CoR Nationally Recognised Training Explained
The provision of nationally recognised CoR training to responsible people within an organisation is an essential component of a Reasonable Steps Defence. Ignorance of responsibilities under CoR is not a valid defence to a prosecution.
Providing nationally recognised training released by the Transport & Logistics Industry Skills Council (TLISC), through a RTO, is one of the reasonable steps you can take to protect your business.
Not providing readily available nationally recognised training can be seen as not taking steps that you could have been reasonably been expected to take.
The TLISC has released a number of official training modules to address CoR Awareness and the target areas under the law. These modules are aimed at different organisational levels, to ensure the right people have access to the relevant information.
