Specialist Transport Operations



For those undertaking Specialist Transport Operations we can provide the training required, from Managing Abnormal Loads to Driver Awareness and Driver's Assistants, we can equip you with the knowledge of operational processes and procedures to ensure compliance responsibilities are met. 

It is the responsibility of hauliers to satisfy themselves that their own personnel are sufficiently competent to undertake the task of driving abnormal loads or abnormal vehicles. Competent means that they are suitably trained and/or experienced for the role.  Our Specialist Transport Operations Training Courses cover the duties, rules and regulations alongside the operational processes required to undertake these tasks.

New to our Training programme for 2016 both the City & Guilds Level 2 Certificate of Competence in Abnormal Loads (Escort Driver) and City & Guilds Level 3 Certificate of Competence in Abnormal Loads (Escort Manager) training courses equip individuals with the required skills to sufficiently undertake the task of escorting abnormal loads or abnormal load vehicles.

The first of their kind, these two courses launched by the Heavy Transport Association aim to improve public safety through training of abnormal load escorts leading to improved competence. Presently anyone aged 21 or over with a car licence, a vehicle, some amber flashing lights and an ‘Abnormal Load’ sign can become an escort without any training, knowledge of the legislation or a check of competence.
