- To do your 100 tonne or open crane licence, we require that you already hold a crane licence and crane operation experience. We require proof of experience or training. To go from having no crane licence to doing your open crane licence is akin to going from not having a car drivers licence to doing your Road Train Truck Licence. You may have a natural flare for it but neither Workplace Health and Safety or our Trainers and Assessors will be comfortable with that or will accept that. The only exceptions will be if you have a previous licence and experience either locally or overseas. If you are determined that you want either a C1 or CO Licence, we will require you to do it in stages. Complete your C2 or C6 licence first, starting your C1 or CO course at the same time, then log up time on as broad a range of cranes as possible before returning to complete your licence.
- Evidence of identity (Photo).
- Prefer two forms of I.D. i.e. passport or Australian drivers licence, birth certificate.
- 100 points required for lodgement of assessment.
- Signed photo ID.
- Adequate English language numeracy and literacy skills. If not, please contact us. We can help.
- Steel cap boots. You will be required to dog the cranes also. High visibility shirt, hard hat, safety glasses.
- We recommend long sleeve shirts, long trousers and UV sunscreen. Safety sunglasses may be acceptable.
- Leather gloves recommended, whistle
- Reasonable health fit for this work.
- You must advise us of any health issues that may place you or others at risk. This will not preclude your enrolment, but will allow us to determine appropriate adjustments to your training and physical activities.
Bookings for your Advanced Scaffolding Course can be made either over the phone or by email.
Some of the information we will require are:
- Your legal name as shown on your drivers licence (First and last name).
- Date of Birth
If you have no experience but are prepared to turn up to our yard for more training we will be happy to provide it until you are comfortable.
Here are two examples:
- Basic Scaffold Course: Adam started his course with us but was not confident with his practical skills during the first week of training, so he came back over the next two weeks on relevant days to gain more experience. He “smashed” his practical assessment on the third week and gained tube and coupler experience along the way.
- Crane up to 60 Tonnes (C6) Course: Paul wanted to become a crane operator. He continued to come into our yard on his days off for weeks before and after he completed his course. That was 12 months ago. Paul has been a full time crane operator for 5 months now.
You don’t have to complete your course in one week. Our policy is to train you until your are competent and confident.
