UPDATE: 3 April 2020

Instructor courses – essential

The RTITB Instructor Academy is able to run a range of courses at its centre in Telford, the West Midlands or at customer premises upon request (and subject to risk assessment) on a 1:1 basis (or 2:1:1 for Lift Truck instructor courses). These courses are for those working in essential parts of the supply chain.

Remote Driver CPC Instructor courses

We are running Driver CPC Instructor courses fully remotely starting 20th April 2020. Hurry, the first courses are proving popular with only 2 places left (at time of writing). More dates will follow.

Booking routine Instructor courses at the RTITB Instructor Academy

The RTITB Instructor Academy is not running routine courses at the centre in Telford, the West Midlands at the moment.
We are taking bookings for instructor courses as usual for July 2020 onwards. Note that these courses are getting full quickly, so it’s worth booking now if you have plans to do courses later in the year.

Remote Instructor theory training

We are running Instructor theory training courses remotely (via video link) for five of our most popular courses.
This will suit those who are furloughed and want to make a start, or for businesses who want their employees to become instructors but don’t want them to travel at the moment. Doing the course in smaller chunks could also be beneficial for people who get a little overwhelmed by one longer course.

Candidates attending this remote theory training will then have 9 months to complete their practical training. Although we strongly recommend this is done within 6 months to reduce the impact of knowledge fade. All prices are shown excluding VAT.
