Industry Training Qld (Provider No. 30477) offers RIIMPO318F Conduct Civil Construction Skid Steer Loader Operations

This course is a competency based training program that allows students to complete both the formal and informal requirements of the licence all at Industry Training Qld’s training facility or your workplace by prior arrangement. Students are required to be trained to a level suitable to achieve all elements necessary to satisfy the mandatory Workplace Health & Safety Qld assessment.

The course fees include Training, Learner’s Guide, Log Book which incorporates the Training Plan, Written and Practical Assessments, and the Workplace Health and Safety Licence (fees and application done by ITQ on your behalf).

The Skid Steer course is competency based, consisting of nominal hours of training—i.e. enough hours for you to become competent; however the total time is solely dependant upon each student’s abilities.

Informal training is now based on set tasks determined by the trainer assessor, and based on demonstrated skills. Some participants may complete courses earlier than others. There are no additional fees or discounts on fees should you need more or less time than others.

Your course fees that you paid to Industry Training Qld include the fees for the licence. We will process the application on your behalf and will forward the relevant fees and information to Workplace Health and Safety Qld, who will then post you your plastic licence card.

  • Students must be at least 18 years of age.
  • Literacy skills to read and write basic English standard.
  • Provision and use of basic PPE (enclosed boots, ‘high vis’ vest, hat etc)

Prior to any practical operation of a machine the student MUST have completed a Formal Training course for the chosen machine.

This course is designed for those students who wish to complete the mandatory informal training on the job or at their current employment utilising a training log book.

Employers must agree to this and have a ticketed “immediate supervisor” to supervise the training and fill in all relevant areas of student’s training record book (logbook). Students are required to complete a formal training course that covers the ‘classroom’ training that covers WH&S Qld legislative requirements, relevant video presentations and verbal/practical demonstration and instruction of all the elements from the mandated WH&S Qld assessment.

This can also include the written exam if desired. Learner’s Guides are available for purchase through our office, we suggest you obtain yours as early as possible to allow you to be familiar with the information prior to your course commencing.

The student must be an experienced and competent operator after having completed workplace supervised training. After completion of formal training, students at their workplace must log hours and tasks performed at work and this must all be signed off by their ‘immediate supervisor’ who holds the relevant Workplace Health and Safety Qld licence.

Once the supervisor has determined the skill and knowledge level of the student is at a competent level, a final assessment can be conducted by an accredited trainer/assessor. The assessment consists of a closed book theory component (which can have been completed at formal training) as well as a comprehensive practical challenge test.

Workplace Health and Safety Qld does not allow full RPL of load-shifting licences, all students MUST complete the theory and practical components of the assessment process. However if you can provide suitable documented evidence of prior use of the machinery involved, you may be able to use that evidence to modify the training needed to achieve competency.

Licences from overseas jurisdictions are not recognised for full RPL, the assessment process must still occur. Please discuss your individual circumstances with our Training Co-ordinator.
