For the purpose of operating under the National Heavy Vehicle Accreditation Scheme (NHVAS) fatigue management module, operators may need their drivers, schedulers, and supervisors or managers of drivers or schedulers, to complete fatigue units of competency offered by Registered Training Organisations (RTOs).
New fatigue units of competency
From 1 July 2018, new fatigue units of competency will come into effect.
The new fatigue units of competency, published in May 2017 by Australian Industry Standards (AIS), provide drivers, schedulers, supervisors and managers with information critical to effectively manage the risk of fatigue in road transport operations.
The new fatigue units are:
- TLIF0005 - Apply a fatigue risk management system (replaces unit TLIF2010)
- TLIF0006 - Administer a fatigue risk management system (replaces unit TLIF3063)
- TLIF0007 - Manage a fatigue risk management system (optional)
NHVR approved Registered Training Organisations (RTOs)
NHVR approved Registered Training Organisation application (PDF, 169KB) - RTOs seeking to deliver and assess fatigue management courses TLIF0005, TLIF0006 & TLIF0007 for NHVAS accreditation purposes must first be approved by the NHVR.
For more information on providing these units of competency please read the Fatigue units of competency - RTO guide (PDF, 228KB).

The NHVR will continue to recognise qualifications in TLIF2010 and TLIF3063 for NHVAS purposes if they have a completion date prior to 1 July 2018.
