1 day.

The TSHA Gold Card course will train you to be a safe Telescopic Materials Handler operator with a mix of training room and practical operation activities which will be assessed on the same day.

Why do this Telehandler Gold Card course?

Successful completion of this course will allow you to operate a telehandler with the attachments listed on your Gold Card at workplaces throughout Australia.

Whilst there is no “Licence” required to operate a basic telehandler, employers and principal contractors must be able to show written proof that operators have been trained in the safe use of any telehandler that they operate (WHS Act 2011) and the TSHA Gold Card is widely accepted across the country as valid, sufficient, traceable proof of training.

Please note: There are certain telehandler/attachment configurations that can only be operated by a person that holds the relevant High Risk Work Licence for that type of configuration.

For more information regarding telehandler training & licensing in Australia download the TSH Licensing and Training Requirements Matrix Dec 2018.

How much does it cost?

The cost of this Telehandler Gold Card course includes your enrolment, all course materials, and successful applicants will be issued a plastic photo ID Gold Card*.
