High Risk Work

The CFMEU runs a number of courses in high risk work.  All our high risk work training leads to the attainment of a WorkSafe licence - no worker is permitted to perform high risk work on site without the WorkSafe licence.

For more specific information about the training including codes and titles of units of competency, nominal hours and timeframes, download the Course Directory. You can also download our Dare to Learn Course Pathways Guide; this provides suggested pathways for careers in construction.
