Professional training for Sit-In ATV drivers using either conventional or skid-steered machines. Our network of professional all-terrain vehicle trainers will provide RoSPA Sit-In ATV certificated courses to assist with your PUWER compliance. (Beyond Driving also run RoSPA Quad Bike Training.)
RoSPA Sit-In ATV Courses:
Our experienced specialist ATV instructors will ensure that your operators get the most from their training. Whether your employees are using their machines on hard ground around car parks or pedestrian areas, or in testing off-road conditions, health and safety as well as efficiency will be required. With additional modules covering loading, securing for transport, towing trailers or trailed equipment and the operation of attachments can be included to ensure that the training is appropriate to your needs.
Snowploughs and Gritting Trailers
We also regularly adapt our ATV and quad bike courses to include the use of snowploughs and gritter trailers, where clients require machines and personnel to clear car parks and communal areas of snow and ice. This training has been developed with estates managers from university campuses and hospitals, as well as commercial premises, shopping centres and business parks preparing their winter resilience plans.
