A list of WorkSafe’s current licence fees can be found here. The licence fees vary based on whether you currently hold a high risk licence.
Basic Scaffold Dates
This course is run over four consecutive days, the date shown is the start date
About the Course:
Our basic scaffolding course is for those who require a High Risk Work Licence for basic scaffolding (SB class) issued from WorkSafe WA. This course is run at our training venue in Rockingham for four 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.
- Duration – Four full days at our training venue. Course hours are 8.00am – 4.30pm, registration is at 7.45am on the first day.
- Method – Face-to-face training and assessment at our training venue. You will complete a calculations, written and practical assessment.
- This unit of competency is nationally recognised, those who complete this course successfully will be issued with a Statement of Attainment for CPCCLSF2001 – Licence to erect, alter and dismantle scaffolding basic level.
- Successful completion of the NAI assessment will allow you to apply for a Basic Scaffolding (SB class) High Risk Work Licence with WorkSafe WA – we lodge the application for you.
What the course covers:
- 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
- How to set up the task, checking ground suitability, preparing scaffold and associated equipment for erection
- How to erect scaffold and scaffold equipment
- How to dismantle scaffold and scaffold equipment
There is no formal pre-requisite unit of competency required, however candidates MUST;
- Be able to understand, read and write English, and be able to learn mathematical formulas and calculations (for further information on the level of ability required, see ‘LLN’ below)
- Be at least 18 years of age or over
- Bring either one form of primary ID OR three forms of secondary ID. One form of ID MUST show the candidate’s name and date of birth
- Primary ID includes;
- Australian passport – Current or expired within the last two years, but not cancelled
- A current drivers licence or learners permit
- A current high risk licence
- A current international passport
- A Western Australian Photo Card (formerly Proof of Age card)
- Click here for a full list of primary and secondary ID
- If you hold a valid high risk licence issued in a state other than WA you must bring it with you on the day of the course
- You MUST bring one passport photo (even if you hold a current WA issued High Risk Work Licence – this is a new requirement from WorkSafe, a passport photo is now required for each application to WorkSafe). Regular photos or a photocopy of a passport will not be accepted by WorkSafe.
- Wear safety boots
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 basic 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.
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
The course is conducted at our training venue in Rockingham – Unit 1, 8 Day Road, East Rockingham, Western Australia.
