Driver Training Tailored to Your Operational Requirements

Sydney, Newcastle, Hunter Valley, Scone, Tamworth, Bathurst, Gunnedah, Roma, Mackay, Rockhampton, Gladstone, Brisbane, Mt Isa

Course Outline:

Our 4 Wheel Drive courses are designed for persons who are required to drive for their work requirements. Participants will develop skills to select correct driving techniques and use appropriate safety equipment.
Participants will also undergo practical instruction in the correct use and care of a vehicle. 

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."
