Course Details

Licence to perform basic rigging and dogging



Dogging is, for the purpose of licensing, defined as applying slinging techniques, including selecting and/or inspecting lifting gear and/or directing the crane operator when the load is in and out of direct view.

Rigging is completed in three different stages. Basic, intermediate and advanced. Each level is a prerequisite for the next. In this course, you will complete the basic rigging training.

Completion of the basic rigging unit allows you to perform work associated with the movement of plant and equipment, steel erections, hoists (including mast climbing hoists), placement of pre-cast concrete (also known as tilt panels), safety nets and static lines, perimeter safety screens and shutters and cantilevered crane loading platforms.

Participants must successfully complete all assessments for the unit CPCCLDG3001A – Licence to perform dogging before progressing onto the 2nd unit of this course CPCCLRG3001A – Licence to perform rigging basic level
