These Qualifications are for any individual who is, or wishes to be, involved in operating a lifting machine/s or dealing with challenges in a lifting machine. Typical learners will be persons who are currently performing a range of activities and processes in lifting machine environment who have not received any formal recognition for their skills and knowledge, or learners who wish to embark on this qualification or those with a broad knowledge and skills base who work with lifting machines and who want to specialize in certain aspects of the lifting machine environment. While the Qualification is primarily aimed at providing the lifting machine operator the opportunity to acquire the knowledge, skills and attributes required to perform a variety of activities using lifting equipment, it does not preclude any other individual both within and outside the lifting machine environment from accessing it.

This Qualification also enables the learner to work with a degree of responsibility during the performance of the lifting operation without working under direct supervision. The learner will also be able to display leadership skills among fellow workers in operating the lifting machine to perform a variety of tasks.
