Course Overview

An elevating work platform (EWP) is either a telescoping device, hinged device, articulated device, or a combination of these used to support a platform from which personnel, equipment or materials can be elevated to perform work. Pinnacle Safety and Training’s EWP course covers the functions required to operate boom-type elevating work platforms with a boom length of 11 metres or more. Upon successfully completing this course, participants will have the required formal logbook training and assessment results to be eligible to apply for a High Risk Work (HRW) Licence.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: I live in a different State. Can I travel to Victoria to do my course?
A:
Yes. You can be issued with a VIC HRW licence and reside in another state if there are reasonable grounds. If you believe this applies to you, please contact WorkSafe’s Licensing Branch on 1300 852 562 or licensing@worksafe.vic.gov.au prior to enrolment in this course. Applications are considered on a case by case basis. Also note, when applying for your High Risk Work Licence, you will have to do so at a Victorian Post Office.

Q: What is the assessment process?
A:
Our Victorian EWP course is made up of one day of training and one day of assessment. Participants will be required to successfully complete a series of WorkSafe Victoria mandated assessment items. On day two you will undergo written knowledge and calculations assessment and (if eligible) you will undergo a practical skills assessment. All assessments will be “closed book” and conducted by a WorkSafe Vic Accredited Assessor (who is independent of Pinnacle Safety and Training). This mandated assessment is required to be administered by all RTOs offering this High Risk training.

Q: I failed one or more of the assessments. What does this mean for me? Can I come back and re-sit them?
A: Not everyone passes the first go – don’t be embarrassed if this happens. Even knowledgeable people may struggle to answer the technically specific exam, as the answers need to be provided precisely in accordance with WorkSafe Victoria standards. If this occurs, you may study the material in your own time, and return within 60 days to re-sit the assessment, at a cost of $198.

Q: I attended part of the training, and I now no longer wish to proceed with any more training or assessment. Can I have a refund?
A: No. The course fee you paid relates to the formal training you have already received. If you choose not to proceed with this for any reason, no refund or partial-refund will be provided. This is in accordance with our standard Terms and Conditions you accept upon enrolment.

Course Inclusions

  • Training conducted by an experienced mobile elevating plant operator

Each Trainee Must Provide

To successfully complete this certification, participants must:

  • Be at least 18 years of age
  • Have at least a Year 10 level of numeracy, literacy and communication skills

  • Provide photographic identification
  • Arrive in suitable attire: Safety boots, long pants and high-vis shirt

Language, Literacy and Numeracy (LLN)

  • If English is your second language, you must advise us at time of booking. Contact our Sales and Service Team on 1300 990 810 to determine your eligibility to undertake this training. We will assist you in any way we can, but due to the demands of the WorkSafe Vic assessment process, do not guarantee that every applicant will possess the level of LLN required for the assessment.
  • You will require at least a Year 10 level of numeracy, literacy and communication skills. If you have any doubts, please let us know so we can assist you.
  • The Regulator does not allow an interpreter to be used during the mandated formal assessment.

I have undertaken Forklift and Boom tickets with Pinnacle. Both times I was lucky enough to have Brad as the trainer. He is very knowledgeable, professional, detailed and clear in his training. Thanks again Brad and the Pinnacle team. We will be sending more staff to your courses.

Jason was a great trainer and made what I thought was going to be a daunting task quite enjoyable. I have come out of this course with great knowledge and confidence.

Jason was excellent in both the theory and practical sides. With his years of industry experience he could explain why and when to do certain things for safety while operating the EWP. I gained lots of confidence in myself with Jason’s help.
