My Boom over 11m licence has expired, how do I renew it?


What if my Boom over 11m licence has expired? If your High Risk Work licence has already expired, you aren't licensed to operate a Boom over 11m. If you apply for a renewal after the expiry date, you won't be licensed until your application is approved. How do I renew my Boom over 11m ticket? High Risk Work (HRW) licences like the EWP Boom over 11m licence, are issued by the Queensland Government (after you have completed your training with an RTO). If your licence is about to expire, you should receive a renewal notice 4-6 weeks before the expiry date. If you renew your High Risk Work licence before the expiry date, your licence will remain current during the application process. Visit Queensland Government's High Risk Work Licence Online Services to renew your High Risk Work licence.




Is my Forklift Licence up to date?

What if I don't have time to attend a training course?


The law requires that operators of plant equipment must undergo activity-based instruction and training, and that verbal instruction alone is not sufficient because it lacks written proof of competency evidence. To meet this legal obligation, and ensure that you are staying safe, it is important to make time to attend the relevant training. HiReach Training makes this easier for you, by offering a range of combined courses, saving on training time and saving you money. Check our Combined Courses




What if my Yellow Card has expired, how do I renew it?


If your EWPA Yellow Card has already expired you can not operate an EWP. You can renew your card within 6 months of the expiry date on the licence, by completing an online renewal which costs $50. The Yellow Card renewal requires you to complete a declaration followed by a series of questions that will verify your knowledge and operation of EWPs. You should receive a reminder from the Elevating Work Platform Association of Australia (EWPA) before your card expired, with a link to the renewal. If your contact details have changed, update them with the EWPA. If you do not renew within 6 months of expiry you will have to do the EWPA Yellow Card course again. If you need to re-do the Yellow Card course, HiReach Training provides EWPA Yellow Card Courses for as little as $25 if you are eligible for funding subsidies. Find out more.




What if I've already done a ticket a couple of years ago?


You don't want to be caught out without an up to date licence, so you should check the expectations of the job site before starting work. Most employers and work sites expect your tickets to be under 2 years old. If you need to re-do a ticket take a look at our range of training courses, or do a VOC check out our Verification of Competency information.
