Telescopic Handler (TSH) 'Gold Card' Licence is a nationally recognised, registered ticket issued to operators who have been successfully trained by TSHA Accredited Trainers in the safe use and operation of TSH.
This course is mapped to RIIHAN309F: Conduct Telescopic Materials Handler Operations.
This photo card is the preferred proof of competency demanded by most principle contractors.
TSH's can have various attachments such as forks, crane jib/hook, bucket, basket or work platform.
In NSW, if the TSH you are operating has:
- a jib/hook attachment fitted and a lifting capacity of 3 tonnes and over OR
- is a slewing telehandler (regardless of any attachment fitted or lifting capacity)
you will require a High Risk Work Class CN or C2 Crane Licence.
These Class CN or C2 licences are not provided in this course.
(Such courses are usually 5 day courses and are not available at DAT Training)
