Short Course: Prepare To Work Safely In The Construction Industry (CPCCWHS1001)

What To Expect From This Course

CPCCWHS1001 is a unit of competency designed to educate individuals entering the construction industry on mandatory work health and safety protocols. Throughout the course, enrolled individuals must demonstrate their practical and theoretical knowledge of health and safety requirements and personal awareness. With this in mind, our crane training in Melbourne and beyond seeks to build safer workplaces for all.

Here are some of the topics to be covered in the Prepare To Work Safely In The Construction Industry course:

  • Identifying and orally reporting common construction hazards
  • Developing a working knowledge of basic risk control
  • Responding to incidents and emergencies on site
  • Proper use and fitting for personal protective equipment (PPEs)
  • Crane training in Melbourne and beyond

As a result of completing the Prepare To Work Safely In The Construction Industry (CPCCWHS1001) course, students will meet the following general construction training requirements:

  • Part 1.1 Definitions and Part 6.5 of the Model Work Health and Safety Regulations
  • Division 11 of Part 3 of the Occupational Safety and Health Regulations 1996 for Western Australia
  • Division 3 of Part 5.1 of the Occupational Health and Safety Regulations 2007 for Victoria

Please note that many construction sites conduct specialized training on top of the CPCCWHS1001. This may include site-specific orientation akin to our White Card Course.

How Long Does It Take?

Each short course only lasts one (1) session of six (6) hours. Like our Traffic Management Course, all training will be conducted at Novo Business Park -13/326 Settlement Road, Thomastown Vic 3074. Please refer to our training calendar for available times and dates.

Method Of Instruction

All sessions are conducted face-to-face to adequately demonstrate all practical health and safety requirements for working on a construction site.

In light of COVID-19, each batch of enrollees will be limited to 15 at a time. However, this may change based on the room’s size and capacity. Please note that all individuals and assessors are required to maintain social distancing rules and wear the appropriate protective gear throughout the entire course.

Course & Administration Fee

Individual learners are billed $125 each. This includes Worksafe fees, administration fees, and covers all course materials required for the session. Please settle all payments before course commencement.

  • Complete a Language, Literacy, and Numeracy Test

How We Assess Enrollees

Oral Recitation

All enrollees will be called for an oral recitation to demonstrate their understanding of the course’s target competency. Depending on the assessor, this may occur in the form of an interview or a few short questions.

Written Assessment

During the session, all individuals will be given a written assessment tool to serve as evidence of concrete learning. This test will include a mix of short answer questions, long answer questions, multiple-choice questions, and scenario-based questions (crane training for Melbourne, safety protocols for specific situations, etc.).

Observation Checklist

An assessor will observe each enrollee based on course-specific criteria. This demonstrates their competence against an assessment standard, which is helpful when identifying necessary and observable job skills.

Case Studies

Through case studies, students can generalize their theoretical knowledge into more practical use. Alongside the assessor and other students, each individual will be allowed to demonstrate their skill in a simulated environment.
