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.

Course Outcomes

On successful completion of training and assessment, participants will receive a Statement of Attainment – CPCCLDG3001A Licence to Perform Dogging and a National Licence to Perform High Risk Work (Class DG). This also completes the pre-requisite for progressing to CPCCLRG3001A Licence to Perform Rigging – Basic Level.

HRW Licences are valid for 5 years from the date of issue. To apply for your HRW licence, you must lodge your HRW assessment paperwork and application form at an Australia Post outlet together with a passport sized photo and pay the prescribed  processing fee within 60 days of completion of your final HRW assessment. Failure to lodge your paperwork on time will result in you being an unlicensed operator and further training and/or assessing fees will apply after the 60-day period.
