A certificate IV in Workplace Health and Safety training (also known as cert 4 WHS or OHS) is the recommended minimum requirement for workplace safety representatives.

Although the course length and scope is not as comprehensive as a Diploma course, which would be more suitable for a role as a WH&S Compliance Manager, the Cert IV is suitable as a strong foundation and introduction into the world of WH&S compliance management, legalities and legislations, as well as risk minimisation.

This course is also well-suited to those who act in various supporting roles in the field of Health and Safety and also Risk Management in the Workplace.

Course Duration

5 Consecutive days course

This course format is designed for those who need to complete an intensive series of training sessions in a short period of time, in order to fulfil compliance or other work requirements. We found that this course has been particularly useful in the case of founding or newly developing businesses who need a qualified WH&S representative as quickly as possible to meet compliance concerns.

4 Days over 4 Weeks course

On the other hand, if you can’t afford to miss a week of work, or have a nominated staff member away for an entire week, our 4 training session over 4 weeks would be right for you. Generally running on a Tuesday, the course would go on for 4 Tuesdays in a month.

Course Requirements

1. Laptop or portable tablet device with WiFi functionality.

The majority of our course material is saved onto our online Open Learning platform so that participants can access the information they require from anywhere. A laptop or WiFi enabled tablet device is necessary to complete some Open Learning registration and to access course materials during the face-to-face training sessions.
