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 complete basic maths. Calculators are supplied and used during training and assessment.
For example, at the very least, the learner would need to be able to (without assistance) READ and WRITE by following simple instructions like;
Look at the Risk Assessment
Find ‘Fitting Fall Arrest (PPE) Equipment’
Write down what the ‘Potential Hazards’ are.
As an example of the basic maths a learner would need to be able to do to satisfactorily complete this course with us, see the problem below;
You are going to use an EWP to do repair work. The EWP is rated at 250kg. You weight 85kg and your coworker weighs 97kg.
What weight in tools can you have with you to do the work?
Answer = No more than 68kg (250 – 85 – 97 = 68)
While understanding numerical values, reading and writing basic English 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 has successfully completed the calculations assessment and the 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.
