This course incorporates the Unit of Competency, TLIC1051A – Operate Commercial Vehicle from the Transport and Logistics Training Package.

About the Course

The major purpose of this Unit of Competency is to provide and introductory course for individuals who are already operating, or would like to seek employment which involves operating a commercial vehicle.

The information trained and assessed in the Unit of Competency is used by many large organisations as a Control Measure as part of their Risk Management Process. This is particularly true in the case of organisations such as Mining Companies who have work environments where driving can represent a significant risk exposure.

This Unit of Competency is required by and has been requested of Shawsett Training and Safety by a number of large organisations. Some examples of these are:

  • Chevron
  • Kellogg Joint Venture

For these organisations, the qualification provided by a recognised training provider is required to gain access to their sites and MUST be completed as part of their induction process.
