What is a tower crane?

A tower crane is a piece of heavy-duty lifting equipment that's used to lift and place large and small, even oversized objects. As a tower crane operator, you'll maneuver these machines and check to make sure they function properly by moving levers and pushing pedals. You'll typically be working at construction sites, iron or steel mills or ports, which are hazardous by nature, and it's important to ensure that safety is maintained at all times. Full-time work is available, and sometimes you'll work long shifts and overtime hours in this field.

This course aims to impart the skills and knowledge required to be found competent for the unit of competency CPCCLTC4001A Licence to operate a tower crane and to meet the needs for a National High Risk Licence for Operating a tower crane (CT Licence).

 

This course will cover the following areas:

  • Planning the work
  • Conducting routine checks
  • Transferring the load
  • Shutting down the and securing the crane

The above unit is nationally recognised and can only be delivered by a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) that complies with the governing standards of quality control and quality training and assessment. 

Upon successful completion of this course you will be awarded a Statement of Attainment for the Nationally Recognised unit CPCCLTC4001A Licence to operate a tower crane.  The course has a nominal duration of 5 days total. $2,100.00 or read 'Payments' page below for more pricing options.

Training course has a nominal duration of 5 consecutive days including the assessment. The course can also be delivered in intervals or online (theory part only).
