Within one week I attended two courses at your premises - Forklift and Dangerous Goods. It was a bit of a brain overload, especially Dangerous Goods, a lot of content that I've never had to use before. I got through it with help from the trainers. If I'm going to do anymore training in my career, I will know where to go.

Our Trainer was on point with everything. Felt comfortable from the moment we walked in there. I watched how he patently helped out one of the other students who struggled a bit with the theoretical side of things. I have to say that he was great in training us.

Frequently Asked Questions

I have an expired forklift licence what should I do?

That depends. If it is a WorkSafe issued High Risk Work Licence (HRWL) you can renew it with WorkSafe within 24 Months of the expiry date. If it is a card issued by an RTO, or an old NOSH or an international ticket then we recommend a forklift course. Please call us to discuss your specific situation.

Already hold a HRWL and want to add an LF?

No worries. When you attend our course bring your HRWL and mention it to your trainer. He will show you how to fill in the application form to add the LF.

Do you provide lunch?

No lunch is provided. We do provide tea, coffee and biscuits and a kitchen if you want to bring your own lunch. There are also some good cafes around us if you wish to buy something on the day and a food van that visits at 9:10am.
