If you are deemed ‘Not Yet Competent’, you will have the option to sit a re-assessment within 60 days from the first assessment. There is a re-assessment fee of $150.00, and only one re-assessment is permitted. So we highly recommend that you study your learning material at least 3 weeks prior to the assessment.

Upon successful completion of our EWP course in Melbourne, your record of training is processed by the EWPA and you will receive an EWP Operator Licence with the proof of training and your photograph on the card.
An interim record of training from the EWPA will be emailed to you on the day of training and this can be used when operating machinery until you receive the yellow card. The EWP Operator Licence Yellow card will be processed and posted to your home address. Please let the EWPA know if you have not received your card within 60 days of training. After 60 days you will have to pay $30 for the card to be reissued, but if you let EWPA know within that time frame, they can reissue it free of charge.
