Hi Everyone,

I wanted to reach out to let you know that the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has updated its website to permit training and assessment for high risk work licences. As a result, we will be opening a small number of courses for enrolments per below:

Over 11m Boomlift Licence Courses (WP)

  • Thursday 3rd to Friday 4th September
  • Thursday 10th to Friday 11th September

Forklift Licence Courses (LF)

  • Thursday 3rd to Friday 4th September
  • Thursday 10th to Friday 11th September

Dogging Licence Course (DG)

  • Monday 7th to Friday 11th September

Applicants who apply to enrol into the courses listed above will be required to provide evidence of having a Permitted Worker Permit covering their attendance at training. To make a booking into one of these courses, please click on the relevant hyperlink above.

Critical Training for All Other Courses

We continue to offer all of our courses for sessional/group bookings for businesses which require training necessary for the construction of critical and essential infrastructure and services to support these projects, and other construction in line with restrictions. Examples include critical training to facilitate the completion of major projects such as (but not limited to) the Westgate Tunnel Project and Level Crossing Removal Project. To enquire, simply click here.

I hope everyone is doing as well as can be expected during these times. Whilst it’s reassuring to see daily COVID numbers in Melbourne dropping into the one-hundreds, I can’t help but remember how worrying it was to initially be seeing triple digits.

Train safe. Work safe. Home safe.

Kind Regards,


Aaron Monaghan
