Training Brief

In alignment with AS 4233.1-2013 High pressure water jetting systems - Section 7.4 Refresher Training, Drain Cleaning operators are required to undergo verification of competency or refresher training at appropriate intervals not exceeding 2 years. The Drain Cleaning Operator Refresher course first assesses the competency of a qualified operator to the unit of competency MSMWJ305 Operate a drain cleaning system to produce a gap analysis (GA) showing the content in which the operator needs to be refreshed. Once assessed the Trainer only refreshes on the revealed GA content plus any updated legislation, updated Australian & NZ Standard information or any recent new safe work practices introduced by industry.

Any supporting units of competency listed on a trainees prior Statement of Attainment will be credit transferred.
