Training at the VWMA


The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in necessary restrictions on indoor gatherings. The VWMA, therefore, will not be able to offer face to face training for drivers for prescribed industrial waste until the current restrictions are eased.

To ensure drivers who either require training to enable their certificates to be reissued (certificate is about to expire) or require training to enable a new certificate to be issued, the VWMA has developed the course so it can be delivered remotely.

This guideline explains EPA’s vehicle permitting application process in relation to the transport of prescribed industrial waste in Victoria. It forms part of the Industrial Waste Resource Guidelines, which offer guidance for wastes and resources regulated under the Environment Protection (Industrial Waste Resource) Regulations 2009.
