Transport & Logistics Training Package Update

The Transport and Logistics Training Package Release 1.0, containing eleven qualifications in the Warehousing, Logistics and Road Transport sectors, has now been submitted for endorsement by the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC). The final 25 qualifications in the current Transport and Logistics Training Package will be submitted for endorsement in November.

The process of transitioning training package products to the Standards for Training Packages has provided an opportunity to review all qualifications and units with stakeholders to ensure currency. This review has resulted in a number of improvements to TLI Training Package.

TLISC greatly appreciates the time that all stakeholders have dedicated to the transition process to ensure the development of a high quality Training Package that meets the skills needs of industry, enterprises and individuals.

Should you require any further information about the Transport and Logistics Training Package, please contact Judy Green on 03 9604 7214 or by email: judy.green@tlisc.org.au.

Training Package progress accelerates

The first week of September has been very significant with a number of milestone achievements for industry stakeholders and the TLISC Training Package team. We’ve seen the endorsement of two Training Packages, the AVI Aviation Training Package and the MAR Maritime Training Package along with the submission of the TLI Transport and Logistics Training Package for endorsement.

MAR Maritime Training Package Release 3.0 – Endorsement

The MAR Maritime Training Package Release 3.0 was endorsed on 1 September 2015. Release 3.0 includes 5 Qualifications and 20 Units of Competency.

Further information can be found on the TLISC website.

AVI Aviation Training Package Release 1.0 – Endorsement

The AVI Aviation Training Package Release 1.0 was endorsed on 1 September 2015. Release 1.0 includes 1 Qualification, 12 Units of Competency and 2 Skill Sets.

Further information can be found on the TLISC website.

TLI Transport and Logistics Training Package Release 1.0 – Submission:

The TLI Transport and Logistics Training Package Release 1.0 was submitted for endorsement to the Department of Education and Training on the 1st September 2015. The Case for Endorsement includes 37 qualifications, 63 skill sets and 439 units of competency and which have been aligned to the Standards for Training Packages.

The materials can be found on the TLISC website.

While the two Training Package endorsements and the submission of TLI were significant, there is still more to be done to get all of our Training Packages transitioned to the Standards for Training Packages. It’s pleasing to say that we remain on track to complete all transition and review work across our three Training Packages by November. The industry led improvements to our Training Package products will provide enhanced opportunities to meet the current and future skills demands of workplaces across the Supply Chain in the Aviation, Maritime, Rail, Road Transport, Warehousing, Logistics and Ports sectors.

Transport & Logistics Training Package Update

PUBLICATIONS | 20 Nov 2014

TLI Update

Safety is the key point when it comes to training in the Transport and Logistics Industry.  There has been a lot of movement lately in the Road Transport sector around greater safety measures being introduced in areas such as chain of responsibility, fatigue management, load restraint and transporting of Dangerous Goods.

To this end, TLISC have continued to work on a number of improvements to the competency standards, in consultation with industry personnel, in the Road Transport sector. Two meetings were held in October to discuss the Driving Operations and Driving Instruction qualifications.  Both meetings were well attended and provided robust discussion and outcomes; some of which are as follows:

  • 5 new skills sets have been developed to cover owner drivers, Dangerous Goods tanker drivers and road transport drivers(which includes compliance factors)
  • Packaging rules have been reworked for greater clarification for the 3 Driving Operations qualifications, along with inclusion of the Chain of Responsibility units in the core and electives
  • TLISC has been working with Australia’s transport of dangerous goods Competent Authorities Panel (CAP) to review the unit of competency: TLILIC3013A – Preparation to Transport Dangerous Goods by Road. A meeting is being held this week with CAP members and select RTO’s to further progress this review. I will let you know how this goes in the next newsletter.
  • The 3 Driving Instruction qualifications will go through the process to align them to the new Training Package templates

Following these meetings, the revised units of competency and qualifications will be placed on the website for review and feedback.

The Warehousing and Logistics qualifications and units of competency that were on the website for comment have now been removed. All feedback will be compiled and presented to the W & L Steering committee for comment and action.

Up and coming events that I will be involved in:

13 November GTA conference – Tasmania
14 November CAP DG meeting – Adelaide
17 November TAFE Advisory Committee meeting – Melbourne
20 November T & L Advisory Committee meeting – Melbourne
27-28 November RTO Forum – Western Australia
5 December RTO Advisory Committee meeting – Melbourne

Transport & Logistics Training Package Update

 Transport & Logistics Training Package Update

The Transport and Logistics industry provides a diverse range of great job opportunities and the need for skilled and well trained personnel is always in demand.  Ensuring that the competency standards meet current, specific job outcomes is critical to this industry’s growth. As always, there is a lot going on in the development of Transport and Logistics training packages.

Work continues on the Warehousing and Logistics qualifications and units of competency, with the Steering Committee meeting in September to provide valuable feedback on the transition process and other key projects. Some recommendations from this meeting were:

  1. Agreement that the revised ‘Chain of responsibility’ units should now be included as core and optional electives in the Warehouse and Logistics qualifications. So it is being recommended that the unit ‘Apply Chain of responsibility regulations and workplace procedures’ be core in the Certificate II, III and IV and the unit ‘Administer chain of responsibility policies and procedures’ be core for the Diploma qualifications.
  2. The new Scheduling Qualification that was developed by the Rail sector would have application in Warehousing & Logistics sector, so further work will be done to look at this in more detail
  3. Making the unit ‘Apply awareness of dangerous goods’ more available and so suggest that it be moved into the elective bank to provide greater flexibility
  4. As a result of an issue raised regarding the unit; ‘TLID3035A – Operate a boom type elevating platform’, a working group will be formed to look at it in more detail, as it does not appear to address the use of scissor and vertical lifts

All recommended changes to the Warehouse and Logistics qualifications and units of competency are available for comment and validation on the website under the Transport and Logistics Training Packages area.

Meanwhile, there has been a great deal of work being done in the Road Transport area. Two meetings have been scheduled this week to discuss the process of moving the qualifications and units of competency to the new standards, in the Driving Operations and Driving Instruction qualifications.  Following these meetings, the revised units of competency and qualifications will be placed on the website for review and feedback. Outcomes from both meetings will be published in the November newsletter.

Upcoming events that I will be involved in:

23 Oct                   Driving Operations Steering Committee meeting – Sydney

24 Oct                   Driving Instruction Steering Committee meeting – Sydney

5 Nov                    TAFE Training Providers Annual Conference – Ballarat

12 – 14 Nov         2014 Group Training National Conference – Tasmania

14 Nov                  Dangerous goods Technical Advisory Group meeting – Adelaide

27-28 Nov            RTO Forum – Perth

Transport industry takes footy to the regions

PUBLICATIONS | 19 Aug 2014

Monday 18 August marked the start of the second annual ‘Boots for Kids’ campaign which sees pre-loved footy boots delivered to indigenous kids around the Australia.

Linfox will transport footy boots donated at Coles supermarkets throughout NSW and Victoria to rural and remote communities which have been identified in collaboration with Aboriginal land councils.

Fairfax Media have produced a short video capturing the story of how season-old boots from the cities can make their way across the country to children in need, providing them with access to sporting opportunities which may have passed them by if not for the generous donation.

Last year over 5,000 pairs of footy boots – from all codes – were donated, cleaned up, paired with new socks and trucked to areas such as Gunbalunya in East Arnhem Land and Bayulu near Fitzroy Crossing in the Pilbara.

Have you got a pair of footy boots in the cupboard collecting dust? Why not dig them out and donate them to this fantastic cause.
