Licence to operate
boom-type Elevated work platform

Training Program


This unit specifies the outcomes required to operate a boom-type elevating work platform (boom length 11 metres or more) for licensing purposes, and involves the operation of a telescopic device, hinged device, or articulated device or any combination of these used to support a platform on which personnel, equipment and materials can be elevated to perform work. The 11 metre boom length shall be taken to mean the greater of the following:

  • The vertical distance from the floor to the platform to the surface supporting the elevating work platform with the platform at its maximum height; or
  • The nominal reach, measured horizontally from the centre point of rotation to the outer edge of the platform in its most extended position.
