The course proposed is a half day or full day (advanced driver training to include any specific areas of training such as speed awareness, parking & manoeuvring and fuel-save) in duration and begins with a briefing and objective setting session; this also provides the opportunity for delegates to offer any specific concerns relating to their general driving or any of the course content.
Setting the scene for any training course is of paramount importance and this particular briefing will cover the reasons for the course which may include the trainee’s driving performance or may be as part of a company’s H&S policy.
As with all Network Rail practical training courses, this course includes a pre course Network Rail Driver Profiler (on-line NRDP) and post training, a full course report will be e-mailed directly to the participant and course administrator as required. This ensures that full H&S Duty of Care responsibilities are covered.
Following the briefing the course will commence with an eyesight and vehicle check. Our trainer will then take to the wheel to demonstrate many of the aspects covered in the briefing and to further set the scene. Following this the trainee will then drive for the remainder of the session, taking breaks where required, covering the below;
Any driver who requires ‘Standard’ driver training who may need additional help with any area of driving skills, to include speed awareness, fuel-save, parking & manoeuvring or a general refresher driver training course.
Any driver who is using an unfamiliar vehicle, example a driver moving up from a car to a van (LCV) and requires training / assessment in the vehicle.
A full and detailed report will be produced post training / assessment for the driver, course booker and Road Fleet team as required.
