Description

This qualification provides a trade outcome in mobile crane operations in the residential and commercial construction industry. Due to the high risk nature of the job role, the qualification provides a strong focus on safety requirements.

Occupational titles may include:

  • licensed crane operator.
  • The qualification has core unit of competency requirements that cover common skills, as well as specialist skills for crane operators in two specialist streams:

  • Stream 1 20 tonne (C2) licence
  • Stream 2 60 tonne (C6) licence.
  • Additional licensing for rigging and elevated work platforms is available depending on the choice of elective units of competency.

    The construction industry strongly affirms that training and assessment leading to recognition of skills must be undertaken in a real or very closely simulated workplace environment and this qualification requires all units of competency to be delivered in this context.

    Completion of the general induction training program specified by the National Code of Practice for Induction Training for Construction Work (ASCC 2007) is required before entering a construction work site. Achievement of unit CPCCOHS1001A covers this requirement.
