July Training Course

Operating a Drain Cleaning System

Why it is in your best interest to train your drain-cleaning operators?

If your drain cleaning system is a ‘Class B’ high-pressure water jetting pump then you and your drain-cleaning operators need to be trained as per the Australian Standards. Untrained operators may affect your comapny insurance policy.


The Australian/New Zealand Standards for “High Pressure Water Jetting Systems” were released in 2013 in a bid to provide information that would assist in the prevention of fatalities and injuries being sustained by drain cleaning and HPWJ operators both here and in New Zealand.

The Australian Work Health and Safety (WHS) Act 2011 – Section 19 “Duty of Care” places the responsibility squarely on the employer stating… “The person conducting a business or undertaking MUST ensure the provision of information, training, instruction or supervision that is necessary to protect all persons from risks to their health and safety from works carried out as part of their business or undertaking”.

The standards, both AS/NZS 4233.1-2013 High pressure water jetting systems – Part 1: Safe Operation and Maintenance and AS/NZS 4233.2-2013 – Part 2: Construction and performance, in conjunction with the national qualifications MSMSS00004 Operate a high pressure water jetting system and MSMSS00005 Operate a drain cleaning system are the documents referred to when looking to what is deemed as appropriate training in drain cleaning and high pressure water jetting systems in Australia.

The Australia/NZ Standard recommends training by a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) with a 1 day refresher training course to be undertaken by high pressure water jetting and drain cleaning operators every 2 years.

Assassin Jetters provides a 2-day intensive RTO training course in “Drain Cleaning System Operation” which covers…

  • Basic pump operation and parts familiarisation
  • Worksite risk and hazard prevention, personnel safety, work area exclusion zones and isolations
  • Setting up and operating your drain cleaning system safely
  • Following emergency response procedures
  • Working in accordance with an issued permit (where onsite work requires a permit )
  • Interpreting technical drawings (reading and interpreting asset maps)
  • Working safely

Recipients of the training receive a National Qualification in the form of Statement of Attainment verifying competency in HPWJ and/or Drain Cleaning operations.

If you are serious about keeping your people safe and protecting your business should an accident happen… you need to get yourself and your people RTO trained today.


Morning Tea and Lunch will be provided for all participants.
