Thorough Examiner Course Revision

The importance of ALLMI’s Thorough Examiner course continues to be underlined, with the Association experiencing 13% growth in demand during its last financial year, as well as a further 10% rise for 2019/20 YTD.

In spite of its increasing recognition, one of the Association’s key projects for the second half of this year is to review and update this ever-popular training programme.

ALLMI Technical Manager, Keith Silvester, comments “The training provides a very high benchmark for Thorough Examination and Load Testing practices, which is essential, given that these activities are fundamental to the safe use of lorry loaders.”

He continues “Since its inception in 2007, the course has gone from strength to strength in terms of both industry recognition and uptake by members, cementing its place as by far the most credible training of its type. However, as with all ALLMI courses, our ethos is always to evolve and improve the training, taking into account employer and candidate feedback, and ensuring that it continues to lead the way in terms of reflecting industry good practice, product development, standards and legislation. To this end, we’ll be working closely with our Technical Standards Committee over the coming months to explore a series of developments that will further enhance the programme in terms of course content, documentation and methods of delivery, all of which will directly benefit manufacturer / service company members, as well as having a positive impact on the wider industry.”
