Komatsu Training Academy offers a range of industry accredited short courses which provide the formal qualifications required to safely and competently operate a range of machinery. One of our most popular short courses is the accredited unit: ‘RIISAM301E Test operational functions of vehicles and equipment’. This unit of competency is ideal for people working in operational roles who are required to have the knowledge and skills necessary to “move and test” various vehicles or pieces of equipment, within a large range of industry sectors.
Aimed at both internal Komatsu Australia employees, as well as external clients who may use Komatsu machinery on their sites, including excavators, dozers, graders, wheel loaders, trucks etc.
During the one day course theory and practical elements will cover basic moving and operational testing of various machinery types, vehicles and equipment. Key course elements will include:
- Planning and preparing vehicles and equipment for testing – accessing, interpreting and applying relevant site documentation / data; obtaining and interpreting emergency procedures and WHS requirements; obtaining required resources; and workplace activity co-ordination.
- Physical testing of vehicles and equipment – carrying out pre-start, start-up, shut-down and isolation procedures; moving and relocating machinery for testing purposes; identifying and rectifying faults / reporting monitoring systems warning and alarms; arranging for corrective action to be taken; recognising and responding to hazardous /emergency situations.
- Completing the testing sequence – cleaning, maintaining and storing equipment and tools; restoring the worksite and completing all required records and site / WHS documentation.
After completing the accredited unit RIISAM301E Test operational functions of vehicles and equipment participants will have gained a clear understating of testing operational functions of different machine types as part of their practical assessment component. Each participant will receive a nationally recognised Statement of Attainment for their accreditation records. If requested, an additional Komatsu proficiency card can be provided, which notes exact machine types which participant’s were deemed to be competent on. This reference card is often useful when visiting client’s on-site.
The accredited unit RIISAM301E can be delivered at Komatsu Training Academy’s own training facilities, at your local branch, or onsite on a client’s own premise.
