High Risk Licences
In accordance with Australian WorkCover legislation, any person performing high risk work must hold a relevant licence – unless they have an active training enrolment with an RTO. High risk work includes:
- working with cranes
- hoist operations – including personnel and materials hoists and elevated work platforms
Only Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) approved by WorkCover can deliver training and assessment for high risk work licences. The training and assessment must be delivered under the supervision of an RTO but practical training can occur in the workplace.
Your high risk licence is valid for five years, and is recognised across all states and territories within Australia.
Sometimes, employers will require additional proof that an operator is competent to perform the tasks and operate machinery in an allocated job role. This can be in the form of Verification of Competency (V.O.C.), which allows you to demonstrate your current level of ability.
Introductory Courses – 100% Online, 100% Free
Your Licence has created a range of free online introductory courses that can be undertaken prior to training to obtain a Ticket/Licence, or refresh your knowledge. The courses will give you an overview of the job role, as well as more detailed information about how to undertake the operations of that role safely and effectively.
