Overview

This course teaches how to select and prepare mowing equipment and machinery, carry out worksite preparation and safety checks, operate a mower to mow reserves and roadside vegetation and carry out post-operational procedures.

It can be customised to suit specific machinery, working environments and company protocols.

Please bring along your ID on training day - We need to verify the identity of students in attendance, please bring ID with you on the day of training.

Key Learning Outcomes:

  1. Minimal written theory beyond daily company timesheets, machinery check-sheets, and safety briefings as most of the course is run on-site while production continues
  2. The unit standard requires a consistent level of production mowing, balanced with knowledge of mowing plant set-up, machinery operation, and safety
  3. Where initial assessment shows consistent competency in some areas, time will be diverted to areas requiring improvement
  4. Where attendees are already mowing but wish to gain accreditation (or improve their skills) this course is designed to create as minimal disruption to production as practical. New staff are initially trained then buddied up to gain experience during a longer assessment and improvement phase. This is done in partnership with the relevant company delegate.Stage 2 - 1 Day Logbook & Fatigue 24089, If you hold unit standard 24089, it is current and you can provide evidence, you can qualify for the reduced course options
