The Transport and Logistics (TLI) Industry Reference Committee (IRC) have recommended that a national apprenticeship be established utilising the existing Certificate III in Driving Operations (TLI 31221). During consultation over September to October 2021 the TLI IRC noted the apprenticeship will not be a panacea to resolving the significant ongoing skills shortages however they believe the apprenticeship will assist in professionalising the industry. The high level of feedback will provide insight into the next steps to establish the apprenticeship pathway, including reviewing the suitability of the pathway for Dangerous Goods and Bus and Coach Drivers.
Thank you to all those who provided their feedback to the LDSC and the AIS. Watch this space for further updates on the development of the apprenticeship including opportunities for involvement in consultations.
