So proud of our apprentice Brock who made the final cut in the Department of Employment, Small Business and Training's Annual VET Investment Plan. Have a read below to hear what they had to say about our star apprentice in their annual document... “On an OP pathway and considering becoming an electrical engineer, Brock decided to broaden his post school options by exploring what trade qualifications were available to him in the electrical field. With a school based apprenticeship out of the question due to having almost finished Year 12, Brock’s school suggested looking for a work experience placement. A local employer was more than happy to take Brock on over his school holidays, giving him a valuable insight into the trade and in turn setting the course for his future. Whilst Brock continued his studies and graduated with an OP pathway, his enthusiasm and commitment during his work experience saw him score an electrical apprenticeship with his employer #EhlerthElectrical ." - DESBT
We are thrilled to be able to work with the Department of Employment, Small Business and Training to support young apprentices achieve their career goals.

@Regrann from @superior4x4 - Latest Statement - Thursday, September 20, 2018.
"Greater consistency on lift laws for Queensland 4WD owners.
Queensland vehicle lift modification laws will change to be more consistent with other jurisdictions for 4WD motorists across the country after consultation with 4WD groups.
Transport and Main Roads Minister Mark Bailey said he was pleased to announce the first major changes for Queensland’s 4WD lift laws since the Newman Government lift laws were introduced in 2012.
“Next month we will be changing sections of the Queensland Code of Practice, which governs vehicle lift rules,” Mr Bailey said.
“These changes, which follow consultation between my department and industry, will raise the maximum lift certifiable in Queensland from 125mm to 150mm.
“Importantly, this will make Queensland’s maximum lift, with certification, consistent with the National Code Practice and other states.
“For vehicles with Electronic Stability Control (ESC), vehicle owners will be able to raise their vehicles up to 75mm (incorporating a maximum of 50mm suspension and 25mm tyre increase) without certification.
“Queensland already allows such a lift for non-ESC equipped vehicles.
“The move to 75mm without certification, for ESC vehicles will ensure consistency with the rules in NSW and Victoria.”
Mr Bailey said Transport and Main Roads would continue to consult with industry on other aspects of the code, including how to best maintain ESC functionality.
“Our aim is to balance road safety with allowing 4WD enthusiasts the flexibility to manage their driving needs,” he said.
The final version of the new Queensland Code of Practice will be released in October.
