The ALLMI Slinger/Signaller course content is very comprehensive and so cardholders are able to use their skills when performing Slinger / Signaller duties with any type of lifting equipment, not just lorry loaders. The Slinger / Signaller course consists of 13 modules. The course direction is one day for experienced candidates and a minimum of two days for novice candidates. A maximum of four candidates can attend a course. Both courses culminate in a written and practical examination.
The assessment process is set by ALLMI Ltd and administered by the instructor, it consists of two theoretical assessments and one practical. The theoretical assessment consists of a set of multiple choise and ‘open’ questions. The practical assessment is designed to identify whether the candidate has the appropriate practical skills to perform his / her 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 certificate and identity card 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.
The strength of ALLMI training comes from the technical training knowledge on its Training Standards Committee. The Committee is made up of training and technical professionals from all major loader crane manufacturers and importers within the UK. In addition the Health and Safety Executive is represented. The Committee develops, consults upon and maintains all the training standards set by ALLMI.
All ALLMI Courses can qualify for training hours towards Driver CPC periodic training including the Slinger/Signaller course.
