Operate a Light Vehicle

Course Outline:

Our Operate Light Vehicle courses cover the operation of a light vehicle in the resources and infrastructure industries. It includes planning and preparing for operations, operating a light vehicle, and carrying out operator maintenance. The training can tailored to your organisation's specific requirements. 

From 2004 to 2014 we delivered what was termed "Nationally Recognised Driver Training" under the Australian Quality Framework as an RTO, but what our clients increasingly told us is that their own internal safety policies had moved so far beyond what these courses provided, that they as organisations had stopped seeking "Nationally Recognised Training" unless it was specifically required for a Certificate e.g. (Certificate II in Drilling Operations). They did this because the training as designed wasn't delivering what they needed. After shutting up shop in 2014 and rebooting in 2021, we're rebuilding out capacity to deliver as an RTO for those who need that, but if you simply want your people trained to be safe in the identical competencies, we can deliver that training. In our view the National Training Framework has only led to poor outcomes and higher prices. Reminds me of the saying, "a camel is a horse designed by committee."

We are more than happy to discuss your needs and how our driver training can address the specific safety requirements of your operations.
