On Site Hazardous Goods Training Supplied by Novadata
Shipping News Feature

UK – As road haulage and other logistics organisations find themselves subject to more and more regulations the importance of ensuring staff are not just experienced but hold all the up to date qualifications necessary to ensure they work in a safe and professional manner has become paramount. Training for specific roles and hazards has never been so important but what happens when off site training by a suitably invested company is not practical for geographical reasons? Transport training specialists Novadata announced earlier this year that it has arranged to deliver a set of *ADR Courses to drivers of freight forwarding company Condor Logistics in the Channel Islands.

These ADR Courses are normally delivered at registered centres in the mainland United Kingdom under the supervision of the Scottish Qualification Authority (SQA), however, a custom made course was designed for delivery to Condor Logistics drivers in the Channel Islands, which was registered with the SQA and approved by the Department for Transport, before being delivered to the company’s drivers at locations in Jersey and Guernsey.

Novadata also offers are a wide range of Initial and Refresher ADR courses. These courses are scheduled for every month of the year and cover Packages, Tanks and all the popular classes. ADR Explosives and Radio-active instructional teach ins are also run on a regular basis and the ADR Examinations can now be taken online. Candidates who choose to take their exams online (subject to accessibility with the SQA servers) are able to receive instant results.
