Enterprise Registered Training Organisation 51112

Incorporating competence-based delivery and assessment, our training programs comprise on-the-job training, workshops and classroom learning. All programs are delivered through Otraco’s Enterprise Registered Training Organisation 51112.

Conforming to the requirement of the Standard for RTO’s 2015 (ASQA), our experienced trainers and assessors work with tyre technicians, teaching them specialised skills and attributes to allow them to work safely and efficiently. Training is based on international best practise, resulting in improved productivity, machine availability and lower maintenance costs.
