No Better Place to Get a Crane Ticket

At On the Job Training, our our mission is to help create a safer industry, on the ground and in the sky.  Literally and metaphorically, as the only RTO in Australia with both a Tower Crane and Self-Erecting Tower Crane on site.

Crane tickets such as the C6 encompass many classes of cranes – slew and non-slew included. Operating a 14T Franna ‘pick & carry’ crane is very different to a slewing 7T city crane.  Most RTO’s only meet the minimum requirement to train and assess on one crane. We’ll give you as much as experience as we can on our entire fleet with the aim of you leaving a more competent, confident and safer operator.

Slewing Mobile Crane Licence All Classes

Under WHS Legislation you must be licenced to operate cranes in Australia.  To obtain a licence to perform high-risk work, you must undertake formal training and successfully complete a national assessment for the class of licence.

Slew Cranes include a multitude of cranes including, Mobile Slew & Non-Slew cranes, Crawler crane, All-Terrain crane, Rough Terrain crane, Pin Jib’s etc

They come in the following classes:

Due to legislation introduced in February 2022, there is no longer an official pre-requisite to hold either a C2 or C6 licence for 2 years as part of the ‘Licence to Operate a Mobile Crane (up to 100 tonnes (C1) or over 100 tonnes (C0)) units. The requirement to hold a Dogman’s licence (DG) as part of any Licence to Operate a Mobile Crane unit was also removed.

Please note: It is still a policy of our RTO that:

A particpant wishing to complete any mobile crane licenced unit hold a Dogman’s licence or be deemed competent in the Licence to Perform Dogging unit.

A participant wishing to complete the Licence to Operate a Mobile Crane up to or over 100 tonne units hold some sort of crane licence recognised in Australia.

To read more about these changes, our RTO’s policy about this and training options, read our blog here.
