High Risk Work Licenses

The National Licensing Standard requires people performing high risk work to hold a
National Licence.

This involves first receiving a statement of competency at the successful completion of a training course for the relevant license, having been assessed by a WorkSafe accredited assessor. You would then make application to Woksafe WA to receive a high risk license relevant to your training. There is a WorkSafe WA fee of $82.00* per application, per stream, for high risk licenses. Your trainer/assessor will discuss this process with you during
your training. More information can be found regarding high-risk licenses at WorkSafe WA by clicking here.

Applicants for a high risk license are required to be a minimum of 18 years of age. You will require two (2) forms of identification (including a drivers license, or passport) on the day that you start your course.
