Course Overview

If you are looking to gain entry level work in the construction industry as a labourer or plant operator then having a dogman ticket is a desirable starting point. This dogging course delivers the skills and knowledge required to undertake Dogging work, using both hand and whistle signals, for the purpose of shifting loads mechanically.

During dogman training, operators are trained and assessed against the WHS Regulation 2011. Dogman training includes selecting sling types and sizes, determining safe work loads and maintaining the stability of the load, mathematical equations and hand/whistle signals. Participants are trained by qualified and experienced staff in both theory and practical aspects of Dogging while using a slewing mobile crane.
