How does it work?

The online working at heights course is typically completed within 1 hour but can be spaced over a period of time to meet the scheduling requirements of the individual.

The practical component is completed in approximately 3.5 hours. The training can be conducted in a Protector Alsafe training centre or at a customer’s site if a suitable practical location can be provided.

The content has been mapped to provide a theoretical base for the following nationally recognised Units of Competency:

  • RIIWHS204D - Work Safely at Heights

To receive the Nationally Recognised Unit of Competency the learner must enrol and complete the practical component within 4 week of completing the online theory. Once the appropriate practical training has been completed, and the learner assessed as competent, a Statement of Attainment for the relevant unit can be issued.

Learners who only complete the online component will receive a Certificate of Completion.

The content of the online training course is continually reviewed for industry relevancy and updated as required.

Step by Step

  1. Learners successfully complete the online learning session.
  2. Students must print their Certificate of Completion and provide this to the Trainer prior to commencing the practical session. Failure to bring the Certificate of Completion may result in Learners not being able to complete the practical session. A full course fee will still apply.
  3. Practical sessions take approximately 3.5 hours and can be conducted in a Protector Alsafe training centre or on a customer’s site if suitable.
  4. If the theory and practical components are both completed at a competent level, then a Statement of Attainment will be issued to the Learner.
