The VTA has recently launched two new training programs to introduce new people to the transport industry and place them into permanent jobs.
The programs are supported by the Victorian Government and run in conjunction with Armstrong Driver Education and Logical Staffing Solutions, and are significantly subsidised so they can be offered at little or no cost to participants and employers.
VTA Cadetship Program 2019. The Victorian Transport Association (VTA) in conjunction with Victoria University is once again offering its highly-acclaimed VTA Cadetship Program in 2019.
This program is delivered through a unique blended learning program that matches young and motivated candidates with VTA transport companies and delivers a Certificate IV in Transport and Logistics qualification.
It is important to attract young people into our dynamic industry and this is one very positive way of achieving this goal. The VTA facilitates this pathway for candidates and its member organisations. Effective adult learning is very much about ensuring the program’s content is relevant and applicable to the ‘real’ world.
The benefits for employers include: reduced cost and financial support due to Government funding; VTA’s management of all administrative elements; the delivery of long term, hardworking and competent employees; and an opportunity to professionally develop either a new or an existing employee.

Driver Delivery is an intensive eight-day industry-ready driver licensing course to be delivered in either heavy rigid synchromesh or heavy combination standards. Over 60 hours of hands on training and instruction, drivers will receive advanced skills training covering OH&S, cabin drill, load restraint, loading docks, reversing and standard transport runs.
