If a verbal assessment is required there will be an additional cost of $150 per person.

Due to limited number of places available on each course, tentative (unpaid) bookings do not secure your place in the course.
To secure your place in a course payment of the course fees (or receipt of a company purchase order) and collection of the pre-course material is required.

Course Cancellations:

If notification of cancellation is not received, or received less than two (2) days before the course start, students will incur a cancellation charge of $100.
This charge can be waived for medical or compassionate conditions if AWT is informed prior to the course with evidence and the student rebooks to the next available course.

SafeWork SA requirements:
Once successfully completing the training students have 60 days to apply for their High Risk Work LF licence.
When submitting the licensing paperwork to Services SA, students are required to show an Australian photo ID.

All participants successfully completing the written and operational assessment will receive a “Notice of Satisfactory Assessment”.
Successful participants will also receive a Tax Invoice which must be used to apply for the “Licence to Perform High Risk Work.”
Participants will then need to take their Forklift Tax Invoice and 100 points of ID (including an Australian Photo ID) to Services SA or a Post Office to pay their licence fees and have their photo taken to obtain their High Risk Forklift Licence.
The High Risk Forklift Licence is posted out to each individual by Safework SA.
