Last week we mentioned some of the new courses we’ll be delivering this year: Award in Health and Safety within the Workplace, Basic Racking Repair Course, Operator Licence Awareness Training, Pivot Steer (Bendi or Flexi) Course. This week we can bring you news about the other 4 training courses we will also be delivering: Trailer/Caravan Manoeuvring Course, Transport Managers’ Refresher Course, Transportable Truck (Moffet Mounty) course and a new Racking Inspection Course. Here’s a brief overview of each of the courses.

 

Trailer/Caravan Manoeuvring Course

 

This course is designed to teach candidates the skills and knowledge needed to drive and manoeuvre a vehicle and trailer. It should be noted that this course is ideally best-suited for experienced car drivers who hold the relevant licence. The course will cover visual checks on the vehicle and trailer, as well as driving position and mirror adjustment. The training course is designed to help drivers deal with awkward vehicle/trailer manoeuvres through off-road training.

 

The course prospectus will cover:

 

  • course Introduction
  • conducting a pre-use vehicle and trailer check
  • coupling and uncoupling
  • forward driving and positioning
  • start line reversing using mirrors

Please note, the practical aspect of the course delivery will be undertaken on our private manoeuvring area.

 

This 4-hour training course will be delivered throughout the year, and training will take place at our Atherton Headquarters, but can be delivered at customers’ premises if required.

 

Transportable Truck (Moffet Mounty)

 

This training course will provide candidates with the knowledge and skills necessary to be able to operate the machine in different applications, on-site and on public highways.

The course prospectus will cover:

 

  • operation of the machine
  • risk evaluation for public areas
  • transportation of machine safety
  • correct dismount/mount of machine on vehicles

  • novice – 5 days
  • conversion – 2 days
  • refresher – 1 day

 

 

Transport Managers Refresher Course

This course is designed to refresh the candidate’s knowledge of transport legislation and key operational areas within the syllabus, including any recent legislative updates. It also enables the candidate to ensure that they are operating in a legal and compliant manner.

 

The course prospectus will cover:

 

  • driving licensing
  • driver hours/WTD and record keeping

Racking Inspection Course

This course is designed to give learners a sound knowledge of the correct procedures that need to be adopted to conduct inspections on Dexion-style freestanding racking. The course will also help learners to understand how to correctly undertake the recording of information during safety inspections in line with legislation and compliance.

This training course will take place throughout the year. Training will take place over a single day to suit clients and will be delivered at the customers’ premises.
