The training offered by Intelligent Training Solutions provides the skills and knowledge to work at heights; however, as with any industry, additional skills or certifications may be required to perform a particular job or function. Intelligent Training Solutions accepts no responsibility for the subsequent actions of participants.
Heights training involves physical activity, including climbing, kneeling, reaching, and bending. Intelligent Training Solutions does not accept any responsibility for any harm suffered by you as a result of your participation in the course. If you have any special needs (including those in relation to Language, Literacy or Numeracy), a relevant disability or condition, or any other concerns, you should raise these prior to enrolment.
Even though any type of training in workplace safety is a serious matter, we pride ourselves on our energic, practical and engaging format that simulates real working scenarios. Our courses contain a lot of valuable content to ensure participants remain engaged rather than listening to war stories of the trainer’s past experiences. Unlike many other providers, our trainers are highly qualified from the construction and fire services industry and are all currently still working in their field. Our standards for trainers are high to ensure that the information you receive during this course is current, practical, and not just taught by anybody holding the certification. We believe in providing highly qualified trainers with real and current industry experience.
There are many topics within this course. For a full list of the information taught and assessed, we recommend viewing the RIIWHS204E criteria upon which our course is based.
