EWP TRAINING COURSE / EWP HIGH RISK LICENCE

The EWP/EWPA training course is designed for those who need to operate Boom Lift with a boom length of 11 metres or more. To operate this equipment you are required to hold a nationally recognised WorkSafe Licence to Perform High Risk Work WP class (commonly known as an EWP ticket or Boom Lift ticket). On successful completion of this course you will receive a Statement of Attainment; TLILIC0005 Licence to operate a boom type elevating work platform (boom length 11m or more) issued by Start Training, and a temporary WorkSafe Licence; Licence to Perform High Risk Work – WP. You then need to take this to Australia Post and pay a licence fee of $67.60 to WorkSafe Victoria to receive you five year WP Licence.

If you need to operate other type of EWP equipment including scissor lift, vertical lift, or a Boom Lift with a length of less than 11 metres, see our Yellow Card course. On successful completion of this course you will receive an EWPA issued Yellow Card and a Statement of Attainment RIIHAN301 Operate elevating work platform. If you enrol in a two day EWP course, you are able to complete a Yellow Card at the same time, resulting in considerable savings.

Highly recommended. I took the Forklift Licence course in Sunshine with Tom as a trainer. The course is very complete and straightforward. The contents of it get dealt with in class and then reviewed again so you get plenty of help and they walk you through everything. In terms of actual practice, you get what you need and if you feel like you need a bit more, they provide it. All in all, Start Training makes it very easy to get a licence.

COULD NOT RECOMMEND HIGHLY ENOUGH!!I just want to say a HUGE thank you to the Sales Consultants, Receptionist and Trainer, Terry from Ferntree Gully for my experience at Start Training.They were extremely understanding of my unfortunate personal circumstances that caused me to be unavailable to attend the second day of my EWP course! A huge shout out to Shannon & Molly for being so supportive and helping me complete this course via constant emails to see how I was going and possible future dates for EWP course. And another amazing Shout out to Kirstie and Terry, from Ferntree Gully training centre, for not only allowing me to attend the second day of an EWP course a few weeks later but Terry being kind enough to stay behind after Day 1 of that course and have me come in and practice and refresh me on how to use the EWP. Thank you for taking time out of your day and waiting around to help me to become familiar with it all and thank you Kirstie for setting that up for me.This is such a professional RTO that really wants the best out of everyone. They go above and beyond to help you achieve your course. Terry was extremely approachable and I felt comfortable asking him many questions. The trainers make sure you understand all the information needed before taking the assessment and go through it in a thorough manner. Terry had a great amount of knowledge not just with EWPs but in many other HRW courses like Dogmans & Crane. You could tell he had a wealth of experience in the construction industry.As long as you do a bit of homework before the course by making the effort to read through and complete the workbook, you will have no issues.

Had a great experience getting my forklift license here. Nathan was an amazing and thorough instructor and made sure we were all ready for our tests. There was a perfect level of seriousness and friendliness among all of the staff along with coffee, tea, snacks and a general feeling of welcomeness. Highly recommend coming here.

I highly recommend Sunshine West location. Jasmine at the front is helpful and friendly. My LO teacher Josh was really good at his craft and very professional. Clean facilities and they even offer cereal for breaky as well as tea and coffee throughout the day.

I was fortunate enough to have had Nathan as my trainer, and from my experience he is one of the best trainers out there. He understood how each individual had different ways of learning and would quickly adapt to your needs, making it an awesome experience!the rest of the staff were very friendly and were easy to approach.thank you Start Training for having me, and thank you for the cookies!!! 🙂

Extremely professional. I was very nervous and the two trainers Nick and Damo made me feel at ease very quickly. The teaching style not only made me more confident but they also shared their professional knowledge so I was able to hone skills I already had. Highly recommended.

I completed two courses with Nick and Damo in Ferntree Gully and one course with Josh in Sunshine. All three have a great sense of humour, easy to work with and understand. I am dyslexic and most courses are never easy for me. I informed Nick and Josh about my condition and both went the extra yard to make sure I'm coping ok.To their credit, I did not need extra assistance.To anyone out there that suffers the same condition I highly recommend Start Training.

Thanks to all the staff at Sunshine West especially the trainer's and assessors Tom and John for a fantastic learning experience. Highly recommend them to anyone looking to obtain a forklift licence. They made the process very clear and easy to learn and follow. Tom's jokes need a little work but it was enjoyable and educational at the same time. Very satisfying experience.

I did my 2 day forklift course at Ferntree Gully a few days ago and everyone out there were great to deal with.Thanks so much to my trainers Rob and John. Those guys did an amazing job of helping everyone dissect and understand all the information with a great balance of theory and practical work. They catered to a variety of experience levels in our group and did an awesome job of communicating all that info in a way that was easy for everyone to understand and remember with confidence.Their attention to detail and knowledge was very impressive and the focus on safety was really well presented.A shout out to Kirstie as well for the great communication, taking care of the booking and providing all the information ahead of time to get the ball rolling.These guys are awesome, I definitely recommend them to anyone after a great training experience.5 stars.

My Husband and I did our course for forklifts recently and I highly recommend coming here and train! Both Rob and Nathan were extremely helpful in teaching and assisting us whenever we struggled to understand. Lessons were a lot of fun and a lot of stories and experiences were shared which helped us in memorising before the tests! Great place to go for your license!

Had a forklift course at start training in Ferntree gully. Rob and Chris were great instructors helping you with things you don’t know and answering any questions you have in regards to getting the forklift licence. Would recommend this place to anyone needing to get a forklift licence.

I was nervous going into the course at the Carrum Downs site as this was my very first experience with Forklifts. The trainer was Barry who was very experienced. You will receive a training manual and a workbook when you signup for the course and you have to complete the workbook to be able to take the theory test. So I recommend you give yourself a few days and study hard when filling in the workbook as this will be used throughout the course and you will be tested in the theory and practical exams with questions from that workbook. The practical training and testing was great ... supervision given, but they let you get out there and make mistakes ... I asked if I could do some extra driving and they let me stay late after the first day and early morning on the second day to get extra practice in. I passed the exams on the first attempt. The one thing that really stands out is the quality of the training ... they drill OHS and WHS throughout the theory and back it up with the practical, so you learn organically and I think it's training that will last you in your job. I wouild definitely recommend Start Training and I want to go back and do more courses. Plus, if you are unemployed, your Work Skill centre will pay for the training fee.
