NZ Certificate in Study and Career Preparation – Commercial Transport Level 3

Whenua Kura is offering this 16 week full-time programme in partnership with AMS Group. This is a great qualification for anyone looking at entering an industry where light, heavy and civil transport assets are used, and to further progress onto the larger vehicle assets at the higher licence class levels. A commercial transport license gives you:
• Choices – a wide and diverse range of career options
• Opportunities – the potential to run your own business
• Regular income

New Zealand has a shortage of qualified commercial drivers – You can be part of the solution.

The programme will be run at a number of locations around the country throughout 2019 and is FREE.
