Operate a Telehandler Training

NZQA 23637 - Operate a telehandler - Level 3, 20 Credits

Key Learning Objectives:

The trainees will undergo formal in-class training in association with unit standard 23637 prior to being assessed. This will be followed by the practical aspects of operating a Telehandler.

Theory and practical lessons will include the following:

  • Hazard controls are described in accordance with company requirements
  • Telehandler and attachments are checked and prepared before use
  • Operate a telehandler; and
  • Carry out post-operational procedures
  • Describe the operation of telehandlers
  • Prepare for telehandler operations

PRE-REQUISITE:

To hold a current driver license appropriate to the weight range of the Telehandler Gross Vehicle Mass (GVM) driven, including a current license endorsement for on-road use (i.e. an F or W Endorsement will be required dependent on the attachments used on the Telehandler).

  • W Endorsement required if attachments are Hooks, Buckets, Jibs
  • F Endorsement required if attachments are Forks, Man-cages

Refresher Training

The criteria for refresher courses remains the same as previously, the learner must already hold the Unit Standards they are refreshing.

Refresher training is not a legal requirement; however, it is strongly recommended to ensure compliance with the Health & Safety Legislation and its industry "good practice" guidelines.

It is generally seen as good work practice that trainees refresh these unit standards every 3 years.  Duration of this course is 4 hours and will cover the unit Standards and a practical exercise to reinforce the trainee's knowledge on Operating a Telehandler correctly.  (The practical exercise can be replaced with our Workplace verifier process - This process is simple; a workplace verifier confirms the competency of the learner performing the tasks being refreshed by completing our Attestation form).
