On January 1 2017, the RS Licence qualification will be necessary to operate any Reach Stacker over 3 tonne.

An operator will only be legally permitted to operate when holding the RS qualification, or if they are in training specifically for the RS.

To be in training a person must be enrolled with a Registered Training Organisation in the qualification (TLILIC3019 – Licence to Operate a Reach Stacker), operating under Logbook conditions and accruing hours of supervised operation in preparation for assessment.

The process can be broken down into three steps:

  • Step 1 – Formal training and issue logbook – 1 day
  • Step 2 – Continue operating and accruing Logbook hours
  • Step 3 – Assessment – 1 day


  1. Formal training takes place on-client-site and is a combination of theory activities in the classroom and practical activities in the yard operating the Reach Stacker. Once this Formal Training is completed, we will issue a Logbook and training plan specific to each trainee. A Logbook can only be issued by ourselves after delivery of Formal Training.
  2. Operating hours and activities are to be recorded in the Logbook and supervision is required during this period.  It is the responsibility of the employer to ensure appropriate supervision during this time, as with any other work activity.
  3. When sufficient hours are accrued and the trainee feels ready, the assessment can be conducted.  This will take 1 day for the group of up to 6 operators and is a combination of theory and practical assessment against the national assessment instrument.  This assessment can take place up to six months from the logbook date of issue.


Those who successfully complete will be able to lodge the licence application with the Department of Workplace Health and Safety Qld at a cost of approximately $87.  The Licence will be added to any other High Risk Work Licences the individual holds, and will be valid for 5 years.

A person who may not successfully complete the assessment can continue to operate under the logbook for a period while continuing the study and/or accrue more experience.  Re-assessment is at additional cost and is variable depending on the needs of the student.  These are managed on a case by case basis.
