Qld Licence Requirements

Vehicle loading crane operators are required to hold a CV Class High Risk Work Licence (HRWL) to operate a VLC in the workplace.

A vehicle loading crane licence is required by, and suitable for, those working in operation roles where they are required to operate a VLC within the civil, construction, infrastructre or resources industries.

All users, trainees and operators are required to hold a relevant certificate of competency unless they are undergoing supervised accredited training and have the necessary health and fitness required to safely operate a VLC.

Learning Methods

ASTRA use various assessment methods and techniques, including skill and knowledge assessments as an essential step to ensure you progress through your course. You may be assessed in a number of ways while you are studying and training with ASTRA, including observation, written assessment, questioning, portfolios, work samples, third-party feedback, and in some cases through recognition of prior learning.

Before commencing any course, ASTRA recommends you consult your doctor to determine any limitations with conducting practical demonstrations if applicable. There may be multiple tasks that require manual handling of materials and equipment and general exposure to accessing and working on structures at height.
