Upskill for new job opportunities in 2017

Forklift Licence

As 2016 is nearing its end, it’s time to reflect on the year that was and look ahead to what you want to do differently in 2017.

For most, a new year means a fresh start and a great time to assess whether you’re happy with your current position, and if you’re not… perhaps you should look to upskill for 2017.

At Elevated Training, we’re already in the Christmas spirit, which is why we’re offering you the gift of learning – at a heavily discounted price.

Between now and 15 January 2017, you can get gain new qualifications with an LO or LF forklift ticket for just $350. That’s a saving of $125 from the usual LO/LF licence fees.

If you’ve already got a job operating a forklift, but you want to broaden the scope of jobs you can work on, there are several other tickets to consider to improve your work opportunities in 2017.

Completing a brief course with Elevated Training allows you to be formally qualified to fulfil new roles that come hand in hand with the line of work you already do, or those you want to expand into.

The difference between working safely at heights and EWP tickets


EWP tickets are licences to operate Elevated Work Platforms.

The nature of this title can often confuse new people entering the industry, with an alternate qualification – working safely at heights.

While the work platforms are elevated, and some above 11m, the skills and understanding required to operate them is different to learning to perform work at varying heights in the workplace.

Working safely at heights courses instill you with the knowledge and precautions for instances in the workplace where you’d be stepping up onto a ladder, for example, and focuses on fall prevention.

Whereas elevated work platforms, such as scissor lifts, require training that prepares the worker to operate the machinery – which also happens to elevate to higher levels in the workplace.

There’s also a different licence required again for working with elevated work platforms over 11m.

At Elevated Training, we specialise in these courses with training fees as little as $300.

Working safely at heights is an important ticket to obtain when you’re looking to work on construction sites, or in the logistics, resources and infrastructure industries.

We offer one-day courses with the training you need to become qualified with a Working Safely at Heights licence for just $300.

Tickets to operate Elevated Work Platforms are also a one-day course which we run weekly on Saturdays for the same fee of $300.

In this course, you learn not only to plan and prepare for operation, but also to conduct work activities with the platform and carry out routine maintenance and the likes.

The other course for Operating Elevated Work Platforms – 11m and over – is a three-day training course for $495.

In this course, you will also gain a High Risk Work license, which not only aids you in acquiring a number of other qualifications but also opens you up to the possibility of a higher salary as a high risk work operator.
