Training Course Dates
Below we give the dates and locations of courses for in-house Trainers and also give an indication regarding availability of places left on them.
We do try and update this page with new dates as they are confirmed, however courses can fill up quickly and so may not get listed. It will usually be best to contact us with your requirements.

The latest PATS Trainers Refresher course is now (finally) available, called the Gold Round it is held over one day.
The ‘Blue’ Round of MiDAS has been superseded by the new ‘Gold’ Round and DAT Refresher courses, held over one day, are running.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. If you have a certificate that has expired, or is about to expire just carry on with what you are currently doing and contact us so that we can keep you in touch with developments.
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.
