  • We understand that you may have concerns about face to face training in these uncertain times.

    We also understand that you need to get your training done for any number of reasons - you need it for your job or to get a job perhaps.

    Maybe you've been laid off and want to use the time to get some training done to help your prospects of getting a new job.

    Whatever the reason, we want to help in the safest way possible.

    We are currently creating content so that you can learn the material at home, and only be face to face with us for the written assessment and practical training and assessment.

    Please choose which options would suit you best and one of our staff will call you back to discuss the options that will best protect you and your loved ones.
  • We are trying to keep you as safe as possible. Choose as many of the options as you wish that you would consider to get your course done. For the live video call, we would have small groups of people on the one video call - think of in a classroom, but from the comfort of wherever you are! Please note - this will only apply to the training component - the assessments (tests) MUST be done face to face in the classroom for Worksafe High Risk Work Licences. At this point in time, WorkSafe WA have not relaxed this requirement. Our plan is to have staggered time slots with very small groups for the assessments.
  • For the assessment (test), let us know what is the most likely time/s you could come in - you can choose more than one timeslot, and it is definintely NOT locking you in - it's just an indication to us so that we can stay open for longer if you need more flexibility.
  • optional, but helps us if we can't catch you on the phone.
  • Do you have any other comments or suggestions that would help you to get the training and tickets you need? Thanks to everyone that's already requested the answer sheet - but we can't do that!

Our advanced scaffolding course is for those who require a High Risk Work Licence for advanced scaffolding (SA class) issued from WorkSafe WA. This course is run at our training venue in Rockingham for three full days. When you attend, you will complete theory and practical training before you complete a written and calculations assessment, and undertake a practical assessment.

There is no need to complete any study before attending the training, however if you would like a copy of the learner guide prior to attending the training you are welcome to collect a copy at the office, or if there is sufficient time we can post a copy on request.

Course Information:

  • Duration – Three full days at our training venue.

  • How to plan for the job, identifying and controlling hazards
  • How to determine all forces and loads exerted on and by the scaffold
  • How to select and inspect the appropriate plant, scaffold and associated equipment

LLN – Language, Literacy and Numeracy Requirements:

To satisfactorily complete this training with us, learners need to be able to understand, read and write basic English and be able to learn to complete mathematical calculations.

For example, at the very least, the learner would need to be able to (without assistance) read and understand a passage of text with comprehension to answer questions in writing. For example, the learner would need to be able to read the text below and answer the question that follows;

When working around live power lines you must maintain the following distances:

  • Live insulated overhead power lines with a voltage of not more than 1000 volts – 0.5 m
  • Live uninsulated overhead power lines with a voltage of not more than 1000 volts – 1 m
  • Live uninsulated overhead power lines exceeding 1000 volts but not more than 33000 volts – 3 m
  • Live uninsulated overhead power lines with a voltage exceeding 33000 volts – 6 m

Question: If you are working near uninsulated power lines with a voltage of 11000 volts, what is the minimum distance you need to maintain?

Answer: 3 m

Learners are not expected to know the specific calculations that are used at advanced scaffolding level before attending the course. However, in order to learn the required calculations, learners will need to have a basic understanding of the following mathematical operations before the course – addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. The calculations in the course have written questions and contain multiple steps and formulas. Calculators are supplied and used during training and assessment.

Learning Support:

While reading and writing basic English, and completing mathematical calculations is required, there are some adjustments that can be made if required.

For example, we can offer:

  • Training material and assessments in larger print or on coloured paper (learners need to advise preferred colour prior to attending).
  • Additional theory and/or practical training.
  • Re-assessment opportunities following further training.
  • Oral assessment
    • Oral assessment may be offered only after a candidate has attempted the written assessment.
    • All candidates who complete the theory assessment orally, are required to complete a supplementary assessment to demonstrate they are able to read, understand and write basic English.
    • The supplementary assessment is similar to the examples given in LLN above and must be successfully completed by the candidate (on their own).
    • An oral assessment may not be able to be conducted on the same day the written assessment is attempted, as it requires a trainer to conduct it one on one with the candidate.
    • When a candidate successfully completes an oral assessment, they will then be required to successfully complete the practical assessment to be judged as competent

Course Location:

The course is conducted at our training venue in Rockingham – Unit 1, 8 Day Road, East Rockingham, Western Australia.
