High Risk Work (HRW) License Courses

The current national licensing standard requires operators of forklifts, order pickers or elevated work platforms to hold a National High Risk Work (HRW) License issued by WorkSafe.

We provide three High Risk Work license courses for forklifts, order pickers and elevated work platform (boom length 11 metres or more).

Upon the successful completion of either of these courses, students will then receive a Statement of Attainment indicating the nationally recognised Unit of Competency. A Notice of Assessment will then be issued to the student by the Worksafe Trainer/Assessor, which will become the student’s interim license until the HRW license is received from WorkSafe (valid for 60 days).

A copy of the students Statement of Attainment, Notice of Assessment, valid identifications and the completed WorkSafe License to Perform High Risk Work application, along with payment, will then be forwarded to WorkSafe by CERT Training. We take care of all the paperwork so your employee’s don’t have to.

WorkSafe will then forward the High Risk Work License to the student. This process may take between 4-5 weeks.

Verification of Competency (VOC) Courses

VOC courses provide a method of verifying the skills, abilities, knowledge and attitude of your employees to not only operate a piece of plant or equipment, but to do so in a safe manner. VOC courses are provided for the following mobile equipment;

  • Walkie stacker
  • Reach stacker
  • Container handlers

Whilst some these items of mobile equipment do not require the possession of a High Risk Work License, the OHS Act (1984) WA (section 19(1)(b)) requires evidence that suitable information, training and instruction has taken place.

Each course runs for approximately 2 hours.
