What is The Diploma of Logistics TLI50415?
Every few years, the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) update course rules and the way that they are packaged to continually meet the needs of industry. This ensures the skills and knowledge gained by graduates of these training packages are work force ready.
The Diploma of Logistics – TLI50415 is the newly updated course which supersedes the old TLI50410 course (which is the 2010 qualification). By studying the newest iteration of the Diploma of Logistics, you are ensuring that you meet the new training standards as set out by the logistics industry and that you have the most up to date skills and qualification available in the competitive job market.
Is the old course still valid?
Yes. However I describe it like driving an older model car as opposed to the newest model with all the bells and whistles. The older model may still get you from A to B, but it will be more prone to breakdowns, have worse economy, a lower re-sale value, will eventually need to be updated and it will not be as well respected in the workplace!
If you are looking at studying the Diploma of Logistics, you will not be eligible to enrol in the old TLI50410 course as of the 1st of January 2016. You must enrol in the new course TLI50415 as set out by the national regualtror ASQA.

If you’re reading this, then absolutely! The new Diploma of Logistics – TLI50415 in consultation with the Transport and Logistics Industry Skills Council has been specifically designed to meet the needs of the logistics industry.
