Forklift Operator F Endorsement Safety Platform (Cage)

Course Overview
This course can consist of several parts, the F endorsement, the forklift operator’s certificate and associated equipment.

The operators certificate entitles you to use a forklift to move and place loads as required and operate in a workplace along with related attachments or safety platform if also assessed.

The F endorsement entitles you to drive a forklift where there may be public or on public roads.

The operators certificate expires every 3 years, while the F endorsement does not expire and refreshes at the same time as your driver license. 

We also provide courses for forklift attachments and the forklift mounted safety platform if you require any of these units as well, please let us know (additional costs apply) but they can all be delivered at the same time as a full OSH Operator course or refresher.
