Train the Trainer

The candidate(s) must have an operators certificate from an Accredited Training Company (i.e. not an In House certificate). The operator must have attended a refresher course within the last 6- 12 months.  Confirmation is needed prior to attending the course.  The In House Trainer can train, test and issue a certificate to their company’s employees only on truck / equipment for which they themselves have carried out the Train the Trainer course on.

The following instructions are designed to assist you in preparing yourself for a 3 day In House Trainer Course.
