TLIF0005 – Apply a fatigue risk management system

Fatigue is a reality for all professional truck & heavy vehicle drivers, and poor fatigue management can cause serious accidents, injuries, and potential loss of life. The TLIF0005 Apply a fatigue risk management system course provides heavy vehicle operators with the expertise to effectively manage fatigue and work safely in the Transport and Logistics industry.

Fatigue management course

The TLIF0005 course includes strategies for fatigue risk management, and also trains participants to identify and act on the signs of fatigue and operate within an established fatigue management system. The course also covers strategies to minimise fatigue, and compliance with work and rest limits. Students will also develop their skills in planning and navigating their journey, and maintaining appropriate records.

The course is delivered by one of our expert trainers and provides a supportive team environment in which to learn.

Why do I need fatigue risk management training?

Quite apart from the official requirements of the role, being a heavy vehicle operator can be a demanding role. Long hours and significant travel time may be required, often at unusual hours. Fatigue is a real and present danger in such roles and has statistically been the cause of countless accidents and loss of life in the past. While part of the responsibility for heavy vehicle driver safety rests on management, there is also a responsibility on drivers and vehicle operators to ensure they are managing fatigue well and minimising risks.

Our TLIF0005 course provides the skills and understanding you’ll need to keep yourself and others safe by working within an established fatigue management system.

Driver accreditation

Completing Driver Training Pro’s fatigue risk management system course will provide you will certification in the official TLIF0005 Apply a fatigue risk management system training module. This is a nationally recognised module defined by the National Register on Vocational Education and Training. Driver Training Pro is an official Australian RTO, and our TLIF0005 is nationally recognised throughout all Australian states and territories.

What’s covered in the course?

The TLIF0005 training course covers the following topics:

  • Identify and manage fatigue risk in the road transport sector
  • Operate within a road transport fatigue risk management system
  • Plan and navigate a heavy vehicle trip
  • Comply with work and rest hours
  • Update and maintain records

Students will need to demonstrate competence in each of these areas to complete the course successfully.

Fatigue management policy

TLIF0005 is currently a mandated requirement for any heavy vehicle operator working under the National Heavy Vehicle Law (NHVL) and the National Heavy Vehicle Accreditation Scheme (NHVAS). It’s needed by both bus and truck drivers working within an accredited Basic Fatigue Management or Advanced Fatigue Management system (BFM or AFM), or through the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR).

Driver Training Pro’s TLIF0005 Apply a fatigue risk management system course is fully compliant with these professional requirements.

Course Times

Our TLIF0005 training is delivered as a single, face-to-face seminar over the course of five hours – generally from 9am till 2pm. You’ll want to arrive at least 15 minutes early where possible, as the doors will be closed and sealed at the scheduled start time. Latecomers will need to contact us to reschedule.

Same day certificate

Once you’ve successfully completed your training, you’ll receive your TLIF0005 Apply a fatigue risk management system within 24 hours of the end of the course – often within the same day. The certificate is provided in digital format and can be printed, stored on computer, or emailed to prospective (or current) employers as you require. The certificate will also be available for download from your online student portal.

USI Requirements

As of 2015, all students undertaking formal training in Australia are required to provide a valid USI, or “Unique Student Identifier” number. This number is an official form of identification provided by the government – rather like a tax file number – and used to track all formal training you have taken part in or completed within Australia. Driver Training Pro can’t provide this number for you.

If you don’t have a USI, the process to get one is quite straightforward, and should only take a few minutes. Simply head to the USI website and click the “Click here to get your USI” button to get started.

Covid 19 Compliance

Driver Training Pro works hard to ensure its students’ safety and welfare. Our training carefully follows the current government recommendations for social distancing, PPE (such as masks and hand sanitiser), and vaccination requirements. Students must follow all written and verbal instructions around Covid safety or they may be asked to leave.

If you are feeling unwell or experiencing Covid-like symptoms on the day of your training, we ask that you do not attend. If you contact our office to notify us of the situation, we can generally reschedule your training to another date at no additional cost.

If you are not vaccinated against Covid-19, we recommend that you check the vaccination requirements of your training venue before attending, as many public venues now require patrons to be fully vaccinated. This is a requirement of the venue (generally according to government regulations) and beyond the ability of Driver Training Pro to control.
