Working on EWPs is considered a high-risk occupation and can lead to serious injury if the equipment is improperly used. Therefore thorough, accredited training is required to protect worker safety and the safety of others.

Our training course caters for EWPs under 11m in height and boom-type EWPs over 11m in height. Like our forklift licensing courses, successful completion of EWP training allows students to apply for a nationally recognised work licence from SafeWork NSW.

High risk work licence

A high risk work licence will be issued by SafeWork NSW for boom-type EWPs. At the completion of the course, successful participants will be given an application form for their high-risk work licence. Once filled out, this form can be taken to an Australia Post outlet, along with 100 points of identification and a passport photo.

Once the application has been submitted, SafeWork NSW will issue your licence. Your licence is not given to you immediately after completing your course at HSE.

Height Safety Engineers does not offer recognition of prior learning and/or credit transfer due to the high-risk nature of our training courses. It is also anticipated that participants will be new entrants or refreshing knowledge and skills in the area of study.

This will depend on the type of visa that you have.

For example restrictions apply to international visitors who hold a Student Visa. Any course undertaken by a Student Visa holder must be conducted by a provider who is registered on CRICOS. As Elbon Consulting Services Pty Ltd is not CRICOS approved we are unable to accept enrolments into any of our courses from any international visitor that holds a Student Visa.

International visitors who hold a Working Holiday Visa may be eligible to enrol into our courses once they arrive in Australia. This is important as some occupations in Australia will have legislative and/or licencing requirements relating to qualifications. International visitors will still be required to provide a valid USI (Unique Student Identifier) prior to enrolling into any Nationally Recognised Training. When registering for your USI number if you select Non-Australian Passport (with Australian Visa) as your form of ID, you will need to enter your Non-Australian passport number when creating your USI. The following details on the passport must match in order to verify in the USI registry system:

  • Family Name
  • Given Name(s)
  • Date of Birth
  • Passport Number
  • Country of Passport

Students from New Zealand will not be able to create a USI using their New Zealand passport until your passport has been registered with the Australian Department of Immigration. This will only happen when the student crosses the border into Australia. Once the passport is registered with the Department of Immigration it can be verified and the student will be able to create a USI using their New Zealand passport.

If you are an International Visitor, you will need to provide a copy of your Visa and/or Passport by emailing training@heightsafety.net. Your Visa details will be verified for eligibility to participate in accredited training within Australia. If you are ineligible, a full refund of fees paid will be provided.
