Bradshaw Train the Trainer Course


  • Who is the train the trainer course for and why?

    The aim of the course is to provide nominated staff with the necessary knowledge and ability to develop and deliver their own operator training course and assessment on any Bradshaw or related product, to a competent level in their working environment.

    Careful consideration should be taken when deciding which members of staff should attend the course.  The nominated staff member/s should:

    • Be an experienced operator who ideally holds an operator’s certificate, which is valid and in date.
    • Have a good understanding of the vehicle to be used.
    • Be willing to embrace the responsibility of training their colleagues.
    • Have the confidence to clarify health & safety and operational matters.


    The HSE state that under the provision and use of work equipment regulations (PUWER) 1998 under regulation 9 – Training: “Every employer should ensure that all persons who use work equipment have received adequate training for purposes of health and safety, including training in the methods which may be adopted when using the work equipment, any risks which such use may entail and precautions to be taken.”


    The course will cover:Vehicle Training


    • Information gathering including health and safety responsibilities and legislation.
    • Obligations and responsibilities of a trainer and expectations of the trainee.
    • Outline battery and charger safety procedures.
    • How to perform pre-drive vehicle checks.
    • Familiarisation with vehicle controls, equipment and drive characteristics.
    • Instructing and training on operating the vehicle and performing manoeuvres.

    Refreshment and lunch breaks will be taken at an agreed time for the group.

    The agreed cost for training at your site includes:

    • All expenses
    • Training materials
    • Assessment
    • Certification
  • How long will the course take

    The train the training course can usually be successfully achieved within one working day, plus an additional task to prove trainer competency which is done after the course has finished.  The maximum number of participants is four.

  • All delegates must be present throughout their course to be eligible for certification.

    To receive the Bradshaw vehicle train the trainer qualification and certificate, the participants must create and send proof (via email) of a training plan which is specific to their working environment.  The training plan must be received by Bradshaw within 30 days of the course date for final assessment.

    Once the training plan is deemed sufficient to meet assessment criteria, certificates will be issued and the Bradshaw vehicle train the trainer qualification will be valid for five years.  For best practice we recommend the trainer to attend the operator refresher course every two years.

What Our Customers Say...

  • "My training at Bradshaw was carried out at their premises in Stibbington.  Everyone that I met there was very welcoming and friendly.  Ken Hill is a very knowledgeable trainer with a low key style of delivery set at a pace to suit the individual trainee. The emphasis of the training is on the safe handling of the vehicle.  I now feel confident in operating the vehicle safely and with the passenger experience in mind."
    John McDermott | Health & Safety Trainer | Healthy Business

The course was delivered in a very professional and personable manner.”
