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 dogging 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, division and square roots. 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.


We are confident that the quality of our training resources and our experienced trainers will give you the best possible training for you to achieve required competency.  So we will offer you a  full, no questions asked, 100% money back guarantee if you don't pass the assessments.

Why do we offer this?  It's simple - it is your hard earned money and putting your faith in our trainers and the quality of our training is what we value.  We have full confidence in our trainers and assessors to deliver high level of training always.

We recognise that not everyone learns at the same level or time frame.  That's why we are different - take the time that you need, to learn the way you feel is best for you.

At KG training & Assessing Pty Ltd we don’t just sign off everyone as “competent”.  You still need to put in every effort to achieve a positive outcome.  To assist you further, we offer flexible learning options for you to achieve a positive outcome. However, we guarantee to refund your fees if we feel that you will not be able to achieve desired competencies - sometimes even in the first attempt. Yes - we lose money but we put our learner’s needs over profit.


All this talk is great, but what does the training centre look like?  Here are a couple of images to give you an idea of the environment you will be doing your training in.

About KG Training

KG Training is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) - Provider Number 52112.  This means we are registered with the Training Accreditation Council so you can be sure we are legitimate.

Our trainers literally have decades of experience in industry, which means they know what it is like to be in your shoes.  They are all down to earth people who enjoy a laugh and a joke whilst providing a professional service to you.  I mean, all work and no play isn't very exciting!

If You've Come This Far, You Must Be Keen

So, you have made it a fair way down the page but haven't booked yet.  This means you must be really keen to do the course, but something is holding you back.  While we aren't sure what is holding you back, here's a few things that may help put your mind at ease.

Is your 100% Money Back Guarantee Real?

Absolutely it is!  You are paying for a service, and that service is being trained with the ultimate goal of getting your Dogging Licence.  Why should you pay if we aren't good enough to train you?  Other training centres will try and tell you that you have to pay for extra training.  They only tell you that so they can charge you more.  You are paying us to learn - if we don't teach properly, you don't pay - it's that simple!

Do I Really Get To Do The Training 3 Times If I Need It?

You bet you do!  Most people don't need it, but we all know that sometimes when you are doing a test you might forget things because you put yourself under pressure to pass!  Most people put this pressure on themselves because they have parted with their hard earned cash to sit the course and of course you don't want to blow your money!  This is why we offer 3 sittings on the course for the one price - we know that being an adult and having to come back to "school" can be a bit sucky, so we try and take all the pressure off you - and we do this by having quality trainers and quality training materials.

Is There Really Different Ways I Can Learn The Material?

Totally!  Many training centres take a "one size fits all" approach because it is cheaper and faster for them.  That's right - not you, but them.  We are revolutionising the way training is done by giving you the choice in how you want to learn.  It's your money, so it should be your way.  Sound fair?

Advantages vs Disadvantages Of Using KG Training

OK - now you might be thinking "what's the catch".  We don't think there are any, but here's what we came up with:

The Pros List

  • Trainers with decades of experience means quality learning
  • 100% Money Back Guarantee
  • Flexible delivery of the training material to make your life easier
  • We adapt to your experience, learning ability or lack of confidence
  • Professional organisation that knows how to make learning enjoyable
  • A stress free environment - we work with you, not against you.  You are stumping up the cash after all!

The Cons List

  • If you are blatantly lazy, we aren't for you...
  • We don't hand out tickets like lollies...
  • You might be able to save a few bucks on the headline rate elsewhere - but watch out for the fine print...
  • We do expect you to learn, after all, isn't that what you are paying us for...?
  • YES! - we do things "right" but that means your ticket is never at risk of being knocked back or cancelled due to dodgy training...  And yes, this has happened because of other training providers before!
