Specialised Courses

TISC provides a wide range of specialised and custom courses covering the transport and plant machinery.

Transport Emergency Response

Current regulatory requirements set out in Australian Dangerous Goods (DG) legislation place clear obligations on companies that transport dangerous goods.

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, TISC has developed a nationally recognised accredited course which is designed to assisting DG transport companies across Australia meet their legal obligations as well as enhancing their preparedness to respond to transport emergencies whatever the situation.

The program has the full support of DG industry peek bodies such as Canberra Regions Oil Industry Emergency Response Group (CROIERG) , the National Bulk Tanker Association (NBTA) state Emergency Service agencies as well as the Australasian Fire and Emergency Service Authorities Council (AFAC).
