Course Description:

This course specifies the skills and knowledge required to safely operate a slewing mobile crane with a maximum rated capacity (MRC) over 100 tonnes, in accordance with all relevant legislative responsibilities. Slewing mobile crane means a mobile crane incorporating a boom or jib that can be slewed, but does not include:

  • A front-end loader or
  • A backhoe or
  • An excavator or
  • Other earth moving equipment, when configured for crane operation

This unit specifies the skills and knowledge required to safely operate a slewing mobile crane with a maximum rated capacity (MRC) over 100 tonnes, in accordance with all relevant legislative responsibilities. Competence in this unit, does not in itself result in a High Risk Work Licence (HRWL) to operate this plant.
