Dangerous Goods Drivers Licence
The Dangerous Goods Drivers Licence course focuses on the Australian Code for the transport of Dangerous Goods Code by Road & Rail 7th edition (ADG7).
It covers all aspects of the Code, providing comprehensive information about the state and territory regulatory requirements, and includes the major changes from ADG6. The responsibilities of all parties in the transport chain are included.
It is customised specifically to meet the needs and interests of the participants, and is delivered in a manner that ensures high levels of interest and learning retention.
Course content includes identification and handling, safety precautions and equipment, and compliance with the statutory requirements. Chain of Responsibility, load restraint and container fill levels also make up part of the required knowledge for an industry operator. These skills will be tested to ensure applicants are able to complete all related functions in the workplace.
Please note: Assessment is conducted using the mandated assessment tool set by the Regulator, which requires a reasonable command of English and basic numeracy skills.
This course includes a face-to-face module which runs for a minimum of 16 hours. All learning material and documentation will be provided on the day. Applicants selecting Safe Load Pass (SLP) must also complete modules after a licence is issued.
