EWP, EWP Training Course, Equip-Safe

High Risk Work Licence Class WP

Our Elevating Work Platform (EWP) training course will provide you with the knowledge and skills you will need to operate Elevating Work Platforms which extend to 11 metres or more.   Attain your WorkSafe High Risk Work Licence with Equip-Safe.  

Equip-Safe believe that people learn by ‘doing’.  We focus on training you on the EWP, and not just in the classroom. Courses are delivered at Equip-Safe’s training venue on the corner of Orrong Road and Kewdale Road in Welshpool.  Also, courses can be conducted on your site.   Please contact Equip-Safe for on-site pricing.

We use two EWPs during training.  Our classes have a maximum of 8 participants so that everyone can have sufficient time operating the two EWPs.  After attending our course, you are welcome to return and practice what you have learnt at no cost.  This would need to be organised to ensure the EWPs are not being used on a course.


One Day assessment only for experienced operators: $295.00
(Pre-requisites apply.  Pre-course reading and questionnaire to be completed prior to attending the session). 

* Please contact Equip-Safe for pre-requisites  for 1 day assessment only for experienced operators; or

Two Day training and assessment: $450.00

Plus High Risk Work Licence Fees:

WorkSafe High Risk Work Licence application fee:  $86.00.

Passport Photos for High-Risk Work Licence:  $20.00.
You are welcome to supply your own passport photo.  It must be no older than six months and passport size and quality.

Equip-Safe will send your application to WorkSafe. No charges or fees will apply for this service.  You have nothing more to do after you finish the course. An interim High Risk Work Licence will be issued upon successful completion of the course which will allow you to operate an Elevating Work Platform over 11 metres from that date.


EWP courses are scheduled regularly at Equip-Safe’s Perth training venue in Welshpool on the corner of Orrong Road and Kewdale Road or can be conducted on the client’s premises.
