We can deliver all courses onsite where the appropriate equipment and environment is suitable. This includes high risk and machinery/plant such as those listed below but not limited to. 

DTE can provide Verification of Competency (VOC) and an assessment only (RPL) pathway for the experienced individual/operator.

Additional to training and assessment solutions, Down to Earth Training & Assessing also offer verifications of competency (VOC’s) that can be conducted both on site or at our premises.

VOC’s are often required by an employer/client to verify a candidate’s skills, knowledge and experience on the nominated machinery/ticket before commencing work on site. In order for a VOC to be conducted, the candidate must hold a valid and current ticket/statement of attainment in the unit of competency they are being VOC’d on. If they do not, the candidate must complete an assessment first and be issued with the ticket/statement of attainment prior to the VOC being conducted.

A VOC requires that both a theory and practical assessment must be carried out successfully by the candidate in order for them to be deemed competent. A competent candidate will receive an interim VOC slip on the day (to commence work), and be issued a VOC card once full payment has been made for the work carried out. 

So, whether you work with cranes, elevating work platforms or forklift to working at heights or traffic management/control we are able to come to your worksite to deliver and/or assess.
