Is This The Training For You?

This course is for shunter operators just beginning their career or seeking upskilling in the Transport, Warehousing or Logistics sector. A shunter driver is responsible for manoeuvring vehicles around a yard into holding bays, storage areas and loading bays. Reversing is a high-risk activity in shunter operation due to the size of the vehicle. A Health and Safety Authority report found that reversing activity was involved in 11% of all fatal workplace transport accidents. All shunter drivers are required to hold a minimum of a Category B licence. This training provides the qualification to operate a yard shunter in a safe and competent manner under the guidance of one of our RSA Approved Driving Instructors.

Topics covered include:

  • Understanding vehicle controls and vehicle checks procedures
  • Coupling and uncoupling
  • Reversing, loading and unloading
