Finding the right working at heights course is essential for ensuring safety and legislative compliance. Intelligent Training Solutions offer a tailored working at heights course designed by experienced experts to equip workers in Victoria with the skills and knowledge to safely work from heights. Here’s what to consider when considering working at heights training.
What Qualifications Do You Need?
Working at heights training courses are designed to teach you how to work safely at heights in a variety of industries and is suitable for those working in operational or supervisory roles. Our course, for example, is ideal for gaining practical safety tips for working at heights in the following industries:
- Building and construction
- Maintenance work
- Glaziers and window cleaners
- Lighting technician
Licensing and certification requirements can vary between states, territories and industry sectors. You should check any additional requirements that may apply to your industry before assuming you are adequately qualified.
Just because a provider trains people and issues a certificate of competence in a height safety, it doesn’t always necessarily indicate the course is of a high quality. While the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) oversees the quality systems of a training organisation, they typically don’t have the resources to inspect every single provider.
Look for a provider with experienced trainers, a good reputation and adequate resources to deliver a high standard of training. Consider how long they’ve operated as a workplace training organisation and whether they incorporate practical, hands-on learning using actual height safety equipment rather than relying on online education.
