PBS Mas­ter­class in Vic

Big Rigs - - INDUSTRY NEWS -

FOL­LOW­ING the suc­cess of HVIA Train­ing’s first PBS Mas­ter­class ear­lier this year, the course will be rolled out across Aus­tralia.

The next ses­sion will be held in HVIA’s South­ern Re­gion on Friday, Novem­ber 3.

The Per­for­mance Based Stan­dards train­ing is de­liv­ered for HVIA by Ad­van­tia Trans­port Con­sult­ing.

Chief ex­ec­u­tive Brett Wright said the PBS Mas­ter­class fills a void for en­gi­neers, man­age­ment and sales staff of truck, trailer and body man­u­fac­tur­ers and deal­ers, as well as op­er­a­tors of PBS ve­hi­cles.

“The PBS scheme al­lows in­no­va­tive en­gi­neer­ing to achieve much greater pro­duc­tiv­ity from trail­ers, with even greater safety bench­marks,” Mr Wright said.

Course pre­sen­ter Rob Di Cristo­foro is a 20-year vet­eran of heavy ve­hi­cle in­dus­try en­gi­neer­ing, reg­u­la­tory pol­icy and con­sult­ing.

Mr Di Cristo­foro founded Ad­van­tia Trans­port Con­sult­ing in 2008 to work with the road trans­port in­dus­try and gov­ern­ment agen­cies to im­prove heavy ve­hi­cle pro­duc­tiv­ity and safety out­comes.

“There has been a lack of prac­ti­cal, us­able, real-world in­for­ma­tion avail­able re­gard­ing the PBS scheme,” Mr Di Cristo­foro said.

“We have de­signed this one-day course to help man­u­fac­tur­ers, deal­ers and end-users un­der­stand what can be achieved, and how to go about it.

“The mas­ter­class will pro­vide de­tailed in­sights into the op­por­tu­ni­ties of­fered by the PBS scheme.

“We’ll then walk par­tic­i­pants through the pro­cess of get­ting ve­hi­cles from con­cept onto the road, achieving great pro­duc­tiv­ity ben­e­fits.”

The mas­ter­class will be held at Ad­van­tia Trans­port Con­sult­ing in Bun­doora on Friday, Novem­ber 3. The class will run from 8.30am-4pm.
