Load Restraint

This 1 day in depth load restraint training course covers the requirements of securing loads to utes, trucks, trailers, freight containers or any vehicle that transports goods by road in Western Australia.

The load restraint course is suitable for all vehicle drivers, freight handlers and company managers/supervisors in charge of transport operations.

One of the better training courses I've attended. The trainer was very knowledgeable & keen to assist any class member. I've attended many training courses in my 33 years of workplace service and the trainer would sit in the "Top 5" training presenters that I've had the benefit of training guidance from. Much appreciated.

Though having being tying down loads for over 45 years I learnt ways to improve this. The trainer showed a very good knowledge of the subject and answered any relevant questions when asked.

The best aspect of the course is just how relevant the course material is to my job. I am using what learnt on a daily basis. The trainer was awesome and very knowledgeable on the subject matter.
