Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 1. This is the first release of this unit of competency in the TLI Transport and Logistics Training Package.

Application

This unit involves the skills and knowledge required for higher-order safe motorcycle riding. This unit applies to motorcycle riders required to apply safe riding behaviours.

This includes higher-order skills involving broad cognitive, technical, communication and motorcycle management. It also requires knowledge about hazard perception, risk control and safe riding behaviour, judgement, decision making and multi-tasking that builds on rider licence requirements across a range of motorcycles and riding situations.

Safe riding behaviours are applied without supervision.

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.

Pre-requisite Unit

Not applicable.

Competency Field

C – Vehicle Operation

Unit Sector

Not applicable.
