TLI Electric Heavy Vehicle Project

Project Scope

This project will develop two new Units of Competency (Operate Electric Heavy Vehicle and Operate Electric Bus) and new Skill Sets to provide workers the required skills and knowledge for working with and operating electric bus or heavy vehicle. The road transport industry is experiencing rapid growth in the manufacture and use of electric heavy vehicles, particularly in the bus and coach sector, and training products are now required to enable these vehicles to be operated efficiently and safely.

 

Discussions with bus and heavy vehicle transport operators identified that while the current number of electric vehicles is comparatively small, the growth expected will lead to an increasing demand for appropriately skilled drivers to operate these vehicles.  The stakeholders identified that future growth of electric heavy vehicles will leave critical knowledge and procedural skill gaps for heavy vehicle drivers that transition to these vehicles. One of the key differences for the operator between fossil powered heavy vehicles and battery powered is that battery vehicles are silent so there are no tell-tale signs the vehicle is not operating correctly as there are with fossil fuelled vehicles.

TAC ESTABLISHED

 

The Transport and Logistics Industry Reference Committee has established a Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) for this project.  

 

Comprising of 17 subject matter experts from Industry, RTOs, regulators, and peak bodies, the TAC has been tasked with: 

  • Providing specialist industry subject-matter knowledge for the Electric Heavy Vehicle project in the development of Units of Competency and Skill Sets 
  • Validating the technical content of the Training Package products 
  • Identifying relevant qualitative and quantitative data sources to inform the development of draft materials 
  • Reviewing feedback from stakeholders through public consultations 
  • Assisting in identifying and engaging broader industry networks to participate in consultation and/or validation activities during the duration of the project 
  • Offering advice and guidance to assist in informing the direction of the project throughout its duration 
  • Making recommendations on the developed Training Package materials to the relevant IRC, which has the final decision-making authority. 

 

The first meeting of the TAC is scheduled for 15th February 2022.

SUBJECT MATTER EXPERTS NEEDED

 

The Electric Heavy Vehicle project has commenced and the Transport and Logistics Industry Reference Committee is forming a Technical Advisory Committee.

 

Your industry expertise and insight are welcome to help review and develop Training Package materials, including the development of two new Units of Competency and new Skill Sets to address the required skills and knowledge for operating an electric bus or heavy vehicle. The road transport industry is experiencing rapid growth in the manufacture and use of electric heavy vehicles, particularly in the bus and coach sector, and training products are now required to enable these vehicles to be operated efficiently and safely.

 

The first Technical Advisory Committee meeting is scheduled for Tuesday 15 February 2022.

 

Registrations to become a TAC member closed 25 January 2022.

Consultation

16 FEBRUARY 2022

DRAFT MATERIAL

 

On behalf of the Transport and Logistics Industry Reference Committee, its Technical Advisory Committee has drafted Training Package materials for the Electric Heavy Vehicle project including two new Units of Competency and would like your feedback.

 

The draft materials address the required skills and knowledge for operating a battery electric bus or heavy vehicle. The road transport industry is experiencing rapid growth in the use of electric heavy vehicles, particularly in the bus and coach sector, and training products are now required to enable these vehicles to be operated efficiently and safely.

 

Feedback closed Friday, 18 March 2022.

 

Feedback will be collated and discussed at the next TAC meeting.

Quality Assurance
