Transport & Logistics Training Package Update

The review of competency standards in the Road Transport sector is now in top gear, as TLISC continues to meet with key stakeholders to look more closely at a number of the ‘Drive’ qualifications. As we finalise the Driving Operations qualifications, work has now commenced on reviewing the Driving Instruction qualifications and associated units of competency.

  • The units in the three Driving Instruction qualifications are being reviewed to ensure they still meet the needs of the Driving Instructors sector. Drafts of the three qualifications are now available for public comment on the website. The ‘Develop safe driving behaviours’ units are also being reviewed and may be refined to more closely reflect the skills and knowledge needed to instruct novice drivers.
  • The Driving Operations qualifications and associated units of competency have been on the website for final comment, as part of the validation process. This has been an extensive review of the three qualifications which is now almost complete.  The final projects in this area that are still continuing or nearing completion include:
  • The eight units relating to the Taxi industry in the Certificate II Driving Operations, have gone through a consultation process with the Taxi Regulators and comment is now being sought from the wider Taxi industry stakeholders to ensure the Taxi Industry is well represented in this review process
  • The Pilot vehicles (Group E) job roles group, which is part of the Certificate III Driving Operations, will be modified to reflect the outcomes of an extensive review conducted by Austroads and the National Transport Commission. The five units of competency recommended for pilot / escort vehicle drivers to complete as part of the accreditation process, have been agreed upon by all States and Territories. This approach has been outlined in the proposed ‘National Accreditation Scheme for pilot and escort vehicle drivers’. Thus, the units in the Group E job role are now being recommended as follows:
      • TLIB2004A Carry Out Vehicle Inspection
      • TLIC3010A Pilot or Escort Oversized and/or Overmassed Loads
      • TLIE3009A Use Pilot and Escort Communication
      • TLIF3013A Coordinate Breakdowns and Emergencies
      • TLIF3060A Control Traffic as a Pilot Vehicle Operator
  • The Dangerous Goods (DG) licence Technical advisory group (TAG) will shortly be in a position to provide a final draft of this unit:“TLILIC3013A Preparation to transport dangerous goods by road”, so ‘watch this space’

The review of the five Materiel and Deployment Logistics qualifications has continued. They will be available on the website for comment late March.

In the Warehousing and Logistics sector, five qualifications and associated units of competency are being prepared for submission for endorsement. They include:

TLI10115 Certificate I in Transport and Logistics (Pathways)
TLI11215 Certificate I in Warehousing Operations
TLI11315 Certificate I in Logistics
TLI21815 Certificate II in Logistics
TLI50415 Diploma of Logistics
