26 & 27 May, 2014 Novatel Forest Resort – Creswick

The theme of the conference for 2014 will be “Crisis or Opportunity”.

The transport market remains tough – as tough as some have seen it. And the regulators are circling – high profile incidents and some disturbing trends in regulatory breaches have Governments revisiting the transport rule book.

However, out of crisis comes opportunity – the opportunity to build resilient businesses and to respond positively as an industry.

Renowned for quality speakers and content, as well as a collaborative atmosphere, the 2014 VTA Conference is designed to leave you with practical, take-home advice to help improve business.

Rate Your Training

Rate Your Training is a website developed by the Department of Education that helps employers make an informed decision about training that suits their business needs

Rate Your Training

Using a simple, 5-star rating system against 15 criteria, employers can rate their experience with RTOs, or compare RTOs based on ratings that have been provided by their peers. Reviewing the ratings of other employers will help businesses to identify the training options that best meet their business needs.

Rate Your Training now needs employers to rate their experiences so that other employers can benefit from that knowledge. Encourage those you know who have recently utilised training to visit  and give their opinion on it.
