Roller Ticket : Ease Your Way In To Civil Construction

Thought about working in the Civil Construction industry?  Why not, taking into consideration Civil Construction opportunities are constantly popping up throughout Australia with a continual increase in infrastructure projects, housing subdivisons and public roads.  With that said and your time and money in mind, a Roller ticket is the first ticket you’ll want to acquire as they’re the least technical machine to operate.

This specific qualification can be achieved differently, depending on what suits your circumstances best.

Full Formal Training – Usually a 2-3 day course in which you must satisfy all National Standards. After this course is complete and if you pass you will recieve a Roller Ticket.

Log Book Training – A log book will be issued to you, in which you will need to build up hours on the job.  You are required to be under supervision of a person that holds a WPHS licence for the machine you are training on.
