Why Train With Us?

We pride ourselves on providing the best quality training for high risk work licences in south east Queensland. Experienced trainers provide a learning environment that is both comfortable and enjoyable.

The training site has 8 cranes which uniquely gives you the opportunity to get hands on with all the relevant cranes for a licence - not just some. Our aim is to give you the confidence you need on site after gaining your basic, intermediate or advanced accreditations. In addition to dogging, rigging and crane operating courses, we also offer all levels of scaffolding, work platform and forklift training.

Our main facility is at Helensvale by the M1 on the Gold Coast, but we can train and assess anywhere in Australia or overseas. Check out our exceptional reputation from student reviews on Google & Facebook.

Personnel & Materials Hoist Courses

We offer the following personnel & materials hoist courses (2 day courses):


What are personnel & materials hoists?

Personnel & Materials Hoists are temporary work platforms used for providing logistical support, transferring personnel and materials during a construction process.  These courses will ensure you can not only operate them, but above all operate them safely.

There are two licence classes that qualify individuals to work with and operate hoists:

  • Personnel & Materials Hoists (HP)
  • Materials Only Hoists (HM)

First of all, these units require the operator to plan work, conduct routine checks of controls and operation.  Secondly, you'll conduct hoist operation, shut down and secure a hoist.  Most importantly, hoists are available on site for your to get hands on with operating the equipment. As a result you'll have practical 'real life' experience when you obtain your licence.

Courses are based upon the National Standard for Licensing Persons Performing High Risk Work.  All hoist training and assessment is conducted and accredited by On the Job Training.
