Construction Training Group are a leading provider of Forklift Licence training and assessment courses to both business and individuals. The length of our licensing courses vary, and are tailored to differing knowledge and experience levels of students. Our Forklift Courses can be provided at Construction Training Group facilities in Melbourne or alternatively at your work site. Group bookings are available.

All course offerings are nationally recognised and students will receive a Statement of Attainment on successful completion. Additionally students will need to apply and pay for a WorkSafe licence; this can be done at any Australia Post office or via the Myworksafe portal.

Course participants will receive a pre-course information booklet, which is required to be studied prior to attending the course. Completing the information booklet and attending the course in Melbourne will provide participants with essential knowledge and the skills to complete the forklift test. Assessment will include knowledge, calculation and practical testing. Full details of assessment requirements will be provided on the first day of the course.

To be accepted into the first course, which is two days long, you will need to be able to demonstrate that you have conducted a minimum of 40 hours of forklift operation time under supervision within the last six months. For the beginners’ course, which is three days long, you need only to prove that you are over 18 years of age and have completed some pre-course preparatory study.

During your course, you will be taught using a variety of different methods to stimulate and facilitate learning. And when the time comes for you to be assessed, there will be a range of assessment types all of which will be outlined in detail on the first day of your course. If for whatever reason you are not deemed sufficiently competent by the end of your course, you can simply opt to pay a re-assessment fee and sit a re-assessment within 60 days.
