Driver and Operator Training and Careers


Toi EDA established Te Ara Huringa ō Pupuwharau in August 2019, in response to strong demand for more driver and operator training in the Eastern Bay. For our communities to thrive, we need industry development, and that all depends on the efficient movement of goods and people!
Three training providers work from the Centre currently, and have mapped out a range of short and longer programmes targeted to industry demand. The Centre is dedicated to encouraging and enabling more rangatahi and young people choose and prepare for jobs in freight and logistics industries, and well as upskilling existing personnel. It's located at 15 Manukorihi Drive
