Refresher Training (VOCs)

Refresher training, also known as Verification of Competency is another service that Wakefield Consultant Services can provide. We have ready-to-go Forklift, EWP And Rigging packages, combining theory and practical assessments. The training package we offer is streamlined to ensure you or your staff are fully compliant in the most efficient time possible.

  • How are you managing COVID 19?
    Wakefield Consultant Services continues to monitor the local impact of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and the latest directives surrounding this. The safety, health and well-being of our team, trainers/assessors, and our students, is our top priority. We are continuing to offer face-to-face classes under the most recent advice from public health authorities, and have implemented additional measures with aim to provide the safest possible learning environment for our students. These measures include conducting smaller class sizes, facilitating social distancing wherever possible, increasing cleaning of our facilities, and provision of hand sanitiser. We need your help to keep everyone safe and healthy. How? When attending your training session, please be prepared to follow the instruction of your trainer regarding measures such as social distancing. While not mandatory, you may wish to bring and wear a face mask as an additional precaution. Importantly, please reschedule your training for another time if in the last 14 days you have: Experienced symptoms such as coughing, fever, sore throat, shortness of breath or body aches Been in close contact with anyone who has a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19 Returned from overseas travel If symptoms appear while attending your course, please return home immediately for both your comfort and the safety of those around you. If you are seen to be demonstrating these symptoms, you may be asked to leave the facility, again, for safety reasons. Thank you. We value your custom and appreciate your help in keeping our workplace and each other safe.
  • How often do I need to have refresher training?
    Generally every 3 years, but that can vary from site to site and different employers. It's always best to check with a new employer or site to confirm their requirements. The majority of larger sites require an operator to have a current VOC for the specified piece of plant they will be operating.
  • Where do you do the training?
    Provided there is access to suitable compliant plant and equipment, we can come to you.
  • What's the class size?
    Our minimum class size is 4 people.
  • Do you offer any other training?
    At this stage no, but stay tuned as we are in the process of registering as an RTO.
  • How long does the training take
    We offer a blended version in which the majority of the required paperwork is completed prior to the practical assessment. Depending on equipment a VOC can take a couple of hours.
