Basic Fatigue Management Level 1 (AWARENESS)

Course Description

The ‘Basic Fatigue Management Level 1 (Awareness)’ course uses the course content from our nationally recognised ‘Fatigue Management Level 1’ (TLIF2010 Apply Fatigue Management Strategies) but with basic quiz-based assessment only. This course is an introductory course only and is not nationally recognised for ‘TLIF2010 Apply Fatigue Management Strategies’.

You will receive a Certificate of Completion only – not a Statement of Attainment. You should complete this course if you are not currently working or are not in a job where you are able to demonstrate the application of fatigue management strategies. If you do start working or change job roles, this course can be upgraded to the nationally recognised ‘Fatigue Management Level 1’ course on completion of the additional assessment tasks (including the Case Study, Short Answer and Practical Assessments) and further payment.

Course Outline

The ‘Basic Fatigue Management Level 1 (Awareness)’ course will provide you with an introduction to the strategies used to minimise fatigue for drivers and operators. On completion of the ‘Basic Fatigue Management Level 1 (Awareness)’ course, you will be able to:

  • Explain the importance of fatigue management
  • Identify legislation that supports the management of fatigue
  • Describe the causes, effects and warning signs of fatigue
  • Follow workplace procedures and practices to manage fatigue, and
  • Select appropriate lifestyle choices to manage fatigue

Course Duration

Please allow approximately 2.5-3 hours to complete this course and the online assessment quizzes to get the Certificate of Completion. If you want to upgrade to the nationally recognised ‘Fatigue Management Level 1’ course to get the full Statement of Attainment, you will need to allow another 1-1.5 hours to complete the additional assessments tasks.

Fatigue Management Level 1 (TLIF2010)

Course Code

TLIF2010 Apply Fatigue Management Strategies

Course Outline

The ‘Fatigue Management – Level 1’ course will provide you with the skills and knowledge to implement strategies to minimise fatigue for drivers and operators. In addition, if you are a driver or operator, you will be able to recognise your own signs of fatigue, take action if you become fatigued and make lifestyle choices that reduce the potential for fatigue. On completion of the ‘Fatigue Management – Level 1’ course, you will be able to:

  • Explain the importance of fatigue management
  • Identify legislation that supports the management of fatigue
  • Describe the causes, effects and warning signs of fatigue
  • Follow workplace procedures and practices to manage fatigue, and
  • Select appropriate lifestyle choices to manage fatigue

This course is an interactive and engaging way to build your knowledge and understanding of ways to reduce or eliminate fatigue-related risks in the workplace; however, This nationally recognised training is not suitable if you are a driver working (or wishing to work) under Basic Fatigue Management (BFM) or Advanced Fatigue Management (AFM) under the National Heavy Vehicle Accreditation Scheme, for this purpose, you will need to complete the new TLIF0005 – Apply a fatigue risk management system unit of competency.

Once you have completed the last module, you will need to complete the final assessments including the Scenario Assessment, Survey, Case Study Assessment, Short Answer Assessment and Practical Assessment.

The Scenario Assessment will present you with a number of realistic workplace scenarios and ask you to answer questions and make decisions, using the knowledge you have gained throughout this course. The Survey is not an assessment but must be completed before moving on to the final Practical Assessment. We value your feedback and the survey will provide the opportunity to answer a number of questions about your thoughts on the ‘Fatigue Management – Level 1’ course.

The Case Study Assessment will present several short case studies and ask a series of supporting questions to demonstrate how you apply your understanding of fatigue management to realistic scenarios. The Short Answer Assessment will ask you a series of online questions that require a short, typed response to demonstrate your understanding of fatigue management related to your workplace and job role. The Practical Assessment will ask you to submit several example documents depending on whether you are a driver, operator, scheduler or supervisor. This will allow you to demonstrate how you are using specific tools in the workplace.

  • If you are a driver, you will need to submit copies of 5 separate days of your driver work diary.
  • If you are an operator, you will need to submit a copy of your ‘Personal Work Commitment Plan’ which you can download at the end of the course.
  • If you are a scheduler, you will need to submit 3 different driver rosters or safe driving plans that you have created, ensuring it is clearly marked whether the driver is operating under standard, BFM or AFM hours.
  • If you are a supervisor, you will need to submit 2 separate days of a driver work diary for a driver that you supervise and 2 separate driver rosters or safe driving plans for a scheduler that you supervise. As a supervisor, you must check these documents before you submit them and if you see any fatigue management issues, they must be corrected first.
  • If you are an aircraft operator, you will need to submit a copy of a 3 day roster using either the template provided or the format used by your workplace.
  • If you are a train driver, you will need to submit a copy of a 3 day roster using either the template provided or the format used by your workplace.
  • If you are a marine vessel operator, you will need to submit a copy of a 3 day roster using either the template provided or the format used by your workplace.

Your documents will be assessed by our team, to confirm they meet the fatigue management guidelines provided in this course (for example, the minimum rest and maximum work times). You can either use the templates provided or equivalent documents used in your workplace (for example, your actual driver work diary). If you are not using the templates provided, make sure that your workplace document provides equivalent information. Once you have passed each of the final assessments, you will receive a confirmation email containing your Statement of Attainment. If you do not pass an assessment, you will receive detailed feedback and be asked to re-submit specific answers or documents.
