Get Trucking – Heavy Trucks

Course overview

Want to ‘hit the highway’ driving semi-trailers or B-doubles? 
You’ll need more than a driver’s licence – most employers are looking for experience.  But how do you get it?

This course is a complete range of skills, knowledge and real experience to get you into heavy truck jobs in the industry.

Participants will undergo a complete truck driving training program to be ready for many industry jobs. We also work with you and our partner employers to help you find that first job. The majority of our course graduates are in employment within 3 months of completing the course.

Best of all, this course can be subsidised by the South Australian Government so you don’t pay the full fees – depending on availability and eligibility.
