Completed my C6 with the boys. Was a great experience being trained by people who you can tell have actually been in the industry. The training criteria was presented really well which made it easy to follow and remember. The revision that I was given definitely made the difference on assessment day. 5 stars boys thanks again, see you when I need another ticket, upgrade or even just a refresher.

In the 8 years I have attended various training courses around Newcastle region, Brayden and his team are by far the best trainers I have come across. Sensitive to your learning style and go the extra mile to make sure you understand and are comfortable with what you are learning. Recommend highly 💪

TLILIC0023 Course Information

C6 Crane Ticket Application

This unit specifies the skills and knowledge required to safely operate slewing mobile cranes with a Maximum Rated Capacity (MRC) up to 60 tonnes in accordance with all relevant legislative responsibilities. 

Competence in this unit, does not in itself result in a High-Risk Work Licence (HRWL) to operate this plant.

Slewing mobile crane means mobile crane incorporating a boom or jib that can be slewed, but does not include a front-end loader, backhoe, 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 up to 60 tonnes High-Risk Work Licence.

This unit requires a person operating a slewing mobile crane to:

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