Asset Training helps operators undergo verification

Australia’s first online drain cleaning refresher

Aqua Assets provides water and waste management services to businesses in the utility, construction, engineering and trade sectors.

Services include civil works, non-destructive digging, vacuum loading, CCTV, drain cleaning and pipeline rehabilitation.

Aqua Assets subsidiary Asset Training is specially dedicated to providing training in water and waste management and industrial maintenance services.

This registered training organisation (RTO) primarily focuses on work safety, backed by vocational educators who are passionate about the level of instruction they provide.

Operating since 2006, Asset Training is an award-winning RTO dedicated to providing safe work training.

For more than 15 years, the company has continued to grow its portfolio of industry-specific trainers who collectively have more than 40 years of combined industry experience.

Asset Training has recently launched a new online drain cleaning refresher – a short course achievable in less than a week, reinvigorating the individual on the relevant drain cleaning unit of competency.  

While COVID-19 has restricted many industrial maintenance businesses from accessing the training they require, Asset Training has adapted its curriculum to help operators maintain their nationally accredited compliance standing remotely.

The Online Drain Cleaning Refresher course recognises the current restraints placed on businesses, providing a new level of accessibility through the online training course.

Drain cleaning operators are required to undergo verification of competency or refresher training at appropriate intervals not exceeding two years.

The Online Drain Cleaning Refresher course uses the MSMWJ302 system to assess the competency knowledge of the drain cleaning operator.

The operator is then practically assessed through document and video submissions, and if successful, is re-certified as competent to perform their responsibilities.

Refresher training is required by industry, and the training offered by Asset Training is nationally recognised, up to date, and of the highest quality.

The training comprises both theoretical and practical components and the theory includes five online quizzes with a pass/fail grading.

Each quiz is supported by a video lesson that students can view before submission, and students are given two attempts for each question.

There are two types of practical assessments: there are a series of site safety documents that must be submitted (some of these may be work documents that can be completed on the job), and videos must be taken demonstrating students carrying out practical tasks. These will need to be uploaded and reviewed by an Asset Training assessor.

A refresher has a two-year limit, and an allowance of two months is given for students to complete all assigned tasks.

Operators must submit all assigned tasks at least two weeks prior to their two-year refresher date to ensure a new Statement of Attainment can be issued in time.

Asset Training has dedicated time and resources to developing successful bridging courses and the organisation can provide experienced operators with the opportunity to upgrade their training to the next level.

Asset Training is now offering one-day bridging courses for those seeking to upgrade their High Pressure Water Jetting (HPWJ) qualifications, vacuum loading and drain cleaning skill sets as well.

Asset Training says it expects water utilities and pipeline maintenance companies, plumbers, and local councils will greatly benefit from the new level of accessibility offered by these courses.
