Slewing Crane

Licence To Operate Vehicle Loading Crane

Course Overview

This course is designed to ensure that participants have the skills and knowledge required to operate a vehicle loading crane with a capacity of 10 metre tonnes or more, mounted on a vehicle for the principle purpose of loading and unloading such a vehicle, including the application of load estimation and slinging techniques to move a load, for licensing purposes.

This course requires the operator to plan the work, conduct routine checks, set up crane, transfer loads and shut down and secure 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 corporate clients for a group of students. We do not currently offer this course to individuals as part of our public course offering.
