Operator Training

  • Course Content

    The ALLMI Operator course consists of 15 modules (please click here for a list of course modules). The course duration is one day for experienced candidates and a minimum of two days for novice candidates. Both the one and two day courses culminate in a written and practical examination.  ALLMI is notified (by the instructor) of all courses in advance of the training taking place (via ALLMI's online registration system), so that unannounced instructor audits can be carried out.

  • Assessment

    The assessment process is set by ALLMI and administered by the instructor. It consists of two theoretical assessments and one practical. The theoretical assessments consist of a set of core multiple choice and ‘open’ questions, as well as questions which relate specifically to the crane attachment being used. The practical assessment is designed to identify whether the candidate has the appropriate practical skills to operate a lorry loader safely and efficiently.

  • Certification

    Upon successful completion of the course, every candidate will receive an identity card and certificate, and will be registered on the ALLMI Operator database.

Both the identity card and certificate state the categories for which the operator is licensed. Click here to see the ALLMI training categories. Candidates also receive the ALLMI Operator’s manual, which is used as a reference guide throughout their career. ALLMI Operator's Manual.

  • Industry Expertise

    The strength of ALLMI training comes from the technical and training knowledge on its Training Standards Committee. The Committee is made up of training and technical professionals from all the major loader crane manufacturers and importers within the UK. In addition, the Health and Safety Executive is represented. The Committee develops, consults upon and maintains all the training standards set by ALLMI.
