New live training site opens on the Gold Coast

Forklift Training Gold Coast

Elevated Training provides a wide range of vocational training for forklift tickets, EWP licences and more – and we pride ourselves in doing so with a personalised and practical approach.

Due to high demand and growth, we have a new live training site in the heart of the Gold Coast, in addition to our already popular site in Brisbane.

The new site in Burleigh Heads grows our capacity to provide practical training and logbook hours operating machinery in a more accessible location for students living south of Brisbane.

We have also added two new machines to the training site: an Elevated Work Platform (EWP) over 11 metres, and a high reach forklift.

Our EWP+11m course teaches you the skills and knowledge required to prepare to operate the platform, conduct work from the platform as well as carry out operator maintenance.

And getting your forklift ticket and relevant experience has never been easier with our new and existing equipment to give you well-rounded experience with a range of forklift trucks.

If you are looking to get work in a warehouse, transport or logistics role, most jobs will require a ticket and logged hours using the appropriate machinery.

We provide straightforward classroom and worksite training so you can get the all skills you need in the one place and come out with full licencing and accreditation.

Our practical sessions on the live site in Burleigh will help you become familiar with real-life situations in order to gain the competencies and best preparation possible for safe operation.

All courses are tailored to suit various roles and industries, and we also offer weekend training to minimise disruption to your schedule.

By choosing Elevated Training, you gain hands-on experience operating various machinery and log training hours using our equipment and become fully prepared for your desired job.

Find us at 80 Nestor Drive, Meadowbrook in Brisbane or at 44 Hutchinson Street, Burleigh Heads on the Gold Coast.

Courses start from $250, so give us a call or book online for 10% off your course fee.

Forklift licence renewals

Forklift Licence Renewal

There was a time where forklift licences were a lifetime ticket – you do the training and logbook hours when starting out and that was it – you were all set for the rest of your working life.

However, in recent years the rules have changed.

Workplace Health and Safety (WHS) now require forklift tickets to be renewed every five years.

Operating machinery in the workplace without a ticket means you are failing to comply with regulations and could see you facing a hefty fine of up to $20,000.

But keep in mind; these regulations have been put into place to ensure the utmost safety for you and your co-workers.

Refresher training ensures that your skills and knowledge is sound and up to date, and that you are still capable to use the machinery without causing any risk to the people on your worksite.

If you have an LO or LF forklift ticket that is about to expire, or has recently expired, you don’t have to start from scratch with a full forklift training course to regain your licence.

In fact, with Elevated Training are able to use your previous experience operating the machinery to fast track your training so you can get fully accredited and back onsite in no time.

New workers obtaining LF or LO tickets ordinarily participate in a 3-day training course.

However, with your recognised prior learning (RPL) at play, we can run you through all of the necessary licensing requirements in a brief four-hour session.

The half-day course helps to remind you of the fundamental skills and experience you already have and fast-tracks your training so you can avoid disrupting your routine work.

Elevated Training has experienced trainers and assessors that specialise in a wide range of vocational training and log book needs for forklift tickets, EWP licences and more.
