Spotter registration and training

ESV has updated advice to Spotters regarding registration renewal while Stage 3 and 4 restrictions are in place across Victoria. Read more.

A spotter must be used when working inside specified clearances near overhead powerlines.

A Spotter is required for each item of plant or equipment operating in the vicinity of overhead electrical lines on any work site.

Registration

New spotters not registered with ESV, must provide:

  • Tickets of Competency
  • Current First Aid and Expired Air Resuscitation (EAR) documentation, and
  • Finalised training documentation from their registered training organisation (RTO).

For items of plant such as an Elevated Work Platform <11 Metres, or a Vehicle Mounted Crane <10 Tonne / Metres or other plant where there is no formal operating competency, evidence of training, competency and or experience must be demonstrated to obtain a Spotter Certificate.

The RTO will verify what classes spotters will be allowed to spot for.

Once this information is received by the registered training organisation (RTO), a completed Spotters Registration card will be generated by ESV and sent to the applicant’s residential address or work address – depending on the details provided to the RTO.

Registration renewal

For registered spotters seeking to renew their registration and receive an updated registration card:

  • Within three months of the expiry date of the spotters registration card the spotter must attend a spotters training course with an RTO, and
  • Provide documentation verifying any new competencies achieved and current First Aid and EAR documentation.

Once this is received from the RTO a new card will be generated by ESV and sent to the person’s residential address or work address – depending on the details provided to the RTO.

Re-issue of lost or stolen registration card

A completed statutory declaration is required for ESV to re-issue any licence or registration card which is lost, stolen or has not been received.

The declaration must clearly state your current address details and the spotter registration number of the card to be reissued (if known).

Send your completed statutory declaration to ESV via email: licensing@energysafe.vic.gov.au or post: Energy Safe Victoria, Licensing Section, PO Box 262, COLLINS STREET WEST, VIC 8007.

Spotter training providers

A number of organisations provide training for spotters in Victoria. The list of current training providers is below.

To be eligible to attend a training course, you must satisfy ESV’s general requirements for spotters.
