*The participant must be supervised when they operate the equipment or perform the activities by someone holding an equivalent license. The participant must maintain a record (training log book or similar) of workplace experience. Once the supervisor is confident that the participant has practiced all tasks and is ready for assessment, they must notify us to arrange a date/time for assessment.

**3-4 hours has been allocated for the theory and calculations assessment, however the time required to complete the assessment will depend on the individual student/s and may be reduced or lengthened as required.

Unit of Competence

TLILIC2005A Licence to operate a boom-type elevating work platform (boom length 11 metres or more)


Who can undertake this training?

Participants being assessed must be 18 years old or more. Participants must also produce proof of identity before the final assessment can be undertaken. 

Participants are required to have sufficient numeracy and literacy skills to carry out basic mathematical calculations, use a calculator, understand written work instructions and understand tables and figures for job procedures. We can provide support in some areas. Where we cannot we will refer to other agencies who may be able to assist.

Participants must supply and wear PPE including long pants, work boots, hard hat and safety glasses.


How is the course conducted and assessed?

The process will be conducted in three stages — training, workplace experience and finally assessment.

The course is delivered onsite for those wanting dedicated training. For those wishing to attend a public course, please see our separate public course flyer (on side bar). The training component will encompass theoretical and practical training for operating an EWP. At this stage there is no formal assessment conducted, however a formative assessment is undertaken to ensure safety requirements are met before workplace experience.

The participant then practices their skills in the workplace as the next step. This involves completing the required experience record book as provided by Total Management and Training (TMT) in a workplace. This experience record must be submitted to TMT before booking the practical assessment. The practical assessment is then scheduled (providing enough time to allow notification to Workplace Health & Safety Queensland (WHSQ) which is a Government requirement).

The final part of the course is completion of the WHSQ assessment. You must attend one of our theory assessment days where you will complete the theory and calculations assessment. Once you are competent in the theory and calculations you are then required to complete the practical assessment. Please note the public course fee includes one attempt at the practical assessment. Subsequent reassessments due to a not yet satisfactory result will attract additional fees.

Once all of the assessment tasks are completed, you will be eligible to apply for your High Risk Work Licence. Please note this is a separate process to the training and your license application will attract further fees. These fees are set by Workplace Health and Safety Queensland, and TMT has no control over the fee structure.


What will participants receive upon successful completion?

Upon successful completion of the course you will be issued with the relevant High Risk Work application documentation together with a Statement of Attainment for the unit of competency completed.
