Course Description

TLILIC4009 – Licence to operate a slewing mobile crane (up to 60 tonnes)
High Risk Work Licence (C6)

This course covers all the requirements for obtaining a national High Risk Work Licence (Class C6) for slewing mobile cranes with a lifting capacity of up to 60 tonnes.

Successfully completing this course will allow you to operate any mobile cranes (up to 60t), 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), C6 will also cover the licencing requirements for a Reach Stacker.
This course does not cover the requirements for slewing mobile cranes over 60t. A High Risk Work Licence (Class C1 or CO) is required for this type of slewing mobile crane.


Total duration is 5 days. Training is over four full days and SafeWork NSW assessment is conducted on the fifth day.
