This section is focused on ‘skills based’ competencies, whether in the workshop, in the yard, or out on the road. 

This year, we have improved our support services to FTA qualified driver assessors, by launching ‘Drive-ASSESS’. This dedicated website gives assessors access to resources and information plus they can also keep track of their Continuing Professional Development (CPD).  

Our range of engineering courses addresses the cornerstone of operator licensing: vehicle maintenance. Successful implementation in this area safeguards public safety but also demonstrates effective risk management and delivers commercial benefits.

 

With FTA’s technical training, your organisation benefits from:

  • Industry best practice – ensuring your drivers and vehicles remain safe and cost effective.
  • Peace of mind – only qualified and quality-assured Instructors and engineers conduct our training.
  • All Train-the-Trainer courses come with the supporting materials required to cascade training throughout your organisation.
