ABOUT THIS COURSE

Becoming a route bus driver within the Public Transport or Private Transport Industry is an incredibly rewarding career. Interacting with regular clients, delivering people to their destinations and enjoying variety in your daily job are all part of the advantages of becoming a bus driver.

Getting your job interview correct, including an impressive pre-employment drive assessment, will be of paramount importance to landing that new job. The Intelligent Training Solutions Bus VOC (Verification of Competence) course will help you achieve your goal. Training is conducted in a full-scale Mercedes Volgreen ex-PTV bus with male and female driving instructors who actively remain employed as public and private bus drivers. This course will provide you with the training and job insights required to join the industry successfully. Learn the skills and knowledge of public and private bus driving from those successful employed in the industry and turn your existing heavy vehicle licence into something special.

This bus VOC training course is aimed at new and experienced medium rigid and heavy rigid vehicle drivers who wish to transfer their skills and knowledge to drive a commercial or privately operated Bus and is also suitable for school bus drivers, school administrators and educators taking students on excursions, community group leaders, sports team managers or anybody wishing to drive a medium or full-sized bus or coach.

The working conditions of a Bus driver in Victoria are second to none. If you’re looking for a career with industry-leading work conditions, it might be time to get on board. As a full-time bus driver, you will receive:*

✓ 4 weeks annual leave
✓ Rostered days off
✓ Paid Sick Leave
✓ Workcover Entitlements
✓ Superannuation

CANCELLATION POLICY

We have a general set of terms and conditions, which can be viewed here: ENROLMENT TERMS AND CONDITIONS.

To summarise our cancellation and refund terms and conditions, in short, We are unable to refund monies for students who do not turn up for class. Course fees will not be refunded for cancellations received within eight working days of your course commencement date. The reason for this is that Intelligent Training Solutions has already secured the trainer, training vehicle, time with the training venue, course resources and any printed materials for your attendance on the course; therefore, your enrolment has been taken into account during this preparation stage so course fees WILL NOT be refunded.

Any student who enrols in a course less than eight days from the proposed course commencement date will not receive a refund in accordance with Clause 4.3.

PLEASE decide carefully when enrolling in a course with less than eight days between your enrolment and the commencement of the course. Intelligent Training Solutions does not have a cooling-off period for this course. Once your enrolment is processed, all payments made are non-refundable.

NOTE: WITHDRAWING FROM THE COURSE AT THIS STAGE WILL RESULT IN A VACANT POSITION WITHIN THE COURSE AND WILL DEPRIVE INTELLIGENT TRAINING SOLUTIONS AND THE COURSE OF THE REVENUE IT WOULD PROVIDE.
