Does your business include trucks/buses and other heavy vehicles,
store /warehouse operations, yard workers, couriers, forklift drivers, or furniture removers?
If so, and you are thinking about the future needs of your business, consider traineeships as a great way to recruit and train employees.
An affordable employment and training option for your business
The benefits to your organisation are:
Access to Australian Government Incentives
A training program tailored to meet your industry/enterprise needs
A more productive employee, who is familiar with your business and
trained for your industry.
New employees to the industry have the opportunity to be trained to
National Standards and become valuable employees within the industry. Transport Traineeships also allow experienced
employees to receive recognition of their skills and knowledge in the form of a Nationally Recognised Qualification.
As a Registered Training Organisation, Transport Industries Skills Centre can assist your organisation by providing
training options as well as assessing your staff against National Competency Standards.
This may allow you as an employer to access Government Incentives available for undertaking a traineeship.
Remember the qualifications are based on standards developed by YOUR industry, and can be tailored to YOUR enterprise.
On average the duration of a traineeship is as follows:
Certificate II in Transport and Logistics - 1 year program comprising of 14 units.
Certificate III in Transport and Logistics - 2 year program comprising of 21 units including the 14 units above.
TISC can assist in all stages of the traineeship through:
1. Assisting employers identify employees who have the skills to do their job but who may not have any formal
qualifications or a new employee who has recently commenced in your organisation that requires further training.
2. Helping employers and employees match the most appropriate Units of Competency to include on a training plan,
and establish a fee agreement depending on the units chosen and the training required.
3. Notifying an Australian Apprenticeship Centre (AAC) of your interest in joining the program.
4. Assisting employers and employees in participating in on and off the job training, and assessment against the
national standards at intervals throughout the traineeship period.
5. Issuing of Nationally Recognised Qualifications to employees on successfully completion of the traineeship.
