Welcome to Shipping Australia Online Training Centre

Whether you are looking to take your first steps into a new career or if your business would benefit from employees gaining a better understanding of the shipping industry, Shipping Australia Limited's online training courses are a great starting point.

Shipping Australia have been delivering innovative online training since 2009 and now offer three online courses.

Chain of Responsibility NEW COURSE

Under the Heavy Vehicle National Law, everyone in the transport supply chain has a legal obligation to ensure breaches of road transport laws do not occur. This is called the 'Chain of Responsibility'. Chain of Responsibility training or CoR training is essential for employees with control over any heavy vehicle transport task.

This CoR training course is for operators, owners, managers, schedulers, brokers and freight forwarders, loaders, packers and drivers. It will provide you and your team with a firm understanding of everyone's responsibilities under the Chain of Responsibility, and the knowledge required to prevent breaches of mass, dimension, loading, speed and fatigue laws from occurring.

This Chain of Responsibility Awareness course is an introduction to Chain of Responsibility regulation and certification and a necessary step toward transport supply chain & logistics compliance.
