EWP, EWP Training Course, Equip-Safe


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 in the classroom. Courses are scheduled weekly at Equip-Safe’s training venue on the corner of Orrong Road and Pilbara in Welshpool.  Saturday courses are available by request.  Also courses can be conducted on your site.   Please contact Equip-Safe for on-site pricing.

We use three EWP during training.  Our classes have a maximum of 8 participants so that everyone can have sufficient time operating the three EWP.  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 EWP are not being used on a course.


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

Two Day Elevating Work Platform training and assessment: $450.00

Worksafe High Risk Licence application fee:  $86.00
(If you already hold a High Risk Licence for another class then the application fee is $43.00)

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

Equip-Safe will send your application to Worksafe. You have nothing more to do after you finish the course. No charges or fees will apply for this service. 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  from that date.


EWP courses are scheduled weekly 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.
