About this Course

Course Description:

A Verification of Competency (VOC) is an assessment of a persons knowledge and skills. The process assists employers with meeting their Workplace Health & Safety (WH&S) obligations to deem staff competent to perform a task or operate plant and/or equipment.

VOC requirements are site and/or company specific. If a company you work for, or a work-site you are visiting, requests a current VOC for a specific piece of plant or to undertake a particular task, you will need to comply with the request in order to undertake the work.

VOC’s are undertaken on persons who already hold a current ticket, licence or unit of competency, to verify that they are still competent to that standard. Persons undertaking a VOC must provide evidence of their existing competency. The outcome of the VOC process is a Statement which references the activities or tasks verified, and/or the plant and equipment verified on. It does not satisfy the requirements for the issuance of a nationally accredited unit of competency.


VOCs can be conducted nationally onsite or at our Kallibr Training (RTO 32365) locations in Sydney and Brisbane.

Onsite VOCs can be organised and conducted onsite if the following requirements are met:

  • A room with access to power, table/s and chairs.
  • Clear flat operating area for practical assessment
  • Required machine and equipment type in safe/serviceable working order in accordance with manufacturers specifications

Further Information

If I get to a site and they ask me for a Verification of Competency, am I required to have one?

Verification of Competency (VOC) requirements are site and/or company specific. If a work-site you would like to conduct work at, requests you to provide a current VOC for a specific piece of plant or to undertake a particular task, you are required to comply.

How long does a Verification of Competency take?

The time required (and therefore the cost applicable) to undertake a VOC will depend on the plant or activity needing to be verified. As a guide for example, VOC’s for Dogging take approximately 1-2 hours per person.

Can Verification of Competency’s be undertaken on my site?

Absolutely, provided the site can provide access to suitable compliant plant and equipment required to undertake the VOC, we are able to quote for Australia wide delivery.

Can you undertake Verification of Competency’s at your premises?

No problem. We can undertake most VOC’s for High-Risk Work plant and activities as well as earthmoving and other competencies at our QLD, NSW & VIC campuses.

Will I get any training before undertaking a Verification of Competency?

VOCs are undertaken to verify competency and are therefore conducted without any training or preparation as it is considered current licenced/ticketed/competent employees and contractors, have the required knowledge and skills to complete the assessment. Any person deemed not yet competent will be offered the opportunity to undertake refresher training, and undertake another VOC assessment (which may attract an additional cost).
