How to get your LGV operations back on track with training

Blogs | 7th Jun 2021
LGV Training

For any organisation with LGV operations, getting training on track post-lockdown is vital for keeping drivers safe, ensuring compliance, and meeting ongoing demand. But how can businesses overcome the challenges of a training backlog?

While much urgent and essential training has continued throughout the lockdowns and restrictions, LGV training schedules in particular have typically fallen behind as safety measures prevented most in-cab training. Yet as restrictions ease and training resumes, courses are in high demand, making it challenging for employers to train everyone they need to in a timely manner.

In-house training can help

One way to counter this, is for businesses to have LGV Instructors, LGV Assessors and Driver CPC Instructors that provide training in-house. Whether your organisation is looking to bring this expertise in-house for the first time, or extend your team to better manage training demand, the RTITB Instructor Academy can help with the ‘train the trainer’ courses you need to thrive after lockdown.

Our courses provide you with confident Instructors and Assessors who can deliver the training that helps you manage costs and improve safety for your operations.

What’s more, a training course at the RTITB Instructor Academy also prepares candidates for the independent National Register of LGV Instructors (NRI) examination, allowing them to join the register upon completion of the course.

By carrying out LGV Instructor Training with the RTITB Instructor Academy and taking driver training in-house, you’ll benefit from more closely overseeing the growth and development of your own staff. All of this contributes to training engaged drivers, loyal to your business and it is absolutely essential in these challenging times to retain drivers as it is already incredibly difficult to find more – what’s more, retaining drivers will avoid creating bigger problems further down the line.

What’s more, by having an in-house driving standards professional who’s easily accessible to your team on-site, you can reduce risks by ensuring that standards are maintained or that improvements are worked on site wide.

Book now – LGV Assessor Training

The COVID-19 pandemic kept the transport and logistics industries busier than ever and LGV Instructors had no time to spare to support certain activities. This is where an LGV Assessor can prove a real asset. For instance, they can assess the skills of potential employees before you make any decisions that may turn out to be costly and time consuming.

With successful completion of an LGV Assessor training course at the RTITB Instructor Academy, you will have a professional on-site at all times to conduct pre-employment driving assessments, ensure that your existing drivers’ skills are up to scratch, help investigate issues following incidents, analyse maintenance costs, and much more.

Book now – Driver CPC Training

Many supply chain organisations have been kept busier than ever over the last 12 months or so – meaning that time for Driver CPC Periodic Training has been hard to find. However, now is the time to deal with backlog and get on top of your Driver CPC training hours.

With an in-house Driver CPC Instructor, you can minimise this disruption and get training hours back on track, preventing a bottleneck further down the line. Choose from either a classroom-based course at the RTITB Instructor Academy, or a remote course delivered live online by one of our experts.
