EWP Boom Type Over 11m Training (WP licence class), accessible to the Gold Coast & Brisbane


This handy EWP ticket (for operating an EWP boom length 11m or more) results in a high risk WP licence class used in the many sectors that require personnel to perform tasks from height on EWP’s.  This is different to the ‘RIIHAN301E – Operate Elevated Work Platform‘ which includes vertical scissor lift training, that students often partake in also as an expectation of some employers, site supervisors and safety officers.  Our training yard is at ‘On the Job Training’, located at Stapylton, halfway between the Gold Coast & Brisbane.

This elevated work platform licence course is designed to ensure that participants have the skills and knowledge required to operate a boom-type elevating work platform (boom length 11 metres or more) for licensing purposes, and involves the operation of a telescoping device, hinged device, or articulated device or any combination of these used to support a platform on which personnel, equipment and materials may be elevated to perform work.

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.

In order to obtain a licence, the candidate, after successful completion of the unit of competency, can choose to participate in the theoretical and practical assessments known as ‘National Assessment Instruments’ (NAI) held at the conclusion of each course at On the Job Training. This is conducted by an assessor on behalf of Workplace Health & Safety Queensland. On successful completion of the mandated assessments, 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.

Reassessments: Should the participant not achieve competence in any of the NAI’s, then they will be entitled to no more than one reassessment with no charge. At the RTO’s discretion, any additional reassessments will incur further fees of $250 each including charges for retraining of $500 if required.

For more information about costs associated with high risk work licences visit the Workplace Health & Safety website.
