RTO Insurance for Trainers and Assessors


If you are an RTO, Trainer and/or Assessor in the Transport, Construction, Plant, Aviation or other related industry, and are required to have Professional Indemnity Insurance & Public Liability Insurance, you need to read this!

In conjunction with Austbrokers AEI, DUAL PI and Zurich Liability, TRANZnet members are now able to access RTO Insurance, Professional Indemnity insurance (PI) and Public Liability insurance (PL) at a very competitive price. To apply for Membership click here.

With changes to the name of licenses for various types of plant such as forklifts, elevated work platforms, etc. as well as HRW areas all coming under the new “Licence to Perform High Risk Work” name, a lot of insurance companies could not understand that only the name had changed, and in fact, training and assessment for these licenses were becoming more stringent. The role of the Regulator in each jurisdiction as an “overseer” of the activity was virtually ignored.

This is the best coverage and value for money that we can find on the insurance market!

The policy is quoted on a number of criteria such as turnover, how many trainers/assessors under the policy, etc. It is available to small one person operations up to larger national RTOs, providing the owner of the entity is a financial member of TRANZnet. A copy of the Professional Indemnity Policy is available for your perusal. DON’T DELAY, download and complete a Proposal Form and a Liability Questionnaire and send it to Jim Bailey of Austbrokers AEI

Unfortunately the “High Risk” part of the name caused most insurance companies to state that this would require a separate policy and would dramatically increase prices. Another problem was the perception of Risk associated with our member’s Dangerous Goods training.

After meeting with representatives from Austbrokers AEI, DUAL PI and Zurich Liability, we were able to demonstrate that training and assessment in these areas usually occurred in controlled environments with reduced risks, unlike car and heavy vehicle training and assessments that are conducted in with the general public.

Consequently DUAL PI and Zurich Liability came back with a very attractive Professional Indemnity (PI) and Public Liability (PL) policy that includes a Statutory Liability Optional Extension. The cover includes all of our training activities, and also covers the provision of advice by consultants in these same areas.
