Online pre-study followed by half day attendance:
Our Safe Working at Heights course is for those who are required to work at heights. This course includes mandatory pre-study that is completed online before you attend our training venue. Once you have completed the online pre-study, you then attend our training venue in Rockingham for half a day. When you attend, additional information will be covered before you complete a written assessment, participate in practical training and finally undertake a practical assessment.
The online study can be completed on any device. It is comprised of 2 sections to read through carefully, with review questions to test your knowledge along the way – so we suggest you take notes as you go. To read through the sections and complete all the review questions takes an average of 3 hours to complete. We then require that you go back through each section to study the content two more times. Re-reading the information takes an average of 1 hour each time. We recommend that you complete the prescribed re-reading portion of the study over 2 days to help you absorb the information over a period of time.
There is no need to print any part of the online study as you will be welcome to collect a copy of the learner guide when you attend our training venue. If you would like a copy of the learner guide prior to attending the training venue you will be welcome to collect a copy at the office, or if there is sufficient time we can post a copy on request.
If you are experienced at working at heights, you will no doubt find the information is familiar and may be able to complete the study in less time to feel confident in your knowledge.
If you have language or learning difficulties you may choose to ask a family member or friend to be a ‘study buddy’, and help you complete the online study and learn the information. However, please note that there is a level of reading, writing and numeracy required to complete this course with us, please see the LLN information below for what this means.
There is no formal pre-requisite unit of competency required, however candidates MUST;
Once you enroll (book into the course), we will send you a log-in for the online pre-study component.
To satisfactorily complete this training with us, learners 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 learner 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 learner 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
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:
The course is conducted at our training venue in Rockingham – Unit 1, 8 Day Road, East Rockingham, Western Australia.
