Assessment Requirements

The course will be based on theoretical sessions, equipment demonstrations, practical exercises and written assessments

In undertaking the written component of the Assessment Instrument WorkSafe does not permit, under any circumstances, an interpreter to be used and requires that participants attempt the written examination in their own handwriting. Being able to write answers to the written questions is an essential means of demonstrating to the Assessor that they can read the English language. However, when marking written assessments, Assessors can seek verbal clarification/enhancement of questions not fully answered.

WorkSafe also confirms that all written assessments for High Risk Worksafe Licenses must be "closed book" in that participants must not have access to any information.

Participants who are deemed competent will receive a Nationally recognised Statement of Attainment issued by RIKLAN Emergency Management Services (RTO 51994) under the Australian Qualifications Framework.

Delivery Mode

Face to face and practical hands-on training conducted by an experienced Trainer/Assessor with strong knowledge of relevant Legislation, Australian Standards and Codes of Practice.

Participants must wear long pants, long sleeve shirts and steel cap boots.


If you are a new or continuing student undertaking Nationally recognised training, you will need a USI in order to receive your Qualification or Statement of Attainment for this training program.
