Armstrongs has developed and delivered training and assessment for the Transport & Logistics industry for over 50 years. Armstrongs is a Registered Training Office (RTO) and a VicRoads accredited heavy vehicle and motorcycle training and assessment centre working under the Australian Quality Training Framework (AQTF). Armstrongs is also WorkSafe accredited to deliver forklift licence training and testing.
Armstrongs believes that its students should have access to a training environment and facilities that promote and support their training experience. Armstrongs training services are conducted at a purpose built training facility in Thomastown, Victoria. The Armstrongs facility is situated on 10,000 square meters, and includes a purpose built heavy vehicle reversing area catering for all classes of heavy vehicle; an in-situ designated heavy vehicle solely for the purposes of conducting off-road skills (such as cabin drill, vehicle inspection, and secure cargo); and a designated forklift training area. Armstrongs training vehicles are also specifically selected to meet current skills demands and reflect industry standards. Armstrongs is also home to the only purpose built twin motor cycle range in Victoria.
Armstrongs' licencing courses are designed to provide students with skills and knowledge that exceed the minimum standards required to obtain a heavy vehicle licence. In addition, Armstrongs' licencing courses are designed to provide the student with as much practical experience as possible in order to further develop and consolidate their skills.
Armstrongs regularly conducts research and industry consultation into the required skills of a driver and how these competencies can be achieved. Armstrongs training services come with the added value of our reputation and standing. Students also get the benefit of the extensive and varied experience of our trainers. Students who undertake training at Armstrongs can be confident that they will achieve a high standard of skills and knowledge.
Armstrongs fleet of industry standard vehicles means that students have an array of vehicles and gearbox transmissions to select from. This enables students to learn in vehicles that will best reflect the vehicles that they will operate when working in the industry.
All vehicles have been specially modified for training purposes and are fitted with a dual braking system and on-board camera.
Armstrongs trainers are VicRoads and WorkSafe accredited and hold a TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment and the TLI31210 Certificate III in Driving Operations. Armstrongs trainers have industry experience relevant to the qualification they train.
