Strategic Purpose Statement
This qualification is for people who work in the commercial road transport industry and who require a Class 4 or Class 5 driver licence to drive goods service vehicles. It shares some compulsory standards with the National Certificate in Goods Service (Core Skills) with optional strands in Dangerous Goods, and Forklifts [Ref: 1227]. It can therefore build on the content of that qualification or be achieved independently.

The core compulsory standards ensure that the driver has the skills and knowledge to:
. identify and respond to hazards;
. select and record routes;
. prepare a heavy motor vehicle for use; and
. load, drive, and unload a goods service vehicle safely.

The elective strands allow candidates to choose standards for either heavy rigid (Class 4) or heavy combination (Class 5) vehicles, and then supplement those skills from a wide range of standards that reflect the diverse roles that exist for heavy motor vehicle drivers.

People who complete the core compulsory standards and one of the elective strands may then choose to complete one of the optional strands. The optional strands are designed to recognise the specific skills required to transport bulk dangerous goods, livestock, and perishable products by road.

This qualification provides a pathway to higher level national certificates including the National Certificate in Road Transport Management (Operations) (Level 4) [Ref: 1209] and the National Diploma in Road Transport Management [Ref: 0961].
