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.
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:
The candidate must use the following bends and hitches when slinging and directing the movement of loads:
Load types must include:
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:
To be competent in this unit, a candidate must demonstrate knowledge of:
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:
Candidates must have access to:
Many of our training courses specifically target the high-risk work industry, specialising in the training assessment process for high-risk work licences – particularly in the Craneage and Rigging trades.
Our team of instructors possess a wealth of experience in both trades and – through practical, hands-on learning and professional mentorship – will assist you to recognise and work to Safe Work Australia and SafeWork NSW guidelines, requirements and regulations, NSW legislation, and industry standards.
Our team are here to help – call the office between 9am – 5pm or enquire through email and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
