Slewing Crane

Slewing Crane (Up to 100 tonnes) - CSQ

Course Overview


This course is designed to ensure that participants have the skills and knowledge required to operate a slewing mobile crane (up to 100 tonnes) for licensing purposes. It encompasses the requirement for the up to 60 tonnes licence.

This course requires the operator to plan the work, conduct routine checks, set up crane, transfer loads, mobile loads and shut down and secure the crane.

Competence in this unit, does not in itself result in a High Risk Work Licence to operate this plant. A student must successfully complete the National Assessment Instrument (NAI) (which is the mandated assessment for the HRWL to operate the relevant licencing class as detailed in this unit) and be issued with an AS1.

This course is offered by WorkSafe Connect to corporate clients for a group of students. We do not currently offer this course to individuals as part of our public course offering.
