Plant and Machinery RII Tickets

Our Plant and Machinery licensing courses will provide you with the required knowledge and practical skills to operate heavy machinery safely and efficiently.

Although it it’s no longer a requirement of Safe Work Australia to hold a ticket for Heavy machinery, most Employers, Contractors or PCBU’s will still require you to have had some form of training before you can operate heavy machinery on most job sites.

If you are an employer or contractor looking to enrol multiple staff or large groups of students please contact us directly.

VOC (Verification of Competency)

VOC is a term that is widely used across the Civil Construction/Infrastructure industries and refers to a method of assessment undertaken by employees and contractors currently employed in the industry to validate their skills and knowledge of machine operations.


Anyone can conduct a VOC and the levels of assessment can change dramatically depending on who is conducting your VOC. Typically a VOC can be completed in two to three hours and involves an individual witnessing you operate a machine on your jobsite.


Our trainers and assessors have a combined 75 years experiences across the Civil Construction, Trenchless Technology and Infrastructure industries and all hold up to date accredited Training and Assessment qualifications.


Our VOC consists of a theory and practical component which can be completed on site at our training facility or at your current jobsite.
We are currently offering VOCs for the following machinery

  • Horizontal Directional Drilling – $ 495.00
  • Excavator $595.00
