Welcome to the Licence to erect, alter and dismantle scaffolding intermediate level (SI) Refresher / Verification of Competency (VOC) Training & Assessment. There are a large number of risks and dangers for anybody working with scaffold, even at a basic level. This VOC assessment course has been designed to give you an understanding of these risks and the system in place to help keep you safe. It also serves as an assessment for PCBU’s or business operators to ensure they are compliant with the WHS Act (or equivalent) in that operators of plant are competent.

This VOC is designed for those who are required to erect, alter and dismantle scaffolding  as part of their role. The aim of this VOC assessment is to ensure that you are competent when you are currently licenced to work with scaffold at the intermediate SI level.

Features of this refresher training include:

- Download a VOC Certificate on successful completion

- A Digital Wallet ID VOC Card is also issued once all your documentation is verified and you’ve been deemed competent by the assessor (see 'John Citizen' sample)

- Verification of competency by our RTO partner, AlertForce RTO Code 91826 and a Licenced High Risk Work Assessor.

This training and assessment program addresses three components of the erect, alter and dismantle scaffolding class licence at the SI level (all based upon the unit of competency standard set out in CPCCLSF3001A or superseded equivalent). The 3 verifications of competency include:

A. Knowledge or theoretical component (tested online with a mixture of critical and non-critical questions)

B. Calculations component (tested online with all required to be answered correctly)

C. Performance component (practical with access to relevant workplace plant and equipment)

The VOC assessment is based upon the intent of the Mandated National Assessment Instruments (NAI’s). However, it is important to note that this training & assessment does not give you the practical skills required to operate or apply for a High Risk Work Licence (HRWL) nor is it Nationally Recognised Statement of Attainment. This is to be used for VOC purposes only. To achieve initial accreditation or high risk licensing for the SI class, you must complete an in-person training session with an RTO and Trainer accredited to deliver CPCCLSF3001A training.

If you work with scaffold, many employers will want to ensure you are competent as, if not, you could endanger your safety and the safety of those around you or damaging costly plant and equipment.

This refresher / VOC course assesses the knowledge, calculations and performance components of CPCCLSF3001A Licence to erect, alter and dismantle scaffolding intermediate level (SI) and will provide you with information and assessment on:

  1. Plan job
  2. Select and inspect plant and equipment
  3. Set up the task
  4. Erect scaffold and scaffold equipment
  5. Dismantle scaffold and scaffold equipment

THIS IS NOT A NATIONALLY RECOGNISED COURSE - ONLY TO BE USED FOR REFRESHER / VOC PURPOSES IF YOU HAVE PREVIOUSLY ACHIEVED A STATEMENT OF ATTAINMENT in CPCCLSF3001A and/or hold a valid SI licence. 

Note: Whilst a Statement of Attainments do not expire, different worksites have different policies and requirements of what refresher training should be. You should check with your employer if you are unsure. This VOC assessment course is a Verification of Competency undertaken by a Registered Training Organisation (RTO Code 91826) and a High Risk Work Accredited Assessor with over 40 years experience.
