If you have existing log books or other training records, bring them along, plus any statements of attainment or current high risk work licences that are relevant to your chosen course.

Yes – many of our core training courses are available online using a virtual classroom setup. Provided you have access to the internet and ideally video/camera capability, you can access our online training platform for the theory components. Our trainers are available for one-on-one Zoom meetings so that you can complete your competency assessment. For the practical component of your course, you can book an assessment with a trainer at our site or yours, or opt for a remote practical assessment at your workplace which should be provided with video evidence and undertaken under the supervision of a competent person.

You receive the certificate on the day of training. For corporate accounts or group bookings, this is emailed to the training coordinator.

As an accredited RTO, much of the training we conduct is eligible for course funding and subsidies. In QLD, Construction Skills Queensland (CSQ) provides short course funding and upskilling support to apprentices. The Queensland Government also provides subsidised traineeships through the Skills Assure program. Plus, the BERT fund is a joint Union and Employer initiative which provides members of the Building Employees Redundancy Trust (BERT) with funding and assistance to improve their skills. Check the individual course information pages for further details.

No, we don’t cancel courses due to low attendance unless there is a specific number of attendees required by the state WHS regulator.

The individual course information pages will specify whether you need any prior training. Generally, where courses have a basic, intermediate and advanced level, you need to work through these courses starting from the basic level. Rigging courses require you to have completed a dogging course first.

Safe Work Australia also has some basic prerequisites for students- in most cases you need to be over 18 years of age, be able to provide 100 points of identification, and can speak and understand English at a level that is appropriate for the course.

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 assessment.

VOCs are undertaken to verify your existing level of competency and are therefore conducted without any training or preparation. It is considered that current licenced, ticketed or 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).

You’ll need to check with your accountant but often workplace training can be claimed as a tax deduction.

Although not mandatory, many worksites require any person working from an EWP (elevating work platform) to have undergone relevant height safety training.

State WHS regulators require some form of proof that the operator has been trained in the safe use of an elevating work platform (EWP). Verbal instruction is not an effective method of training as it lacks proof of training evidence. The EWPA Yellow Card Trained Operator Licence provides adequate evidence of training and helps employers and workers comply with their safety obligations.

The EWPA suggests that safety harnesses are not required on scissor lifts unless a hazard assessment shows there is a risk of falling. EWP manufacturers are not required to fit certified harness attachment points on scissor lifts, as per the Australian Standard AS/NZS1418.10. This is a clear indication that provided the EWP is used and maintained as per the manufacturer’s recommendations, there is no requirement for a harness to be worn. The platform guard and handrails are the primary sources of fall protection for operators.

A dogger or dogman is required when selecting and inspecting lifting equipment; determining sling WLL when angle factors are applied; determining suitable lifting points and slinging & directing a load when it is out of the crane operator’s view.

If the vehicle loading crane, eg: a Hiab or Palfinger, has a lifting capacity under 10 metre tonnes, duty of care training is sufficient. If the lifting capacity is equal to or more than 10 metre tonnes, a High Risk Work licence class CV is required. Metre Tonnes can be calculated by multiplying the lifting capacity with the specified reach. ie: The VLC can lift 1.3 tonnes at a distance of 7 metres: 1.3t x 7m = 9.1 metre tonnes.
