The latest PATS Trainers Refresher course is now (finally) available, called the Gold Round it is held over one day.
The ‘Gold’ Round of MiDAS has been superseded by the new ‘Purple’ Round and DAT Refresher courses, held over one day, are running.
The Refresher course for the Car and MPV Observers (already delayed by over one year) still has no anticipated launch date. We have carried out an uodate (with the full knowledge of Hampshire CC and the CTA.
If you are offered refresher training it is advisable to question what new material is available and whether it has been sanctioned by the CTA as ‘official’.
If you would like to discuss a course, on your site, for Minibus Drivers, Car / MPV Drivers or Passenger Assistants (Escorts) please contact us.
