Yellow Card and Gold Card Training

Scissor Lift (Yellow Cards) and Telescopic Handler (Gold Cards)

Scissor Lift opperation Brisbane north

Smiths Training Services is a member of the Elevated Work Platform Association of Australia and is accredited to deliver training and assessment for (Yellow Cards) for scissor lifts under 11 metres, boom lifts, vertical lifts, trailer lift, truck mounted and transport restraint.

We offer scissor lift and telescopic handler training throughout Brisbane, the Sunshine Coast and all over Australia and Pacific Region (upon application).

The EWPA Yellow Card is a nationally accredited (No: VQA 21629) scheme run in cooperation with Northern Melbourne Institute of TAFE (NMIT) and recognised by all major manufacturers, suppliers and users of EWPs (elevated work platforms). The Yellow Card initiative meets the two key objectives of the WHS  Acts, being:

  • It confirms that the operators of specific types of EWPs have been trained in the safe use of the work platform.
  • The supplier, employer and user all have documentary evidence that the required ‘duty of care’ has been met or exceeded.



We are also accredited to deliver training and assessment for (Gold Cards) for telescopic handlers.

Telescopic handler driver training Scissor Lift

A telescopic handler, commonly known as a telehandler is a versatile type of lifting plant that includes a telescopic boom fitted with a lifting attachment. The typical lifting attachment used is a fork tyne, but other attachments are used depending on the load lifted. Telehandlers can vary in function – from their primary use as a telescopic forklift to lifting suspended loads as a crane or being used as an elevating work platform (EWP) by using a work platform attachment.

If your site has a scissor lift or telescopic handler we will come to you to deliver the training for these machines. The majority of construction companys request that all contractors using scissor lifts or telescopic handlers must have a trained operator Yellow or Gold Card to prove operator competency.

Both the Yellow Cards and Gold Cards are now photo ID cards and are renewable every 5 years.
