Revision of Heavy Haulage qualification


National Certificate in Heavy Haulage (Class 1 Pilot) [Ref: 1353]


Tranzqual ITO has revised the qualification listed above.


Date new version published                                                             January 2011


The next qualification review is planned to take place during 2012.


Reason for the revision


Industry feedback indicated that standard 19498 was not meeting the needs of a load pilot working within the heavy haulage sector and is seen as a potential barrier to completion.  The feedback and subsequent industry consultation indicated that standard 23849 fell within the skill set of a load pilot and should be included in the compulsory set of the qualification.


The ITO also took the opportunity to correct an error in the elective credit requirements, amend the credit range table, and update the title and credit total for standard 3490.


Main changes resulting from the revision


·         Standard 19498 removed from the compulsory set.

·         Standard 23894 added to the compulsory set.

·         Title and credit value for standard 3490 updated.

·         Elective credit rule amended.

·         Credit range table amended.




The qualification has never been awarded and Tranzqual ITO is not aware of any existing candidates.  The error in the elective rule meant that candidates could be awarded with the certificate without meeting the requirements for a Level 3 qualification.  Therefore, the last date for assessment of version 1 is 31 January 2011.
