The trainers at site skills were very knowledgeable and worked with the guys that were finding it hard. We had Kurt and he was very hands on and took his time to explain and go through parts that seem difficult at first but got easier as we kept doing the revision. Top notch.

Overview

This operate vehicles in the field course includes the theoretical and practical components to meet the skills and knowledge required to operate vehicles and related equipment to patrol pipelines or otherwise drive across a variety of terrains.

In a typical scenario an operations technician patrols areas of pipeline or follows pipelines across a variety of terrains looking for problems which require maintenance or reporting, or drives to remote facilities. During the course of their work they must check the vehicle for mechanical soundness before leaving base, ensure it is securely and adequately packed, make certain their communications equipment and contact schedule are in order and generally be prepared for long periods off-road.

Participants will gain the following skills and knowledge:

  • Preparing the vehicle and securing any loads
  • Undertaking the journey and operating the vehicle
  • Recovering the vehicle and maintaining vehicle safety

Training and assessment is conducted at Site Skills Training facilities. Upon arrangement, training and assessment can be conducted at the premises of industry clients providing there are suitable industry training facilities.

Please be advised that one of the units of competency in this package was superseded in September 2020. Site Skills Training will continue to train and assess the superseded unit of competency until the transition end date.
