Training and WorkCover Assessments

WorkCover Assessments.

The following explains Assessment criteria and what a Trainee needs to know and provide to undertake Training and Assessment on any machine that requires a WorkCover licence.

Training and Workcover Assessments cannot be conducted by the same person (by law). To make this process as easy as possible for the Employer and the Trainee, Earthworks will provide a Training course through a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) which normally involves 2 days training with the assessment to follow within the next few days. The Assessment can take up to 2 hours along with the practical component taking 1 hour. We will also provide the Assessor on the day. 

WorkCover requires 48 hours notice before any Assessments can take place. This is organised by the RTO after the training has taken place. and ageed with the trainee. It is advisable to give us a call or email prior to wanting to sit an Assessment. This will allow enough time for WorkCover notifications.

We are able to provide oral Assessments for persons with reading and writing difficulties. The assessor will ask the questions and record your responses. This is quite common and there is no need to be embarrassed. You will need to make the Assessor aware of this in advance as it is required to be stated on the WorkCover notification.
