CPCCLDG3001 – Licence to perform dogging

CPCCLDG3001, also known as the Licence to Perform Dogging course, is designed to provide participants with the knowledge and skills required to safely and competently perform dogging tasks in a range of industries. This includes selecting and inspecting lifting gear, directing the crane operator, and safely slinging and moving loads.

Course Description

Participants who successfully complete the CPCCLDG3001 Licence to perform dogging course will receive all required documentation to lodge for a High-Risk Work (HRW) license, including a nationally recognised Statement of Attainment and a Notice of Assessment. These documents will enable participants to apply for a HRW license through the relevant regulatory authority in their state or territory.

The CPCCLDG3001 course covers a range of topics, including relevant legislation and regulations, hazard identification and risk assessment, the principles of load control, and the selection and use of lifting gear. Participants will also learn how to communicate effectively with the crane operator, how to safely sling and move loads, and how to conduct pre-operational checks and inspections of lifting gear.

What is dogging?

WorkSafe QLD defines dogging as:

  • the application of slinging techniques including the selection and inspection of lifting gear to safely sling a load
  • the directing of a plant operator in the movement of a load when the load is out of the operator’s view.

In Australia, workers doing dogging work are known as a dogger or dogman.
