Meet new national guidelines with a telehandler licence

Recent changes to national guidelines mean that telehandlers now require a telehandler licence. Working in conjunction with the Elevated Work Platform Association of Australia (EWPA), YG Lifting Solutions helped pioneer the Telehandler Gold Card Training Program. This industry-standard training course developed by the (EWPA) is as popular as its Yellow Card sister program in the Elevated Work Platform industry. The Telehandler Gold Card Training Program provides training and assessment for both experienced and novice operators.

Isn’t my forklift licence good enough for operating telehandlers?

No! Forklifts and telehandlers have very different operating capabilities, limitations and characteristics. They are also classified under completely different Australian Standards. If you currently operate a telehandler, it is important to obtain a certified telehandler licence to ensure you are compliant with current Australian standards.
