This course may lead to employment in a number of industries and workplaces that require personnel to operate erect scaffolding at the intermediate level.

RPL is a form of assessment that acknowledges skills and knowledge gained through:
- Formal training conducted by industry or education
- Work experience
- Life experience
The main principle of RPL focuses on the outcomes of learning rather than when or where the learning occurred. Students must submit evidence of competency to the nominated assessor, and an assessment will be made based on the required industry standard. If you believe this may apply to you for any part of the course, then you should request an application kit during the enrolment process.
Please be aware that successful completion of the National Assessment Instrument for the licence class will also be required prior to WorkSafe issuing a high risk work licence.
We are responsible for the quality of the training and assessment in compliance with the Standards for RTOs 2015, and for the issuance of the AQF certification documentation.
