Course Overview 

This course is a legal requirement to operate an Elevating Work Platform (Boom Lift) 11 metres and over. Licence Class (WP).

We provide both theory and practical training to obtain a High-Risk Work Licence. It is a legal requirement in this sector in Australia. All Elevating Work Platform Operators must enrol in a formal training course delivered by recognised trainers and accredited assessors aligned with an R.T.O.

It is a condition of accreditation that assessors in Queensland not conduct an assessment for a high-risk work licence class unless they sight evidence of formal training and supervised practical training.

Are you an experienced operator who doesn’t hold a current Australian EWP Boom Lift Licence? Would you like to have your skills recognised to reduce the time and cost required to obtain your full licence? Recognition of prior learning (RPL) may be the answer to your needs.

RPL may be suitable if you have:

  • An expired Australian EWP Boom Over 11 Metre Licence or held a (Yellow card) Trailer Lift, Scissor lift or Boom Lift Licence Under 11 Metres;

We provide both theory and practical training, generally over 2 days with a final assessment occurring on the third day.

Formal training is usually conducted in a classroom style environment and covers all elements of the unit of competency associated with the licence class. It includes both theory and practical demonstrations of the safe use and operation of the plant.
