It is recommended that you study this guide thoroughly prior to your training and assessments. As of 1st January 2015, government legislation requires that all students participating in Registered Training must have a Unique Student Identifier (USI). This number is obtainable via the following website. http://www.usi.gov.au or we will obtain this for you with your permission.

Prior to 1 July 2014, you could apply to have a Forklift licence upgraded to a high risk work licence. As of 1 July 2014 this is option is no longer available and students must re-sit their assessment to upgrade their licence.
Please feel free to confidentially discuss any difficulties you have in these areas with our trainers. We are more than happy to provide the necessary support in any way possible to assist you to successfully complete your training. However, it is a requirement that students must have at least a minimum ability to read and write.

As of 1st November 2016, you are required to go online to www.worksafe.qld.gov.au using the ‘online services’ drop down menu to complete the application process.
