What do I need to know before my training?

You will be required to bring:

  • Appropriate work attire (Long sleeve shirt and long pants)
  • Photo ID
  • Steel Cap Boots and PPE (Hi-Vis, hard hat and glasses, if you have them)
  • Lunch or shops are close by.

Do I need a Drivers Licence to undertake a course/assessment?

You do not need a drivers licence however you need to provide a form of photo ID.

Depending on the machine and where you will be operating, you may need a licence for your work tasks.

We do recommend that you have operated at least a motor vehicle before attending a course. Please contact us if you have never operated a vehicle before.

How much experience do you need to undertake a 4 hour training & assessment course?

You need to have around 100 hours of experience (this is about 2 weeks worth of 8 hour days). You will need experience with the full operations of the machine. eg, if you operate an excavator with a grab only, you still need experience with a bucket.

You will need to fill in a declaration of experience before the assessment.

Declaration of experience

Is ACMT a Registered Training Organisation?

Yes. RTO – 40396

Most of our courses are Nationally recognised but please check with ACMT staff before enrolment.


Am I guaranteed to pass the course?

All our training is competency based. Our courses are designed so that there is sufficient time to be able to complete the course and get the skills needed to meet the unit of competency.

You are not guaranteed to pass/complete the course in the time and we do offer more training if required.

For training/assessments regulated by SafeWork SA, there are specific reassessment guidelines that trainers will follow if someone is not yet competent.
