FAQ's

What are the clothing requirements for training?

Casual clothing is sufficient.  Any training that consists of a practical assessment such as the forklift course and all traffic control training requires you to wear long sleeves, long pants and closed in footwear.

Does my Forklift Ticket expire?

Yes it does, check your current card for the expiry date.  Once your forklift licence has expired it must be renewed within 12 months from the expiry date.  A refresher may be done within the 12 month period; thereafter a full renewal is to be completed.

What Does Nationally Recognised mean?

A nationally recognised course is part of the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF).

The AQF includes specific standards for courses at different levels.  The advantages of studying a nationally recognised course are:

  • You will gain a qualification that has been developed in consultation with industry;
  • Your qualification will be recognised by industry across Australia;
  • Your qualification will carry the same level of recognition as courses delivered on-campus;
  • It is generally easier to obtain credit or advanced standing towards further studies;
  • Your course is subject to review and audit by the Australian Skills Quality Authority; and
  • You can be assured that your course meets the standards required to be nationally recognised
