There are two components to our Forklift course, the first is the 'F' Forklift Licence Endorsement and the second is the OSH Code of Practice for Forklift Operators, they are both completed in our one day course.
Forklift Endorsement - The 'F' endorsement means that you can drive a Forklift on a legal road*. It is an endorsement that is placed on your licence and you must have a Full Class 1 (car) Licence in order to gain the 'F' endorsement.
OSH Certificate - The OSH Certificate is required in order to operate a Forklift. This can be gained without a driver licence but without the 'F' endorsement applied againt their licence the certificate holder can only operate a Forklift within an enclosed yard or within a factory. This certificate must be renewed every three years (renewal price is discounted.) The OSH Certificate can be done without the 'F' endorsement but will still incur the full course price.
The course cost, including both the 'F' endorsement and the OSH Certificate, is $350.00 including gst.
If you are already a competent Forklift operator and have previously held your OSH Certificate but need to renew it at it's three year expiry date the renewal course fee is $250.00 including gst (Note: You attend the same one day course.) If you want to renew your OSH Certificate but got it without the 'F' endorsement and now want to gain your 'F' endorsement the full course and fee applies.
* a 'legal road' is any place the public can reasonably access, whether they have a right to be there or not. Two examples of a legal road include an open yard (whether inside or outside a building) and a supermarket car park. A legal road does not include closed warehouses or yards with locked gates, as the public can't reasonably access those places. If you're not sure if the area you will be operating a forklift is a legal road, please ask your trainer or the office team.
