The Rise of ALLMI Training - Another Record Year!

40 years on from the formation of ALLMI, we take a look back at how the Association’s training has developed over the decades into the UK’s leading lorry loader scheme, culminating in record levels of demand.

With its roots firmly planted in the late 1980s and partly born out of the Association’s Code of Practice content, ALLMI training started life as a scheme delivered exclusively by member companies, and which was purely focused on operator instruction.

ALLMI CEO, Tom Wakefield, comments “The content of the programme was always comprehensive and ahead of its time in comparison to other training available. However, the increasing popularity of the course, combined with the wider evolution of training accreditation practices, meant that in 2001 a fresh approach had to be taken.”

This new way of delivering the scheme involved the formation of ALLMI Training Ltd (subsequently merged with ALLMI in 2005), a separate company set up by the Association, designed to take the accreditation service to the next level. Tom Wakefield continues “This move represented the birth of the modern ALLMI training system as we know it today. Central paperwork auditing and data processing were introduced, as well as a more stringent instructor training and monitoring regime, with accreditation also being made available to training companies. All of these fundamentals were quickly built upon, laying a solid foundation for the growth that we experienced over subsequent years.”

ALLMI then continued to evolve in line with industry needs, with further programmes launched in 2006 (Slinger / Signaller), 2007 (Thorough Examiner), 2010 (Appointed Person), and 2012 (Crane Supervisor), as well as a range of Manager courses in more recent years; and appetite for this training shows no signs of slowing.

ALLMI Chairman, Mark Rigby, comments “We are pleased to report yet another period of significant growth, with record demand experienced for each of our lifting team courses during our 2017/18 financial year. When added to further uptake of ALLMI’s increasingly sought-after membership, as well as development on a number of project related fronts, it’s clear the Association is making huge progress and we look forward to continuing this throughout 2018 and beyond.”
