Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 2 . This is the second release of this unit of competency in the TLI Transport and Logistics Training Package:

  • Minor statement changes in Assessment Conditions.

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 to teach heavy vehicle learner drivers from diverse backgrounds how to prepare, explain, demonstrate, monitor and maintain safe heavy vehicle driving skills. This unit applies to heavy vehicle driving instructors.

It includes preparing a learner for driving, explaining driver training outcomes, demonstrating required skills, monitoring and maintaining safe driving skills, interpreting and applying road rules, debriefing learner driver, identifying hazardous situations and implementing contingency plans.

Work is performed without supervision. Heavy vehicle learner driver training involves the application of adult learning principles, instructional methods, training competence and experience, higher-order heavy vehicle driving expertise, navigation skills, road law expertise, routine procedures and regulatory requirements across a range of operational situations and a variety of driving contexts.

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