Heavy Vehicle Technology Program

The Wodonga TAFE Heavy Vehicle Technology Program is a game-changer for the region and beyond, meeting the needs of Defence, the heavy vehicle industry, emergency services, the transport sector and education in one innovative facility.

Wodonga TAFE's Heavy Vehicle Technology Program plans a state-of-the-art innovative heavy vehicle training and experimentation facility, the technical training courses of the future, and a high school to industry pathway scheme. It will be a game changer for the nation. 

The program will provide comprehensive multi-use facilities and resources that can meet the needs of national industry, the transport sector, emergency services, schools, and academia. As the only facility of its kind in the country, this program will play a pivotal role in Australia’s scientific and industrial future.

The Heavy Vehicle Technology Program is about more than just driver safety — it will add Australian skills, expertise, and jobs through investment in advanced technical trades. Wodonga TAFE's Heavy Vehicle Program will deliver a state-of-the-art proving, experimentation and training ground providing comprehensive driver training for heavy vehicle operators.

The program will also transform Wodonga TAFE’s technical training offerings to include robotics, mechatronics, autonomous systems, electric vehicle mechanics and hydrogen powered propulsion.  

Our future infrastructure and future training will arm the future workforce and we will offer high-schools STEM pathways to industry to build that workforce in the region and nationally.

The Program will not only create hundreds of jobs and deliver a highly skilled workforce, but it will also make Australia’s heavy and autonomous vehicle and robotics operation’s more advanced, and safer for Industry including students and trainers.

Wodonga TAFE's Heavy Vehicle Technology Program is a once-in-a-generation opportunity and is a program of national importance. It will be a great investment for the nation as the program is designed in alignment with Australia's broader sovereign industrial capability priorities.

The program is ready to progress to detailed design and construction and is currently seeking Federal and State funding support.

Wodonga TAFE's Heavy Vehicle Technology Program will deliver a state-of-the-art proving, experimentation and training ground for heavy robotics and autonomous system. It will also be providing comprehensive driver training for the heavy vehicle operators


Wodonga TAFE's Heavy Vehicle Technology Program at Logic Campus is an economic and societal game-changer for Albury/Wodonga and the Greater Hume region, bringing secure jobs, long-term investment and training opportunities to the region for years to come.

The program is expected to generate more than $70 million in gross regional product, including 100 jobs across the four-year development timeframe.


The facility is ideally placed at the epicentre of freight movement on the east coast. It will sit nearby multiple major road freight corridors and Australia’s largest infrastructure project, Inland Rail.


The Heavy Vehicle Technology Program is about more than just driver safety — it will add Australian skills, expertise and jobs to Defence through investment in advanced technical trades. It aligns with the nation’s Sovereign Industrial Capability Priorities including robotics and cyber.


Wodonga TAFE understands Defence through its long and established relationship with the Army Logistic Training Centre in the delivery of a world-class heavy vehicle driver training to Defence. Investment in the facility isn’t just about supporting Defence capability and improving heavy vehicle operations — it’s about saving lives.
