Detailed Description:

Objective

The Stage 3 Offshore Crane Operator Assessment is an internationally recognised and accepted assessment strategy for offshore crane operators. Candidates will be required to demonstrate knowledge, understanding and practical skills to successfully complete the assessment process and be deemed competent to work safely and effectively unsupervised.

 

Participants

Participants shall be experienced in all facets of offshore crane operations and have a minimum of 50 hours supervised and logged overside lifts. Participants will be required to operate an offshore crane unsupervised over a full suite of lifting activities including vessel to vessel transfer operations.

 

Assessment Content

Crane operators will be required to successfully complete a theory assessment before being deemed competent to operate an offshore crane unsupervised.

Assessor will accompany the crane operator to the crane cab and expect the operator to give a detailed and thorough description of the crane and its workings including but not limited to the following:

Describe the responsibilities of a crane operator referring to governing legislation requirements. (company to request regulations and legislation referred to and assessed against).

Limiting functions associated with the crane.

Ability to competently read the load chart for the crane being operated.

Understanding of load indicator functions. This is to include both static and dynamic modes.

Crane controls.

Wire ropes fitted to the crane including winches and luffing.

Once the crane operator has successfully provided evidence to the assessor of a thorough knowledge of the above requirements, the assessor will exit the crane cab and observe the practical component of the assessment. Crane operations should be based around operational duties where possible and shall include the use of an offshore supply vessel to demonstrate competency in dynamic lifting operations.

 

Assessment Pre-requisites

Experienced offshore crane operators with a minimum of 50 hours supervised and logged overside lifts.

 

Competency Achievement

Upon successful completion of the assessment process, the participant will be awarded a Stage 3 Offshore Crane Operator certificate of competency allowing them to operate an offshore crane unsupervised.

 

Language, Literacy and Numeracy Requirements

This assessment requires the ability to read and interpret typical product specifications, job sheets, procedures, material labels and safety information as provided to operators. Writing is required to the level of completing workplace forms. Numeracy is required to calculate loads and estimate balance points for slinging. All assessment activities will be conducted in English.

 

Assessment Requirements

Assessment is to be carried out on the worksite, using an offshore-rated crane to carry out lifting operations for the purposes of assessment. This is to be provided by the candidate or their sponsor. The assessment is expected to take one day, but is dependent on access to the worksite and operational requirements.

 

Assessment Duration

Approximately one day, dependant on operations and availability of offshore rated crane, OSV and crew.

 

Assessment Fee and Additional Service Costs

The following course fees relate to this assessment:

$2,000 + GST per day for assessment activities, door to door, plus expenses.

Participants may wish to purchase the following items to aid their studies and future progression:
