Telescopic Materials Handler

A telescopic handler, commonly known as a telehandler is a versatile type of lifting plant that includes a telescopic boom fitted with a lifting attachment. The typical lifting attachment used is a fork tyne, but other attachments are used depending on the load lifted. Telehandlers can vary in function – from their primary use as a telescopic forklift to lifting suspended loads as a crane or being used as an elevating work platform (EWP) by using a work platform attachment.

Our RIIHAN309E Operate Telescopic Materials Handler unit covers conducting telescopic materials handler operations in the resources and infrastructure industries. It includes planning and preparing; conducting machine pre-operational checks; operating the telescopic materials handler; attaching, securing, lifting, carrying and placing materials; selecting, removing and fitting attachments; carrying out machine operator maintenance; and cleaning up.

At the successful completion of this course the trainee will be awarded a statement of attainment which is Nationally recognised and a wallet sized photo ID card listing the telehandler competency.

All training delivered through Smiths Training Services in partnership with our partner RTO’s is Nationally recognised.

Don’t forget we can travel anywhere within Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and the Pacific region.
