Course Overview

This course is designed to ensure that participants have the skills and knowledge required to operate a self-erecting tower crane for licensing purposes, and covers the operation of a crane where the tower structure and boom/jib elements are not disassembled into component sections, which can be transported between sites as a complete unit, and where the erection and dismantling processes are an inherent part of the crane's function.

This course requires the operator to plan the work, conduct routine checks, transfer loads and shut down and secure the crane.

This course is based on the requirements of the National Standard for Licensing Persons Performing High Risk Work.

This course is offered by WorkSafe Connect to employer groups at their site or as a public course offering at Helensvale, Gold Coast.
