There are 3 levels of experience

  • Novice: Where full training is required. 3 Candidates: 1 Machine: 1 Instructor: Duration 1-2 days
  • Refresher and Test: Where candidates require refresher training and may need some remedial tuition. 3 Candidates: 1 Machine: 1 Instructor: 1 Day
  • Experienced Worker Test (EWT): This is just testing only 6 Candidates: 1 Machine: 1 Instructor: 1 Day

There is also an alternative testing option for EWT candidates.   As there are different variations of ATV, we are able to test on both

For example:

Experienced Worker Test (EWT): 3 Candidates: 2 Machines: 1 Instructor: 1 Day
i.e. 3 candidates tested on both Sit Astride and Sit in ATV’s ~ i.e. 6 tests in one day.
