What is an EWP Ticket or Yellow Card Training?
Many people need to use elevated work platforms to carry out some jobs and tasks in their workplace. In Australia, all workers need to complete EWP ticket training in order to meet the safety standards required by Work Health and Safety (WHS), Occupational Health and Safety (OHS), and the Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Acts and Regulations.
Origin Institute's EWP ticket training supports workers in construction and many other sectors in the safe and effective operation of electrical, hydraulic, and mechanical EWPs.
Once completed, your Statement of Attainment is recognised and accepted throughout Australia and allows you to operate Scissor Lift (SL), Vertical Lift (VL), and Boom Lift (BL) under 11 metres.
What are the advantages of attending EWP ticket training from a nationally recognised program?
it is recognised by Work Health and Safety (WHS), Occupational Health and Safety (OHS), and the Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Acts and Regulations,
it is nationally recognised,
the Statement of Attainment (SoA) for EWP training issued by the RTO is valid lifetime,
your training outcome is registered with the National Training Registrar (a government body), and

What is the correct training outcome/evidence I should keep?
Origin Institute recommends everyone, who needs to use EWP in their workplace, to complete the EWP ticket training from a nationally recognised training program.

Is my Statement of Attainment legitimate evidence of EWP ticket training?
The statement of attainment for EWP ticket training is always recognised by Work Health and Safety (WHS), Occupational Health and Safety (OHS), and the Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Acts and Regulations.
