Application

 

This unit specifies the skills and knowledge required to safely operate a tower crane. Tower crane work involves a boom crane or a jib crane (with horizontal or luffing jib) mounted on a demountable or permanent tower structure.

Self-erecting tower cranes are not included in this unit of competency.

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.

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.
