Course Overview

 

This course, over 5 days, is designed to ensure that participants have the skills and knowledge required to perform slinging techniques, including the selection and inspection of lifting gear and/or the directing of the crane operator in the movement of the load when the load is out of view of the crane/ operator for licensing purposes.

Participants will work with the Trainers and Assessors to develop their skills and knowledge, in small groups, ensuring maximum time with trainers. We operate up to three dogging stations at one time for less waiting around time and more hands-on experience. We also give participants the opportunity to operate the mobile cranes to gain an understanding from an operator's point of view as they communicate with their dogman when conducting a lift.

This course option is suitable for participants without access to a workplace to gain experience, or workplaces who don’t have the resources to supervise staff while gaining nominal hours. If at any time during these 5 days the assessor recognises the need for the participant to complete gap training, participants will be given their logbook to gain nominal hours in the workplace prior to attending an assessment.

Watch some examples of our Dogging Course on our YouTube Channel.

On successful completion of this course, participants will be able to apply for a High Risk Work DOGGER (DG) Licence. There are costs associated with applying for the licence. Please visit www.worksafe.qld.gov.au for current licence fees.

Application

 

This unit specifies the skills and knowledge required to safely perform dogging work. Dogging consists of the application of slinging techniques to move a load, including the selection and inspection of lifting gear, and the directing of a plant operator in the movement of a load when the load is out of sight of the operator.

Dogging work is conducted in the construction industry and other industries where loads are lifted and moved using cranes or hoists.

Completion of the general construction induction training program, specified in the Safe Work Australia model Code of Practice: Construction Work, is required by anyone carrying out construction work. Achievement of CPCCWHS1001 - Prepare to work safely in the construction industry meets this requirement.

Competence in this unit does not in itself result in a licence. A licence is obtained after competence is assessed under applicable Commonwealth, state or territory work health and safety (WHS) regulations.

Additional Information

Course Timing:

Course days typically run from 6:30am to approximately 3:00pm - Participants are advised to arrive 15 minutes early to sign in.

Course Structure:
Please note: Competence in a unit does not in itself result in a licence.

Once the trainer believes the participant has demonstrated theoretical and practical understanding of the chosen course (i.e ‘Unit of Competency’), this will be verified with a certificate or what’s known as a ‘Statement of Attainment’ from us, On the Job Training.

They then begin the process of obtaining a licence, via the relevant practical and theoretical assessments or ‘National Assessment Instruments’ (NAI). This is conducted by an assessor on behalf of Workplace Health & Safety Queensland. On successful completion of the mandated assessment, they will be issued with a ‘Candidate Assessment Summary’ (CAS) by On the Job Training.

Upon successful completion of the NAI as stated above, the Office of Industrial Relations Queensland will contact them with instructions on how to apply for the high risk work licence.
