Top Facts About Licence to Operate a forklift Truck in Canberra ACT


Warehouse workers are often required to operate heavy machinery every day. Warehouse workers rely on a forklift truck to help them get their work done. It can be dangerous and very important. The Australian Capital Territory (ACT), requires that anyone operating or controlling a forklift truck on public land must have the proper licence. Otherwise, they could face penalties and fines.


Anyone who works with a forklift has to be aware of the dangers and risks involved. This course is designed to teach you about the risks involved and how to stay safe. This course will also help you obtain your forklift license.


You must first be trained in forklift operation and get your Statement of Attainment from TLILIC0003 before you can begin work. You can do that by taking the College of Warehousing face-to-face course in Mitchell


This training is nationally recognised and includes:


Upon successful completion, you will receive a Statement Of Attainment

– Once all documentation has been verified and you have been deemed competent by an assessor, a Physical Wallet ID Card can also be issued. (See the ‘John Citizen’ sample).

– Training provided by AlertForce RTO code 91826 and a Licenced Hi Risk Work Assessor


This program includes training and assessment for three components of the LF-level forklift class license. They are all based on the TLILIC0003 unit of competency standard or an equivalent. These are the three verifications of competence:


  1. Knowledge or theoretical component (a mixture of critical and non-critical questions)
  2. Calculations component (tested with all required to be answered correctly)
  3. Performance component (practical with the access to the relevant workplace plant or equipment


The Mandated National Assessment Instruments’ (NAI) intent is used to determine the assessment. It is important to remember that this training and assessment will not teach you how to apply for or operate a High Risk Work Licence (HRWL), nor does it provide a Nationally Recognised Statement Of Attainment. This training & assessment is only for VOC purposes. You must attend an in-person training with an RTO or Trainer to be eligible for initial accreditation and high risk licensing for LF classes.
