Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 1. This is the first release of this unit of competency in the TLI Transport and Logistics Training Package.

Application

This unit involves the skills and knowledge required to operate a vehicle-mounted loading crane to shift loads with a capacity of less than 10 metre tonnes.

It includes positioning and stabilising a vehicle-mounted crane, operating a vehicle-mounted crane, monitoring lift conditions, packing up a vehicle-mounted crane after operations, and completing all required job records.

Work must be carried out in accordance with the relevant state/territory authority licence/permit requirements and regulations pertaining to vehicle-mounted loading cranes.

Work is performed under general supervision. It involves the application of routine principles and procedures when operating a vehicle-mounted loading crane in a variety of operational contexts.

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.
