Crane Course (C6)

TLILIC0013 Licence to operate a slewing mobile crane (up to 60 tonnes)

A Slewing mobile crane is a mobile crane that incorporates a boom or jib that can be slewed. This course would be relevant to the activities of a person operating a slewing mobile crane with a capacity up to 60 tonnes. Operating this crane requires a High Risk Work Licence (HRWL) issued by Workplace Health and Safety QLD. The size and volume of the vehicle demands that it be handled by a trained and licensed person. Ascent Training Solutions has developed a high quality detailed training course that prepares you for the operation of a slewing mobile crane.

The purpose of the ‘C6 training course’ is to provide students with the skills and knowledge to operate a Slewing Mobile Crane with capacity of up to 60 tonnes, in conjunction with Safe Work Australia’s National Standard for Licensing Persons conducting high risk work. This training in its current form, meets the criteria stated in the state and territory licensing and unit of competency requirements. A Slewing mobile crane is defined as a mobile crane that incorporates a boom or jib that can be slewed. It does not include front end loader, excavator, back hoe or alternative earth moving machinery when configured for the operation of a crane. This course would be relevant to the activities of a person operating a slewing mobile crane with a capacity up to 60 tonnes. To conduct the operations of this type of crane, you are required to hold a High-Risk Work Licence (HRWL) issued by Work Place Health and Safety QLD. The size and volume of the vehicle demands that it be handled by a trained and licensed person. The training course covers many aspects that include how to plan, prepare, and operate a slewing mobile crane of up to 60 tonnes.
