Excavation Licence

25 Jul Excavation Licence

Excavation licensing covers the removal of earth or rock to previously determined excavation lines and levels to form a hole or trench for structural supports or for walls and/or floors of a building and/or structural landscaping work.

If you have experience as an excavator including experience running different excavation plants then you’re pretty much set to pick up your qualification. Generally speaking a Certificate III in Civil Construction Plant Operations meets the qualification requirements for an excavation licence.

What's involved?

1. Free Skills Assessment

You need to have valid industry experience in order to qualify for this RPL program. When you first touch base, we will help you identify your skills and advise on whether this qualification is right for you. As a rule of thumb if you have more than 2 years experience in your field, then you are likely to be eligible.

2. Evidence Portfolio
  • Valid Identification
  • list showing relevant employment history
  • work documents (invoices, quotations, plans, sketches etc)
  • letter of employment
  • reference letters from qualified tradesmen
  • photos and videos of you working
  • related licenses, short courses, accreditation, certificates, transcripts or assessments you have attained
3. Skills Check
  1. You will be having a conversation covering questions for each unit with our qualified assessor
  2. The assessor will perform a practical observation to ensure safe use of the plants you use
  3. Where gap training is required, you will need to complete theory or practical assessments as required. Theory components can be completed from home and practical components can be completed at your work site.
4. Qualified!

All certificates are Nationally Recognised and issued by a Qualify Me! partner college. Now you can grab that licence!
