How it Works
We provide accredited training for all our 1 day and 2 day course using ZOOM. All the candidates will be linked to a virtual classroom prior to the start of the course. A link will be sent with a due start time prior to the day. All they have to do is click the link and Zoom will do the rest. You can use any computer but it must have a camera and a microphone linked to it. It is even possible to use your mobile phone. The Direct Learning section of the 1 day course is around 5 hours*. It is around 7hr for the Novice Courses. You will need to be seated in an area that is quiet and where you are not likely to be disturbed. In the virtual classroom you will be expected to participate in any discussions and answer questions ect. In fact it is just like being in a real class room. The bulk of the virtual class room course is guided by the use of an ALLMI Power Point presentation which you will be able to see clearly and interact with if you want to. You will also be able to chat with the other candidates in the ‘room’. When a Zoom link to join the course is sent you will also recieve an attachment of some A4 papers to print off prior to the start of the course. Theses will be needed during the presentation and referred to by the Instructor.
It will be pre-arranged that the next day the same instructor who took the Distance Learning course will visit the company. He will arrange to do the written test as a group first and then the individual practical test element of each candidate. This will always include pre-operational checking of the crane equipment and its recording. Safe to use it is then followed by a separate test showing the operators ability to work logically when setting up and putting away the crane equipment along with an accurate and safe operating procedure when using the lorryloader. This visit would be expected to be a minimum of around 2-3 hours*. Full 7 hr for the Novice courses.
At the successful completion of each course each candidate will be left with the ALLMI course manual and a valid temporary certificate to operate for 6 months. This is too cover the time it will take to generate the ID Card/Certificate. That is valid for 5 years from the day of test.
