CPCCCM3001 - Operate Elevated Work Platforms Up to 11 Metres

This unit of competency specifies the outcomes required to operate specific types of elevated work platforms (EWPs) safely and effectively in different locations, including on uneven terrain. The unit includes locating, setting up, operating and shutting down scissor lifts and self-propelled boom lifts with a boom length under 11 metres.

The unit supports construction workers in the safe and effective operation of electrical, hydraulic and mechanical EWPs.

The unit does not cover truck-mounted EWPs, powered telescoping devices, hinged devices or articulated devices, or any combination of these used to support a platform on which personnel, equipment and materials may be elevated to perform work and which has a boom length of 11 metres or more.

Please note this is not a high risk work licence.  If your occupation requires you to operate a boom-type EWP with a nominal reach over 11 metres, please enrol in TLILIC0005 – Licence to operate a boom-type elevating work platform (boom length 11 metres or more).

Elevating Work Platform Course FAQs


Who should attend?

This course is for anyone operating an Elevating Work Platform (EWP) under 11 metres in length in Australia.

EWPs are used for many tasks around the workplace, from maintenance and electrical work to accessing rooftops and cleaning gutters. Therefore, anyone engaged in these forms of work can benefit from this training. Our course covers EWPs such as telescoping devices, hinged devices, articulated devices, or a combination of these used to support a platform from which personnel, equipment or materials can be elevated to perform work.


What will you learn?

Our training provides participants with the skills and knowledge to operate an EWP safely. This includes:

  • Planning and preparing for work tasks
  • Selecting the correct EWP for individual jobs
  • Routinely checking elements and pre-operational checks
  • Conducting risk assessment and implementing control measures
  • Conducting routine checks of equipment
  • Operating an elevating work platform
  • Using emergency decent equipment
  • Properly shutting down and securing the work platform

The program involves a combination of practical and theory-based learning in a face-to-face environment.


Is a boom-type EWP licence mandatory?

Under WorkSafe requirements, a person performing any work on an EWP up to or below 11m is required to hold an elevating work platform High-Risk Work Licence (HRWL).

The CPCCCM3001 – Operate Elevated Work Platforms Up to 11 Metres unit of competency is nationally accredited training accepted all across Australia.

This certification enables you to access work sites and conduct work in all states where the operation of an EWP under the length of 11m is required.
