EWP TRAINING COURSE
The EWP 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 $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.

The Yellow Card course is designed for those who need to use types of EWP’s that do not require a Worksafe High Risk licence. These include;
- Scissor lift (class SL),
- Vertical lift (class VL)
- Self Propelled Boomlift (under 11 metres) – (class BL)
- Trailer mounted Boomlift (under 11 metres) -(class TL)

If you require training any of the additional classes above (TL, or TM), we can arrange for you to do the course at an alternative location. Various locations are available throughout the Melbourne metropolitan area. On successful completion of this course you will receive an EWPA Yellow Card, which confirms that you have been trained in the safe use of the work platform(s) as noted on the ticket. You will also receive a Statement of Attainment RIIHAN301D Operate elevating work platform.
