Our forklift course is for those who require a High Risk Work Licence forklift (LF class) issued from WorkSafe WA. This course includes pre-study that is completed online before you attend our training venue. Once you have completed the online pre-study, you then attend our training venue in Rockingham for a full day. When you attend, additional information will be covered before you complete a written and calculations assessment, participate in practical training and finally undertake a practical assessment.
The online study can be completed on any device. It is comprised of 2 sections to read through carefully, with review questions to test your knowledge along the way – so we suggest you take notes as you go. To read through the sections and complete all the review questions takes an average of 3 hours 45 minutes to complete. We then require that you go back through each section to study the content two more times. Re-reading the information takes an average of 1 hour 20 minutes each time. We recommend that you complete the prescribed re-reading portion of the study over 2 days to help you absorb the information over a period of time.
There is no need to print any part of the online study as you will be welcome to collect a copy of the learner guide when you attend our training venue. If you would like a copy of the learner guide prior to attending the training venue you will be welcome to collect a copy at the office, or if there is sufficient time we can post a copy on request.
If you have experience in forklift operations, you may find the information is familiar and be able to complete the study in less time to feel confident in your knowledge. However, please be aware that the assessment is closed book (that is, you cannot look at any reference material during the assessment), so it is vital you spend adequate time to learn the content of the pre-study.
If you have language or learning difficulties you may choose to ask a family member or friend to be a ‘study buddy’, and help you complete the online study and learn the information. However, please note that there is a level of reading, writing and numeracy required to complete this course with us, please see the LLN information below for what this means.
There is no formal pre-requisite unit of competency required, however candidates MUST;
Once you enroll (book into the course), we will send you a log-in for the online pre-study component.
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:
The course is conducted at our training venue in Rockingham – Unit 1, 8 Day Road, East Rockingham, Western Australia.
