Saturday practical training is only available directly with Watto Training from 114 Sutton Street, Redcliffe.


The timeline for each student varies. Some students will complete the course over a 2 year period, whereas other students, will complete the course in a more intense manner over a matter of weeks. It depends on a number of factors that each trainee needs to consider including:

  • Ability to pay for the course (ie some trainees pay over time)
  • Ability to have the time and space to complete assignments
  • Work/family commitments
  • Ability to attend training sessions
  • Reading/Writing ability (in relation to completing assignments)
  • Prior knowledge and experience
  • Relevant qualifications leading to credit of units previously completed in other courses

Q: I have prior experience/qualifications, is this taken into account?

A: It can be taken into account but it depends on a number of factors such as type and length of experience, qualifications – when completed and relevance to this course, and so on. Watto Training is happy to discuss pathway options for applicants who may already hold knowledge, skills and qualifications from previous/current fields of work. In such cases the applicant may be eligible for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL).

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a process that allows the competencies you already possess to be recognised, regardless of how you obtained them. These might include skills you picked up on the job or from other life experiences that do not necessarily include formal training.

  • Recognition of prior learning suits people who have industry relevant:
  • work skills or knowledge
  • paid or unpaid work experience
  • life experience
  • community work experience

Recognition of prior learning could provide you with a full or part qualification, and avoid duplication of training. It could be used to identify what training you may need to complete a qualification or could provide a pathway to higher qualifications for people who may not have access to further training.

Your RPL Assessor can discuss evidence you will need to supply with your application if you wish to have your experience recognised. In many cases, RPL will only give the off-the-job component of the unit. You may still need to meet the on-the-job component, assessed at work.

Credit transfer

Credit transfer recognises previous formal learning (e.g. university, other qualifications). It uses an assessment of a previous course or subject that an applicant has achieved to determine whether it can be credited to the new course in which the applicant wishes to enrol.

The assessment determines the extent to which your previous course or subject is equivalent to the required learning outcomes of the desired qualification.

Q: What is a Portfolio of Evidence?

A: Typical portfolio items are listed below. In each case, the evidence must be your own work and directly relate to the knowledge and skills described by the unit of competence you are seeking RPL for.

Suitable portfolio items to choose from include:
  • Samples, photographs or videos of your work
  • Letters of validation from your employers
  • On-the-job assessment record
  • Performance management report
  • Video footage of you doing tasks directly related to the unit of competence
  • Copies of documents you have completed as part of your work eg budgets, reports, memos, spreadsheets, estimates etc.
  • Certified certificates from accredited vocational education and training courses
  • Certified results from other non-credited courses from various education and training providers
  • Certified certificates and statements of attainment from in-house courses sponsored by employers or professional bodies
  • Letters from employers verifying your knowledge, skill and experience
  • Letters from clients, verifying work done
  • Details of community activities involving significant responsibilities
  • Records of workplace activities

Q: What are the entry requirements for the instructor training courses?

Motorcycle Applicant Requirements

Watto Training reserves the right to refuse course entry if the applicant’s riding standard is not at the required level. If such a situation did occur, the applicant would be more than welcome to reapply if gaps in riding ability were addressed, eg the rider goes away and gets more training and/or does a lot more hours on the motorcycle to build up their skill and experience. We can’t have a situation whereby the trainer rides at a standard lower than the course participants. Your riding standard MUST be of a high standard upon entry. This is not a refresher rider course, this is a rider trainer/assessor course for highly competent riders with a passion for motorcycles, riding and people.

Other entry requirements are as follows:

Applicants must produce photo identification.

Applicants must undergo a Police history check, a driving history check & a medical check (if required). These checks are completed by the Queensland Transport and Main Roads Department. Queensland Transport and Main Roads may refuse to grant accreditation to a person who has been convicted of an offence under the Criminal Code or is currently charged with an offence under the Criminal Code and the charge has not been fully disposed of.

The requirements for driver trainer accreditation fall within the Transport Operations (Road Use Management – Accreditation and Other Provisions) Regulation 2015 (2015 Regulation). 

The changes incorporated in the 2015 Regulation are detailed below.

Driver licence requirements

Currently to apply to become an accredited driver trainer an applicant must hold or have held for at least 1 year an ‘O’ type licence (open driver licence) authorising the applicant to drive the class of motor vehicle stated in the application as the class of motor vehicle for which the applicant proposes to give training.

An ‘O’ type licence means an open driver licence granted outside Queensland.
This requirement has been changed to a person has the necessary expertise to be accredited to perform the function of a driver trainer, for a class of motor vehicle, if the person holds and has held, on the day the application is made for a continuous period of at least 1 year, a valid open licence authorising the person to drive the class of motor vehicle. This includes a valid interstate driver licence or a valid driver licence granted in New Zealand.

A valid licence means a licence that is not expired, suspended or cancelled and the licensee is not disqualified by an Australian court from holding or obtaining a driver licence.

You can submit a traffic history checks with TMR to see if your history will be an issue. In my time of doing this job, it’s normally issues within the last 5 years that seem to have an impact on eligibility. However, the best way to be sure is to check with TMR as they require a criminal history check off every trainer coming into the industry.

Q: I haven’t studied for a while. Will I be able to succeed?

A: As an adult learner, you

  • tend to be self-directed
  • have a rich reservoir of experience that can serve as a resource for learning
  • are frequently affected by your need to know or do something
  • tend to have a life-, task-, or problem-centered orientation to learning as opposed to a subject-matter orientation
  • are generally motivated to learn from within (internally/intrinsically)as opposed to being obligated, or subject to, external or extrinsic forces

Computer Literacy

You need to have a basic knowledge of computer and Internet skills in order to be successful in this course. Here are some of the highlights:

  • Knowledge of terminology, such as browserdownload, etc.
  • Understanding of basic computer hardware and software; ability to perform computer operations, such as:
    • Using keyboard and mouse
    • Managing files and folders: save, name, copy, move, backup, rename, delete, check properties
    • Software installation, security and virus protection
    • Using software applications, such as Word, PowerPoint, Excel, email clients
    • Knowledge of copying and pasting, spell-checking, saving files in different formats
    • Sending and downloading attachments
  • Internet skills (connecting, accessing, using browsers) and ability to perform online research using various search engines and library databases.
  • Ability to use online communication tools, such as email (create, send, receive, reply, print, send/receive attachments), discussion boards (read, search, post, reply, follow threads), chats, and messengers.

Strong reading and writing skills

You need to have strong reading skills and be able to communicate effectively through writing. Most of the material in the online environment will come from your textbooks and written lectures, therefore strong reading and critical thinking skills are very important for success in an online course.

Self-motivated and independent learner

While correspondence courses can offer more flexibility in scheduling, they require more self-discipline and independence than face to face courses. Some students can find this uncomfortable and not suitable for their learning style. They may miss face-to-face interaction with an instructor and peers, which helps to keep them on track. In the online / home study environment, you have to be able to start and to work on tasks on your own, without someone keeping you focused, and you have to be self-disciplined in order to follow the class schedule and meet deadlines.

Time commitment

Online/home study classes take as much time as regular face to face classes. You need to set aside sufficient time for study. Plan to spend at least as much time working on the assignments and studying as you would with a traditional course.

If you need help, please don’t hesitate to ask. We’re here to help.

LLN Requirements

For Watto Training courses, a sound understanding of English, as well as basic English speaking, reading and writing skills, are required. Further, applicants must have basic mathematical skills.

Enrolment Application Forms include specific questions about educational experience and academic skills and the need for LLN support.

Pre‐Enrolment Short LLN Diagnostic Test in Reading and Numeracy is integrated into the Course Application Process. If a potential student has not completed any formal academic qualifications (e.g. Year 12 for the diploma or advanced diploma) and other entry requirements, they will be directed to complete a short LLN diagnostic test in Reading and Numeracy (free of charge). Potential students who have completed the formal academic qualifications may also complete the test but this is not compulsory for them.

If a student does not achieve the recommended ACSF level for the course in Reading and/or Literacy, Watto Training will advise them of this and discuss other study options with them.

ART Training Requirements

Part of the new Q-Ride system (from October 1, 2016) is the process in which Q-Ride trainers (known as accredited rider trainers or ARTs) are inducted/trained to be eligible to deliver the new system.

Each Registered Service Providers (RSPs) has a SENIOR TRAINER who is seen as having the necessary experience to deliver the new curriculum training.

The role of the Senior Trainer extends to delivering the curriculum training to a person who is in the process of becoming an accredited rider trainer.

A Certificate of Completion is required to be held by a new applicant to become an ART in the new Q-Ride curriculum with a SENIOR TRAINER as well as the necessary qualifications (TLI41310 plus TAE40110 or TAEASS401B and TAEASS402B). These need to be then presented to TMR.

Before a Senior Trainer delivers training to an ART applicant, they must have already successfully completed and provided to the Senior Trainer as evidence:

TLI41410 or TLI41416 – Certificate IV in Transport and Logistics (Road Transport – Motorcycle Riding Instruction)

TAE40110 – Certificate IV in Training and Assessment OR

TAEASS401 – Plan assessment activities and processes and TAEASS402 – Assess competence  (two assessment competency units)

The Senior Trainer must deliver the Q-Ride curriculum training in accordance with the Senior Trainer Package, as has been occurring for training to the ART’s.  However, as the participants are not yet qualified, additional training and support are strongly encouraged.  Additional training may include participating as a student in Q-Ride classes, which will provide a student perspective and be shadowing/observing and debriefing with the Senior Trainer, which will provide an ART’s perspective.

ART training will take somewhere around 3-5 days….best to check directly with a senior trainer to be sure.

Providing this service is a commercial decision and TMR has not set a fee.  So it will be up to RSPs and Senior Trainers as to whether a fee is set for training.

It is also not a compulsory requirement for all Senior Trainers to deliver curriculum training to ART applicants but rather an opportunity for a Senior Trainer to support quality training in their industry.

As is currently required, RSP’s must notify the Q-Ride Administrator on qride@tmr.qld.gov.au of all Senior Trainer training events.

If you wish to undergo the new Q-Ride curriculum training with a senior trainer, please contact the RSPs directly.

To find potential Senior Trainers who may assist you, please go to the following website link…


The new Q-Ride curriculum training with a senior trainer is outside of the training and assessment Watto Training will conduct to get you qualified.

Unfortunately, we cannot bundle up the qualification and the ART training to be done at the same time, there is a specific order that we must follow as outlined above by TMR.

A student who wishes to cancel their enrolment must give notice in writing. This may be via email or letter. Watto Training staff who are approached with the initial notice of cancellation are to ensure the student understands their rights with regards to the refunding of tuition fees. The student is also to be advised of other options such as suspending the enrolment and re-commencing in another scheduled training program.

Students who give written notice to cancel their enrolment and who are eligible for a refund are to be provided with a Refund Request Form. The student who may not be eligible but is requesting a refund should also be provided with the request form so the request can be properly considered by the Chief Executive Officer.


The following refund policy will apply:

Students who give notice to cancel their enrolment more than 10 days prior to the commencement of a program will be entitled to a full refund of fees paid.

Students who give notice to cancel their enrolment less than 10 days prior to the commencement of a program will be entitled to a 75% refund of fees paid. The amount retained (25%) by Watto Training is required to cover the costs of staff and resources which will have already been committed based on the student’s initial intention to undertake the training.

Students who cancel their enrolment after a training program has commenced will not be entitled to a refund of fees.

Discretion may be exercised by the Chief Executive Officer in all situations if the student can demonstrate that extenuating or significant personal circumstance led to their withdrawal. In these cases, the student should be offered a full credit toward the tuition fee in another scheduled program in lieu of a refund. Chief Executive Officer may also authorise a refund of tuition fees if the circumstances require it.

Where refunds are approved, the refund payment must be paid to the student within 14 days from the time the student gave written notice to cancel their enrolment. Tuition refunds are to be paid via electronic funds transfer using the authorised bank account nominated by the student on the Refund Request Form.

Our Guarantee to Clients

If for any reason Watto Training is unable to fulfil its service agreement with a student, Watto Training must issue a full refund for any services not provided. The basis for determining “services not provided” is to be based on the units of competency completed by the student and which can be issued in a statement of attainment at the time the service is terminated.

Privacy Policy

Watto Training takes the privacy of students very seriously and complies with all legislative requirements. These include the Privacy Act 1988 and National Privacy Principles (2008). 

Unique Student Identifier (USI)

Q: What is the Unique Student Identifier (USI)?

A Unique Student Identifier (USI) is a reference number made up of numbers and letters that give students access to their USI account. A USI will allow an individual’s USI account to be linked to the National Vocational Education and Training (VET) Data Collection allowing an individual to see all of their training results from all providers including all completed training units and qualifications.

The USI will make it easier for students to find and collate their VET achievements into a single authenticated transcript. It will also ensure that students’ VET records are not lost.

Q: What does it cost?

The USI is available online and at no cost to the student. This USI will stay with the student for life and be recorded with any nationally recognised VET course that is completed.

Q: What are the benefits of a USI?

Seamlessly link information about a student’s VET achievements, regardless of where they studied

Enable students to easily access secure digital transcripts of their achievements

Give students access to, and more control over, their educational information

If you do not have a USI or cannot get one, you can give permission for Watto Training to obtain one on your behalf on the course enrolment form.
