QTA launches short course series for road transport

The Queensland Trucking Association (QTA) has received funding for a two-year micro-credentialling initiative, under the Department of Employment, Small Business and Training Micro-credentialing Pilots Program.

Designed specifically for transport and logistics operators and businesses, the Road Freight Resilience Program (RFRP) will support online learning through shorter courses focusing on improving safety, efficiency and productivity.

QTA CEO Gary Mahon said the funding would support road transport with courses providing technical, digital and soft skills.

“Based on the needs of our industry we have selected ten course topics, from critical incidents to effective job costing and social media management,” Mahon said.

“We know it’s been a difficult year and many businesses simply don’t have time to invest in training or upskilling. So, the courses are designed to be delivered online and the majority only take one hour to complete.

“We are also excited to announce a trial of a digital Skills Passport will be included in the program. One thousand places will be available to support our workforce to track and manage their skills and training.

“The trial is an important step in supporting our workforce being recognised as highly trained and skilled in their roles, for professional drivers and the wider industry.”

Pre-sale for the Road Freight Resilience courses is open and courses will be delivered across the coming months. The full 10-course bundle is available for $99 and gives you access to the live and interactive webinar or watch later on-demand.
