Vehicle-mounted crane operation
Confirming competent operation of a truck-mounted loading crane is essential for duty of care and risk management in the workplace.
A vehicle-mounted loading crane is defined as a crane mounted on a vehicle for the principal purpose of loading and unloading the vehicle.
Employers and contractors can access assessment against TLID0012 Operate a vehicle-mounted loading crane. This unit covers the skills and knowledge required to operate a vehicle-mounted loading crane to shift loads with a capacity of less than 10 metre tonnes.
HRD offers this unit of competency as assessment-only in the workplace. Training is not provided.
Skills and knowledge assessed
Skills and knowledge covered in the assessment include:
- positioning and stabilising a vehicle-mounted crane
- operating the crane and monitoring lift conditions
- packing up the crane after operations
- completing required workplace records.
Personnel wishing to undertake assessment in the operation of a vehicle-mounted loading crane need:
- the ability to use and understand basic English
- a basic knowledge of Math
- to be a minimum of 18 years of age.
In addition, assessment for this unit of competency requires that you know and can demonstrate the application of load estimation and slinging techniques to move a load.
Assessment candidates may, therefore, find it useful to have completed dogman training prior to assessment.
Assessment includes a theory component and practical demonstration of skills and knowledge.
A candidate is expected to complete 3 lifts of different load masses in a maximum of 4 hours.
A nationally recognised Statement of Attainment for TLID0012 Operate a vehicle-mounted loading crane will be issued on successful demonstration of competence.
Recognition of prior learning is available.
Candidates seeking RPL will be asked to demonstrate their skills by lifting at least one load and provide valid supporting workplace documents.
