This is how all training should be done. Highly efficient with small classes and a relaxed training environment. The trainers Bradyn and Finisi are extremely knowledgeable with a great attitude and teaching style, able to keep things flowing while ensuring no one gets left behind. The facilities and gear are excellent, really well set up. Anasani made the Bookings/ payments stress free ! One of the best RTO's I've trained at! Thanks again

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 💪

Overview of Dogman Ticket Training Course

First Choice Training Solutions is a RTO approved training centre that provides nationally recognised training programs, such as the CPCCLDG3001A – licence to perform dogging. Dedicated to developing mindsets beyond what is expected from regular training courses, we prepare any future licence holder to perform high risk work safely, whether that is by being a crane operator, using lifting gear or basic rigging.

After successful completion of the high risk work licence CPCCLDG3001A the student will be able to use their dogging licence throughout the construction industry to legally start lifting equipment safely.

First Choice Training Solutions is a registered training organisation that is adaptable and flexible, utilising a direct experience learning model focused on mentoring and quality control to create a unique and efficient learning experience. Our team of accredited trainers are experts and ensure quality training to assist students in successfully completing our courses, offering onsite training and assessing.

Licence to Perform Dogging Course Information

This unit specifies the skills and knowledge required to safely perform dogging work. Dogging consists of the application of slinging techniques to move a load, including the selection and inspection of lifting gear, and the directing of a plant operator in the movement of a load when the load is out of sight of the operator.

Dogging work is conducted in the construction industry and other industries where loads are lifted and moved using cranes or hoists.

Completion of the general construction induction training program, specified in the Safe Work Australia model Code of Practice: Construction Work, is required by anyone carrying out construction work. Achievement of CPCCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction industry meets this requirement.

Competence in this unit does not in itself result in a licence. A licence is obtained after competence is assessed under applicable Commonwealth, state or territory work health and safety (WHS) regulations.

To demonstrate competency in this unit, a candidate must meet the elements and performance criteria by slinging and directing the movement of at least five loads of differing shapes, sizes and weights.

The loads must be moved by a slewing mobile crane of a maximum rated capacity of at least seven tonnes.

The candidate must:

  • check relevant workplace information, including safe work method statements (SWMSs), and equipment service and maintenance records and checklists
  • perform all activities in compliance with safe work practices and workplace-specific procedures and policies, and check, use, maintain and store equipment in compliance with manufacturer requirements
  • identify hazards and use appropriate risk controls and safety measures and equipment
  • determine load weight and travel path in consultation with crane operator
  • select and inspect appropriate lifting gear and apply slinging techniques appropriate to the type of load, its mass and centre of gravity
  • identify the working load limit (WLL) tags of the lifting equipment and gear and calculate the deration of the WLL resulting from the slinging techniques applied
  • make temporary connections to loads using fibre or synthetic ropes
  • use radio communication and hand and whistle signals to guide the crane operator, including when the load is out of sight of the crane operator.

The candidate must use the following bends and hitches when slinging and directing the movement of loads:

  • single sheet bend
  • clove hitch
  • rolling hitch
  • bowline.

Load types must include:

  • stillage containing at least ten scaffolding standards or loose steel pipes of 200 kg or more
  • ten loose steel pipes, of at least 2 m length, that need wrapping
  • an uneven load of at least two tonnes requiring slinging
  • steel plate of at least 1.5 m x 2 m x 25 mm
  • a round load with a minimum diameter of 300 mm and minimum length of 3 m.

The candidate must direct each load through at least 180 degrees of the crane’s slewing radius.

Each of the following must be used at least once:

  • flexible steel wire rope (FSWR) sling
  • synthetic sling
  • chain sling (including shortener)
  • spreader bar or lifting beam
  • tag line
  • shackles
  • eyebolts
  • plate clamps.

To be competent in this unit, a candidate must demonstrate knowledge of:

  • safe work requirements for dogging under Commonwealth and state or territory work health and safety (WHS) legislation, standards and codes of practice
  • workplace information, including legislative requirements covered by:
    • SWMSs
    • permits and certifications
    • information about equipment:
      • service and maintenance checklists and records
      • manufacturer specifications and manuals
    • workplace procedures, including emergency plans and incident reporting
  • hazard identification and mitigation strategies, including the hierarchy of control:
    • elimination
    • substitution
    • isolation
    • engineering controls
    • administrative controls
    • use of personal protective equipment (PPE)
  • hazards commonly encountered in dogging:
    • instability of landing surfaces
    • overhead and underground hazards
    • insufficient lighting
    • traffic
    • weather
    • pedestrian traffic
    • work at heights
  • risk controls and equipment:
    • traffic management plan
    • traffic barricades and control
    • exclusion zones
    • pedestrian barricades
    • PPE
    • lights
    • fall prevention and fall arrest equipment
  • PPE:
    • hard hat
    • safety boots
    • gloves
    • high-visibility clothing
    • breathing, hearing, sight and skin and sun protection
  • hand, whistle and two-way radio communication, including signals for:
    • stop
    • hoist up and down
    • luff boom up and down
    • telescope in and out
    • slew left and right
  • selection, inspection, care, handling, application, limitations and storage of dogging equipment and gear:
    • FSWR sling
    • synthetic sling
    • chain sling (including shortener)
    • spreader bar or lifting beam
    • tag line
    • shackles
    • eyebolts
    • plate clamps
  • slinging techniques
  • load destination stability, load capacity and safe access for walking and unpacking the load:
    • ground
    • loading platforms
    • suspended floors
    • vehicles
  • mathematical processes for calculating deration of WLL of lifting equipment and gear due to slinging techniques
  • methods of making temporary connections to loads using fibre and synthetic ropes:
    • single sheet bend
    • clove hitch
    • rolling hitch
    • bowline.

Assessors must meet the requirements for assessors outlined in the Standards for Registered Training Organisations.

Only assessors who are accredited in the licence class by the appropriate WHS regulator for the jurisdiction governing the licence are permitted to conduct the final high-risk work licence assessment. The final licence assessment will only be undertaken with candidates who have completed training and been formally assessed against all elements in this unit.

Assessment must be conducted in the workplace or in a simulated workplace environment using realistic workplace conditions, materials, activities, responsibilities, procedures, safety requirements and environmental considerations, including:

  • the use of full-scale, industry-standard equipment, not simulators
  • performance of tasks within the timelines expected in a workplace.

Candidates must have access to:

  • a slewing mobile crane of at least seven tonnes maximum rated capacity, and lifting equipment and gear in a safe and compliant condition
  • loads and equipment required to perform the tasks specified in the Performance Evidence
  • a licensed crane operator to undertake lifting activity
  • workplace information and records, including:
    • equipment and maintenance checklists
    • record system for service and maintenance history
    • incident reports
    • workplace procedures, including emergency plan
    • equipment manuals and manufacturer specifications.
