The course allows participants to prove to employers they are still competent in the safe operation of a boom type EWP and that they have knowledge of current industry regulations.
Our fee is $220 per person for non-statement of attainment outcomes, or $300 per person for statement of attainment outcomes.
Who Is This Course For?
This course is for anyone who currently holds a high-risk EWP licence and wants to be verified as competent in the safe operation of an above 11 meter EWP. It is also for employers who wish to verify & ensure that their staff are suitably competent in the safe operation of an EWP.
Australian and offshore health and safety legislation requires employers to ensure employees are competent in equipment operation and the tasks to be performed. Therefore, the VOC assessment is ideal for contractual arrangements and pre-employment competency checks.
The course allows students to prove to employers they are still competent and have knowledge of current industry regulations. The VOC allows workers to increase their chances of employment and cover any legal requirements the work may involve.

About the Course
This EWP VOC course is based on a national standard for EWP operators, and consists of both a knowledge assessment, as well as a practical observation assessment.
The theory assessment task requires you to complete a written or verbal response knowledge assessment involving several short response questions. The questions within this assessment relate directly to the safe operation of an above 11-meter EWP and are fundamental to your ability to perform workplace tasks correctly. The assessment is conducted over a two-hour period in a classroom setting directly supervised by the assessor. Your assessor will re-train you on any gaps in your knowledge that become apparent.
The practical assessment task requires you to demonstrate your skill and knowledge in operating an above 11-meter EWP, including pre-start-up procedures involving hazard identification and prevention, pre and post operational checks, taking the EWP through its full range of motion and capabilities, and shutting down and securing the machine upon completion. The assessment is conducted in a designated area which simulates a realistic workplace. The assessment is directly supervised by the assessor, and they will re-train you on any gaps in your knowledge/skills.
Participants must hold a current above 11-meter high-risk EWP licence of class WP. They must have this on their person during the practical assessment.
