Chain of Responsibility (CoR) Training covers all areas of Legislation which extends the general liability for offences to road freight consignors, receivers, packers and loaders. The CoR courses cover general awareness for staff who work in the supply chain through to their direct reports.  For Executives and Managers, CoR Australia provides a training solution that delivers content to be integrated with your existing OHS solution or that can operate on a standalone basis.

The Chain of Responsibility TLIF0001, TLIF0002 and TLIF0003 Programs are used by the Australian Logistics Members across Australia and are recognised for Professional Development Points by the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport in Australia.


Our Programs are Award Winning and have been peer reviewed by our Partners  to ensure supply chain partners and supply chain solutions meet the risk, costs and compliance requirements consistent with available control measures and Regulatory requirements.

We offer six modes of delivery for programs to participants.
