Does an over 11m boom lift license cover scissor lift use?
No. These are separate pieces of machinery and a different license will be required for safe and legal use of the two different lifts.
Where does your licensing occur?
We want more people to be licensed, which is why we offer forklift training across Melbourne, either at your facility or our premises.
Is there a size restriction on the license?
No, you will be able to operate forklifts of all sizes if you have successfully obtained your license.
What if I keep my scissor lift under 11m?
The license you obtain is a reflection of the maximum height of the machinery, not the height at which you choose to operate it. If it can reach above 11m – even if you never extend the lift – a High Risk License is needed, as these models are built differently than their smaller counterparts.
