This course requires the operator to plan the work, conduct routine checks, set up elevating work platform, operate elevating work platform and shut down and secure elevating work platform.

This course is offered by On the Job Training (RTO 70023) to corporate clients for a group of students. We do not currently offer this course to individuals as part of our public course offering.

This is a 2-day intensive training and assessment course. Participants will attend on all 2 days to complete theory, practical training and student will be formally assessed for theory and practical assessments with our qualified trainer and assessor on day 2. On successful completion of this course, participants will be able to apply for a HIGH-RISK EWP (WP) licence.

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 2 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.
