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 specifies the skills and knowledge required to safely operate a slewing mobile crane with a maximum rated capacity (MRC) over 100 tonnes, in accordance with all relevant legislative responsibilities. Competence in this unit, does not in itself result in a HRWL licence to operate this plant.

A person undertaking this unit must hold:

  • a current National High-Risk Work Licence (HRWL) to perform dogging or a certification for a specific VET course for HRWL to perform dogging
  • a current National HRWL to operate a Slewing Mobile crane (up to 100 Tonnes) or a certification for a specific VET course for HRWL to operate a Slewing Mobile crane (up to 100 Tonnes)

Slewing mobile crane means a mobile crane incorporating a boom or jib that can be slewed, but does not include:

  • a front-end loader or
  • a backhoe or
  • an excavator or
  • other earth moving equipment, when configured for crane operation.

A person performing this work is required to hold a slewing mobile crane with an MRC over 100 tonnes HRWL.

This unit requires a person operating a slewing mobile crane with an MRC over 100 tonnes to:

  • plan for the work/task
  • prepare for the work/task
  • perform work/task
  • pack up
