ADR Driver Training – how to cut costs but not corners!

ADR Training

If you’re delivering Dangerous Goods Driver Training already, you’ll know how important it is not to cut corners when it comes to safety and compliance. However, there is a way that you can save money and time, but still ensure high-quality training that meets relevant regulations. Read on to learn how!

Cost-effective ADR Driver Training

For Dangerous Goods Driver Training to be compliant, the course must be approved by SQA, the authority appointed by the Department for Transport. This process requires an investment of your organisation’s time, which has a knock-on effect on cost – we all know that time is money. There are also ongoing costs for audits to consider. So, what’s the alternative?

The RTITB Dangerous Goods Driver Training Consortium enables you to start delivering SQA approved training, without any of the hassle. The training materials you can access as an ADR Consortium member are already SQA approved – we’ve done the hard work for you. As membership includes your SQA approval and audit fees, it makes it much better value than being SQA approved in your own right.

Continued compliance

What’s more, we keep the training course materials up to date so that you don’t have to. The ADR syllabus has recently been updated, this means that even if you have an SQA approved training offering, you’ll need to invest significant time this year in updating it.

Or you could skip that and join the RTITB ADR Consortium instead! We’ll be rolling out our refreshed and SQA approved training materials in 2021, so its an ideal time to save time and money by becoming a member. For continued compliance, any subsequent updates to keep the training current are completely free to consortium members, offering big savings in the long term.

High standards are important to us, so we will provide our full support to help you deliver the best training, including audits to keep your training quality on track.

We know you’re busy. That’s why members of the RTITB Dangerous Goods Driver Training Consortium receive everything they need for instructors to start delivering training fast.
