The importance and standing of the ALLMI scheme continue to be underlined, with the Association experiencing a 70% YTD increase in demand for training compared to 2020, and, in the case of many courses, training levels are even exceeding those experienced in 2019.
ALLMI Technical Manager, Keith Silvester, comments “ALLMI has long been regarded as delivering the industry’s leading training programmes for members of the lorry loader lifting team and these latest figures further demonstrate the scheme’s credibility. Whilst training levels obviously dropped for a period in 2020, we made a strong recovery in the second half of the year and that progress has carried forward into 2021. If the current rate of demand continues, it could well result in a record year.”
He adds “To maintain and further strengthen this position, engagement with our numerous committees and working groups is essential, as it helps to ensure that training remains relevant, up-to-date, and the benchmark for safety and good practice. With developments to certain courses well underway, we have a significant amount of consultation planned for the second half of this year and we look forward to keeping the industry informed.”
Being the UK’s only accrediting body to provide specialist training for each member of the lorry loader lifting team, as well as engineers, instructors and managers, ALLMI’s courses are approved by CSCS and delivered to the highest standard. For further details, please click here or contact ALLMI.
