Who we are
We provide nationally recognised training courses and assessment for forklift and order picker licences & earthmoving machinery tickets.
The Operator School has been servicing the industry since 1999. With clients ranging from individual students to large national companies, we have the skills and knowledge required to help you qualify for your earthmoving machinery (skid steer, excavator, etc.) operator licences (now known as tickets or competency cards, following de-regulation), as well as forklift and order picker licences.
We are a Government approved Registered Training Organisation (RTO No. 31513) and we employ a number of experienced trainers and assessors. Because we do not use contractors, we are able to exercise complete quality control throughout our training and assessment delivery.
The Operator School has also been selected by Construction Skills Queensland (CSQ) as a preferred supplier of training and assessment for the excavator, skid steer loader (bobcat), front end loader, roller and backhoe. That means CSQ funding is available for all machinery courses that we provide.
While we may not be the cheapest supplier, we endeavour to provide the best service and outcomes possible in our courses. We are confident that our product provides industry relative training at a value for money price.
If you’re based in Brisbane or elsewhere in south-east Queensland, our training facility for order picker, forklift, and earthmoving machinery is conveniently located in Arundel on the Gold Coast.
