TLI Mobile Crane Operations

Project Scope

This project will review the TLI30121 Certificate III in Mobile Crane Operations and TLI40721 Certificate IV in Mobile Crane Operations, associated Units of Competency and update imported units. This is to ensure the skills and knowledge requirements contained in the qualifications address changes in technology, transport related activity risk factors and regulations associated with the role of a mobile crane operator.

 

Given the growing use of mobile cranes and the variety of usage in heavily populated areas, safety of the operators and the public is critical.

 

Mobile Crane Operations are used across multiple sectors of many industries. Workers need to be skilled heavy vehicle operators as they drive mobile cranes on Australian roads in accordance with state and territory regulatory requirements. They also need to have the appropriate High risk Work licence to operate the specific crane along with a variety of other skills to meet the needs of the crane industry.

TAC ESTABLISHED

 

The Transport and Logistics Industry Reference Committee has established a Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) for this Mobile Crane Operations project.  

 

Comprising 12 of subject matter experts from Industry, RTOs, regulators, and peak bodies, the TAC has been tasked with: 

  • Providing specialist industry subject-matter knowledge for the Mobile Crane Operations project  in the review of Units of Competency and Qualifications 
  • Validating the technical content of the Training Package products 
  • Identifying relevant qualitative and quantitative data sources to inform the development of draft materials 
  • Reviewing feedback from stakeholders through public consultations 
  • Assisting in identifying and engaging broader industry networks to participate in consultation and/or validation activities during the duration of the project 
  • Offering advice and guidance to assist in informing the direction of the project throughout its duration. 
  • Making recommendations on the developed Training Package materials to the relevant IRC, which has the final decision-making authority 

 

The first meeting of the TAC is scheduled for 31 January 2022.

SUBJECT MATTER EXPERTS NEEDED

 

Work on this project has commenced and the Transport and Logistics IRC is forming a TAC.

 

This project will follow on from the HRWL project and is to review the TLI30121 Certificate III in Mobile Crane Operations and TLI40721 Certificate IV in Mobile Crane Operations, review associated Units of Competency and update imported units. This is to ensure the skills and knowledge requirements contained in the qualifications address changes in technology, transport related activity risk factors and regulations associated with the role of mobile crane operator.

 

This project has timelines constrains so the first Technical Advisory Committee meeting has been scheduled for 31 January 2022.

 

Registrations to become a TAC member closed 25 January 2022.

Consultation

25 MARCH 2022

DRAFT MATERIAL

 

On behalf of the Transport and Logistics Industry Reference Committee, its Technical Advisory Committee has drafted Training Package materials for the Mobile Crane Operations project, including updates of two qualifications and seven Units of Competency, and would like your feedback.

 

The Certificate III and Certificate IV in Mobile Crane Operations and associated Units of Competency have been revised, and updated imported units to address changes in technology, transport related activity risk factors and regulations associated with the role of a mobile crane operator.
