basis).
