*LLN – Language, Literacy and Numeracy Requirements:
To satisfactorily complete this course with us, candidates need to be able to understand, read and write basic English and have a basic understanding of numerical values.
For example, at the very least, the candidate would need to be able to (without assistance) READ and WRITE by following simple instructions like;
Look at the Risk Assessment
Find ‘Confirm Task’
Write down what the ‘Potential Hazards’ are.
As an example of understanding numerical values a candidate would need to have to satisfactorily complete this course with us, see the problem below;
Some work at heights is on scaffolding. Scaffolding is built to be able to bear a certain amount of load weight.
Scaffolding that is Light Duty can bear up to 225kg, Medium Duty – up to 450kg and Large Duty – up to 675kg.
Question 1: If the work will involve a load weight on the scaffold of 475kg, can you use a Medium Duty scaffold?
Question 2: What duty of scaffold is required for a load weight of 205kg?
Answer 1 = No, Answer 2 = Light
Where there is a demonstrated requirement, KGTA are able to offer candidates:
- Assessment materials in larger print or on coloured paper (candidates need to advise preferred colour prior to attending).
- Additional time to complete the theory assessment.
- 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 and understand numerical values.
- 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 an assessor 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
If a candidate does not achieve competency in any assessment they will need to complete the full one day course, with training and assessment. They will be required to pay the difference in the cost between the refresher and full one day course.
We are located in Rockingham – Unit 1, 8 Day Road, East Rockingham, Western Australia.
