Operators should have completed a full classroom based program before applying for the assessment as a refresher. Those able to show an existing  “OSH” forklift operators certificate, will be permitted to complete the refresher process.Those with only F endorsements will be considered to be new trainees.The process for an “ab initio” training (new trainees) would be to complete the class room or online course and then complete the logbook activity which documents skill development and disciplines required and then a final practical assessment. A plastic card certificate will issued by CSL for each candidate on completion of the both “ab ignitio” and refresher courses.
