Unattended Boiler Course – Training for Workers in the Vicinity of Boilers

Adept can help you meet your requirements for unattended boiler operations

The new Code of Practice states that workers who operate plant should be competent

Workers do not need a High Risk Work Licence for Unattended Boilers but are still required to have in-house training for the Unattended Boiler.

The new Code of Practice states that workers who operate plant should be competent or suitably supervised during training, so that they do not put themselves or others at risk.

The Unattended Boiler Course provided by Adept consists of an initial training period of eight hours. If elected, a follow up visit can be arranged for the instructor to review completed logbooks and carry out the four hour practical assessments on each student.

This course requires face-to-face training. This training incorporates legislation requirements, risk management, principles of boiler monitoring, boiler control functions and boiler water control principles.

A certificate of attendance will be issued once the initial training is concluded, as required by legislation. If assessments have been conducted and the learner is successful, they will receive both a certificate of attendance and a certificate of proficiency in the operation of your boiler.


An inspection report/certificate and WorkCover registration of your boiler is needed upon enrolment to enable us to determine what boiler training you require.


A written assessment of topics covered during training will be completed and marked during the class session. A final practical and theoretical assessment by the Adept trainer will take place after completion of practical tasks and verification of completion of the trainee Logbook. If competency is achieved, the State Authority Assessor will be engaged for final theoretical and practical assessments.

“Adept Inspections & Training were called upon to carry out Statutory Pressure Vessel Testing & Inspections on our available assets, not only in our Workshop but were more than willing to travel to nearby sites. Adept not only supplied us with a punctual and competent Service Technician but also, with friendly Office Staff who look after all necessary planning, recording and documentation. I would recommend Adept Inspections and Training to anyone who requires this type of service.”
