Getting Your Qualification
The basic procedure requires you to undertake:

Option 1:
Full three (3) Day Course
* Theory training
* Supervised practical training – logbook hours (supervision will be provided by our licensed operator)
* Assessment (this can only be attempted if the instructor has deemed you competent, a challenge test will be conducted to determine if you are ready for assessment)

Option 2: 

Initial start-up training by NHST – 1 Day (you will then receive a log book to take back to the workplace) – Monday

Supervised hours (under a licensed operator) operating the machine. These hours must be documented into an official Log Book that will be issued by your NHST trainer/instructor. You will have 6 months to log hours and return for the final assessment.

Final assessment – 1 day:  will be conducted once your log book requirements have been finished and you have been deemed competent by your work supervisor.

About Log Books (For Option 2)
After the 1 day initial training, your instructor will issue you with a log book that will include a set number of tasks that you will need to perform under the supervision of a licenced forklift operator. The logbook requirements can be undertaken in your workplace or any place where a elevating work platform is available providing supervision is also available.
On successful completion of the course you will receive a Workplace Health & Safety High Risk National Licence (after your application has been processed by WHSQ) or in the case of a Black Coal mining qualification, a Statement of Attainment that is a nationally recognised for this machine.
