Heavy Vehicles 101 – new starter induction course
At the completion of the dynamic, interactive online course, students should be able to follow non-technical discussions around heavy vehicle topics and understand what is being discussed, having learned a working vocabulary of common heavy vehicle terminology.
Why do we think the course is useful?
You might think of yourself as a career professional based on your particular skill set.
For instance, if you are a welder you might consider that all welders, no matter what particular industry they work in, are your peers. And it is true. The same goes for engineers, marketing specialists, sales, human resources, warehouse managers, and of course, the list goes on.
However, a career in the heavy vehicle industry is about far more than just your singular skill set.
It is how your contribution fits into the big picture.
Your role is a vital cog in the machinery that allows the trucking industry to keep Australia moving.
