Additional Course Information

*You may be required to start before 7:00am and stay after 3:30pm depending on how long the formal assessment runs for, we will advise of these times on the day of formal assessment.

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.

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.
