A valuable addition to your skillset

A forklift licence is a WorkSafe requirement for anyone wanting to operate a forklift in industries such as civil & building construction, manufacturing, logistics and warehousing.

MultiSkills Training has licensed thousands of new forklift drivers, providing them with the essential skills they need to operate a forklift, including pre-start checks and applying and conducting risk and hazard assessment strategies. We go further than simply teaching you how to operate the forklift, providing you the skills and knowledge needed to get your job done while protecting yourself, your future co-workers and the company’s assets.

Key to this is understanding the workplace health and safety regulations that forklift drivers must abide by. We ensure that in addition to knowing how to effectively and safely use a forklift, all students attending our forklift training courses learn how to be compliant with national and state/territory workplace regulations.

At MultiSkills Training we are here to support you. Our mission is to empower Victorian students to realise their full potential through a high-quality learning experience. Whether you’re going for your excavator ticket, after a white card or are embarking on a civil construction course, know that you’ll be supported at every step of the way by industry experienced and knowledgeable trainers. We regularly consult with industry bodies to ensure our courses align with current industry needs, helping you get job-ready while you build knowledge skills.
