About the Course:
Our advanced rigging course is for those who require a High Risk Work Licence for advanced rigging (RA class) issued from WorkSafe WA. This course is run at our training venue in Rockingham for four full days. During the course you will complete theory training before you complete a written assessment, and participate in practical training before completing the practical assessment. Following the successful completion of the training and assessment for the unit of competency, you will then be further assessed using the National Assessment Instrument (NAI) for the purpose of obtaining a High Risk Work Licence for Advanced Rigging (RA class).
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.
- This unit of competency is nationally recognised, those who complete this course successfully will be issued with a Statement of Attainment for CPCCLRG4001 – Licence to perform rigging advanced level.
- Unit of Competency Assessment – You will complete a written assessment and a practical assessment to demonstrate competence against the unit of competency.
- NAI Assessment – Once you have been judged as competent against the unit of competency, we will then assess you against the national assessment instrument (NAI). Note: When you undertake the NAI assessment, there is a theory and a calculation assessment, both of which are closed book; that is, you cannot look at any reference material during the assessment.
- Successful completion of the NAI assessment will allow you to apply for an Advanced Rigging (RA 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 select and inspect the appropriate rigging equipment
- How to prepare the site and equipment, inspecting ground suitability and determining all forces and loads associated with erecting and dismantling structures
- How to erect and dismantle structures and plant to appropriate standards
- Hold a current High Risk Work Licence for Intermediate Rigging (RI class) OR a have a current Notice of Assessment for RI issued by a WorkSafe Assessor
- Have completed CPCCLRG3002A – Licence to perform rigging intermediate level, OR have completed CPCCLRG3002 – Licence to perform rigging intermediate level. If you have completed CPCCLRG3002 please phone us on 9592 2535 to discuss your situation, we may be able to shorten your course
- 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

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 rigging 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.
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.
