The VTA has recently launched two new training programs to introduce new people to the transport industry and place them into permanent jobs.
The programs are supported by the Victorian Government and run in conjunction with Armstrong Driver Education and Logical Staffing Solutions, and are significantly subsidised so they can be offered at little or no cost to participants and employers.
Transition to Transport is an intensive eight-module course that will attract those that are new to the industry and require more in-depth knowledge of supply chain, logistics, transport operations and associated regulations. Participants will be job-ready at the end of the program and the VTA will mentor candidates in their first three months of employment.
Driver Delivery is an intensive nine-day industry-ready driver licensing course to be delivered in either heavy rigid synchromesh or heavy combination standards. Over 60 hours of hands on training and instruction, drivers will receive advanced skills training covering OH&S, cabin drill, load restraint, loading docks, reversing and standard transport runs.
