Safe and efficient heavy vehicle driving
NorthTec’s certificated heavy vehicle driver training courses give employers the confidence that their operations are being carried out efficiently, safely and within the requirements of industry best practice standards and New Zealand law.
NorthTec’s driver trainers are qualified driving instructors, ITO accredited assessors and NZTA approved providers. This coupled with their extensive industry experience, enables our trainers to provide training that meets the requirements of National Unit Standards. They also pass on their own experiences and knowledge to the trainee drivers allowing for a greater learning experience and outcome.
Collaboration with industry
We design and carry out our training activities in collaboration with industry organisations to reduce impact on daily operations while still ensuring professional training standards are maintained.
Training includes safe driving traffic law, health and safety relating to heavy vehicles, heavy vehicle driving skills, heavy vehicle dynamics, risk reduction, safe driving strategies, vehicle systems and components, loading procedures and restraint systems, log book and fatigue management, and fuel efficient driving.
Both practical and theoretical assessments are made throughout the training period.
