Course Details

Certification

National unit of competency

  • RIIHAN301E - Operate Elevating Work Platform

Please note that this is the nationally recognised unit of competency. It is recognised and accepted throughout Australia. Please be aware that “Yellow Cards” are issued by an industry body outside of the VET system. You do not require a Yellow Card to operate an EWP or scissor lift. This is a common misconception.

Course Duration

1 day (allow approximately 8 hours)

Price

  • $299.00 pp for public courses. Book online and save $10.00! (scroll up, find your date, and click Book Now)
  • For group bookings outside our public course schedule or at your location, please submit your group booking enquiry here for an obligation free quote.

VACCINATION REQUIREMENTS FOR VIC PARTICIPANTS

Courses up to and including 29 October 2021:
All students (16 years and over) must have received their first COVID-19 vaccine dose.

Courses from 30 October 2021 onwards:
All students (16 years and over) must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

Please bring your COVID-19 vaccination certificate or other valid proof to your course. This is a condition of entry to your course. You will be unable to undertake your course without showing proof of vaccination. Instructions on how to access this certificate are available here.

If you are booking on behalf of other participants, please ensure they are vaccinated in accordance with the above requirements and will have proof of vaccination available on the day of their course.

Course Overview

This course is designed to give participants the knowledge and skills to operate elevating work platforms which are not classified as requiring a high risk work (HRW) licence. If you need to operate boom lifts that have a capacity beyond 11m, please see our EWP over 11m course.

After successfully completing this nationally-recognised course you will be trained and competent to operate:

  • EWP (Boom Lift) under 11m
  • Scissor Lift (up to any height)
  • Vertical Lift*

*The unit RIIHAN301E covers the operation of a range of elevating work platforms under 11m. Our course will provide participants with skills and knowledge to operate elevating work platforms that are transferable to any EWP under 11m. The specific plant used in our training courses are boom lift (BL) and scissor lift (SL). All Australian work sites have an obligation to induct new workers on the plant they are required to use. However, we do recommend that workers check with their employer(s) as to the applicability of any training related to on-site plant and equipment, as well as any site-specific training requirements.

Competent students will receive a card detailing the unit of competency and the class of machines they were trained and assessed in (at this time, boom [BL] and scissor [SL]).

For on-site training (group courses) we can contextualise the training to the specific plant being used on site and identify this on the card issued to competent students.

I recently attended the EWP Under 11m course at Silverwater. I walked in with no experience and walked out confident. No need for a long review here, you attend these training facilities to achieve the competency and I did just that. Well done Pinnacle, you are way ahead of the competition.

Public Course Participant

I completed the EWP under 11 metre course yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed it… Phil the instructor was brilliant. He held the class well and he spoke from experience not just from time teaching a course. He was hard but fair in the assessment practical and you kinda have to be considering the work that students will be undertaking upon their completion. Facilities were top notch and nothing was too much trouble. All staff that I came into contact with were polite and very professional! I would certainly recommend Pinnacle Safety and Training for anyone looking at completing industry specific training and certification and I will certainly use them again when choosing my next course.
