It is a legal requirement that these companies have a Transport Emergency Response Plan (TERP) in place and that it is exercised on an annual basis. It is also necessary that staff who are involved in that plan have the appropriate training to undertake their role.

In response, Transport Industries Skills Centre Inc. (TISC) has developed a course that is designed to assist Dangerous Goods transport companies across Australia meet their legal obligations as well as enhancing their preparedness to respond to transport emergencies whatever the situation.

Although the final assessment is conducted in a group situation, we ensure the assessment is valid and fair by ensuring each student is assessed individually against each element of the assessment. Any students who are found to be ‘Not Yet Competent’ will be able to undertake a re-assessment at a later date and pay the associated fee.
