A major strength of ITLS is its success and reputation in the custom design and delivery of training programs to suit the needs of particular organisations. ITLS has appropriate infrastructure to delivery award and non-award programs anywhere in Australia, programs that may be delivered in face-to-face, distance and / or on-line mode. We hope that future partnerships with industry will assist us in the upgrading of some infrastructure in a way that recognises the industry partner's support and secures world class facilities for delivering a training and education program. There are significant tax incentives for such activity. We always encourage a strong quality partnership between ITLS and a specific organisation or industry association in the development and execution of such programs. Such a partnership would involve some component of teaching by industry personnel. To illustrate this capability we refer to the very strong association and quality partnership forged between ITLS and the Bus and Coach Association of NSW and with the Roads and Traffic Authority of NSW.

In partnership with the Bus and Coach Association of NSW ITLS has developed a program designed to meet the requirements for accreditation for bus and coach companies in NSW under the Passenger Transport Act, as well as executive programs in this area. ITLS offers an online accreditation program (minimum standards) for new entrants to the industry and for incumbents wishing to stay up to date on accreditation requirements as part of the annual self audit. In addition, we offer a Certificate of Bus and Coach Operations for supervisors and a Certificate of Transport Management for managers and advisers to the industry.
