Forklift Operator Certificate Unit Standard Course

OSH Forklift Course

Course Aim

  • Produce operators who can operate forklifts in a safe, efficient and legal manner.
  • Ensure that through having their operators formally trained, the Employer complies with WorkSafe NZ Health and Safety (OSH) requirements for the workplace and NZ Transport Agency requirements.
  • The course is designed for trainees who currently hold an “F” Endorsement or do not require the endorsement.

Worksafe / Unit Standard Operators Course

Our OSH-only course covers:
  • Unit Standard 10851 - Operate a powered industrial lift truck fitted with forks - (forklift).

The course takes one day with approximately 4-5 hours being devoted to theory followed by practical training and assessment.

All trainees receive and work from our "Forklift Operator Training Handbook" - a comprehensive training resource complete with illustrations.

Course numbers are normally restricted to 6 trainees.

Operator Experience 

  • Our one-day course is designed for trainees who have had some prior experience in operating forklifts. If a trainee is an absolute novice and has never operated a forklift then a longer course would likely be necessary. (Additional training may incur additional costs).

Course Venue

Either at TR Driver Training premises or at your site if numbers are sufficient and your venue is suitable.
