Frequently Asked Questions

Q: I live in a different State. Can I travel to Victoria to do my course?
A:
Yes. You can be issued with a VIC HRW licence and reside in another state if there are reasonable grounds. If you believe this applies to you, please contact WorkSafe’s Licensing Branch on 1300 852 562 or licensing@worksafe.vic.gov.au prior to enrolment in this course. Applications are considered on a case by case basis. Also note, when applying for your High Risk Work Licence, you will have to do so at a Victorian Post Office.

Q: What is the assessment process?
A:
Our Victorian Forklift course is made up of one day of training and one day of assessment. Participants will be required to successfully complete a series of WorkSafe Victoria mandated assessment items. On day two you will undergo written knowledge and calculations assessment and (if eligible) you will undergo a practical skills assessment. All assessments will be “closed book” and conducted by a WorkSafe Vic Accredited Assessor (who is independent of Pinnacle Safety and Training). This mandated assessment is required to be administered by all RTOs offering this High Risk training.

Q: I failed one or more of the assessments. What does this mean for me? Can I come back and re-sit them?
A: Not everyone passes the first go – don’t be embarrassed if this happens. Even knowledgeable people may struggle to answer the technically specific exam, as the answers need to be provided precisely in accordance with WorkSafe Victoria standards. If this occurs, you may study the material in your own time, and return within 60 days to re-sit the assessment, at no charge.

Q: I attended part of the training, and I now no longer wish to proceed with any more training or assessment. Can I have a refund?
A: No. The course fee you paid relates to the formal training you have already received. If you choose not to proceed with this for any reason, no refund or partial-refund will be provided. This is in accordance with our standard Terms and Conditions you accept upon enrolment.

Course Inclusions

  • Training conducted by an experienced high risk work licence operator with strong knowledge of relevant legislation and Australian Standards
  • Practical hands-on training

To successfully complete this certification, participants must:

  • Be ready and willing to study, memorise and complete review questions at night in order to have the best chance of successfully completing the written assessment.

Language, Literacy and Numeracy (LLN)

  • If English is your second language, you must advise us at time of booking. Contact our Sales and Service Team on 1300 990 810 to determine your eligibility to undertake this training. We will assist you in any way we can, but due to the demands of the assessment process, do not guarantee that every applicant will possess the level of LLN required for the assessment.
  • You will require at least a Year 10 level of numeracy, literacy and communication skills. If you have any doubts, please let us know so we can assist you.

Kevin was an outstanding trainer. I wish other training facilitators were this professional and supportive. He conducted the class in a way that enabled us to absorb a lot of info in a short amount of time. It was a serious course and if you consider safety a priority, then I highly recommend Pinnacle. Thanks.

Brad is a fantastic trainer. I have never driven a forklift before but with his guidance everything seemed easy. I was able to do nearly every task in the very few hours of my training. This shows the level of experience Brad has to fully engage my interest. He is the guy…thanks Brad!

Michael did an excellent job facilitating the course. His excellent content knowledge and practical advice based on his experience contributed to making the course an exceptionally valuable experience.
