Course Description
This course covers all the requirements for obtaining a national High Risk Work Licence (Class C2) for slewing mobile cranes with a lifting capacity of up to 20 tonnes.

Successfully completing this course will allow you to operate any mobile cranes (up to 20t), any non-slewing crane (such as telehandlers or Franna cranes) and vehicle loading cranes (such as Hiab’s and Palfinger’s) within Australia.
Until further notice from SafeWork NSW (previously WorkCover NSW), C2 will also cover the licencing requirements for a Reach Stacker.
This course does not cover the requirements for slewing mobile cranes over 20t. A High Risk Work Licence (Class C6, C1 or CO) is required for this type of slewing mobile crane.

There are no prerequisites for this course.

Dear Phil
As you know, I recently attended WTC for my C2 course and I just wanted to say a big thank you to you all. Absolutely everything from the initial enquiry to the end of the assessment was not only enjoyable and fun but also very professional and accommodating in every way possible. The location is easy to get to and the shops being across the road is ideal.

A huge thank you to Colin, the trainer who made learning so much easier and explained everything very thoroughly and was always checking we were comfortable with how things were going and was more than happy to offer his time and help when it was needed.
He is extremely experienced in his field and a pleasure to work with. A valuable asset to the business.
Thanks again and kind regards,
Rob, Transcrane.
