RIIMPO318E – a.k.a. Bobcat training
Are you looking for an efficient and affordable way to get your skid steer / Bobcat licence? As a RTO (Registered Training Organisation), Affordable Driving School can train and assess for this type of course. We provide nationally recognised training and assessment – RIIMPO318E, the prerequisite course for getting your skid steer / Bobcat ticket in Brisbane. Course fees vary depending on your circumstances – for example, we may be able to offer a discount if you have your own machine to work with.
Potential Bobcat training students must:
- Provide two different forms of identification
- Be able to read and write English at a basic level (another WH&S requirement)
- Wear sturdy work boots or steel cap boots to training
All training and assessment is done onsite at Affordable Driving School, by experienced and fully accredited trainers and assessors. This is a competency-based course, with certain minimum benchmarks which must be met. All training materials are provided – all you have to bring is a great attitude and a willingness to learn!
This course consists of a formal (theory) component and a practical training component. The theory component will include watching safety and instructional DVDs, as well as industry PowerPoints. Once you have completed the theory training, you’ll be given a training plan which includes all the RIIMPO318E elements and tasks. Practical Skid Steer training is conducted on a simulated work site, so you’ll really get an idea of what it’s like to work with a Skid Steer.
Once you’ve completed the training, you’ll be assessed. If you pass this assessment and are deemed competent in all areas, you’ll get your statement of attainment and a photo ID licence (see below).
