Retail Fuel Industry Training Solutions
For front-line retail staff the Petrol Convenience Compliance (PCC) course focuses on ensuring staff are aware of the risks, hazards and controls associated with their work, and know what to do to keep themselves, your customers and your business safe and compliant.
The PCC course includes rich multimedia modules and assessments on:
- Restricted Products Compliance
- Personal Safety
- Tobacco Compliance
- Environmental Safety
- Retail and Consumer Compliance
- Forecourt Safety
- Fire First Response
- LPG and Autogas Safety
- Armed Robbery and Security
- Food Safety
- In-store Safety and Manual Handling
Recognised across brands and operators, the PCC forms an excellent basis for keeping compliance front of mind for experienced staff, and for exposing new staff to the realities of compliance and safety requirements that apply to a retail fuel site.
The Petroleum Convenience Compliance course also available in a specific Petroleum Convenience Compliance New Zealand (PCCNZ) course. The PCCNZ was developed with the involvement and support of the MTANZ and in consultation with WorkSafe NZ and is recognised as meeting the required standard of training that WorkSafe NZ requires when certifying sites as safe to operate.
The Petroleum Convenience Compliance course is also available in a generic International format and is currently delivered in more than 6 countries outside of Australia and New Zealand.
Wholesale Fuel Industry Training Solutions
For wholesale fuel staff the NPCRS Delivering Fuel course focuses on ensuring staff are refreshed on the risks and hazards of delivering to a fuel retail site. Recognising that fuel delivery drivers are extensively trained and qualified, this short course is focused on refreshing the additional risks that the retail site poses.
Fuel Industry Contractor Training Solutions
For those who do works on a fuel site, it is important that they have a demonstrated understanding of the risks and hazards associated with undertaking works (from lawnmowing to concrete cutting to fuel site design and installation). The NPCRS Introduction to Working on Fuel Sites course offers an excellent site induction course that exposes contractors to the specific risks and hazards that a fuel site encompasses. Offered as part of the National Petroleum Contractor Recognition Scheme (NPCRS) this course is delivered online.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, in May 2020 ACAPMA released a set of free COVIDAwarness Courses for Retail, Wholesale and Administration. These courses are delivered online and available free to all ACAPMA Members.
