Course Structure and Duration
If an operator has not done any forklift training and/or is not an authorised forklift operator with current forklift operator (OSH) certification – then he/she needs to do a full “walk behind” course which includes workplace safety theory – i.e.: similar to a forklift course but adapted for “walk behinds” – plus a practical assessment.
Duration: Approximately ¾ day (maximum 10 trainees).
If an operator is an authorised forklift operator with current forklift operator (OSH) certification and/or holds Unit Standard 10851 then they only need to receive instruction on “walk behinds” and complete a practical training/assessment.
Duration: Approximately 3 to 4 hours (maximum 10 trainees).
