ALLMI Slinger Signaller Training

ALLMI SLINGER SIGNALLER TRAINING

Available throughout Scotland

 

ALLMI SLINGER SIGNALLER TRAINING

The ALLMI Slinger / Signaller course is approved by CSCS

The ALLMI Slinger / Signaller course content is extremely comprehensive and so cardholders are able to use their skills when performing Slinger / Signaller duties with other types of lifting equipment, not just lorry loaders.

Duration: One day for experienced candidates and a minimum of two days for novice candidates.

Delegates: A maximum of four candidates can attend a course

Assessment: Both courses culminate in a written and practical examination.

The assessment process is set by ALLMI and administered by the Instructor. It consists of two theoretical assessments and one practical. The theoretical assessments consist of a set of multiple choice and ‘open’ questions.  The practical assessment is designed to identify whether the candidate has the appropriate practical skills to perform their duties as a Slinger / Signaller safely and efficiently.

Upon successful completion of the course every candidate will receive an identity card and certificate, and will be registered on the ALLMI database. The identity card and certificate are valid for five years, after which time refresher training and assessments will need to be undertaken.  Candidates also receive the ALLMI Slinger / Signaller manual, which is used as a reference guide throughout their career.
