WA Government approved Certificate IV in Transport & Logistics(Road Transport Heavy Vehicle Driving Instruction)

The certificate IV in Transport & Logistics (Road Transport Heavy Vehicle Driving Instruction) is the current qualification required by the WA Department of Transport in lieu of the practical and theory assessment required as part of the driver instructor licence application

Course Framework
  • 1 – 2-week intensive practical and theoretical session
  • 3 major assignments
  • Instructional sessions
  • Practical Experience

Working with a qualified heavy vehicle driving instructor, this course will teach you the fundamentals of taking your car driving instruction to the next level. Through both theoretical and practical sessions, this course will provide training on how to use the DOT Practical Driver Assessment form, in order for you to be able to prepare your students for assessment. Be prepared to put in extra hours at home during the course, as there will be homework most evenings.

During the course, you will be given instruction in how people learn, and use Bloom’s Taxonomy to differentiate between learning styles. We will give you tips on working
within the industry, insurance costs, how to teach using dual controls and the cost to fit, your OH&S requirements, heavy vehicle road laws and requirements.

Course Specifics

Courses are held on a regular basis throughout the year, with a new course starting on average every 2 weeks. This certificate is a competency based course and therefore the course duration is student based learning and is run until competency is achieved. The course has XXX theory days interspersed with XXX practical days followed by a practical assessment day. With prior arrangement courses can be scheduled out of normal working hours, but this will generally be for groups of three or more people, and higher
fees may apply.
