AWFTC has been operating since 1999. For the past 20 years, the owner of AWFTC, Mark Hobden, has been training people in the private sector in warehousing lifting equipment. Prior to opening AWFTC, Mark was involved in heavy vehicle and warehouse training for the Australian Army. Mark decided to open his own training centre as he believes that he could provide quality training solutions to individuals, groups and companies incorporating his vast knowledge and commitment to industry training. AWFTC has since grown to include one large operating site with a warehouse, 12 heavy vehicles, 4 trailers, 1 bus, 4 forklifts, 2 stock pickers and 21 employees.
AWFTC is to provide quality transport and warehouse training and assessment services that allows individuals to experience learning success, to like learning and become contributing members of the transport and warehousing industry.
AWFTC Pty. Ltd trades as:
- AWFTC Pty Ltd: providing Scissor Lift and WorkSafe approved Forklift, Order Picker and Elevated Work Platform training for individuals, groups and companies within Melbourne.
- Advanced Heavy Vehicle Driver Training Centre (AHVDTC) accredited by VicRoads to provide Heavy Vehicle Licensing
AWFTC currently operates in Tullamarine while utilising a reversing range at McGregor Portables in Butler Way, Keilor Park.
AWFTC delivers quality training and assessment to people so they can work safely, correctly and efficiently, not just to pass assessment. AWFTC can customise and deliver training/assessment services at its Melbourne training facilities, or onsite to suit individual company needs.
Refresher courses are also offered for heavy vehicles and for HRW licenses to ensure individuals can maintain their vocational industry skills.
