Order Picking Forklift Truck Course

Supplier: Forktalk

This ASQA accredited unit of competency TLILIC2002A license to operate an order picking forklift truck is based on the National Standard for Licensing Persons Performing High Risk Work.


This unit specifies the outcomes required to operate a powered industrial truck of a type where the operator’s control arrangement is incorporated with the load carriage/lifting media, and elevates with it, for licensing purposes.

The course is designed for people with some operator knowledge and experience and is conducted by a Registered Training Organisation [RTO] at our site in Campbelltown. Training is delivered in small groups and includes structured theory and practical elements (operators must pass an assessment in both to gain a WorkCover NSW licence to perform high risk work). Our course is approximately 2 days [or 14 hours] of training, where both theory and practical training is provided on the order picking forklift PLUS assessment day(s).   A booklet is issued containing the theory information  required to be learned for the assessment. A formative assessment is conducted on completion of training.  The summative assessment for the licence will be done on a separate day. This course is supervised by an experienced Forktalk instructor at all times.

Please note: WorkCover requires that both a formative and a summative assessment must be passed to gain the licence.  Formative assessments are conducted toward the end of the training period and must be passed before sitting the final summative assessment. A Statement of Attainment is provided by Forktalk for each participant on successful completion of the summative assessment.

In order for a summative assessment for licensing to be conducted, operators must have passed the formative assessment, be over 18 years of age and provide 100 points of evidence of identity to the Assessor on the day of assessment as per WorkCover NSW requirements (see following page).  Please be aware that on the day of assessment students may be here later than the estimated finishing time.

On successful completion of this summative assessment the WorkCover accredited Assessor will issue the applicant with two copies of a Notice of Satisfactory Assessment (NSA). The pink copy is an interim certificate which is valid as a licence for sixty (60) days from the date of issue. The applicant must take the other paperwork issued by the Assessor, together with the required fee to an Australia Post Office for processing. WorkCover NSW will mail a credit-card sized photo licence to the applicant in due course.
