Forklift Course Options

Forklift Training is essential in order to operate a forklift competently, safely, and legally in Australia. Forklift Training can vary slightly depending on the registered training organisation but should cover all relevant/local requirements.

Here at Nationwide Training Perth, we have our Forklift Training LF Course (LF class is for Forklift Truck Licence) and our Order Picker Forklift LO (LO class is for Order Picking Forklift Truck Licence)

We also offer a Verification of Competency as forklift drivers are required to have their forklift operating skills assessed annually.

What is the difference between the LF and LO Forklift Driver’s Licence?


  • Forklift Training LF Course – Forklift Truck Licence

A Forklift truck Licence (also referred to as a Forklift Operators Licence, Forklift Ticket or Certification) covers the essential operation of a forklift.

This would include Safety procedures, pre-start checks, forklift functions and controls, load handling, balance, hazard recognition, shut down procedures and more.

Our Forklift LF Course is compliant with Australian Safety laws.

We pride ourselves on our high-quality training and satisfied clients. Refer to our Google Reviews for client feedback.

We offer 1-day experienced courses, 2-day beginner courses, weekday, and weekend forklift courses. We also offer onsite training, making this process as easy as possible for those wishing to partake.

A forklift truck licence gives its recipient the legal ability to safely handle a forklift as well as ensuring you are confident in doing so.

  • Order Picker Forklift Licence

Those who hold an order picker forklift ticket can operate an order picker forklift which is predominately used for load lifting.

An order picker is a type of forklift used for retrieving or placing pallets/products on elevated storage areas such as racking. Such forklifts are commonly used in warehouses and distribution centers.

Our Order Picker courses include modules such as legislation, load assessment, operating an order picker and more.

We offer 1-day experienced operators courses as well as 2 day beginners courses.
