This course is designed to ensure that participants have the skills and knowledge required to perform basic rigging work associated with movement of plant and equipment, steel erections, hoists (including mast climbing hoists), placement of pre-cast concrete, safety nets and static lines, perimeter safety screens and shutters; and cantilever crane loading platforms for licensing purposes.

This course requires the applicant to be able plan the work, select and inspect equipment, set up task, erect structures and plant and dismantle structures and plant.

Please note that this course has a pre-requisite requirement that participants hold the unit CPCCLDG3001 - Licence to perform dogging or holding a valid licence for dogging. Participants will have to provide a copy of their Statement of Attainment or their High-Risk licence as evidence.

This course is based upon the National Standard for Licensing Persons Performing High Risk Work.

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 the course 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.

On successful completion of this course, participants will be able to apply for a High-Risk Work Rigger Basic 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 basic rigging work.

Riggers use mechanical load shifting equipment and associated gear to move, place or secure loads, including plant, equipment or members of a structure. Riggers ensure the stability of those members and set up and dismantle hoists.

This unit applies to rigging work involving:

  • Structural steel erection
  • Hoists
  • Pre-cast concrete members of a structure
  • Safety nets and static lines
  • Mast climbing work platforms
  • Perimeter safety screens and shutters
  • Cantilevered crane loading platforms.

Rigging work is undertaken in construction and other industries where load shifting equipment is used to move, place or secure loads.

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.
