Training for a high risk work licence

Required training

You must complete the relevant unit of competency for the class of high risk work you require a licence for.

This training must be provided by a registered training organisation (RTO). Training in the workplace is not allowed until you are formally enrolled with a RTO.

The RTO must verify your identity, date of birth, signature and current address. All documents must contain your name in full, not just the initials, and copies will not be accepted. See Evidence of identity.

After your training

Once you have completed your training, you must demonstrate that you are competent. To do this, you will be assessed by an accredited assessor using the national assessment instrument for that class of high risk work.

When found competent, you will be issued an Assessment Summary and Interim Licence. There will be two copies issued:

  • a pink copy, which you keep as an interim licence
  • a white copy, which will be attached to your application when lodging at Service Tasmania.

An interim licence is only valid for 60 days so you will need to go to Service Tasmania before the 60 day expiry.

Find an RTO

Only registered training organisations listed on the national VET register and those that have the relevant unit of competency can deliver this training. To find an RTO you will need to visit training.gov.au (external link).
