Government subsidised truck training for individuals and businessesA number of programs are operated by state governments throughout Australia in collaboration with driver training centres, which work with individuals of various backgrounds as well as small-to-medium-sized businesses. Such programs have enabled many men and women to make rewarding career changes. You will need to check your eligibility for government subsidies before applying, which are dependent on factors such as age, citizenship or residency, driving experience and prior educational history. The Victorian Training Guarantee offers subsidised places for people of any age but is dependant on their previous qualifications.
What do government subsidised truck training courses cover?When you or your employees enrol in truck courses, you will learn valuable practical and theoretical skills in training exercises and classroom environments. Courses cover aspects of truck driving such as driver safety, technical skills as well as the importance of having the right type of licence. You should check that your driver course will lead to you obtaining the specific licence you desire, from light rigid to multi-combination vehicles or forklifts and other industrial machinery.
My staff may require multiple course. Can government subsidised training course help?Training courses are designed to meet the individuals and businesses needs. The government subsidies should be used to help fund the main portion of the costs, however, you will need to contribute to the overall costs. With that stated, the Victorian government will allow individuals to enrol into 2 subsidised courses per calendar year.
