LLN – Language, Literacy and Numeracy Requirements:
To satisfactorily complete this training with us, learners need to be able to understand, read and write basic English and be able to complete basic maths. Calculators are supplied and used during training and assessment.
For example, at the very least, the learner would need to be able to (without assistance) READ and WRITE by following simple instructions like;
Look at the Risk Assessment
Find ‘Set up work area’
Write down what the ‘Potential Hazards’ are.
As an example of the basic maths a learner would need to be able to do to satisfactorily complete this course with us, see the problem below;
The load to move is a pallet of boxes, each box weighs 30 kg and there are 4 boxes on the pallet. The pallet weights 20 kg.
How heavy is the load?
Answer = 140 kg (4 x 30 = 120 kg; 120 + 20 = 140kg)
As an example of understanding numerical values, a learner will need to be able to read a ‘Forklift Load Chart’. In the basic load chart example below, can the forklift pick up a load of 1240kg when the mast is tilted forward by 3O.
|Forklift Load Chart|
|With a Vertical Mast||With Mast Tilted Forward 3O|
|Fork Height||Load Centre||Safe load in KGs||Fork Height||Load Centre||Safe load in KGs|
Answer = No
While understanding numerical values, reading and writing basic English is required, there are some adjustments that can be made if required.
For example, we can offer:
- Training material and assessments in larger print or on coloured paper (learners need to advise preferred colour prior to attending).
- Additional theory and/or practical training.
- Re-assessment opportunities following further training.
- Oral assessment
- Oral assessment may be offered only after a candidate has attempted the written assessment.
- All candidates who complete the theory assessment orally, are required to complete a supplementary assessment to demonstrate they are able to read, understand and write basic English.
- The supplementary assessment is similar to the examples given in LLN above and must be successfully completed by the candidate (on their own).
- An oral assessment may not be able to be conducted on the same day the written assessment is attempted, as it requires a trainer to conduct it one on one with the candidate.
- When a candidate successfully completes an oral assessment, they will then be required to successfully complete the practical assessment to be judged as competent
The course is conducted at our training venue in Rockingham – Unit 1, 8 Day Road, East Rockingham, Western Australia.
